These cereal treats are awesome. They are crispy and chewy and have a creamy, ooey, gooey center. It's like a texture party in your mouth! Since they are made with cereal and have the addition of peanut butter, which adds protein, that means you can eat these for breakfast, right? I'm sure they are better for you than the cereal treat bars you can buy at the grocery store.
Send these in your kid's lunch, your hubby's lunch and your lunch and everyone will be happy campers!

Fluffernutter Cereal Treatsadapted from: Cookies and Cups
(Printable Recipe) or (Printable with Picture)
1/4 c. unsalted butter
1 (10.5 oz.) bag mini marshmallows
6 c. Honey Bunches of Oats cereal
3/4 c. creamy peanut butter
1 c. marshmallow fluff or creme
Spray a 15x10-inch cookie sheet with cooking spray. Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add the mini marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat and stir in the cereal. Spread cereal mixture evenly into the prepared baking sheet the best you can (your clean hands will work best to help spread it out). Let cool for 10 minutes. When cooled, cut the entire rectangle in half. Spread marshmallow fluff or creme on one side and peanut butter on the other side. Pick up one half and flip it over on top of the other half to sandwich the two sides together. Cut into squares when ready to serve. Store in an air-tight container.
Jenn's Notes: I used the regular Honey Bunches of Oats cereal, but I think the one with sliced almonds would be amazing too!
