This is a treat my mom made for my brother and I when we were growing up. We always had this on road trips in our motor home. They are originally called Cheerio Nuggets but Emry and Ayden have renamed them Honey Nuggets.
1c. brown sugar
1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. corn syrup
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
6 c. cheerios
1 c. peanuts
Heat oven to 250 degrees and grease 2 13x9 pans.
In a large bowl combine cheerios and peanuts.
