This is NOT sponsored -- I just adore anything pumpkin spice, and I love making quick and easy desserts and treats for the kiddos. And because these pumpkin spice Cheerios are already flavored, making the marshmallow bars is a piece of cake -- well, you get the idea.
How to Make Cheerio Bars with Marshmallows
This is your basic recipe for marshmallow cereal bars. You can use your favorite cereal here -- name brand or generic. Since Cheerios are larger than say, Rice Krispies, we used 7 cups instead of the usual 6.
Easy Microwave Cereal Bars
Use your microwave to melt the butter and marshmallows together in a large glass mixing bowl. You can use a large pot on the stove, but I think it's easier to clean the bowl.
Melt the marshmallows and butter in 30-second increments, stirring well in between. Then, stir in some vanilla.
Pour in the pumpkin spice cereal, and gently mix everything together until the Cheerios are well coated. A spatula is your friend here!
Spread the mixture into a well-greased baking dish. Now, you can top the bars with your favorite fall candy.
We used candy corn and some fall sprinkles. Fall M&M's or marshmallow pumpkins would work here, too!
