Oreo Marshmallow Crispy Treats with Marshmallow Crispy Oreo Cookies

I live for special edition, fleeting flavors. So, when I heard about Marshmallow Crispy Oreos, I swooped up two packages as soon as I could get my hands on them. For this recipe, I decided to do a flavor flip-flop: I put the Oreos that taste like a marshmallow crispy treat into a marshmallow crispy treat… that tastes like an Oreo. Look Out!

Cap'n Crunch Sprinkled Donut Crunch Marshmallow Treats with Powered Donuts and Glazed Donut Vodka

I'm a sucker for Cap'n Crunch. I will never stop eating it as well as its many variations. The latest twist the Cap'n is making happen is changing not only the flavor of the cereal but the shape into sugar, sweet, sprinkle covered circles of love with Sprinkled Donut Crunch. Yes, a cereal that tastes like donuts (and it does). 

With this recipe, I've turned this breakfast pastry cereal into a marshmallow treat and tripled the donut flavor by adding actual powdered donuts as well as Glazed Donut vodka. Did you know there is Glazed Donut vodka? Do you know how I know? Because that's what I use when I make vodka tonics. Judge me.

Anydonut, the recipe is below. I would tell you to "enjoy!" but you can't possibly not...

Donut Cereal Marshmallow Treats with Powered Donuts and Glazed Donut Vodka

  • 6 1/2c Cap'n Crunch Sprinkled Donut Cereal
  • 10.5 oz mini marshmallows
  • 4T butter
  • 1 oz Glazed Donut Vodka
  • 12 mini powdered donuts
  1. Do your prep work: Grease 9x13 pan with shortening. Measure out cereal into large bowl. Coarsely chop donuts (in sixths). 
  2. Melt butter over medium heat on stove. Add marshmallows and heat until melted, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir vodka into marshmallow mixture.
  4. Remove from heat and stir cereal and chopped donuts into marshmallow mixture until fully combined.
  5. Spread coated cereal into prepped pan and cool completely before cutting.
With the addition of the alcohol, the marshmallow treats don't set up as sturdily as other non-boozy variations. So make sure to really wait until they are cool, and even then, don't be discouraged if they are a little gooey. 

This is like shoving a crunchy donut into your face, and it's awesome. Sprinkled Donut Crunch is a limited edition cereal, so get out there and buy it before you miss out.
