Preschool Letter O Snack: Cereal O’s Snack Bars
This is a simple homemade snack idea you can use for the letter O week. This was made from cheerios cereal. I used Honey Nut flavor, but any flavor would work.
1/2 c. peanut butter (or other nut butter)
1/2 c. honey (or other liquid sweetener)
3 1/2 c. Cheerios or other O-shaped cereal
2-3 Tbsp chocolate chips (optional)
Mix the honey and peanut butter in a small pot or in a glass bowl for the microwave. Heat and stir until smooth. While it is cooking, pour your cheerios int a large bowl. Pour the heated mixture over the top and mix well. Pour into a square pan lined with wax paper. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Cool and cut to serve.
