Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirls


My mom found this recipe on the side of a Cheerios box back in the 1970s. These cookies were an instant hit and my sisters and I have been making them ever since for our own families. Make a batch and watch them disappear!!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirls

Recipe yield: 3 dozen cookies

2 cups creamy peanut butter

1 cup powdered sugar

1 cup light corn syrup

4 cups Cheerios cereal (use plain Cheerios. Any other flavor will be too sweet).

1/2 cup coconut (optional)

1/3 cup melted chocolate chips

Mix peanut butter, powdered sugar and corn syrup in a large bowl. Stir in Cheerios & coconut (if using). Shape mixture into one inch balls, flatten slightly. Drizzle with melted chocolate chips. Keep cookies in refrigerator.
