Chex marshmallow bar Tips:

mix while the marshmallows are hot

When you pull your marshmallow mixture out of the microwave, give it a quick stir making sure the butter is fully melted and mixed into the marshmallows and quickly mix in the Chex cereal. This makes it easier to stir, if you wait too long the marshmallows start to harden and it can be a workout to stir.

wait to add the sprinkles and m&ms

Although you might want to mix in the M&Ms and Sprinkles into the marshmallows and Chex, wait till you press the mixture into the pan. With the melted marshmallows being so hot it will slightly melt the colors off of your sprinkles and M&Ms, mixing it into the bars.

It doesn’t take long for it to firm up and be ready to eat. Let it sit out at room temperature. Do not put them in the refrigerator or freezer or they will be too hard to eat.
