Simply Made Sunday-- Cheerio Crunch

This is a yummy, cruchy treat to use up the Cheerios which Grandma gave us that she keeps buying by mistake. (She needs to remember that Grandpa like Honey Nut Cheerios)
Ingredients needed:
8 Cups of Cheerios
2/3 cup of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
1 cup of M&M's candy

Pour 8 cups of Cheerios into a large bowl
Put 2/3 of a cup of butter into a sauce pan.
Add 1 cup of brown sugar to the saucepan
Cook the butter and brown sugar over medium heat
stirring constantly until the mixture comes to a boil.
This get very hot--Luke only helped at the very beginning.
Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 tsp. baking soda and 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Pour the sugar mixture into the Cheerios.
WARNING: it is VERY hot

After mixing the sugar and Cheerios together, place on a large cookie sheet and bake a 250 degrees for about 10 minutes.
Remove carefully from oven and return to the big bowl.
Shake the bowl as the Cheerios cool so they don't stick together.
Add one cup of M&M's
Another yummy, yummy treat!
A family favorite!
