Homemade Honey Smackers

This is the recipe my husband has become famous for making in our family. The kids are always so excited to get up in the morning when they know dad’s made honey smackers the night before :).

There are only 5 ingredients in this recipe which makes things easy: puffed wheat, honey, butter, cinnamon and molasses.

Start off by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Dump your bag of wheat puffs in a roaster pan (the one you would cook your turkey in for thanksgiving) and allow it to toast in the oven for a few minutes while you combine the remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan and stir them together over medium heat.

Pull your puffed wheat cereal out of the oven.  Remove the saucepan from the heat and drizzle the mixture over your puffed wheat cereal and then stir to coat evenly.

Cook your cereal for about 12 minutes in your preheated oven, taking it out every 4 minutes and giving it a stir. Be sure you scrape those edges. When the liquid is mostly absorbed, it’s done.

Allow the cereal to cool before serving. It will get crispy as it cools.
