The specially marked boxes of sendCheer Cheerios should be in Walmart stores starting in November. In case you missed my last post, Cheerios has specially marked boxes in Walmart stores that have a sendCheer card that you can cut out and mail. The boxes are pre-addresssed through the USO to a military family. This makes it easier for people who don’t know a military family. No need to find an address or family.

This is a fantastic way to let someone in the military know that we are thinking of them. It only takes a moment to cut out and jot a quick note on the back. Then just add a stamp and pop it in the mailbox. This effort means a lot to me because my father served twenty two years in the navy and patriotism has always been a big part of our family.

If you have little children, let them decorate the card with markers or stickers and have them write a note so they can be part of this too.

The kids have friends of the family whose father is currently serving in the military so I thought it would be nice to make up a batch of Cheerios treats to take over to their house just to let them know that we’re thinking of them. Here’s the recipe we used:

Cheerios No Bake Treats

1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups Cheerios toasted oat cereal

Heat the corn syrup in a large saucepan until boiling and remove from heat.  Stir in vanilla and chocolate chips until melted. 

Add Cheerios and stir until well coated.

Press mixture into a buttered 8 inch square pan. Cool completely and slice into 2 inch squares.

This is super easy to make and it’s delicious too! Don’t forget to keep your eyes open for specially marked sendCheer Cheerios boxes.
