Ode to Cereal/Kettle Corn Squares

I. Love. Cereal. Thank you Cereal, for being my breakfast. Give it up for Mr. Cereal!

Ode to one of the greatest breakfast foods (NOT oatmeal):
You go well with fruit and coffee...
...and with fruit and juice.
You Snap, Crackle, and Pop.
You go well with yogurt.
And with fruit.
You are the star of my favorite dessert, rice crispy treats:
Oh wait....that isn't rice crispies....is that...?
Kettle Corn.
Hellz yuh.

When you have this much kettle corn.....you need to figure out something to do with it. I didn't want to make popcorn balls. Too messy. I adore marshmallow everything. I adore rice crispy treats. So I whipped up these Salty/Sweet Popcorn Treats.

Marshmallow Kettle Corn Treats:
  • 6 cups kettle corn
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • 3 T butter
1. Grease a glass casserole dish, set aside
2. Melt butter in a saucepan
3. Add marshmallows and heat until they melt completely and begin to bubble
4. Mix in the kettle corn and coat completely in marshmallow
5. Press into casserole dish and let cool before cutting

Makes about 24 squares

Make Vegan by using 1 tub Ricemellow or equal amount vegan marshmallows and butter substitute.
They can also be made into marshmallow popcorn balls.
Just grease your hands and form into tight balls before the mixture cools.
