  • 4 cups Chocolate Cheerios™ cereal
  • 1 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup creamy cookie butter or cookie spread
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips (if you use a different flavor cereal you might put in chips to compliment that taste)


  • Line bottom and sides of 8-inch square pan with foil or parchment paper. Spray foil with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix cereal and oats; set aside.

  • In large microwavable bowl, microwave cookie butter, honey and brown sugar uncovered on High 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until mixture is boiling and slightly thickened.

  • Pour over cereal mixture in bowl; stir until evenly coated. Gently stir in chocolate chips. Using buttered back of spoon, press mixture very firmly in pan. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm enough to cut.

  • For bars, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store covered at room temperature up to 1 week.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens
  • Cookie butter is very much akin to peanut butter–similar consistency and color. The rich gingerbread flavor actually comes from the so-called “Speculoos cookie,” a crunchy Belgian cookie that has a hint of caramel.
