Chocolate Cheerios Marshmallow Bars

I do want to apologize for not posting much this week. We went to Texas to see mom and dad. I had great plans of doing a post or two from their house... but I just didn't do it. It was great being in Texas with friends and family. Dad is at the end of his radiation - very tired but hanging in there. He will start chemo in about four weeks. Thank you for the continued prayers.

Just before we left, I made a new fun bar recipe that my friend Anne over at Annie Bakes suggested. She got this recipe for Chocolate Cheerios Marshmallow Bars from Pillsbury and they had cut there bars into hearts. We loved this new recipe. Our oldest daughter had some friends over and between the teens and the family - we ate every bite.

Chocolate Cheerios Marshmallow Bars


1 cup flour
1 cup Chocolate Cheerios cereal, crushed
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups mini-marshmallows
2/3 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 bag (11.5 ounces) milk chocolate chips
4 cups Chocolate Cheerios


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line bottom and sides of a 9 x 13 pan with foil. In a large bowl, mix all crust ingredients except marshmallows with electric mixer on low speed until crumbly. Press firmly into bottom of pan.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven. Immediately sprinkle with marshmallows. Return to oven; bake and additional 1 to 2 minutes or until marshmallows just begin to puff. Cool while preparing topping.

In a large saucepan, place all topping ingredients except cereal. Heat over medium-high heat just until chips are melted (7 to 8 minutes), stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in 4 cups cereal. Immediately spoon warm topping over marshmallows; spread to cover. Cool completely, at least 1 hour.

Using foil to lift, remove mixture from pan; remove foil. Cut into pieces and store loosely covered.
