Cocoa Pop Marshmallow Krispies with Chocolate Nutella Icing – Gluten-Free

Coco Pops & marshmallow Krispies with nutella & chocolate icing
First, a disclaimer – I take no responsibility for any increase in your weight if you indulge in these. These are not particularly healthy but they contain no gluten. My sister, Janet, and I visit our mother once a fortnight and we alternate taking the goodies for morning tea. My mother is trying to stay gluten-free so I went roaming around my favourite food blogs and came across these at Cravings of a Lunatic. I guess you could even eat these for breakfast since they are full of cereal. By the way, that slightly pink hue in the bars is because the marshmallows were a mix of white and pink.

Ingredients:

  • FOR THE BASE:
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 400 gram bag of marshmallows
  • 1 box (11z/311g) of coco pops cereal

 

  • FOR THE ICING:
  • 1 cup of nutella
  • 1 cup of milk chocolate, chopped up
  • 2 tablespoons butter

 

Method:

  1. In a large microwaveable bowl, combine butter and marshmallows and cook for about 2 minutes. Check it every 30 seconds. Every microwave is a bit different.
  2. Remove and stir until smooth.
  3. Pour in cereal.
  4. Mix until well combined.
  5. Pour into a well-greased parchment lined pan.
  6. Smooth out with a spoon. Good tip here is to spray you spoon with non-stick spray. That way you can smooth the mixture without it sticking the spoon.
  7. Set aside.
  8. Combine all the icing ingredients in a microwavable bowl.
  9. Pop it in the microwave and cook for about 30 seconds until all melted.
  1. Stir until smooth.
  1. Pour over top of the base.
  2. Let cool.
  1. Eat at your own risk.

    My daughter and I had so much fun making these- thank you! She is 9 and downloaded and printed the recipe and stirred the melting, measured ingredients–all while being quite impressed with what happens to heated marshmallows and butter. I put the hot crunchy gooey mash into a pan and she iced it beautifully. Great fun.

      I am so glad you and your daughter had fun making these. Cooking together is a great exercise. I did a lot of it when my son was small though he refused to follow a recipe and created some very hard, inedible rocks at times. He now uses a recipe.
