Cheerio!

I made candied cereal this morning - just in time to share with the dependable man who faithfully picks up a bag of trash here every Tuesday. He is often the recipient of a "goody bag" when we see him coming. This time I included the recipe for his wife.

There is a mouse in our house or maybe two very large ones who have almost completely nibbled the once upon a time full tray of delicious treats empty! You should see it now since I took the pictures!

Here is the recipe - it came from my mother. Dig out a heavy pot.

Candied Cereal                       

•Boil together for 5 minutes stirring constantly

1 C Granulated sugar
1/2 C water
1 tsp. Vinegar (apple cider)

Then add:

2 T. Molasses
1 T. Butter
1/2 tsp. salt

•Boil (stirring constantly) until a few drops in cold water becomes hard & brittle.

Stir in 1/2 box Puffed Rice that has been pre-crisped in oven.

Spread on buttered pan to cool.

(Can use Kix or Cheerios-no need to pre-crisp them.)

3C Cheerios is just the right amount. 

Can add peanuts if desired.
