These sweet, chewy cereal bars have a rich, nutty butter flavor, flecks of tangy cranberry, crunchy almonds and a white chocolate drizzle.


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 10 ounce bag of mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups Honey Bunches of Oats With Almonds
  • 1/3 cup chopped dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate melting wafers


  1. In a medium pan over medium heat, melt butter. Whisk continuously and be careful not to let it burn. Gently boil the butter until it foams, and then turns brown and has a nutty aroma.
  2. As soon as you see the butter has turned a light brown, turn the heat down to low and add the marshmallows. Stir them continuously until they are completely melted into the butter and turn the heat off.
  3. Stir in the salt, and then the cereal and cranberries.
  4. When the cereal is evenly coated in the marshmallow mixture, pour it into a greased 8 by 8 baking dish. Gently press it down into the pan.
  5. Melt the white chocolate wafers. I do this in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between.
  6. Pour the melted white chocolate into a Zip-loc bag and cut a tiny amount of one corner of the bag off.
  7. Drizzle the white chocolate over the cereal bars, and allow to cool and set. Cut into squares to serve.
