Peanut Butterscotch Cheerio Clusters

Honey Nut Cheerios- Imma Bee-Butterscotch Clusters

My friend, Taylor, and I are relatively obsessed with the song Imma Bee. It is just so bad it's good. These treats are Honey Nut Cheerio Inspired, and a sweet childhood memory. Make them IMMEDIATELY. They are my favorite dessert shown here. They're butterscotch, peanut butter, deliciousness. I made mine into balls so they could be served in cupcake cups but, really truly, they are so much better just pressed into a 13 by 19, like rice krispie treats. They stay chewier that way, promise it's worth the lack of adorable. You should probably still make the bees though.

Imma Bee-Butterschotch Bars
Mix in a bowl:
-6 c. Cheerios
-11 oz. pkg. butterscotch chips
-1/4 tsp. salt

Bring to a boil:

-2 c. peanut butter

Add syrup and sugar to first mix. Stir well until mixed. Put into a buttered 9x13 inch cake pan.

Scientists believe that the advent of cooking played an important role in human evolution and civilization. The Development of agriculture, commerce and transportation in different regions around the world had offered cooks many new ingredients which have made them creative, with style in cooking, and optimized abilities.
