Rainbow Treats

Use Froot Loops cereal instead.


The package of marshmallows I looked at recently called for 3 TB butter, 6 cups mini marshmallows, and 6 cups cereal. Granted, they're trying to sell marshmallows... We tried it that way and it's just too much marshmallow.


[May 2019. I used Fruity Pebbles, which are marked Gluten Free, and Nucoa margarine, to make them dairy-free. A general note: don't use a larger pan, it's hard enough to spread it out in the 9x13.]
