Strawberry Shortcake Cereal Squares

Updated: Apr 30, 2020


5 tablespoons unsalted butter (save the paper it’s wrapped in!)

10.5 oz (1 bag) marshmallows

½ cup strawberry jam


½ cup freeze dried strawberries


¼ cup strawberry syrup

1 cup white chocolate chips


½ cup nonfat milk powder

10 cups cereal/cookies*

*I like a blend of honey combs, Chex and Nilla wafers, extra credit if you find cereal with freeze dried strawberries already IN IT!


Spray your baking pan.


In a very large, microwave safe bowl, melt the butter and marshmallows together for 2 minutes. Remove from the microwave and stir, then microwave for 1 more minute. Stir until smooth.


Stir the strawberry into the melted marshmallows.

Cereal time!

Add the cereal (cookies if you choose) and white chocolate chips and/or milk powder the marshmallow mixture and stir with a spatula until every bit is coated.


Scrape the mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly with a greased spatula or with the butter paper (preach, gram!) Let cool until firm, 15 to 20 minutes, then cut into 3 rows of 3 squares to make 9 treats total. Store in an airtight container on your counter for up to 5 days.
