It is saturday morning… you shuffle out of bed and into the kitchen to make a bow of cereal. You get out a bowl, a spoon, your favorite box of cereal and milk. You open the box and unroll the plastic liner. You pour a bowl and small handful of cereal pours out, followed by a bunch of powder…. Bummer!! This scenario has happened to me way too often. What am I supposed to do with three bites of cereal?!? The result is a very upsetting Saturday morning.
I saw a blog post months ago that had a wonderful idea (sorry I can’t remember, or find, the blog I saw). All you need to do is collect leftover cereals for a few weeks or months, depending on your families consumption. Once you have a 4-6 cups make these wonderful cereal bars.
What you need:
- 3 teaspoons butter
- 10 oz marshmallows, one bag
- 6 cups cereal
First melt butter and mallows in a large pot over med-low heat. I even used left over marshmallows and mixed large and small mallows. Once melted add cereal, powder and all. Mix gently until mallow mixture evenly coats the cereal.
Spray a baking dish with a light coat of cooking spray. Pour cereal mixture into prepared pan and let sit for 30 minutes or until cool.
These crispies are a great way to use up ingredients in the kitchen. I imagine each time they are made they will taste different. I hope you enjoy your creation.
