Make This!!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirls
For some reason, Blogger won't let me place the photo horizontally. Sorry!

People either love or hate this cookie. WE LOVE THEM!

 My mom found this recipe on the back of a Cheerios cereal box way back when. I remember we made them for a church potluck one time. I stood in front of the platter and ate about ten of them. This girl named Rhonda came up and asked what they were. I told her how good they were & she popped one in her mouth. She immediately started gagging and spit it out. I was horrified! She wasted a perfectly good cookie! This is why I say people either love or hate this cookie. So far, Rhonda is the only one I know who dislikes this cookie. Make these & decide for yourself!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirls

1 cup peanut butter
1/2 c powdered sugar
1/2 c light corn syrup
2 cups plain Cheerios
1/2 package chocolate chips
2 T water

Mix peanut butter, powdered sugar, & corn syrup in medium bowl. Stir in Cheerios. Shape mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls, flatten slightly. Heat chocolate chips in water in saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until melted. Dip tops of cookies into chocolate. Place on waxed papered cookie sheet & chill until firm. Keep in air tight container in fridge.
