Easy Treat Idea- Quaker® Life Cereal Bars #QuakerUp #LoveMyCereal

We are HUGE fans of cereal in our house.  The amount of cereal we go through in a week is crazy.  I #LoveMyCereal so much that I could have it for any meal of the day.  If I don't have cereal in the morning for breakfast, I usually have some kind of cereal for lunch.  One of our favorite brands of cereal is Quaker®, we love it!  I thought that it would be fun to make a fun treat with one of my favorite cereals- Quaker® Life cereal.  I made it for a treat for my kids but I also thought that it would be a fun treat for a neighbor or friend.  Something that you could give any time of the year, not just during the holidays.  I made up a fun printable to go with it.

I headed to Walmart and got several of the Quaker® cereals.  I found them in the cereal and breakfast aisle.  I also found the rest of the ingredients at Walmart, I found those mostly in the baking aisle.

Here are the cereals I got, these will #QuakerUp our pantry :). I love them as cereal but I also love to use the Quaker® Simply Granola on my yogurt, for a little crunch and flavor.  I also bought the Quaker® Real Medleys® and Quaker® Oatmeal Squares.  They are going to be perfect for breakfast this week!

This is what you'll need for the Quaker® Life cereal bars:
1 bag mini marshmallows
4 Tbsp butter
3/4 chocolate chunks

1) Melt the butter and marshmallows in the microwave.  I put them into the microwave in 30 seconds increments until it was all melted and smooth.  I also left a few marshmallows out so I could use it as a topping.

2) Add the Quaker® Life cereal and stir it until the marshmallows are evenly coating the cereal.  Then add the chocolate chunks and stir.
3) Place into a casserole dish and let cool for 30 minutes.

While the cereal bars cooled, I made some fun printable to go with them.

I cut out the tags and then put them onto a plate of the cereal bars.  What a fun way to tell someone that you appreciate them.  These are perfect for friends or even family.

You can even do little individual ones.  I think that these would be so fun to give my kids after school as their snack :).
