I can't help it but my obsession with chocolate covered anything is getting crazier and crazier just like this blog. Don't even ask where I got the idea for chocolate covered marshmallow treat cereal, it kind of just happened. Sometimes I don't know where a Food Crazie post is going to end up but you got to admit, it's always entertaining.
Ingredients for making Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Treat Cereal:
- half a bag of marshmallows
- 3 ounces of Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips (for making the melted chocolate)
- 1 to 3 cups of your favorite crispy cereal for making marshmallow treats, it really can be almost anything although wouldn't recommend something such as Grapenuts.
- half a stick of butter
Start off by making marshmallow treats. Do this by melting at least half a stick of butter and then pouring it on your marshmallows.
After you pour your now melted butter onto the marshmallows. Heat your marshmallow butter mix in microwave until mostly melted and then stir together throughly.
Pour the melted marshmallow mixture over your cereal that should be in pyrex dish of some sort and mix together throughly. Then a spatula press this mix down evenly into your dish. After this you're done with making your marshmallow treat,
Steps for melting the chocolate chips:
Add 6 oz of chocolate chips to a Double Boiler and after the chips are melted (as above) your done with this step.
Pour your melted chocolate over your marshmallow treat and put it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
After of which you can either eat your chocolate covered marshmallow treat or if your really brave try it out in cereal form with milk. Either one is up to you. I tried the chocolate covered marshmallow treat cereal and it was really over the top but I can see how it might be appealing if your like something such as chocolate chip pancakes drenched in syrup. If you think about it, this is not much different so give it a shot but this definitely gets the ranking of try at your own risk. Oh, on that note, did I say if you're a fan of chocolate.... then you should check out my other blog, it is called the The Choco Aholic after all.
