I used a recipe for Rice Krispies Treats, but I used honey nut cheerios instead of Rice Kripies. And I found a variation where you add coconut and coconut extract, so I did that too.
When the kids got home from school I told them I made them a treat.
“They are kind of like Rice Krispie bars.”
“What’s that?” Andrew asks.
“you don’t know what Rice Krispie bars are?”
“Do you know what Rice Krispies are?”
“ok. well. I think you are going to like them.”
My kids are so weird. How do they not know this stuff??
3 T butter
10 oz bag of marshmallows
1/2 t salt
1/2 t almond extract
6 cups cheerios
1 cup flaked coconut
Melt the butter and marshmallows in a pan on the stovetop, stirring until smooth. Add salt and extract to the melted marshmallow mix. In a large bowl combine coconut and cheerios. Pour marshmallow mixture over the cereal mixture and stir until cereal is evenly coated. Press mixture into a 9×13 inch glass pan using wax paper to protect your hands from becoming WAY too messy. Allow bars to cool before cutting.
