Chocolate Coconut Marshmallow Treats. Does the flavor combination sound familiar? On Wednesday I shared my Chocolate Coconut Granola recipe and believe it or not, a bit of that tasty granola made it’s way into these dense and chewy cereal treats. I am all about chocolate and coconut! I’m still coming off of a post-holiday baking hiatus and have been focusing on no-bake treats and simple desserts. When I think no-bake a few things come to mind, but topping that list is always, always marshmallow cereal treats.

These particular marshmallow treats are something truly special. Made with chocolate Chex, chocolate coconut granola, and of course, a generous amount of Campfire® Mini Marshmallows, they’re chocolatey and chewy and finished with a drizzle of melted chocolate and toasted flakes of coconut. They also disappeared in about the same amount of time that it took to make them, which is saying minutes.

Having a few decked out cereal treat recipes in my back pocket is a must. I can make them nut-free and so often they are gluten-free as well. While I do not eat a gluten-free diet myself, I have more and more friends who do. Campfire® Marshmallows are gluten-free, as are the rest of the ingredients, including my Chocolate Coconut Granola recipe. If you are interested in using a store-bought granola and need to keep the recipe gluten-free, there are many different gluten-free options out there. One things is for sure, though:

You need to make these this weekend!

    I’m with you on the chocolate coconut combination. . .it’s like a match made in heaven.
     
    And Speaking of heaven. . .these cereal treats are absolutely heavenly.  I love that you amped them up by tossing in some granola. . .but my big question. . .since they are made with cereal and granola. . .does that mean they are A-OK to have for breakfast and not feel guilty?  😉
