cheerio nuggets

over the holidays i made a batch of this treat for the ladies at sam's daycare. i guess they liked it because there was a request for the recipe. and lest you feel left out, i'll let you in on the secret.

Cheerio Nuggets

6 cups Cheerios 1 cup peanuts

1 cup raisins 1 cup packed brown sugar

½ cup margarine ¼ cup light corn syrup

½ tsp baking soda salt (optional)

1) heat margarine, sugar, syrup, and salt in saucepan until bubbly around edges

2) cook uncovered stirring constantly for 2 minutes

3) remove from heat

4) add baking soda and stir until foamy and light

5) pour over cereal, nuts, and raisins until coated thoroughly

6) spread evenly on buttered cookie sheets

7) bake for 15 minutes at 250ยบ

8) stir and cool

this is a great thing to take and share with a group (because it's a little bit dangerous to have it sitting around the house). i think i might whip up a batch for the superbowl!

Darn! couldn't get to the recipe card, but I think it's almost time to get some more cheerios. :-)
