No Bake 3x3 Bandwagon Cookies

No Bake Bandwagon Cookies
OK, so I made up the name for this snack while I was typing the title.  I've seen a lot of Pins on Pinterest for this snack that I remember making in my first grade class (which was about 37 years ago).  I looked at the basic proportions from other recipes and then went from there.  I used the name "Bandwagon" because I was going to start out this entry by saying "I'm jumping on the bandwagon", but then I just decided to use that in the name of the post (yes, I live an exciting life).  And, there are 3 ingredients and 3 steps to make these (well, maybe four steps.)

The main recipe I saw called for 3 cups of Corn Flakes.  I didn't have any on hand.  I saw in a comment that someone else used Special K.  I didn't have that either.  What I did have is a Cereal Tupperware with a mix of 3 or 4 Cereals (something my boyfriend concocted).  I know the reference to "boyfriend" makes me sound 15, but I'm divorced and dating someone, so hence, my boyfriend.  LOL.  You really can use any combination here.  White chocolate chips.  Butterscotch chips.  Peanut Butter.  That new Biscoff Spread that I have in my pantry, but haven't yet tried.  I think this is one of those things that as long as you like all the components, the finished product will be good.

I will definitely try different iterations of this.  Maybe color some white chocolate so it looks springlike!

Here's what I used for this three-ingredient, three step snack...

Chocolate Chips

Peanut Butter

  • 1 1/2 cups of Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 cup of Peanut Butter
  • 3 Cups of Cereal
Here's what you do...

  1. Melt the chocolate
  2. Stir in the peanut butter
  3. Pour chocolate-peanut butter mixture over the cereal and stir
  4. Place by the tablespoon onto a parchment lined sheet/plate and put into the fridge until set
NOTE:  After I put half of the mixture onto the pan to set, I stirred the rest of the mixture some more and really crushed up the cereal.  Both were good, but I think I liked the texture of the crushed up finished product better.
Mmm...melted chocolate and peanut butter

Did you hear the one where the cereal says "Lets get our coat on?
Let's go in the Fridge!

OK, that was four steps.  You'll forgive me, right?
