(Coastal Christmas - Day 15) Favorite Holiday Treat Recipe

So what do us beach cottage dwellers eat for treats during the Holidays?  The same thing as you! Sometimes it feels like everyone thinks that all we eat is seafood...well, we do eat a bit of seafood but not as a sweet treat! lol.

We're all about simple around these parts. We don't just make and eat these treats during the Holidays but we love them so much in our cottage that we seem to have a fresh batch around all too often.  Neither Liz or I have the patience for any recipe with a ton of ingredients and this fits the bill perfectly.  The hubby begs for these things as he is a huge fan of chocolate and marshmallows so who are we to say, "No!"? 

You'll recognize the general recipe as it's been a staple in many households throughout the years...Rice Crispy Treats...with a little twist.





We actually use Cheerios (or our favorite knock-off bagged cereal) and they are FABULOUS! They tend to satisfy those that love sweets and those that don't.  




Cheerio Marshmallow Treats

Ingredients:
5 cups Cheerios
4 cups Mini Marshmallows
1 cup Milk Chocolate Chips
2 Tablespoons Butter

Other:
Butter
Wax Paper
Rectangular Glass/Metal Pan

Directions:

Pan Preparation...
  • Line your rectangular pan with a sheet of wax paper.
  • Scatter a few marshmallows and chocolate chips around the bottom of the pan (this will become the top of your treats)

Over medium heat...
  • Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in the bottom of a non-stick cooking pot
  • Add marshmallows to melted butter, stirring constantly until they are melted.
  • Take off heat and dump in your Cheerios.
  • Stir to evenly distribute melted marshmallows over all Cheerios.
  • Quickly mix in chocolate chips to distribute evenly.
  • Press mixture into pan. {We usually lightly butter a small piece of wax paper and push the mixture in with our hands.}
  • Cool and then cut into bars ~ ENJOY!
