And I got thinking, wouldn’t these (and other cereal brands) make the cutest treat on a STICK? I am totally looking forward to making some Froot Loop pops for Back-To-School this summer!!
Ok, back to the recipe.
The main difference in my cereal treats is white chocolate. Sometimes I will substitute the white chocolate for peanut butter chips or just plain peanut butter, but a little white chocolate is a MUST!
I usually can’t keep hands off of these bad boys!
1 bag Mini Marshmallows
1/2 bag White Chocolate chips (or Peanut Butter (Reese’s) chips)….(or sometimes both!)
6 cups Rice Cereal (or any cereal)
2 TBS butter
I skip the daunting task of watching marshmallows melt on Low in a saucepan…who has time for that? So…
~I put the marsmallows & butter in the microwave for 1 minute.
~Add chips and stir for about 30 seconds
~Microwave another 30 seconds
~Stir until all the chips have melted
~If you still need a little more melting just do 20 seconds at a time
~Add the marshmallows to your ALREADY POURED bowl of cereal treats and stir until they are completely blended and the marshmallow covers all the cereal. Then pour into a sprayed dish ( I like 9×13) and press flat. If you have a hard time with cereal sticking to your spoon, I like to spray the spoon with a little cooking spray and this helps. I put mine in the fridge for about 30 minutes and then I cut them.
And there you have it!! I think these make such a fun summer treat and later this summer I will share some fun Cereal Pops with you!
