Froot Loop Marshmallow Treats
I LOVE Rice Krispie Treats. I can make and eat an entire batch by myself no problem; they are so addicting.
That being said, when I was a kid, my mom would make Rice Krispie Treats and swap out the cereal. She made them with Cheerios, Frosted Flakes, and any other old cereal we had sitting in the pantry dying a slow stale death because us kids would be way more excited about opening new boxes instead of finishing old ones.
My mom never made them with Froot Loops because that was one of the cereals that never made it to stale island so if I'm really honest, I never really thought about making Rice Krispie Treats with Fruit Loops instead.
Last year, I worked at a ballroom dance studio and every November, they do a month of themed dance parties as a part of their Fall Festival. I was in charge of planning out the themes, buying all of the supplies, decorations, and figuring out the food for the party. I love to cook and bake so I was really excited to have an excuse to make a bunch of random treats for a bunch of people I love.
One of the themes I came up with was "Crayola Craze" where everyone was supposed to show up in a single color so we could make a giant dancing rainbow.
I was green, in case you were wondering.
The whole studio was decked out in rainbow streamers and balloons and I covered the front office with a GIANT rainbow of paper butterflies. Definitely some of my best work when it comes to parties I've planned.
Because I'm very extra and very type A, food wise, everything was on theme and also rainbow. we had seven layer dip, rainbow goldfish, rainbow pretzel rods, rainbow cupcakes, and Froot Loop marshmallow treats.
Guys, if you have never had a Froot Loop marshmallow treat, you are missing. out. These things are so good and so addicting and so easy to make that the only reason why I don't make them all the time is because I'm somewhat attempting to be healthier. They're also just so fun and literally perfect for any occasion.
I hope you have as much fun making/eating these as I do!
Froot Loop Marshmallow Treats
makes a full cookie sheet
9 cups Froot Loops
1 bag of Large Marshmallows
6 1/2 tbsp Butter
Start by putting the butter in a stockpot and melt on the stove at medium heat. After the butter is completely melted, add in the entire bag of marshmallows. Constantly stir the marshmallows so they melt evenly and don't burn to the bottom of the pan.
Once the butter and marshmallows are melted and mixed together, remove from heat and add in the Froot Loops two cups at a time and mix in until coated with the marshmallows.
Get out a cookie sheet and line with either foil sprayed with cooking spray or wax paper. Spread the marshmallow treats onto the tray and either let sit out on the counter for about an hour or in the fridge for about twenty to thirty minutes.
After your treats have set, go ahead and cut them into squares. Enjoy!
Take a shot for all of the marshmallow bars that didn't make it to the party and toast to the fact that I have a whole batch to eat now.
