Ever since I found out that you can buy cereal marshmallows in bulk on the internet, I have been dreaming about making cereal marshmallow marshmallow treats. Similar to rice cereal treats, but with only the best part of any cereal- the cereal marshmallows! They have affectionately become known as "unicorn barf" around these parts, for obvious reasons, but what is a bad day for a unicorn is a delicious day for everyone else! They are super simple to make and look really pretty!
Step 1: Ingredients
For this recipe I used:
2 cups of marshmallows
2 1/2 cups of cereal marshmallows
1/4 cup butter for the treats, plus extra for greasing everything
You will also need a sharp knife, a sauce pan, a spatula and a baking tray or glass tray.
This recipe made 15 small pieces of unicorn barf but of course you can make more or less depending on how much you want, just keep the ingredients proportional.
Step 2: Melt down your marshmallows
Before you do anything else, butter up everything you are going to use for this recipe. This will keep it from getting as sticky from the melted marshmallows. Butter up your baking sheet or glass tray beforehand. Don't skimp on the butter. Butter your hands if you want to use them for mixing. Trust me, you'll thank me later!
Melt the 1/4 cup of butter in the sauce pan over low heat, and add the two cups of regular marshmallows and stir constantly until the marshmallows are completely melted. I found this goes faster if you chop up your marshmallows before you add them to the butter. Keep stirring until the marshmallows are completely dissolved and combined with the butter and have a smooth consistency.
