  • 11 ounces cheerios I used multi-grain with oat clusters
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 6 ounces mini-marshmallows
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • Combine the cereal with the almonds and set aside.
  • In a large pot melt the butter. Add in the mini-marshmallow and stir until almost completely melted. Add in the vanilla and stir. Next add in the cereal/almond mixture and fold the cereal in with the marshmallow.
  • Add the cereal mixture into a parchment lined 13x9 pan.
  • With lightly oiled finger tips, press the cereal into the pan. Let the cereal cool for 20-30 minutes.
  • Remove and with a sharp knife, cut the cereal into 20 equal sized bars. Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
