Colorful Crispy Treats


These treats are a snap to whip up! I make them for swim meets where my children are always looking for a quick burst of sugary energy when swimming a quick race. I’ve also made them for children’s parties and get togethers….they are always the first treat to disappear! If these little gems last more than a day, wrap them individually in cellophane and store them in an airtight container for further enjoyment.

Colorful Crispy Treats

3Tbls. margarine
4 cups mini marshmallows
1 tsp. vanilla extract
½ tsp. salt
4 cups crispy rice cereal
2 cups any colorful fruit flavored cereal

In large saucepan melt margarine over low heat. Add marshmallows, vanilla, and salt; stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
Add cereal. Stir until well coated.
Using buttered spatula or oiled hands evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2” pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares.
