Christmas Crunch Cereal Bars
These cereal bars are pretty similar to rice krispies treats, but I swapped in Chex cereal here. You can use corn or rice Chex.You'll melt your butter and marshmallows, pour in the cereal, and then add some red and green sprinkles and m&m candies. So easy and super festive!
Servings 16 bars
- 1/4 cup butter
- 10 ounces marshmallows
- 6 cups Chex cereal rice or corn variety
- 3/4 cup red and green m&m candies divided
- 2 tablespoons red and green nonpareils divided
In a large stock pot, heat the butter and marshmallows until melted together, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.
Stir in the Chex cereal, 1 tablespoon of sprinkles, and half of the m&m candies, being careful not to break the cereal too much.
Press the mixture into a parchment lined 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining sprinkles and candy over the top.
Use a piece of wax paper sprayed with non-stick spray to press the cereal bars tightly into the pan.
Let set for 30 minutes before cutting and serving.
