Cheerio Treats

Lately I've had nothing but an enormous sweet tooth! So one night while browsing on Pinterest (yet again) I came across this amazing looking treat! Kind of like no bake cookies but less ingredients and with cheerios instead! LOL Basically just the no baking part. Which doesn't bother me a bit! LOL So without further ado here is the Treats!

What you will need:

1 cup corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter (creamy)
1 tsp. vanilla
5 cups cheerios

How do you make it?

In a large sauce pan, combine sugar and corn syrup. Bring to boil over medium heat.

Allow mixture to boil for one minute and remove from heat.

Add peanut butter and vanilla to mixture and mix until smooth.

Add Cheerios and mix until all coated.

Drop mixture by spoonful onto waxed paper and allow to cool.

Makes approximately 2 dozen.

Then let sit to harden or you can dig right in!

Hope you all enjoy this amazing treat!

Apple Oatmeal over night crockpot recipe!

I'm now in love with oatmeal again! I found this recipe on Pinterest. I'm always on this sight! I'm IN LOVE with this sight! I found this very simple, very east crock pot oatmeal. And I just happened to have all the ingredients on hand! So last night while I was up waiting on my homemade laundry soap to finsih setting up, I decided to whip this into the crock and dream about it while I was sleeping!

The one thing to remember in this recipe is to DO NOT STIR any of the ingriedents together!

Here's what you will need:
2 apples sliced ( I chopped mine up into cube likes pieces)
1/3 Cup brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups oatmeal
4 cups water

Cook overnight, approx 8-9 hours.
First you are going to slice up your apples and put them on the bottom of the crock, next add the brown sugar and cinnamon.
Add your two cups of oatmeal on top
Then add your 4 cups of water.
Pop on the lid, set it to low and forget about it til morning!
Personally, when I first tried it I thought it to be a little TO bland for my taste. So I added a bit of sugar to my bowl and OMG YUMMINESS!
