As well, I enjoy making treats like this will the little ones. As long as you monitor them melting the chocolate, there’s not a lot that can go wrong with this recipe. (Aside from the fact that you may have a chocolate-covered kitchen afterward!😂)

As well, these are also very versatile. You can easily change them by substituting any of these ingredients. If you add peanuts, marshmallows, or pretzels, simply replace one cup of Cheerios with one cup of peanuts (or marshmallows or pretzels). Therefore, you’ll have 1 cup of Cheerios and 1 cup of peanuts. 

  1. Dark chocolate
  2. White chocolate
  3. Peanuts (or any nut)
  4. Marshmallows.
  5. Pretzels

Furthermore, you can add festive sprinkles on top for any holiday or birthday. As well, a sprinkle of salt flakes is always good.
