Hello, ‘mallow fellow!

hero 5 aHow are you, little bundle of gooey goodness? 🙂

Let’s say July is on the horizon and you’re gearing up for picnics, pontoon rides & pool parties as well as fireworks and friend time. Why not consider whipping up a batch of these no-bake cereal bars in just a few minutes! Simply start with these basics…

This guy doesn’t take himself too seriously, though. At the end of the day, here’s a sharable goodie perfect at snack time, as an easy treat and for friendly meetups. In other words…summer.

To start…

Melt 3 Tbsp butter in the microwave

Next I poured the melted butter to a larger glass bowl and added a half-bag of the Jet-Puffed S’mores Marshmallows (18 fluff bombs, or about 9 oz) and heated them in the microwave for about 2 minutes, stopping after :45 seconds or so to stir.

Then, I added 1 Tbsp Wild Raspberry Jam from Jams by Jan (Yay for the locals!) to the marshmallow mixture and stirred it well. Next, I added…

3 cups Blueberry Chex

4 cups Rice Chex

1/4 cup dried cherries

1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts

Then, I stirred well and pressed the mixture in to a buttered 9×11 pan. And sprinkled with 1/2 cup white chocolate chips and a few extra dried fruits (berries & cherries) I had in the cupboard.

Waited (impatiently) for the bars to cool and then sliced & served.

That’s about it! I hope you enjoy!
