Caramel and Marshmallow Cereal Mix

A sweet, crunchy, cereal mix that can be baked in the oven or microwave.

Sweeten cereal mix isn't something I make to very often. If cereal is bought, it's for breakfast.  We eat alot of cereal in the summer, for breakfast and snacking.

But, I found a recipe that sounded pretty darn easy and delicious, so, why pass it up?  Also, besides the cereal (which was on sale!) and M&M's everything else was in my pantry.

I baked ours in the oven, but, the original recipe gives instruction to make in the microwave. Which, I would of done, but, my microwave is a bit touchy and honestly, a pain in the butt, so, in the oven it went. 🙂
This mix is really crunchy, sweet and very addictive.

Be ready to eat multiple bowls of it and one sitting!
