    In 4-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add marshmallows; cook and stir until melted. Remove from heat; gently stir in cereal and 1 cup of the freeze-dried berries until evenly coated with marshmallow mixture. Spread in pan. Spray or butter hands, and firmly press mixture in pan.

    Sprinkle top of bars with remaining 1/2 cup freeze-dried berries. In small microwavable bowl, melt chips uncovered on High in 30-second bursts, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. Drizzle over bars. Let stand at room temperature until firm, about 2 hours. Lift from pan by paper overhangs to remove. Cut into 4 rows by 4 rows.

Expert Tips

If you want these bars to set faster, pop them in the refrigerator for 1 hour before cutting.

You can use any freeze-dried berries you like. I used a combo of strawberries and raspberries, but blueberries would be great, too! I find them at well stocked grocers near the raisins and other dried fruit.

If you can’t find Very Berry Cheerios™ cereal, original Cheerios™ cereal works just as well! Add an additional 1/2 cup of berries to the mixture to bump up the berry flavor.
