Notes

🔢 Recipe Yield
This recipe makes 8 fairly large treats. As you eat the gooey squares, they soften and kind of just melt in your hands - they are so messy but so good.
🥫Storage/Shelf Life/Reheating
These treats should be stored in the refrigerator only because they will melt. They are fine kept at room temperature if you want to bring them to a part and the air conditioning will be on, they will just be a little soft and gooey. (At a picnic, they will just be really gooey - but honestly, that is the best part.)
These treats are best eaten within 24 - 48 hours but will last 3 - 5 days. We store them either in an air-tight container or just with some plastic wrap over the top.
📋 Tips
Add extra marshmallows when you stir in the cereal. They leave these delicious marshmallow-y pockets of melty deliciousness throughout the treats.
Give these treats plenty of time to set up. If you are bringing them somewhere in the morning, make them the night before - bringing them somewhere in the afternoon, make them the morning of. (If you are just snacking on them an hour or two is plenty of time.)
