    Thought I'd share this recipie with you that I got ages ago from Parrots magazine.  I call it parrot sweeties altho in my case it should be Fred's sweeties as he is the only one that will eat it.  However the photo in magazine shows a grey tucking in so maybe mine are too fussy. 

    half a cup each of clear honey, sugar,chunky peanut butter,sultanas,chopped nuts.

    2 cups Cheerios.

     

    Bring honey and sugar to boil stirring all the time.  When sugar dissolved remove from heat and add p.butter. Stir until smooth putting back on heat if necessary. Then add Cheerios, nuts and sultanas.  Put in small clumps onto a plate until it has set hard.

    Fred loves these and I change the recipie from time to time depending on what I have in.  Last week I had no chopped nuts so swapped for half cup of seed mix and no sultanas  so swapped for half cup of oats.

    Enjoy.  Sometimes the mixture goes a bit sticky and won't set which is usually if you haven't boiled the sugar properly.
