Monster "Mash"mallow Cereal Treats

What's yummy, quick, sprinkled all over and "ghoulishly" delicious? You guessed it!

Ingredients

3
cups each Count Chocula™ cereal , Frankenberry™ cereal, and Boo Berry™ cereal (9 cups total)
3
oz butter
15
oz marshmallows (1 1/2 10 oz bag)
1/4
cup chocolate chips
1/2
cup white chocolate chips
Sprinkles, for garnish, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Grease two cookie sheets or 2 muffin tins and place each cereal in a separate, heatproof bowl.
  • 2 Heat the marshmallows and butter in a sturdy saucepan over low heat until fully melted, smooth, and glossy.
  • 3 Working quickly, add 1/3 of the marshmallow mixture to one of the bowls of cereal. Mix well, then add 1/4 cup of the appropriate chips (chocolate for Count Chocula™, white chocolate for the berry cereals), and stir to combine.
  • 4 Using your hands, roll the mixture into 3 inch balls, roll in sprinkles, and place on cookie sheets or in muffin tins to cool.
  • 5 Repeat with the remaining two cereals, reheating the marshmallow mixture over low heat as necessary, to keep it warm and liquid.
  • 6 Roll each treat in sprinkles, and allow treats to cool before serving.

Monster "Mash"mallow Cereal Treats

As prepared by Michelle P,

October’s plenty busy. The kids’ school assignments are getting harder, football season’s in full swing and then there’s Halloween.


You’re either making costumes, buying costumes or reinventing old ones. (Last year’s pirate, with bandana and fake earring, is this year’s gypsy!) Add in repeated trips to the store to buy candy, pumpkins, the pumpkin-carving tools you forgot when you bought the pumpkins and the ever-increasing vats of hair product you need to give your youngest son the perfect Bieber swoosh, and who has time to bake for the latest school fundraiser?

No one.

So don’t. Make something easy, on the stovetop, that takes less than 30 minutes. I speak, of course, of Monster "Mash"mallow Cereal Treats. Made with melted marshmallows, Count Chocula, Frankenberry and Booberry cereal, what’s not to like?  And with Halloween upon us, what’s more seasonally appropriate than a “monster” cereal?

monster marshmallow melted butter

First, melt 15 ounces of marshmallows with three quarters of a stick of butter (that’s 6 tablespoons or 3 ounces, for those of you who buy butter in bulk) in a sturdy saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally. Smaller marshmallows melt faster, of course, but use what you have — it will all end up equally gooey eventually.

Meanwhile, measure out three cups of each Monster Cereal, putting each in a separate bowl.

These could not come together more quickly. Once the marshmallows and butter have become gloriously one, spoon one third of the hot gloop into a bowl of cereal. Stir and fold, mixing thoroughly, and then add ¼ cup of the appropriate chip (chocolate, of course, for Count Chocula, and white chocolate for Franken- and Booberry). If you add the chips in at the same time as the hot marshmallow, they’ll just melt away into nothingness- you want them to stay whole, and just streak slightly through the cereal mixture.

Now, the messy part. Reach on in to the warm, sugary mass and pull out a hunk about halfway in size between a golf and tennis ball. Roll it around in your hands until it’s spherical (or commandeer some free after-school labor to do this part for you), then plop on a greased cookie sheet or into a greased muffin tin.

After that batch has been formed, roll each ball in appropriately ghoulish sprinkles, and move on to the next cereal. You might need to warm the marshmallow business up slightly, until it’s hot, loose, and flowing again.

Enjoy!
