My daughter-i-l needed to make a quick dessert to take somewhere, and I was at their house, holding their baby after dinner. I played with my granddaughter just a few minutes and then went into the kitchen. My daughter-i-l made this yummy dessert in the few minutes I was playing with the baby! I think I must have said, “Wow!”
Here’s the recipe for this absolutely yummy dessert. I like it better than Rice Krispie Treats because it’s not quite as sweet tasting plus it has a lot of flavor. And I think the Cheerios have more nutritional value than Rice Krispies. Just saying!
- 3 Tablespoons butter
- 10 ounces Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows
- 6 cups Pumpkin Spice Cheerios
Melt butter over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir until completely melted and mixed together. Take off the burner and add Cheerios, one cup at a time. Stir until mixed well. Spread mixture onto waxed paper or parchment paper, or spread in a pan that has been well buttered. Let cool and then cut into squares.
Melt butter and marshmallows in large, microwave-safe bowl for three minutes, stirring after one minute intervals. Stir well. Add Cheerios and mix well. Spread onto waxed paper, parchment paper, or spread in a pan that has been well buttered. Cool and then cut into squares.
