Chocolate Irish Cream Cereal Bars

Chocolate Irish Cream Cereal Bars (gluten free) recipe by Kyra Bussanich

Things have been nuts here, with all sorts of projects in the works. BUT, late last night, I was inspired by the bottle of Bailey’s in my liquor cabinet and the box of Mom’s Best Cereal Crispy Cocoa Rice cereal. (Did you know that this is totally gluten free? And that there are several flavor options that are gluten free? Woo Hoo!)

Anyway, I digress…I started thinking about crispy rice cereal bars, and the combination of chewy marshmallows and crisp cereal. And Bailey’s. And crispy rice cereal… you get the picture. So, I made up some Chocolate Irish Cream Cereal Bars and they are delish!

These bars are a snap to pull together. Since it uses the whole box of cereal and the whole bag of marshmallows (minus one, which I ate), you almost don’t have to measure anything! And they are so good: chocolately, gooey, crispy, and fun to eat!

Well? What are you doing still reading this boring blog post? Get in the kitchen and whip these up. They take a bit of time to set up, but I made these at 10 o’clock at night and they took 8 minutes. Then, this morning, I woke up to cereal bars for breakfast. (What? It’s CEREAL, right?)
