Blueberry Cereal Crispie Bars

Blueberry Cereal Crispie Bars

Blueberry Cereal Crispie Bars are like Rice Krispie Treats but ten thousand times better! Four different kinds of cereal combine with freeze dried blueberries for the ultimate treat.

So I had this brilliant idea…

I’d basically make Rice Krispie Treats…

But I’d put in all of my favorite cereals. Lots of cereals.

And blueberries. But not just blueberries…freeze dried blueberries. You can find them at Trader Joe’s or Target and they add flavor without the moisture which makes them perfect for cereal bars. Boom!

The result? Pretty much the most awesome Blueberry Cereal Crispie Bars EVER. They’re so darn good. You’ll die. Because I did. And so did my husband and my mom (who was visiting this weekend). 

Yum. That is all. Enjoy!

Ingredients
  1. 10 ounces marshmallows

Instructions
  1. Line an 8x8" baking dish with parchment paper and spray with nonstick spray.
