Quick Treat: Cereal Bar

8 Oct

Cereal bars are great when you’re on the go or need a quick bite to eat.  You can use any kind of cereal-Cheerios, Rice Krispy Treats, Fruity Pebbles, Corn Pops, and others.   It’s so easy to use make cause you don’t need an oven! It takes less than 5 minutes to make too!

Another hint is that marshmallows harden easily so you must combine the cereal and marshmallows quickly. I used Cocoa Rice Krispy and Fruity Pebbles, and I sold them for a bake sale. Then, the leftovers (ones not sold) went to my floor-mates at my dorm.

Watch this video on how to make these  yummy, easy to bake cereal bars.

Yields 8-12 bars depending on pan


  • 1 cup mini or regular sized marshmallows
  • 1 1/2 cup choice of cereal
  • 1  tsp of butter/margarine


  1. Use a microwavable bowl that’s deep and melt butter for 10-15 seconds in microwave. Note: Marshmallows will rise hence the deep bowl!
  2. Spread melted butter around bowl so marshmallows won’t stick.  Pour marshmallows into bowl and heat for 1 minute
  3. Stir melted marshmallows with fork or spoon.  Then quickly pour in cereal before the marshmallows harden!
  4. Mix cereal and melted marshmallow thoroughly. If needed, pour more cereal in.
  5. Place mixture into a square pan, mold and shape mixture with a sturdy spoon .  Let it cool for few minutes. Cut with a knife into square cereal bars.

Serve, Eat and Enjoy!
