marshmallow_cereal_treats strawberry_kix_marshmallow_treat thyme_pops_marshmallow_treat chex_mix_marshmallow_treat marshmallow_treats Hey guys! Today we have a few versions of non-rice krispies (cereal) treats! I love rice krispies treats, but I love and prefer using cereals aside from rice krispies. We have a simple browned butter, thyme and corn pop treat, a freeze-dried strawberry, white chocolate crispy ball and kix treat, and finally a dark chocolate, butterscotch and corn chex treat! These are just some of my favorite marshmallow cereal treats combination, but you can use whatever cereal and mix-ins you want. Just make sure to stay within the ratios given for the marshmallows, butter, cereal, and mix-ins to make sure you get a perfectly chewy, sticky and crunchy treat! Enjoy! xx, Jenny

    I like the slightly savory version with thyme. And nice call on the addition of browned butter. That sounds like something right up my alley since I don’t usually crave for something chocolate ladened or overly sweet.

    Soo, how long did these last before being gobbled up! :)

    You’ve inspired me! I’m going to surprise the family with a unique twist on these treats. French Toast cereal with Chocolate and Bacon with a dash of Cayenne?

    I have such a soft spot for recipes that are more like formulas. Makes them so versatile.
    I wonder if nesquick is still a thing…

    Love these ideas – I never thought of using herbs in my cereal treats! Thanks for the inspiration :)

    I’m going to make these the next time I’m up for “office treats”… but what exactly are “white chocolate crispy balls”?

    How do you make the white chocolate crispy balls though?

      You don’t need to make them, you can buy them. I got them at a whole foods location. They’re basically like “crunch bar” white chocolate balls.

    I love making cereal treats. These all look wonderful; especially the treats with the fresh herbs and spices. xo

    I’m typically a marshmallow treats purist, but Captain Crunch treats would have me. They all look so fun!

    These look AMAZING!
    My sisters are vegetarian, and vegetarian marshmallows are crazy expensive compared to normal ones. With rice krispie treats, I’ve used marshmallow fluff, since it’s vegetarian, and it’s actually worked really well. Do you have any idea if that would work for these? I’m a little worried it wouldn’t since the cereal is much bigger than rice krispies and may need more elasticity than the fluff can give… any idea?
    Thanks and loveee the blog! :)
