My kids have been asking for rice krispie treats and I keep forgetting to grab a box when I’m grocery shopping. My family is not big cereal eaters so it’s something I don’t always have on hand. I did recently pick up a big box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch at Costco and wondered if that could be used as a substitute cereal.
The answer is YES!!! Oh these bars are so good. The cinnamon in the cereal mixes so well with the gooey marshmallow. I’m trying to not devour the entire pan.
5 Tbsp unsalted butter
8 oz bag mini marshmallow
9 cups Cinnnamon Toast Crunch cereals
Lightly spray a 9×11 pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. In a large pot, melt the butter over low heat. Add in the marshmallows. Stir until they are melted and smooth.
Remove the pan from the heat and pour in the cereal. Lightly fold in the cereal until combined. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and press down to an even layer.
Allow to completely cool before cutting into bars.
