More About This Recipe

  • Don't settle for the ol' standard marshmallow crispy bar when you can amp 'em up with fabulous flavors, like lemon, strawberry and cookies 'n' creme!

    Marshmallow crispy bars are a staple around here. Not only are they super quick and easy to make, they’re also the gooiest, chewiest treat you could ever ask for.  And with the massive amount of them that I churn out every week, new flavor combos make super fun twists on an old family fave.

    Just check out these three new combos I created using fun flavored cereals and a touch of extra flavor in the marshmallow goo:

     1. Hershey's Cookies 'n Creme Cereal Crispy Bars

    What a great excuse to try out the new Hershey’s Cookies and Cream cereal! A little hot fudge sauce in the melted marshmallow mixture, and you've got yourself a terrific treat.

    2. Strawberry Cereal Crispy Bars

    Use Trix and strawberry extract to make these beautiful rainbow crispy treats. This was the kids’ favorite at our house!

    3. Lemon Cereal Crispy Bars

    And last but not least, my personal favorite! Add lemon zest and lemon extract to the marshmallows, then add Vanilla Chex cereal. It’s like a dream come true.

    Look at them all together. What a sight! Enjoy, and have a chewy, gooey day!
