Ingredients
  

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter sliced/cubed for easer melting
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups Honey Nut Cheerios
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup butterscotch chips plus about 2 tbsp aside for drizzling

  • Prepare a 8-inch square pan with aluminum foil, letting the edges overhang slightly. Spray evenly with cooking spray.
  • In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine butter, honey, brown sugar, and heat on high power for 3-4 minutes, stopping every minute to stir mixture. Use caution when stirring as the mixture begins to caramelize and get bubbly as it may cause burns.
  • Remove from microwave and add vanilla. Mixture will bubble up.
  • Stir in the Honey Nut Cheerios, coating evenly.
  • Stir in the butterscotch morsels and shredded coconut, the morsels may get melty and that’s okay.
