Multigrain Marshmallow Treats

marsh5

Trying to get more creative in the kitchen with treats. Saw a site that used multi grain cheerios in a marshmallow treat instead of traditional rice crispy treats. I thought, I have multi grain cheerios, it’s what my baby munches on as a snack every day! Growing up, my mom rarely made rice crispy treats, but when she did, they went fast! Instead she made olive oil cookies! They are really good, and I will post them one day soon.

Back to my recipe…For the multi grain marshmallow treats I am making today I did add less butter, just four tablespoons, which made them crispier and crunchier then usual, but still very good. The original recipe calls for one stick of butter. If you like them a little bit more moist, add a full stick. I am definitely going to try this with other types of cereals, and next time add some nuts and cranberries to the recipe. It’s easy enough where you can add different ingredients and have a really tasty quick snack for breakfast, or anytime of the day really. Kids love ’em too! That’s a plus ;o)


Ingredients

24 ounces multigrain cheerios

4 tablespoons butter

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 package large marshmallows

Makes 12 or more depending how big you cut them

Directions

In a large pot add your butter, allow to melt. Next add your vanilla and marshmallows. Melt your marshmallows until they get soft and plump. Don’t melt them all the way. I left mine a little big so that my cereal treats would have big chinks of marshmallow. Add your cereal to marshmallows and turn off heat. Stir until well combined. Next butter a 9 x 9 baking dish. Pour cereal treats into pan and flatten until even on all sides. Let cool, slice up and enjoy!

You can also cut them all up, and individually wrap them up in wax paper, then store them in Tupperware.

  1. This is such a great idea, I’m imagining the crunch from the multigrain cereal must be so great! And those big pockets of marshmallow look so tempting! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
