Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cheerio Cups

Saturday, 20 April 2019

I am sharing a delicious and simple no-bake Easter treat with you today that your family and children are just going to love. Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cheerio Cups!  

Chocolatey,  peanutbuttery, and crunchy. Not overly sweet, but still a delight.  For Easter I have decorated the tops with candy covered chocolate mini Easter Eggs.
Every month I am the lucky recipient of a Degustabox.  Once a month, around the middle of the month, I am sent one of these lovely boxes which contain a delicious assortment of all things foodie.  

I just love these boxes. Opening each one is tiny a bit like opening a Christmas gift. Always a surprise, and always filled with things that pique my interest and desire to try. Degustabox is a monthly foodie subscription service that sends out a range of 10 to 15 specially selected foodie products.  

There's always a great mix of new products that I haven't tried before, as well as plenty of treats from more established brands. Quite often you will have the opportunity to try  new products before they arrive in the shops, so it can be a bit of a sneak peak! 

Each Degustabox costs only £12.99, delivery costs are included in the price, and there is no fixed contract involved. You can cancel at any time. I love getting these boxes! In my opinion, they are great value for money spent.  

This month I can even offer you a discount. (more about that below)  This month's (April) box was the Best of British Box!  

And now a bit of what was included in the box.

Bon appetit! 


  1. They sound a little like a marriage between two Australian classic children's party treats - Chocolate Crackles and Honey Joys (though crackles are made with Rice Krispies and the other with Cornflakes). They actually sell Cheerios here, so I might have a go at these for the grandchildren tomorrow - they look so festive!

    1. They are sure to love them Marie! And they are very easy to make! If you have a silicone muffin pan, you don't even need to grease or put in paper strips because you can just pop them out. Happy Easter! xoxo

  2. What a great box, that would be exciting to receive a box of new goodies each month! Love what you did with Cheerios, yummy,
    Have a wonderful Easter !

    1. I quite enjoy them Laurie! Happy Easter to you and Gary! xoxo

  3. Happy Easter ..Cheerios and you a perfect match!
