Chocolate Cheerios Giveaway

Cheerios are such a staple in our house!  I can’t remember when we haven’t had them in our cabinet.  I guess we are creatures of habits :)    My daughter LOVES to have them with honey.

So when I learned there was a new addition to the Cheerios family and it included the word “chocolate”  I was intrigued to say the least.  I was even more excited to see that they were made with real cocoa!    Chocolate Cheerios is low in fat, has only 100 calories per serving, contains at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving (at least 48 grams recommended daily) and is a good source of calcium and vitamin D.

There are even several recipes on their website using Chocolate Cheerios.  One that really caught my eye was the Choolate Cheerios Marshmallow Hearts.

Chocolate Cheerios® Marshmallow Hearts

Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Start to Finish: 1 Hour 45 Minutes

Crust

  • 1 cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Chocolate Cheerios® cereal, crushed
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows

Topping

  • 2/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 bag (11.5 ounces) milk chocolate chips
  • 4 cups Chocolate Cheerios® cereal
  • Candy sprinkles, if desired
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line bottom and sides of 13×9-inch pan with foil. In large bowl, mix all crust ingredients except marshmallows with electric mixer on low speed until crumbly. Press firmly into bottom of pan.
  2. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from oven. Immediately sprinkle with marshmallows. Return to oven; bake an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until marshmallows just begin to puff. Cool while preparing topping.
  3. In large saucepan, place all topping ingredients except cereal and sprinkles. Heat over medium-low heat just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in 4 cups cereal. Immediately spoon warm topping over marshmallows; spread to cover. Sprinkle with candy sprinkles. Cool completely, at least 1 hour.
  4. Using foil to lift, remove mixture from pan; remove foil. With deep 2 1/2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out 18 hearts. Store loosely covered.

We get our day off to a good start by waking up early and taking things nice and SLOW. My kids do much better when they’re not rushed.

We start the morning with Cheerios. Our favorite. We also don’t do a lot of talking in the morning. None of us is an early bird conversationalist. I’ve been eager to try the Chocolate version. I envisioned a bowl as an evening snack. To get my chocolate fix without a lot of calories. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

We usually start off the day with either cold cereal (Cheerios is a family favorite) with fruits and milk or a good hearty stack of pancakes.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Since we homeschool, we start our day off at all different hours, which really appeals to the older ones. No matter what time they wake up, I spend some quality one on one time with each of them to start the day on a positive note. I little breakfast or brunch and school starts.

We start our day off with SnuggleBunny time. This has become a verb in our house as in Mommie, I want to SnuggleBunny now. We get all snuggly close in bed and I just tell her how much I love her and all the good things that everyone should hear to start a good day. :D

We start off with coffee and if we are not running late from being lazy and catching the extra 15 minutes after the alarm we have a homemade burrito or waffle made earlier in the week!

Melissa March 10, 2010 at 11:21 am

Mornings are usually pretty hectic with us running around finding clothes and getting last minute homework done. But I have to say what always makes me smile is that my 2 year old insists on giving everyone at least 2 kisses before they head on their way to school/work

It’s tough to get anyone to smile at our house in the mornings – not one of us is a morning person. But a shower and a little breakfast, kisses from the dogs and we are happy and ready to smile all day long!
