No Bake Cheerio cereal bars

We have been making a lot of homemade desserts lately for the kids lunch boxes. I want them to have a fun treat in their lunchbox and we have had a lot of fun trying out different things.

The other week the kids wanted rice krispy treats, but I didn’t have the rice krispies. However, I did have several boxes of plain cheerios in my pantry that I got on sale.

I used cheerios instead and the kids loved this new Cheerio bars recipe. They are definitely a keeper!

Next time you can get plain cheerios for cheap… don’t skip the sale. Instead, snag a box or two so you can make this easy and frugal treat.

Ingredients for no bake cheerio bars:

  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 bag (10 ½ oz) miniature marshmallows
  • 5 cups Cheerios cereal (We have used plain, honey nut cheerios and multi grain cheerios)

How to make cheerio bars:

First, grease a 9×13 pan.

In a pot, melt the butter over low with the marshmallows. Continue stirring until they are completely melted.

Once melted, mix in the cheerios.

Quickly press into the pan. Allow to cool completely – then cut into bars.

More ideas to try with cheerio treats:

You don’t have to just use plain cheerios. Whatever you have in your pantry or can get on sale will work! Multigrain, Apple Cinnamon and Chocolate Cheerios will all work if you want to try something different.

I’m always just using what I have and sometimes that means a little of this and a little of that 🙂 My kids love when I add in chocolate chips with the cheerios.

My favorite is white chocolate chips and I have been known to throw in some peanut butter chips! Truly you can use what you have.

Even a dash of cinnamon. The possibilities are endless and kids and adults will love this!

The kids will think you are the best for making these easy 3 ingredient cheerio bars!

They are perfect for after school snacks or to use as lunch box treats! Either way, they will love this No Bake Cheerio Bars Recipe.

Pre-made treats can be so pricey so I like to make a double batch of these. After they cool, I just throw them into little sandwich bags and they are ready to go for lunches all week.

This also works for after school snacks and will save you a ton of time and money.

    I make these with multi-grain Cheerios, but I add peanut butter and raisins. The raisins are my favorite.

  2. 4 stars
    These are really good, but maybe need 6 cups of cereal instead of just 5. It was quite the marshmallowy mess, but managed to get them together! They are yummy, but lots of marshmallow!
