You see…This cereal is made up of cocoa corn puffs and ADORABLE little marshmallow pieces in the shape of pandas and stars.

To make these rainbow cereal balls, you will need the following ingredients:

4 cups cereal (Berry Colossal Crunch OR Kung Fu Panda Po Power Crunch)
20 big marshmallows
2 tbsp unsalted butter
1 cup of add-ins (almonds, dried cranberries, candies e.t.c)

Note:
You can adjust the amount of marshmallows based on your preference. I didn’t want the marshmallows to overpower the cereal. So, this was a good enough amount for me and also easier to handle.

And here are the steps:

Step 1:
Melt butter and marshmallows in a non-stick saucepan.

Step 2:
Add the cereal.

Step 3:
Mix everything with a plastic spoon until you end up with a big marshmallow cereal ball.

Tip:
Spraying the spoon with some oil will prevent the cereal from sticking to it.

Take small portions of this marshmallow cereal mixture and fill the center with almonds, dried cranberries or whatever else you like.
