Chex WHAT? Chex Crispy Treats!
A few years ago, we were out of Rice Krispies cereal, and we NEEDED some Rice Krispie Treats. To appease the masses (a.k.a. my hubby and boys), I substituted Corn Chex instead, and a new favorite recipe was born. Sure, we could have used Rice Chex, but we love our Corn Chex. And when added to these treats, they have a great flavor which is better than Rice Krispies Treats! Don’t believe me? Try it yourself, and let me know what you think. Did I mention that this is super easy? Well, it is! Here’s the recipe:
Chex Crispy Treats
14 cups of Corn Chex (or one 14 oz box)
20 ounces of marshmallows (or two 10-oz bags of marshmallows)
1 stick of salted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Grease your cookie sheet with the stick of butter. Put remaining butter in a large, non-stick pan and melt over medium heat. When melted, add the marshmallows and stir to combine. Allow the marshmallows to melt, stirring occasionally. When the marshmallows are completely melted and incorporated with the butter, turn off the heat, and add the vanilla. Stir to combine. Add the corn chex and fold gently until all pieces are coated. Next, transfer the chex crispy treat mixture to your cookie sheet and press into the pan. Allow to cool before cutting.
