I love Reese's(R) peanut butter chips and peanut butter in general. I wanted to create a fun recipe that combines my lust for sweets with my practical need to eat healthy food. This recipe is great for kids who are picky eaters, or brunch hosts who want to add whimsy to the orange juice mimosas and sausage.

Simple idea that tasted good. It wasn't very sweet even with the extra peanut butter chips I sprinkled on top but it was sweet enough. I went ahead and stirred the chips in while it was still in the pan. (It might be fun for kids to stir them into their own bowls.) I thought 3 minutes was too long to let the cereal sit before stirring them in. At 2 minutes I put them in--the cereal was already starting to set too much and I didn't want it to get too lumpy for my picture. Next time I will stir in right away. Thanks for the idea. I hadn't had farina in a while and I think I'll try this with some cinnamon chips I have.

I was so looking forward to eating this and I was terribly disappointed. It was very easy to make but the flavors just did not go together for me. On the other hand I do believe White Chocolate would be a better fit for me. I will try again with that.
