Cooking Tips

  • Microwaving the peanut butter and honey allows it to liquify, which makes it easier to mix together
  • As the mixture is initially very sticky, you’ll want to use both parchment paper and nonstick spray on the pan
  • Use the back of a spoon or spatula to smooth out the Cheerios mixture once it’s in the pan
