Captain Crunch and Froot Loop Marshmallow Krispie Treats

I was inspired to make these Krispie Treats by a fellow blogger….

One of my favorite pictures of a recipe was of some Trix Krispies made by Kim at Cravings of a Lunatic.

The pictures of Kim’s Trix Krispies were so pretty and looked downright magical.

It was such a good idea to use such a colorful cereal to make Krispie Treats that I just had to make some myself.

The two cereals that just happened to jump right off the shelf and into my grocery cart were Captain Crunch and Froot Loops.

Plus, they were on sale at a great price which is the best part for a Coupon Clipping Cook like me.

These Krispie Treats are delicious made into the traditional squares but here’s an idea….

…..try making them into Krispie Treat Pops dipped in candy toppings.

Fun to make and fun to eat too.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Captain Crunch and Froot Loop Cereal, butter, marshmallows, and….

….candy toppings.
Here’s how to make it (adapted from the original recipe for Rice Krispie Treats).

Add the cereal in a large bowl,

and set aside.

Next,

add the marshmallows to a medium size glass bowl…..

……that can go in the microwave.

Add the butter in the bowl with the marshmallows.

Heat the marshmallows and butter in the microwave for about 3 minutes or just enough so that the marshmallows and butter start to melt.

Then stir the marshmallows and butter together until smooth.

Add the marshmallow mixture to the bowl of cereal and gently stir all ingredients together until the cereal is coated.

Coat a casserole dish or pan (13 x 9 x 2 inch pan) with non-stick cooking spray and then add the marshmallow and cereal mixture to it.

Use a buttered spatula, wax paper, or add water to your hands to gently press the mixture evenly into the pan.

Let cool and cut into squares.

An option is the dip the Krispie squares in candy toppings.

Another option is to add water to your hands, roll the mixture into balls, and let cool.

Then add a lollipop stick to each ball,

and….

…..dip them into candy toppings.

Enjoy~

Ultra Yum.

A fun treat for parties.

    Looks amazing, I have to test it.
    Just one question: What is cooking spray?
    Never heard of it before.

      Hi Gizzy, so glad you asked this question, I should have put “non-stick” cooking spray. One brand is call PAM and it’s less calories than using a lot of butter; it’s in a can and located by the cooking oils at the grocery store. I’m going to update the post just in case others have the same question. Thank you again and have a great week!
