I started with the basic Rice Krispies Treats recipe and tweaked it. Since the original calls for 6 cups of cereal, I decided that I should aim for about 6 cups of dry ingredients total. I used about 1cup of pomegranate flavored craisins and dried pineapple chopped up for the "Fruity" part. Then I added about a cup of honey roasted cashews which I also chopped. I then added what was left in my container of oats, which was about 2 cups for the "Oaty" part. I finished it off with about 2 cups of Rice Krispies. After I had all the dry stuff mixed together, I melted a 10 oz bag of marshmallows with about 4 tablespoons of butter over low heat. Once it was all melted and smooth I dumped in the dry ingredients and stirred. It was really, really thick and not at all easy. I scraped the whole mess into a greased 9X13 baking dish and used greased plastic wrap to smoosh it all down. I let it sit for a couple of hours to firm up and then cut it into roughly granola bar shapes. If I had a functioning printer I would have printed off some Fruity Oaty Bar wrappers from the internet. But alas, I don't...so I didn't.
They don't honestly look like much, but they taste good and I'm certain that my hubby will get a kick out of them. :)
