What's up Wednesday--cheerios treat

 This little treat has been a family favorite since 2004 when Miss O had them as a preschool treat.  My dear friend Angie made them, and Miss O loved them!  I got the recipe and the rest is history.  They are usually requested by Mr J when he is in charge of treats for our weekly family night.  They are super easy to make and extra yummy.  Kind of like a rice krispie treat but with peanut butter and cheerios instead.  Okay, not really like a rice krispie treat at all, but really good just the same!!!

Cheerios Treats

1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups peanut butter, you can use either creamy or crunchy
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup light corn syrup
3/4 tsp vanilla
4 cups Cheerios

Heat sugar and syrup in pan until sugar dissolves.  Remove from heat; blend in peanut butter.  Add vanilla and salt.  Fold in cereal.  Grease a 9x13 pan and press into pan.  Cool and cut into bars, or just start eating it as soon as you put it into the pan like we do so half the pan is eaten before it is cooled and cut into bars :)
