Berries and cream treats are a perfect snack to make for an after school snack. Or an afternoon snack, since most of the kids are not able to go to school right now.

Why not let your kids help you make them? It can be a nice break for you and your kids. Personally, I feel that everybody needs to learn basic cooking skills, and these days that you are stuck in the house can be a perfect opportunity for teaching your children some cooking skills.

What Ingredients Do I Need For Berries and Cream Treats?

  • Freeze-dried raspberries or strawberries
  • White chips

 

How Do I Make Berries and Cream Treats?

  • Butter or grease a 9″ X 13″ baking pan.
  • In a large kettle, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Add the marshmallows and stir to melt.
  • Remove from the heat and add the cereal; mix to combine.
  • Gently stir in the chips and the freeze-dried fruit.
  • Place the mixture into the baking pan and smooth.

Can I Make Berries and Cream Treats in the Microwave?

  • If you want to use your micro wave to make your treats, place the butter and the marshmallows in a large glass bowl.
  • I always put my power level of the micro wave to 6 so that it will not get so hot, and burn the marshmallows. Then I microwave the marshmallows in 1 minute increments. 
  • After the marshmallows are melted, you will want to add the cereal of your choice.
  • Gently stir in the chips and the freeze-dried fruit.
