The Cheerios® Cookbook shares a recipe! Surprise the kids with a snowball in their lunch box. They'll be the envy of the lunchroom!
cup light corn syrup
cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
cups Frosted Cheerios™ cereal
to 2 tablespoons Betty Crocker™ candy sprinkles
Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper. In 3-quart saucepan, heat sugar and corn syrup over medium heat, stirring frequently, just until mixture starts to boil. Remove from heat; stir in peanut butter until melted and smooth.
Stir in cereal until evenly coated. Cool about 5 minutes. While the mixture is cooling, place candy sprinkles in shallow dish.
Lightly spray hands with cooking spray. For each snack, shape 1/4 cup cereal mixture around one small candy. Immediately roll each in candy sprinkles to coat. Place snacks on cookie sheet. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Store in loosely covered container.
