How to Make Winnie the Pooh's Honey Snacks

National Winnie the Pooh Day falls on January 18th of each year.  Although it's not an official holiday, it's a special day of recognition.  January 18th is A.A. Milne's birthday... the author creator of Winnie the Pooh!  On this day, many schools host special reading days in which students and staff wear Winnie the Pooh hats and shirts, read Winnie the Pooh books, watch Winnie the Pooh videos, and have tasty Winnie the Pooh themed snacks.  Fun times!  Keep reading for a simple, sugary sweet recipe that you and your students can make for Winnie the Pooh Day.

Before you begin whipping up this recipe, you need to be warned.  These Winnie the Pooh Honey Snacks are sooooo sweet and sooooo good... but if you or any of your students have issues with blood sugar such as diabetes... this would NOT be a good recipe for you to use.  The ingredients in this recipe will spike a person's blood sugar quickly.  Also, this recipe contains peanuts and peanut butter.  If you or any of your students have peanut allergies or allergies to other nuts, substitute ingredients as needed.  Adult supervision is recommended since some stove top cooking is needed.

Ingredients

1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups Cheerios cereal
1/2 cup peanuts (optional)

Directions

  • Butter a 9-inch square pan.
  • In a 3-quart saucepan, heat the honey and the sugar to a slight simmer.  Stir occasionally until the mixture is smooth.
  • Remove from heat.  Stir in peanut butter, Cheerios, and peanuts until everything is evenly coated.
  • Pour the mixture into the square pan and spread it evenly.
  • Let it cool for an hour before serving.
