Rice Krispie Treats with Cinnamon

     We bought a fire pit this summer, and we have really enjoyed having smore's whenever we feel like it. One day, I decided to use the leftover marshmallows to make Rice Krispie treats. It seemed like I had everything I needed, but I fell a little short on the cereal. I replaced the Rice Krispie's with some Dora cereal. What's Dora cereal? It's what you end up with when you take your two year old shopping with you. No, really it's a tiny star shaped cinnamon flavored cereal. It's actually pretty good...think churros. I might even buy it even if I didn't have a temper-tantrum throwing, "Mom, I will die if I don't get Dora cereal" toddler in the cereal aisle.
     Anyhow, these Krispie treats came out even better than the originals, which is pretty hard to beat in my opinion. It makes me think of other cereals to experiment with in the future. What have I been missing out on all this time?

Only 3 ingredients...How can these be so good?
6 cups Rice Krispies (and Dora cereal)
7oz jar Marshmallow cream or 10.5 oz pkg marshmallows
3 Tbl butter

  • Melt butter on low. Add marshmallow cream or marshmallows and stir until smooth and melted.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Add cereal and stir until well coated. 
  • Spray a 9x13 pan with nonstick spray.
  • Press mixture evenly into pan. Allow to cool before cutting into squares. 
  • Lick spoon. This is quite possibly the best part...warm Rice Krispies.
