Cereal Marshmallow Bars
Serves 10 to 12
I’m all about bright hits of color lately, which explains these cereal marshmallow bars. They’re a simple riff on the classic Rice Krispies treat, but so much more full of brightness and sparkly with some colored sugar. I like to add even more color by using Fruit Loops or Trix cereal. And of course, if you want to get crazy, throw some freeze dried fruit in there for an added layer of flavor. My recommendation? Try adding in freeze-dried strawberries and then swap out the milk in the glaze for some lemon juice. This simple recipe can be tweaked a million times over.
2 tablespoon butter
5 cups (9 ounces) mini marshmallows
6 cups (6.5 ounces) Fruit Loops
For the glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons colored coarse sugar or sprinkles
Spray a 9-by-9-inch pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.
Stir and melt butter and marshmallows in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Stir in Fruit Loops and mix until fully combined. Pour mixture into prepared pan, using your hands press to flatten. Set aside for 1 to 2 hours.
In a separate bowl, combine powdered sugar with milk and stir to combine. Using a spoon, drizzle glaze on top of cereal bars and dust with colored sugar or sprinkles.
Cut into slices and serve.
