So this past week I felt totally jam-packed with information. I am (-) this close of going on overload! But gotta keep ma-focus y'all hahaha but not before I posted this so easy to make fun snack! Thanksgiving is next week and I am super excited about the uber recipes I have been ogling are just so fall, and harvest-y I can't wait to bake 'em.
I must say this recipe was super easy to make, I love it! Unfortunately I couldn't find sugar-free marshmallows. But I shall keep looking because this is just too good to pass up on. My boyfriend, Brian said they were very "meaty" that apparently the Froot-Loops give it a very substantial, filling taste that you can't find in a regular rice-crispy. That it does :D Plus the macadamia nuts or any salted nut actually is meant to balance out the sweetness from the marshmallows and Froot-Loops.
(So colorful and yummy!)
This recipe makes 12 marshmallow froot-loop squares
Marshmallow Froot-Loop Squares
- 3 tbs. unsalted butter, plus more for greasing the pan
- 10 oz. package of regular marshmallows
- 2 cups crispy rice cereal (aka rice crispies)
- 2 cups Froot-Loops
- 3/4 cup macadamia nuts (or any salted nut of your liking)
- Cover an 8-inch square baking pan with heavy duty aluminum foil. Make sure the foil is tucked very well in the corners and leave at least 1 inch of the foil to overhang the top of the pan on all sides.
- Lightly butter the bottom and sides of the foil-lined pan
- In a large saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Add the marshmallows and stir with a wooden spoon, preferably...although I used a large metal spatula it worked fine. Stir until everything is melted. Watch-out not to burn the marshmallow...stir,stir,stir don't let it just sit there because it will burn!
- Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the rice crispy, Froot-Loops and macadamia nuts until everything is evenly coated.
- Turn the mixture into the prepared baking pan. Butter a spatula or spray with cooking spray and spread the mixture evenly across the pan. Let it cool completely
- Take the overhanging foil and lift the marshmallow mixture and place it on a plate/cutting board. Cut into squares and keep them wrapped in plastic at room temperature for (2-3 days mmmhuh)
