Kashi Krispies

Made with whole-grain Kashi cereal, this spin on Rice Krispies squares is a big hit with kids. Some even like it better than the traditional version, on which this recipe is based. You can use any whole-grain cereal but I like the Kashi Seven Grain.


  • 4 cups puffed whole-grain cereal
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup chocolate chips


Butter an 8-by-10-inch (or similar sized) pan and set aside.

Heat the butter in a pot over medium heat. Add miniature marshmallows and stir for 2 minutes or until melted. Add cereal and cranberries and stir until cereal is well coated. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips. Scrape mixture into prepared pan and use a spatula to pack it tightly. Let set until firm. Cut into squares. Serves 8 to 10.
