This twist on the classic rice krispy treat is a really fun way to enjoy your favorite breakfast cereal in a no-bake, marshmallowy, crunchy cereal treat for two! You can really use ay type of cereal you like, but my favorites are Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Reese's Puffs and todays version, using Honey Nut Cheerios.
The best part about these is that they are so easy to whip up with no baking required. There is no egg or dairy and they can easily be made gluten-free by using GF cereal. They make a perfect lunch box addition, morning grab-and-go breakfast or, cut them up into smaller pieces, for a tiny snack, anytime!
