Ingredient List

  • Small check mark in a circle icon 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • Small check mark in a circle icon 2 tablespoons water
  • Small check mark in a circle icon 1 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
  • Small check mark in a circle icon 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • Small check mark in a circle icon 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • Small check mark in a circle icon 2 cups Cheerios cereal


  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment or waxed paper. In 1-quart saucepan, mix chocolate chips and water. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth. Cool the chocolate while preparing the candies.
  2. In medium bowl, mix peanut butter, powdered sugar and corn syrup until well blended. Stir in the cereal until evenly coated.
  3. Lightly spray your hands with cooking spray. For each candy, roll 1 tablespoon of the mixture into a 1 1/2-inch ball. Place the balls on the cookie sheet and press them slightly so the bottoms of the balls are flat (this stops them from rolling off the cookie sheet).
  4. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of the cooled chocolate onto each ball. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. Store the candies in a covered container in the refrigerator.


  • Sticky Fingers? To keep the candy mixture from sticking to your spoon when you spoon it out to make a ball, spray your spoon with cooking spray.
  • Cooking Gluten Free? Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
