What is something I can make to bind the cereal together? Maybe like an icing made from confectioners sugar so it's thin? I don't have marshmallows, and am not going to the store at 1:30am to get some :lol: But I have a sweet tooth... so I'm wanting something like:

And if I do use that icing, should I omit the peanut butter? Or is that a binding agent, too? :lol:

I made something like that without the chocolate chips
I used peanutbutter and corn syrup and melted it in a pan,then mixed in Cheerios and it tasted like a peanutbutter cereal bar

I'm not sure if icing would work. Will it stick together with just the pesnut butter. Our try some syrup or honey to replace the marshmallows

I don't have corn syrup :( lol. I saw a recipe using that, too. I'm just worried about it being too sweet with the confectioners sugar. Because I'm also using frosted cheerios, and then the peanut butter and chocolate chips.

I don't have honey. I mean I have like... pancake syrup lol but that doesn't sound good at all. IDK. I think if I thinned it out enough with milk, it'd work. Maybe. Lol

So you have Cheerios, peanut butter and chocolate chips. Do you have butter? I'm gonna look to see if I can find a recipe minus the marshmallow.

Heat up some peanutbutter
It will thin out a little once it's warm

Imo the icing sounds really sweet. When I was a kid we mixed peanut butter with powdered sugar & rolled then into balls. If you mix them together out might be enough bond to hold the cereal together

That's what the recipe has in it, too. It's marshmallows and peanut butter. I think the PB makes it like.... thick, but the marshmallow is what it all stick together. I think. IDK. I'm about to give up and just do this tomorrow :lol:
