Candied Cereal

Such a day! A little ambition kicked in and I made an old time goodie. Mom always made this for us and I love it still when Mr. Sweet Tooth appears.

Boil together for 5 minutes stirring constantly
1 C granulated sugar
1/2 C water
1 cider vinegar
    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 just the right amount. 
I also added 1/4 C of uncooked oatmeal.
*Can add peanuts if desired.


  1. This looks YUMMEEE! Oh my goodness. I am fasting today since I went overboard this weekend...should not have entered here. :)

  2. Mmmmm! I'll have mine made of Cheerios. It's my favorite cereal. I suppose walnuts would go well also.

  3. That looks absolutely delicious. Since I love cereal and I have a fierce sweet tooth, this recipe looks like it's right up my alley. Thanks for sharing... :)
