This recipe was a very impromptu creation after receiving a box of peanut butter cheerios from a friend. The cereal was loosing its crispness so I decided to toast it in the oven. This little trick has saved us from throwing out cereal so many times.
After it was toasted I decided to use up some open bags of marshmallows, that were left over from our summer adventures, and make some cereal squares with them.
I followed the basic rice crispy recipe by melting a little bit of butter in a pot along with the marshmallows. When the mixture was nice and gooey I added in the cereal.
Because I wasn't making a large batch I decide to put it into a pie plate.
Once the squares had set I just took the parchment paper out of the dish and cut up the squares like a pie.
The kids loved these little treats!
So next time you have some "going" stale cereal be sure to toast it up and make something yummy from it.
