More About This Recipe
  • Two kinds of chocolate cereal plus the usual crispy bars stuff make these easy, gooey chocolaty treats doable in minutes.

    Soft and gooey, these bars call for just a few easy ingredients and taste so good, the kids in one household called them “utterly ahhhmazeballs."

    Get your main ingredients lined up: Hershey’s Cookies & Cream AND Chocolate Toast Crunch (for that extra chocolatey kick), butter and marshmallows.

    From here things move quickly, so buckle up and get ready for dessert.

    Pulse the cereals in a food processor until they turn into crumbs.

    Heat mini marshmallows JUST until they’re melted. Not QUITE melted. Just barely almost melted. This is the trick to super gooey bars.

    Mix the cereal with the (almost) melted marshmallows.

    Press the bars into a lightly greased 9x9-inch pan. You can press a few extra bits of cereal on top for décor.

    Cool until firm, about an hour.

    Then…cut. Into squares.

    Now, if you’re feeling fancy, pipe a bit of melted dark chocolate and Betty Crocker vanilla frosting up top. It’s like extra, extra cookies and cream flavor.

    Once the bars cool, serve them up to everyone you love!
