Cuisine: American
Serves: 18-24
Ingredients
  • ¼ c. butter
  • 6 c. mini marshmallows
  • ½ tsp. almond flavoring
  • ½ c. Nutella
  • 5 c. rice cereal
  • 1 c. dried cherries (I think maraschino cherries would be good too, but I have never tried it)
  • 1 c. chocolate chunks
  • Additional chocolate for garnish
  • Sprinkles for garnish if desired
Instructions
  1. Grease a 9" x 13" pan.
  2. Measure cereal and cherries in a bowl. Measure chocolate chunks in a separate bowl.
  3. Melt butter for 30 seconds in microwave.
  4. Toss marshmallows in melted butter. Melt marshmallows in microwave for 1 minute. Every microwave is a little different. Once they are puffy and remove from microwave.
  5. Add almond extract and Nutella to melted marshmallows. Stir until smooth.
  6. Quickly add cereal and cherries and stir to combine.
  7. Add chocolate chunks. Stir again. I don't add them with the cereal because they get too melted.
  8. Pour into greased pan. Spread and press to edges.
  9. Drizzle or frost with chocolate. Decorate with sprinkles if desired.
