Three ingredients, no oven required, and easy on the waist line-what could be better? Not much.  Most of  us are used to traditional cereal treats made with plain jane rice crispies. However, you can use any cereal you’re into to make this favorite snack. What a great way to get rid of that old box of cereal sitting your pantry about to expire!  I made mine two ways.  First, with my favorite cereal – cinnamon toast crunch and second, with cocoa flavored rice crispy treats, putting a spin on an old favorite.

Ingredients

(1) Bag or 10 oz. Marshmallows
(6 c.) Cereal
(3) tbsp. Butter (You can use I can’t believe it’s not butter! to make it more low fat)

Directions

(1) Melt the butter in a large pot on medium high heat.

(2) Next add the marshmallows and cereal.  Stir until the marshmallows have fully melted and all the ingredients are fully incorporated.

(3) Line a cake pan with parchment paper and spray with non stick spray.

(4) Using a nonstick spatula, press  the mixture down into the pan and let cool for 15-20 minutes or until fully hardened, cut into 12 even squares and enjoy!

I wrapped mine up individually in plastic wrap and took them to the movies  as a snack for everyone to enjoy 😉
