Honey Nut Cheerio Treats

Usually I buy the store brand of most foods–including cereal. And usually Logan is just fine with that (currently he’s working through a box of Target brand Frosted Mini Wheats). But apparently, Honey Nut Cheerios cannot be substituted. Which explains why there’s been a box and a half sitting in the cabinet for a few weeks.

So this morning, I decided to fix that. Because who says Rice Krispies is the only cereal we should mix with marshmallows?

What you’ll need:
*3 Tbsp butter
*1 bag big marshmallows or 4  cups mini marshmallows
*6 cups cereal of your choice (I obviously used Honey Nut Cheerios)

 The recipe goes exactly like if  you were making Rice Krispies treats.

1. Melt the butter in a large non-stick pan.

2. Mix in the marshmallows and stir like crazy until melted.

3. Mix in the cereal.

4. Spread into a 9×13″ pan using waxed paper or a greased spatula. I also lined by pan with foil to make clean up a little easier.

Optional:  Let cool and cut into 2″ squares. Or just eat them right then out of the pan!

My mistake this morning:  I decided to do 1 1/2 batches at once. Not smart. You have to work so fast to get the cereal mixed in and the whole thing spread into the pan. I wasn’t nearly fast enough… maybe because I kept sampling though…
