Captain Crunch and Pretzel Marshmallow Krispie Treats

How about some fun filled krispie treats that have a little salt in the mix?

It’s a match made in heaven, Captain Crunch with Crunch Berries, salty pretzels and don’t forget about the marshmallows.

These colorful crunchy treats will catch the eye of kids and grown-ups alike.

And they taste pretty darn good too.

Crunch, sweet, salt and repeat!

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Captain Crunch with Crunch Berries cereal, mini salted pretzel twists, butter, and mini marshmallows.

Here’s how to make it.

Grease the bottom and all sides of a casserole dish with butter (13 x 9 x 2- inch casserole dish).

Set aside.

To a large bowl,

add Captain Crunch with Crunch Berries cereal…

…and…

pretzels.

Gently mix the cereal and pretzels together and set aside.

To a large microwavable bowl, add marshmallows…

…and…

…butter.

Heat the bowl of marshmallows in the microwave for just 30 seconds.

With a large sturdy spoon, give the marshmallows a quick stir (they will be sticky).

Then put the bowl of marshmallows back in the microwave and heat them for another 20 seconds or just until they’re almost creamy but still have some marshmallow lumps in them (the small pieces of unmelted marshmallow add a nice contrast to the colorful cereal and pretzels).

To the bowl with the marshmallows…

…add the cereal and pretzel mixture.

Next,

with a large sturdy spoon,

gently mix together until the cereal and pretzels are coated with the melted marshmallows.

Transfer the mixture into the greased casserole dish.

Use a buttered spatula, wax paper, or add water to your hands and fingers.

Then gently press the mixture evenly into the dish so that it’s lightly compressed on the bottom and all sides.

Don’t press directly on the pretzels (so not to break them).

Let cool completely.

If pressed for time, chill in the refrigerator to speed up the cooling process.

Cut evenly into 12 squares.

Next…

…it’s time for the chef to do a taste test and sample the goods.

…yum…

These festive krispie treats are perfect for:

…hungry coworkers who didn’t have time to eat breakfast, or who need a pick-me-up snack around 3pm;

…parties for kids and grown-ups;

…a just-because-gift for a neighbor, friend or someone special;

…a lunch box surprise;

…a late night snack;

…or a snack any time of the day.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
