Yield: Makes 24

Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 bag (10 ounces) marshmallows
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups toasted oat cereal
  • 1 cup dried cranberries or raisins

Directions

  1. Spray a 10-by-15-inch rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Line with waxed paper; spray paper with cooking spray, and set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add marshmallows and salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until marshmallows have melted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in cereal and dried cranberries.
  3. Immediately transfer mixture to prepared baking sheet. Using a spatula (or your fingers) coated with cooking spray, press in quickly and firmly. Let cool, about 1 hour; cut into 24 bars (3 rows lengthwise by 8 rows crosswise). Store in an airtight container up to 2 days.
