The Cheerios® Cookbook shares a recipe! The sky's the limit when it comes to crafting cereal cutouts. Choose hearts, stars or animals, or stick with circles and let your child go crazy with the decorator icing.
Updated Apr 11, 2006

Ingredients

  • 10 cups Cheerios™ cereal
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 bag (10.5 oz) miniature marshmallows (6 cups)
  • 1/2 teaspoon food color (any color)
  • Betty Crocker™ decorator icing (from 4.25-oz tube), if desired
  • Assorted candies or small gumdrops, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Spray a 15x10x1-inch pan with cooking spray. Pour the cereal into a large bowl.
  • 2
    Place the butter and marshmallows in a 2-quart saucepan. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
  • 3
    Stir in the food color until the mixture is evenly colored. Pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal and stir until it is evenly coated. Pour the mixture into the pan. With the buttered back of a spoon, press the mixture in the pan until it is even. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4
    With 2-inch cookie cutters, cut the mixture into shapes. Decorate the cutouts using the decorator icing to attach the candies. Store the cutouts in a loosely covered container.
