Strawberry and chocolate are made for each other, but you can mix up the flavor with by using another type of preserves. Raspberry is delicious!

Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12 treats
Ingredients
  • 6 cups cocoa crispy cereal
  • 10 ounces marshmallows (Use marshmallows like Dandies if you want to keep the recipe vegan)
  • ¼ cup dairy-free buttery spread (such as Earth Balance)
  • ¼ cup strawberry preserves
Instructions
  1. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Pour the cereal into a large bowl.
  3. Melt the marshmallows, buttery spread, and jam over medium heat in a saucepan, stirring constantly until the marshmallows are just dissolved.
  4. Immediately scrape the melted mixture into the bowl with your cereal, and working quickly, stir it together.
  5. Scrape the mixture into your prepared baking dish and press it in. You can spray your hands with cooking spray or use a piece of parchment paper to keep it from sticking to your hands a you press it in. You can also spray a spatula if you want to be more civilized, but then there isn't anything to lick off your fingers. Not that I would do that.
  6. Let them cool, then cut into treat-sized bars.
Notes
Freezer-Friendly: These may be my favorite easy, no-fuss dessert. I cut them and put them in the freezer and they were GREAT still partly frozen.

Quick Variation: You can alternately press the crispy mix into cupcake liners (place them in muffin tins so they hold their shape as you press the mixture in) and top with your favorite dairy-free candy or sprinkles.
