French Toast Crunch Marshmallow Treats

French Toast Crunch cereal made into a marshmallow treat!  Have I totally lost my mind??  Nooooo….well maybe.  But these treats are pretty darn amazing.  That French Toast flavor with that creamy, marshmallow texture.  It’s almost like cereal and milk, but sooooo much better.  School has started here and this is a fun and easy treat to make for the kids!  Or for the adults…because aren’t we all really just kids at heart?

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was that General Mills decided to bring back French Toast Crunch cereal.  That was probably one of my FAVORITE cereals to eat growing up as a kid!  And kids these days should not be denied the pleasure of a yummy bowl of French Toast Crunch cereal.  Or a marshmallow treat made out of the cereal!

For those of you who are not familiar with my marshmallow treat recipes (I seem to have an endless amount of marshmallow treat recipes here on the blog), I add a bit of white chocolate to the mixture.  Totally optional, but it helps add a richness and gooeyness, AND YOU CAN’T TASTE THE WHITE CHOCOLATE!  Just try it!  I promise.  And sorry for yelling that at you….I wasn’t really yelling though.  Just more like speaking excitedly.  I am just passionate about my recipes 😉

And you can make this recipe plain, or add my maple glaze on top (which I totally recommend), which just amps that maple flavor to the max!

French Toast Marshmallow Treats

Print Recipe
Serves: 30 Cooking Time: 2-minutes

Ingredients

  • MARSHMALLOW TREATS
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 (16-ounce) bag mini marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I used Vain Mexican Vanilla extracted in Cane Rum)
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple extract or maple flavoring
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 6 cups French Toast Crunch cereal
  • MAPLE GLAZE
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons maple flavoring
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Instructions

1

Line a 9x13-inch baking dish with foil or parchment paper and spray the bottom and sides of the pan with baking spray. Set aside.

2

In a medium sized pot, on the stovetop, add the butter. Melt butter over medium-high heat. Once butter is melted, add the bag of marshmallows to the butter, reserving a 1/2 cup of marshmallows. Melt the marshmallows over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Once marshmallows are completely melted, remove the pot from the stove top.

3

Immediately stir in the vanilla extract, maple extract and white chocolate chips into the melted marshmallow mixture. Stir until mostly incorporated. Add the cereal to the marshmallow mixture, one cup at a time, stirring each cup into the mixture fully before adding the additional cups. After the cereal has been added, stir in the 1/2 cup of marshmallows reserved from the bag, into the treats (those marshmallows should melt a little, but stay mostly whole).

4

Pour mixture into prepared pan and gently press mixture into an even layer in the pan. Let treats cool completely before cutting into desired sized squares.

5

MAPLE GLAZE: To make the glaze, melt the butter in a medium sized bowl, in the microwave. Add the hot water, powdered sugar and maple flavoring to the melted butter. Stir until all ingredients are incorporated. Add more hot water or more powdered sugar to reach your desired consistency. I like my glaze thick. Use a spoon to top the marshmallow treats with the glaze. Glaze will set and firm up within a few minutes.

6

Topping the treats with the maple glaze is optional, but totally recommended. Allow the marshmallow treats to cool and set before adding the glaze.

Notes

Store treats in an airtight container at room temperature. Treats stay fresh for several days.

Getting a bite of one of the whole marshmallows is a fun little surprise 🙂

But you want to set these French Toast Marshmallow Treats over the top, right?  Then add that maple glaze!  It is L-E-G-I-T.  Totally worth the 2-minutes it takes to mix up!  And it doesn’t make the treats too sweet.  Surprisingly, the treats alone are not as sweet as they look.  That’s why I made the maple glaze 🙂

And top the glaze with some sprinkles too….because sprinkles = happiness!

So what’s your favorite cold cereal?  Your favorite marshmallow treat??  Hmmm…what cereal will I make a marshmallow treat out of next?!

XOXO,

Kelly

    Your french toast crunch marshmallow treats look pretty yummy. I do believe that I will have to add the maple glaze and probably even the sprinkles. I love the taste of french toast and as a dessert sounds even better!

    when french toast crunch came back a few years ago, i was so hyped. those mini toast shapes are too cute, and that maple-y flavor is so nostalgic of that fake maple syrup lol. they used to make treats like this with all sorts of cereal at my dining hall, but this one sounds so much better (and doesn’t have brightly colored food dye bleeding into the marshmallows).
