Super Easy Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cereal Bars

I’ve kind of dropped the ball on a fun Halloween events and goodies this year. So I didn’t want to let my kiddos down for Halloween morning.

If you’re like me, I love everything pumpkin spice, then you probably bought the pumpkin spice Cheerios. They were sittingunopened in my cabinet, as I was urging the kids to eat other cereal that was opened first. I wanted to make something fun for them on Halloween morning, but was kind of at a loss.

I had a hankering for chocolate, as I do pretty much all moments in which I am breathing, so decided to combine my love for pumpkin and chocolate together.

Actually, I combined my love for nutella and chocolate.

The concoction was easy and fast to make, and my kids were delightfully excited to try this out with some fruit and yogurt for breakfast. It took less than five minutes for me to put it all together and set it in the freezer for 20 minutes to get hard. And voila! The easiest breakfast I’ve made in a long time.

Ingredients:

4 cups of pumpkin spice Cheerios

1/4 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup Nutella

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup honey

Directions:

1.) In a large saucepan combine all the ingredients except for Cheerios and mix well on low heat until thoroughly blended.

2.) Add Cheerios and coat thoroughly with mixture.

3.) In a wax or parchment lined 9 x 13 baking dish, press Cheerio mixture in firmly.

4.) Set in freezer for 20 to 30 minutes.

5.) Enjoy!

It’s just that easy! If you have leftovers, I’d store them in the freezer so they don’t get soft (we didn’t have any leftovers).

Happy Halloween!!
