I felt like a treat and came up with these Cheerio marshmallow treats. If you look at the recipe you are going to think, “Hmmmm, looks like Rice Crispy marshmallow treats to me’. And, you are correct! It’s just it’s cold outside, and I didn’t want to go to the store AGAIN!
It seems like the grocery store is the only place I get to. I dug through my pantry and didn’t have any Rice Crispy cereal and found a stray box of Cheerios. I wanted to try it to see if you can just substitute other cereals for the Rice Crispies. Plus, I didn’t want to go to the store. I’m happy to report, they turned out great and were devoured by the teens and adults in my house. You know, I’m guessing this would work with any cereal. That sure raises some chocolate possibilities in my mind :).
Honestly, this worked out so much better and easier than expected. I forgot how easy it was to whip up a batch of these treats. My mind is kind of going into some sugar laden directions now. I love my Cheerios but I know my kids still love having ‘treat cereals’ as we call them. Hmmmm, wouldn’t Chocolate Coco Puffs hit that chocolate craving? I bet it would, especially if you drizzled chocolate on it. Hmmmm, wouldn’t Lucky Charms be fun and interesting? Maybe a white chocolate drizzle?? Oh my, I think I know some marshmallow cereal treats that I might try making soon. Has anyone already tried these or others? How did they turn out? Are you just cringing at the thought of all that sugar 🙂 ? Oh well. A treat is fine, once in a while!Google+
