Melted Marshmallow Cereal Balls

 For some reason, I won't name any names...ahem grandma....we had a surplus of Cheerios and Trix cereal. A party was coming up and we needed another desert so we decided to use what we had and made melted marshmallow cereal balls. It was a perfect desert to make with the kids plus we were able to make it a day ahead of time.  All you need is one bag of mini marshmallows, butter and the cereal of your choice.

Melted Marshmallow Cereal Balls

3 Tbsp Butter
1 Pkg Mini Marshmallows
6 cups of Cereal

Place butter in a large bowl and melt in microwave for about 45 seconds.  Add marshmallows and Stir.  Place bowl back into microwave again for 45 sec. Stir once again. Continue placing in microwave for 45 sec increments and stirring until all marshmallows have melted. Add cereal and stir. (this was perfect for the kids they love stirring things)  Place some wax paper on counter. (if you are making ahead of time place the wax paper in the bottom of a Pyrex that has a lid to store) Butter up your hands and roll mixture into a ball (kids favorite part). Place on wax paper to harden. We tried putting some on sticks but the sticks kept falling over...It's better for them to harden just a bit then add stick.
