General Mills Cereal Breakfast Pack Marshmallow Treats

Can't decide which kind of cereal marshmallow treats you want to make today? Good-for-you Cheerios or fun and fruity Trix? Cocoa-y Puffs or Cinnamon-y Toast Crunch? Why not grab a General Mills Cereal Breakfast Pack and create one treat to rule them all. With eight different cereals in each square—you get the fun flavors of all the sugary cereals you love, but, hey, there are THREE bags of Cheerios in it, so it's totally maybe good for you.

General Mills Cereal Breakfast Pack Marshmallow Treats

Ingredients

  • 1 package (all 8 cereals) General Mills Cereal Breakfast Pack
  • 1 bag (10.5oz) min marshmallow
  • 4T butter

Directions

  1. Prep 9x13 pan with shortening for easy removal after cooling.
  2. Open and combine all eight bags of cereal into one giant bowl. 
  3. Restrain yourself from pouring a gallon of milk over it and eating the entire bowl right here and now.
  4. Melt butter over medium heat in a large pot on the stove.
  5. Add marshmallows to melted butter and stir occasionally until the mallows are fully melted.
  6. Remove pot from heat and immediately add cereal, stirring until cereal is evenly and fully coated.
  7. Spread cereal-mallow mix into prepped pan and leave on counter to cool.
  8. Cut into 6x4 "squares" to get 23 (that's 24 minus the one that "fell on the floor") servings.

Pros: Quick, easy, Cheerios lower your cholesterol.
Cons: Harder to eat with milk and a spoon. (Although they are still completely dunkable.)

The verdict: If awesome were a crime, these octo-cereal treats would be guilty as charged.
