  • 2 packages mini marshmallows
  • 10 oz bittersweet chocolate

  • 10 tablespoons butter

Steps

  • 1
    Separate the marshmallows from the rest of the cereal in both boxes. 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.
  • 2
    Pulse both cereals separately in a food processor until they are a breadcrumb consistency.
  • 3
    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.
  • 4
    Remove from pan and cut into 24 bars.
  • 5
    In a double boiler, gently heat some chocolate with the remaining two tablespoons of butter until melted.
  • 6
    Dip cereal bars in chocolate to form candy bars. Allow to cool in the fridge on baking racks.

  • 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. They look really cool and are perfect for Halloween!
