You guys, I’m so excited to share this with you! My coworker and I were at CVS on our lunch break when I spotted a big box of Corn Pops on sale for $2. Now, we rarely have these types of cereals anymore. We usually have the boring adult cereals at home. We never buy lucky charms, corn flakes, cocoa puffs, the real sugary stuff anymore. BUT when I spotted these corn pops, something came over me. It was some weird nostalgic feeling and I was like I HAVE to get a box, and while we were walking back to the office, I was wracking my brain of what treat I could make with these instead of just eating them straight out of the box – which, I may or may not did with the leftover corn pops. My lips are sealed! ;)

Anyway, so I decided to just put a spin on regular rice krispy treats and make corn pop treats! I like mine extra gooey with more marshmallow than cereal but you can totally swing the other way or you can be all for the equality of equal parts!

Y’all, these were addicting. Jason and I relived childhood by eating these for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (haha sounds a bit more like college ’cause I’m sure our parents would never let us do that). Our tummies were full and our time travel was bittersweet..and now you guys get to do the same! :)

Ingredients

  • 7 cups corn pops cereal
  • 1 10 oz bag of large marshmallows
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter

Instructions

  • Line the bottom of a 9x13" baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large pot, melt 6 tbsp. of butter over medium high heat then pour in the 10 oz. bag of marshmallows. Stir continually until the marshmallows have all melted. You need to stir frequently to keep the marshmallows from burning.
  • Remove pot from heat and pour in the corn pops cereal. Mix/stir until all the corn pops are covered in the marshmallow mixture. If you feel that you need more cereal, add more, a 1/2 cup at a time. Like I mentioned above, I like mine more marshmallow/gooey.
  • Immediately pour contents of the pot into prepared baking pan and using the back of a silicone spatula, gently press down on the mixture to evenly spread it throughout the pan.
  • Let cool for 2 hours then cut into squares.
  • These are best eaten the day of. By the next day, the cereal gets somewhat stale and soft.

Hi!

These look great. Do they get soggy or rock hard? If so, how could I prevent that? I want to store these for a little while.

Hi, they don't get soggy or rock hard. They're actually kind of soft, in my opinion!

I would drizzle chocolate or white chocolate over the top. Yum!

Ha-ha. I'm assuming the glass she used was not oven-safe.

Hi, sorry that happened to you but I'd just like to point out that if you truly did follow instructions exactly; you would've read that the mixture is made in a pot on the stove then poured into a baking pan to set up. I'm not quite sure how your glass bowl would shatter unless you put the bowl on the stove?
