    I was making these 40 yrs ago. I called them fried cheerios, the browner thebetter!

    Honeynut Cheerios, just add melted butter and bake. Yummy sweet addition, or just by themselves.

    Omg!! I finally found it. I knew I wasn’t crazy!! I was born in ’77 and distinctly remember my mom baking honey nut cheerios in the oven with butter. It was one of the best things ever. She doesn’t even remember so I can’t wait to show her. Clearly I’ll be making this stat.
