How to Make Honey Nut Cheerio Balls
Prepare a large cookie sheet with non-stick spray or a non-stick silicone baking mat and set aside.
Place marshmallows, peanut butter and honey in a saucepan. Heat this mixture on medium-high, stirring constantly.
When the marshmallows completely melt, remove from heat and stir in the Cheerios.
TIP: If the pan is too small for everything together, place mixture in a large mixing bowl and add Cheerios.
Stir until Cheerios are completely coated.
Portion out mixture and roll into balls. Place on on your prepared sheet, then move the cookie sheet to the fridge. Allow Cheerio balls to chill for at least an hour before serving.
