This recipe was first introduced to us by our daughter/sister in law Shana. She brings this treat to all of our family gatherings. It didn't take long for the whole family to be hooked!
Once you take one bite of it, you won't be able to put it down. It is perfect to bring to all your family gatherings. Or it would make a perfect neighbor gift around the holidays! Put it in some cellophane and add a cute ribbon. And just like that, all of your neighbors will be calling you the best cook in town!
Everyone who tries this asks us for the recipe. The flavors work perfectly together! It is so satisfying and delicious.
Possibly the best things about our Coconutty Cereal Treats is how easy they are. Just one batch makes 16 servings and is ready to go in a matter of minutes.
The one thing people sometimes do wrong is boil the butter, corn syrup, and sugar for too long. I try and keep it boiling for only 2-4 minutes. If you go 5 plus minutes, the mixture will harden like a rock when adding it to the cereal. Don't overthink it, just make sure and not leave it on for long.
This treat isn't just a dessert. We have found it makes the perfect after school snack too! My kids will gobble it right up. It is a fun way to mix things up.
Enjoy making this for your family!
