Gumdrop Cereal Bars Recipe

"I was planning to make traditional marshmallow treats but didn't have enough Rice Krispies on hand, so I used Corn Pops instead," recalls Laura Tryssenaar of Listowel, Ontario. "I added gumdrops for color, and the result was spectacular."

Ingredients

  • 5 cups Corn Pops cereal
  • 1 cup gumdrops
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
