Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Substitute 3 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows for the large marshmallows.
  • tip 2
    Instead of making indentations and adding peanut butter cup candies, press 1/2 cup of candy-coated peanut butter candies into the cereal mixture.
  • tip 3
    These make great on-the-go snacks. Just place in a plastic container, and they're ready for the park or beach.
