Cheerios Snack Bars

We have lots and lots of Cheerios in the house right now, so I wanted to make a Cheerio dessert.  The Cheerios website has a whole section of recipes on it, and I modified the Banana Nut Snack Bars recipe to make these chocolate covered Cheerio Snack Bars.

  1. Seems about the only time I really read is on vacation. When I’m home I use what time others read to knit or crochet or update blogs, or read blogs, or comment on blogs, etc.
    Sounds like a good book. Got one here a friend sent me about homelessness. I do plan to find some time to read it
