Ingredients

  • 3 cups Captain Crunch Cereal
  • 3 cups Froot Loops Cereal
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows or about 40 large marshmallows, 10 ounce package
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Candy sprinkles

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, add both types of cereal.  Set aside.
  • To a microwavable medium size glass bowl, add the marshmallows and butter.  
  • Heat the marshmallows and butter in the microwave just enough so that the marshmallows and butter start to melt (about 2 minutes).  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.
  • Cut into squares and serve.  Or see more options below.
  • Add Candy Sprinkle Toppings - for added color, top the squares with candy sprinkles; put the candy sprinkles in a small shallow bowl, lay one krispie square at a time in the candy sprinkles and press down slightly so that the candies will stick to the top.
  • Making Krispie Lollipops - just after mixing the cereal with the marshmallow mixture, wet your hands and roll the cereal and marshmallow mixture into balls (about the size of a golf ball or slightly bigger).  
  • Set the balls on parchment paper and let cool. Then add a lollipop stick to each ball, and dip them into candy toppings.
