M&M's® Captain America Captain Cap'n Crunch Marshmallow Treats
Everyone loves a marshmallow treat bar, but have you ever tried one with a different cereal? Marshmallow treat bars are super easy to make since there is no baking involved. I wanted to create a superheroes marshamallow treat bar for my kids for the movie release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. What better cereal to use than Cap'n Crunch! Toss in some bright M&M's and I have the perfect Captain Crunch Bars with M&Ms.
These treat bars are basically a krispie treat ramped up. Using a sugary cereal like Cap'n Crunch makes these marshmallow treats quite tasty and colorful. Since I wanted to celebrate the DVD release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I thought the Cap'n Crunch Berry Flavor was the perfect choice, they are fun and bright and delicious.
My son has been waiting (and waiting) for Captain America: The Winter Soldier to be released forever. He has been counting down to the day. We have been going to the movies all summer long and every time we exit the theater he simply states, "It wasn't as good as The Winter Solider". It is his favorite movie. Hands down.
What is the perfect way to celebrate than to make a M&M's® Captain America Cap'n Crunch Marshmallow Cake. The Cap'n Crunch Oops! All Berries just jumped right into my shopping cart. Plus, they are all on sale at a great price which is the best part.
Let’s check out the ingredients.
Captain Crunch Cereal, butter, marshmallows, and…. M&M's.
Here’s how to make it. Dump 2 boxes of Cap'n Crunch Oops! All Berries into a large bowl and separate the blue and red cereal from the rest of the cereal. This is a fabulous task for your little ones. Add the cereal in a large bowl, and set aside.
Melt the butter in the microwave. Next, add the marshmallows to a medium size glass bowl that can go in the microwave.
Add the melted butter in the bowl with the marshmallows and fully coat the marshmallows.
Heat the marshmallows and butter in the microwave for about 3 minutes or just enough so that the marshmallows start to melt. Then stir the marshmallows and butter together until smooth and creamy. Add the marshmallow mixture to the bowl of cereal and gently stir all ingredients together until the cereal is coated.
Coat two 8 inch round cake pans with non-stick cooking spray and then add the marshmallow and cereal mixture to it. Use a buttered spatula, wax paper, or add water to your hands to gently press the mixture evenly into the pan. Let cool. Once cool, take the krispie cakes out of the pans and stack on top of each other. Use wax paper or your hands to gently mold in place. Next, create your captain America shield using RED & BLUE M&M's on the top of the Cap'n Crunch cake.
We enjoyed our M&M's® Captain America Cap'n Crunch Marshmallow Treats and Captain American: The Winter Soldier. I will agree with my son, it was a fantastic movie. I can't wait for the next one!
