# Servings: 12
3 cups miniature marshmallows
2 tablespoons light whipped butter or light butter spread
4 cups Multi Grain Cheerios Dark Chocolate crunch cereal
3 tablespoons miniature semisweet chocolate chips
12 paper lollipop sticks, if desired
Step 1: Line cookie sheet with waxed paper or cooking parchment paper.
Step 2: In large microwavable bowl, microwave marshmallows and butter uncovered on High 45 seconds to 1 minute. Stir until smooth.*
Step 3: Immediately stir in cereal and chips until evenly coated. Let cool for 10 minutes, or until mostly cool. Press mixture firmly into 12 two-inch balls (if necessary, lightly spray hands with cooking spray to prevent sticking; wash hands occasionally, and re-spray). If desired, insert paper lollipop sticks into center of each cereal ball, pressing firmly around each stick. Store loosely covered. Best if served the same day.
- *You can make the marshmallow mixture on the stovetop. In 3-quart saucepan, melt marshmallows and butter over low heat, stirring until marshmallows are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and continue as directed in step 3.
