Use the new Churros Cereal to make a fast no-bake treat in the mode of Rice Krispies!

As the Once-and-Future High Priestess of Churromancy in the Holy Taco Church, I cannot observe a product like Churros Cereal and simply walk by. No, I must experiment with it in the kitchen.

I resolved to adapt this cereal in the mode of Rice Krispies. The first thing I discovered: the box contains more cereal than needed for this process. Measure out 1.5 cups of the cereal to use in some other way, like for cereal (I know, a shock) or eat it straight, because the large pieces actually work well for that.

The bulk of the box’s contents, though, get coated in a mix of butter and marshmallows to create an ooey, gooey, delicious treat.

Yeah, there’s absolutely nothing healthy about this, but it sure tastes good.

This Bready or Not original uses Churros Cereal to create a Rice Krispies-style no-bake treat. Using the microwave makes the process especially fast, but this could certainly be done using a large pot on the stove.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups Churros Cereal
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 10 ounces jumbo or mini marshmallows 1 bag

Instructions

  • Prepare a 13x9 pan with nonstick spray. There are about 7 1/2 cups of Churros Cereal in the box, so measure out 1 1/2 cups to set aside for some other use.
  • In very large microwave-safe bowl, watch closely as the butter and marshmallows are heated on HIGH for 1 minute. Stir well. Heat for another 30 seconds and stir again; heat more if necessary. But once it stirs to be smooth, proceed immediately to the next step.
  • Add the 6 cups of Churros cereal to the bowl and completely coat.
  • Promptly pour the sticky mess into the prepared pan and use waxed paper or a greased spatula to press it down. Cool completely before cutting. Serve out of dish or pack into a sealed container with waxed paper between stacked layers. Best eaten the same day.
  • OM NOM NOM!
