After School Snackin'

Cheerio Bars

My mom use to make these for us when we were kids...walking in the door... after school....and smelling these?   Heaven!

*As a child, I remember hardly ever receiving Hostess cakes...only the homemade stuff was served...and I thought that was terrible.  Now, I crave Mom's cooking and baking! 

1 stick of butter
Yellow cake mix
3 cups Cheerios
3 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup chocolate chip morsels
1 can Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Set the dry mix aside .  Melt butter in pan.  Spread  cake mix over butter.  Next, spread the marshmallow/cheerio/chip mix over that.  Drizzle sweetened condensed milk over the top.

Bake for 25 min's or until golden brown.  Cut into bars after it has cooled.

Warning:  Very addicting!

Bon Appetit!
