These Blueberry Chex Krispie Treats are ooey-gooey marshmallowy and packed with blueberry and lemon flavor! They’re a total treat!
We’re gettin’ nostalgic today folks.
I’m thinking back to the days when some form of krispie treat graced my pantry when my boys were young. They were always a special addition to their lunchboxes growing up.
I don’t often indulge, but when I do decide to treat myself, I make sure it’s a krispie treat tailored to my liking. Not just a plain old version. It’s gotta be over the top delish.
I shared my Oreo version a while back and they’re crazy good, so if you haven’t given those a try, I highly suggest you make a pan. You won’t be disappointed.
I got the idea for this Chex™ version when I was shopping down the cereal aisle at the market recently and came across some Blueberry Chex™ Cereal. I think you already know my love for anything blueberry, right?
This version is crunchy and chewy, loaded with dried blueberries, some freshly grated lemon zest and lots of ooey-gooey marshmallow! It’s an easy no-bake dessert that the kids AND adults are sure to love. Enjoy!
A Few Cook’s Notes for Blueberry Chex Krispie Treats Recipe:
You can find dried blueberries at most local supermarkets in the aisle with the raisins or dried fruit.
When folding in the cereal and blueberries, mix gently with a rubber spatula so you don’t crush the cereal.
When you pour the mixture into the pan, only press down lightly on the top of the treats with a rubber spatula, that way you’ll have fluffier treats.
If you don’t have a 9-inch springform pan, you could also use an 9×9 pan for this recipe.
These Blueberry Chex Krispie Treats are ooey-gooey marshmallowy and packed with blueberry and lemon flavor!
- 6 cups Chex Blueberry Cereal
- 1/2 cup dried blueberries
- 6 Tbsp. unsalted butter
- 1 10-oz. bag mini marshmallows
- 1 Tbsp. freshly grated lemon zest
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Lightly spray a 9-inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray. (If using a 9x9 pan, lightly spray pan with nonstick cooking spray. Line with parchment paper, leaving a bit of an overhang on all sides for easy removal. Spray parchment lightly with nonstick cooking spray.) Set aside.
Combine cereal and dried blueberries in a large bowl. Set aside. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add marshmallows and stir with a rubber spatula until melted and smooth, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in the lemon zest and vanilla extract.
Remove from the heat, and gently fold in the Chex cereal and blueberries until well combined. Quickly spread the mixture into the prepared pan. Using a rubber spatula sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, just press down lightly on top of treats to even out.
Let the pan cool to room temperature on a wire rack. Remove the pan. Cut into wedges. Store in airtight container.
