Cereal Treats

21 Aug

We’re all too familiar with the rice crispy treat, a mixture of rice crispies, marshmallow and whatever else they add in to create a very sweet, sticky moreish delight enjoyed the world over. However, my mind was blown a few years ago when I realised you could do the same thing with any other cereal and from that point I’ve always wanted to try coming up with some concoctions of my own. Well I’ve finally done it!

This is a cool idea for a party or picnic snack. You can make them ahead of time, they’re fun and even though most people have had rice crispie treats, other cereal treats may be a novelty.

WHAT YOU NEED

1) Cereal(s) of your chosing– I opted for a fruity cereal, chocolate puffs and Lucky Charms.

2) Marshmallow– I picked the smaller ones because I thought they would melt faster but in fact I have no proof that’s the case. You can also opt for flavoured marshmallow.

3) Toppings– I chose sprinkles,  icing and cocoa powder.

WHAT TO DO

1) Melt marshmallow in microwave- Try short bursts of 10 seconds or so, stirring each time until it’s soft.

2) Add cereal and melted marshmallow (along with any flavorings e.g. cocoa powder) to bowl and mix.

3) Spread mixture into flat surface or mould (I used baking pans)

4) Let mixtures cool and harden in refrigerator.

5) Once hardened let soften a bit (allow to sit out) and remove.

And that’s it! Enjoy!
