Classic Hot Buttered Cheerios March 18, 2016 by Abby

WHAT?! HOT BUTTERED CHEERIOS?!  I had never heard of these until I Googled “Cheerio Recipes”.  I was looking up Cheerio recipes because my super awesome cousin is sending me a belated birthday gift.  (She better know that she didn’t have to do it.)

Look at it!  Isn’t it the perfect MOM TANK?!  This tank is on pre order right now at NBT Threads.

So being the complete weirdo that I am, I tried to find a cool recipe to honor my tank! LOL!  That makes sense, right?!  ?

Have I mentioned that, at the moment, I raise 2 toddlers in a fifth wheel travel trailer?

I lose my Cheerios… FROM TIME TO TIME.  This is perfect for me.

Anyway Betty Crocker says to “Revisit the ‘80s with three new sweet and savory spins on Hot Buttered Cheerios, a classic throwback snack.”  The link that is connected has three different versions of Hot Buttered Cheerios.  We tried the classic version last night!


Classic Hot Buttered O’s Recipe
Stovetop method: Melt ¼ cup butter in a 10-inch skillet. Stir in 4 cups Cheerios; cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until cereal is well coated. Sprinkle with salt.

We even used our cast iron skillet!  You can see a helping hand in the picture!


THE VERDICT IS OUT: Hot Buttered Cheerios are GOOD!


My little ones really enjoyed this.  It reminded me of popcorn, in a way.  I definitely want to try the Mini Doughnut and Apple Pie Hot Buttered Cheerios!

Hang in there, MOM!  Try not to lose your Cheerios today! :)
