3 Ingredients: Cheerio Marshmallow Bars Recipe

Cheerio Marshmallow Bars Recipe

When it comes to teaching children their way around the kitchen, it’s best to start off with some simple fool-proof recipes. As their confidence and skills improve you can then move onto more complicated recipes.

This Cheerios Marshmallow bars recipe is a quick and easy activity you can do with your child that doesn’t involve any baking.  The hardest part is waiting an hour for it to set in the fridge before you can start eating it!  The butter and marshmallows do need to be heated in a microwave though, so parent supervision and help is needed.

3 tbs butter
4 1/2 cups of mini marshmallows
5 cups of plain cheerios

Grease a pan and put wax paper on the bottom
Get a parent to melt the butter and marshmallows together in the microwave. We recommend cooking for 30 second intervals until smooth to avoid accidentally overcooking.
Fold the cheerios into the the butter and marshmallow mixture, and spoon into the prepared pan.

Press into place with another piece of wax paper for an even layer

Allow to cool and then cut into bars.



Cheerios Marshmallow bars are great for birthday parties, picnic, afternoon tea play-dates or as a treat in your child’s lunchbox.

Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
