Fluffernutter Cereal Treats

PB Treat 1

It’s snowing! Took long enough for us to get a proper snow this season. I think that I’ll appreciate the beauty for now. I feel like most people really enjoy the first time it snows because of the innate natural beauty of it, but then after the second or third time it turns into  ‘ugh there’s white stuff falling from the sky again. One of my friends once made an analogy and it went something like this:  so at first snow is a beautiful cascade of powdered sugar when we get the first fall of the year and then it turns into dandruff once we’re sick and annoyed of it. I thought it was a pretty good analogy haha.

So for now I’ll call this snow powdered sugar since it is a very nice snow, light and fluffy (perfect for snowballs). Also, powdered sugar is much sweeter than dandruff, and therefore probably much more relevant to a baking blog. Or at least I would say so! Anyway, the sweetest thing about this recipe is how EASY it is. So easy. So delicious. Without further ado, I bring you:

Fluffernutter Cereal Treats:

3 c cheerios or any kind of plain cereal

1 bag of marshmallows

3 Tbsp butter

1/3 c peanut butter

See I told you, only 4 ingredients. That’s my kind of recipe! You can feel free to add chocolate chips or anything else that strikes your fancy!

1. Melt the butter, marshmallows, and peanut butter in the microwave at 20 second intervals

2. Once melted, mix the ingredients together into a smooth mixture

3. Immediately after combined, stir in the cereal until completely coated

4. You can either make these in a pan and cut them into bars the way you would rice krispie treats or you can mold them into little balls like I did and let them sit out on a greased cookie sheet for about 20 minutes.

5. Enjoy!

  1. Hahah powdered sugar it is then! We’ve had a few snow storms already and the beauty of the snow has been replaced by the agony of driving in it. But I’m glad these treats are the opposite; easy, sweet and amazing!!

    • Yea I can imagine–driving in the snow is always a giant pain. These cereal treats are definitely the opposite, as you said, and worth trying out if you get the chance :).

    • Thanks so much Jen! It definitely gets exhausting to have so much snow out here. It would be nice to spend some time in SoCal! It was great to be part of Saturday Night Fever and I look forward to participating in the future. Thanks for pinning :).
