These are so easy and so yummy!
Granola Bars

4 c. miniature marshmallows

1/4 c. margarine or butter

6 c. granola

You make these just like rice krispies treats. Just melt the marshmallows and margarine in a bowl in the microwave. Stir to blend and even out consistency. Add granola. Stir to coat. You can add in dried fruit if you like, or chocolate chips*. Spread into a 9x13 pan and let cool. Cut into bars. Makes a dozen nice sized bars!

*if you are going to add chocolate chips, make sure the mixture has cooled a bit so that they don't melt!

Marshmallows! Not just for S'mores!

But, speaking of S'mores, I love "S'mores on a Stick"

Take a marshmallow, dip it in melted chocolate, then roll in crushed graham crackers. Easy? Oh yes! And these can be individually wrapped and given as treats!


Sugarplums are a holiday favorite around here. Again, marshmallow on a lollipop stick, dipped in a great colored candy coating, and then sprinkled with sprinkles.

Rice Krispies treats are well-known, but you can also make Fruity Pebbles treats, Cheerios treats, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch treats the same way. Use any cereal you have lying around, or a combination of cereals.

And then there's marshmallow art. Leave your marshmallows out to harden a bit. Dampen one end, then they'll STICK to just about any surface. Do not ask me how I know this! This can be fun with the different holiday shaped marshmallows, and the colored ones can make lovely mosaics!
