Traditional rice crispy bars with a twist! Get the kids involved in making these treats. Pair them with a glass of milk for an after school snack or sneak them into their lunchboxes for a sweet surprise.

What You Need

15 oz box apple ring cereal 16 oz bag large marshmallows 3 tbsp butter or margarine non-stick cooking spray

What You Do

Over medium-high heat, melt butter in a non-stick saucepan. Add entire bag of marshmallows to the pot. Stir constantly until all of the marshmallows have melted. Remove from heat. Pour entire box of cereal into a large non-stick pot or bowl. Pour marshmallow mixture over the cereal. Stir to completely cover all of the cereal.

For Round Apple Crispies:

Lightly spray your hands with non-stick cooking spray. Shape cereal mixture into balls. Store in an air tight container or wrap individually in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to allow to harden slightly.

To Freeze:

Arrange the rounds in a single layer on a baking sheet, freeze. Store in freezer bags once frozen. Make sure to thaw them individually, not touching, on a flat surface to ensure that they don’t stick together.

For Thick Apple Crispy Bars:

Press cereal mixture in a lightly greased 9 x 13 pan. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate for at least 2 hours to allow bars to harden slightly before cutting.


To ensure easy cutting, spray your knife with non-stick cooking spray. This will prevent the knife from sticking to the marshmallow.

To Freeze:

If you do not individually wrap the bars in plastic wrap, make sure to layer wax paper in-between the bars to ensure that they don’t stick together.
