  • Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add the butter and melt.
  • When the butter has melted, stir in the marshmallows. Continue stirring, until marshmallows have just melted. Remove from the heat. 
  • Stir in the cereal until mostly coated in marshmallows.
  • Add the sprinkles and most of the m&m candies. Reserve a handful of m&m's for sprinkling over the tops of the bars. Stir the mixture together.
  • Press the mixture into a greased 9x13 baking dish. Press the remaining m&m's onto the top of the bars.
  • Let cool 10 minutes before cutting and serving.



You can create these bars for any holiday by switching out the sprinkles and m&m candies with various colors!
