Chocolate-Berry Bars Recipe

I created this recipe by accident when I wanted to make Rice Krispie bars with dried fruit. All I had in my cupboard were dried cranberries and chocolate chips, so I tossed them in.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:18 servings

Ingredients

  • 5-1/2 cups crisp rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1 package (10-1/2 ounces) miniature marshmallows
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons milk

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the cereal, chocolate chips, cranberries and wheat germ; set aside.
  • 2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the marshmallows, oil and milk. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 45 seconds; stir. Microwave 30-45 seconds longer or until marshmallows are puffed and melted; stir until smooth.
  • 3. Pour over cereal mixture; stir until chips are melted. Spread into a lightly greased 13-in. x 9-in. pan. Cut into bars. Yield: about 1-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.
