Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch Clusters Recipe

How was your weekend?

Long weekends are great, except when Tuesday comes around disguised as a Monday…

And then Tuesday morning you end up doing Monday things…

Like run around like a crazy lady trying to find my kids matching socks…

Or forgetting that it wasn’t, in fact, Monday and trying to do your kid’s school homework that is due on TUESDAY, 2 minutes before the bus comes.

Always a good time.

 

So my least favorite day of the week isn’t Monday…it’s Tuesday disguised as Monday.  An imposter Monday.  Tuesday wearing a Monday mask.

 

BUT one thing about imposter Monday is that it’s ok to eat cereal disguised as a dessert for breakfast.

See how I brought that around?

 

So here we have 2 different kinds of cereal, peanut butter, white chocolate and marshmallows.

Half breakfast food, half dessert…which equals wholly delicious.

 

How to Make These Peanut Butter Treats

Start with your cereals and marshmallows in a bowl.

Then gather your other ingredients…peanut butter being one.

Peanut Butter for the Cap'n Crunch Clusters

Melt some white chocolate or candy coating over a double boiler and then mix in some peanut butter.

Then pour that all over your cereal stuff.

Mix it up evenly…

Then drop by heaping spoonful onto some wax paper.
If you don’t feel like making clusters…OR if you get bored halfway through making the clusters.

I’m not saying that happened to me, but you know…I just heard about it happening one time…you can totally press it into a pan and make squares instead of clusters.

They’re just as good…I promise.

You are pretty much the devil. I mean, what the heck am I supposed to do now that you’ve gone and put one of my favorite cereals ever into something like this? It’s not like I can NOT make it. Thanks, Shelly. Thanks a lot.

I LOVE breakfast in marshmallow peanut butter dessert form! No matter what day it is…but I’m sure it really does taste better on imposter mondays.

This also tastes great if you add 2 cups of dry roasted peanuts before dropping.
