Today is Saturday. AKA Cleaning Day. Yuck.
My husband was cleaning the cabinet and noticed that we had 4 different kinds of cereal in the boxes, each of which was about 1/4 full. We dumped them into a container...
Husband: How did we get so much cereal?
Me: It was on sale and I mistakenly thought they would eat it.
So I decided that some cereal treats are in order.
Dude, I haven't made these since I was 9. My mother made them in a heart shaped pan for all my teachers at Valentine's day. She put red hots in them. It was 1979, don't judge.
3 tbsp butter, 1 7oz container of marshmallow creme.

I decided to throw in some hazelnut spread with the peanut butter...doesn't that sound good?
I'm pretty sure if you spread the hazelnut spread on a tire, I would eat it.
After the marshmallow creme and butter are melted, stir in 1/4 cup each of peanut butter and hazelnut spread.
Then stir in 6 cups of cereal. I just mixed it in the pan.
You have to keep stirring to coat every piece...
Ugh, this looks good.
If I made this again, I would 1/2 again the recipe...like 1.5 the recipe...Whatever, it needs more gooey. My husband agreed (talking with his mouthful).
