Crispy Cranberry Whole Grain Marshmallow Bars (alternative to Rice Crispy Treats)
  • Cooking Time: 5 min
  • Preparation Time: 15 min
  • 3 Tbs of butter (3 1/2 if you like butter!)
  • 10.5 oz (1 bag) miniature marshmallows
  • 1 box of multi-grain cluster cereal
  • 3/4 c dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp-1 Tbs of Cocoa powder (depends on how chocolately you want it, and I like Hershey's Special Dark)
  1. 1. Chop (as finely as you desire) the cranberries. And prep a 13x9 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. 2. Melt butter in a large sauce pan (low heat). Add marshmallows and cocoa powder to butter and stir until smooth.
  3. 3. Add cranberries and cereal to a large bowl. Pour/scrape marshmallow mixture into the bowl and mix together.
  4. 4. Pour/scrape mixture into the baking dish. Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes, and cut into bars if desired.
Discovered this idea from an old magazine while cutting out pictures of food for a 4K art project. I liked the idea, but it needed something else.
