Cheerio Chocolate Bars

Because we all need a little sweet treat. These are so quickly to pull together + they will be gone before you know it.

Sweet, chewy + crunchy. Plus the chocolate that makes its way throughout it all - it's a good one.

Got to love a treat that doesn't involve baking in the oven.

Cheerios Chocolate Bars

4 tablespoons butter

2 cups marshmallows

3 cups cheerios

1 cup semi-chocolate chips

1 tablespoon coconut oil

In a medium sauce pot, melt the butter over medium low heat. When its all melted add in the marshmallows + stir to combine with a rubber spatula. When the marshmallows are nearly all melted + combine turn the heat off.

Stir in the cheerios to incorporate everything together. Using an 8x8 pan (spray with cooking spray, if you like) spread the cereal mixture into the pan + press firmly + around the pan. When the cereal is pressed into the pan - place it in the refrigerator.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate chips + coconut oil in the same sauce pot, over low heat. Stir constantly to prevent the chocolate from burning. When it is melted, turn the heat off.

Pour the chocolate mixture all over the top off the cereal. Spread out with a rubber spatula. Place it back into the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Remove + cut into squares.
