box Frankenberry™ cereal
2
packages mini marshmallows

ounce bittersweet chocolate
10
ounce milk chocolate
10
tablespoons butter

Directions

  • 2 Next, mix the cereal marshmallows with the other marshmallows in a saucepan with 8 tablespoons of butter. Cook over low heat, stirring often until it becomes a marshmallow sauce.
  • 3 Pulse both cereals separately in a food processor until they are a breadcrumb consistency.
  • 4 Mix each cereal with half of the marshmallow sauce.Layer the cereals in a shallow baking dish and press down really hard so it becomes a connected block that is fairly level on top.

  • 7 Dip cereal bars in chocolate to form candy bars. Allow to cool in the fridge on baking racks.

Monster Cereal Candy Bars

As prepared by The Food in my Beard,

People at the grocery store probably think I am weird.


Like, REALLY weird. I run around that place, always searching. For what? Who knows. Something is there, and I am going to be the one to find it. A new herb in the produce section? I get my face right in there and take a big whiff.

I have been known to stand in front of the onions and feel each and every one to make sure I leave the store with the best onion they have. When I discover an exotic ingredient I didn't expect to find at my normal corner grocery store, I have a mini celebration right in the aisle.

This past week when I was walking through the store, I saw something that made me literally drop my basket in shock. A huge display of Monster Cereals, ready for Halloween! I love the monster cereals, but you can usually only find them in October. I’ve been so busy, I totally forgot that it was time for my old friends Franken Berry and Boo Berry to return to the shelves.

They aren't only good for breakfast; they also are lots of fun to cook with. Last year I made a very tasty Boo Berry Ice Cream. This year I decided it would be fun to make Monster Candy Bars out of the cereals.

Ingredients for Monster Cereal Candy Bars

Step one is to separate the marshmallows from the cereal. Hand this step off to someone who doesn't mind completing mindless repetitive tasks. Next, add the marshmallows from both boxes into a pot with two bags of store bought marshmallows and a half stick of butter.

Hello, old friends.

Grind the cereals up a bit.

The marshmallow sauce comes out a weird grey color. Don't worry though, it tastes good.

Mix half of the sauce into each of the cereals, then layer them in a shallow baking dish. Toss this in the fridge for an hour or two to firm up.

Chocolate for Monster Cereal Candy Bars

When it’s time to dip the bars, melt some chocolate and butter on a double boiler. Make sure to just melt it and not let the heat get too high, or the mixture will seize up.

Cut this into bars. Remember to make them small because if they’re too big people are less likely to eat one. If they are small, people will eat two!

Dipping Monster Cereal Candy Bars

I use chopsticks to dip the bars. This is kind of a hard technique to get the hang of if you aren't used to doing it, but as you practice you will get much better. Just make sure you have your heat at the right temp, all the bars are nearby, and there is a place to put them after they are dipped.
