I was going through an old copy of a cooking magazine I had laying around the house and tore out recipes I thought Husband would enjoy. They were sitting in a stack on the kitchen table and when eating breakfast on Saturday he pushed this one towards me with a grin. It didn't take genius to learn this is the one he wanted me to make next.
This is different from what I usually make but man it's pretty darn good. I'll list the recipe and instructions as it comes and then put my comments below.
Peanut Butter Cereal Treats
30 large marshmallows
3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp peanut butter
6 cups peanut butter cap'n crunch
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate m&m's
In a large saucepan, combine the marshmallows, butter, and peanut butter. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until melted. Remove from the heat. Stir in the cereal an M&M's.
Pat into a 13x9-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into bars.
I actually followed the recipe as indicated except I used multi-grain peanut butter cheerios instead of cap'n crunch cereal. I figured the cheerios had to be a bit healthier and we would be more likely to eat what was left over that way.
After making this there are a couple of things I would change. 30 large marshmallows isn't exactly one whole bag but it's somewhat close. I would just add the entire bag next time, minus the ones I eat. Is it just me or do others forget how good marshmallows are until you have a bag in front of you and decide to snack on one? Also, the m&m's was almost an entire bag so this is one that next time I would just dump in the entire bag instead of measuring. Ok..and minus the ones that I decide to eat because who can resist eating m&m's? Although I suppose if you buy one of the large sized bags you would want to measure. or not.
