Cereal Squares

I would be fairly willing to say that cereal squares are one of my favorite sweet snacks. And I think one of the reasons I love them so much is (aside from being delicious) there's tons of options for them. Once I made them with regular Rice Krispies and added pastel sprinkles after the marshmallow, and then used cookie cutters to cut them into Easter shapes.

Pretty much any cereal works fine for cereal squares, although if a cereal is too sweet (say you're being begged to try them with Cookie Crunch) you can cut the sweetness with a neutral like Rice Krispies or Cheerios.

The basic recipe is 2 tablespoons of butter and 10 oz of marshmallows melted on the stove, add 6 cups of cereal. This recipe fills about an inch in the bottom of a 9x13, and can be cut in pretty much any size square, rectangle, or cookie cutter shape. Using cookie cutters can be fun if the treats are going to be given away-- it leaves lots of scraps for the kids (and you!) to eat.
