Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Instructions

Add the cereal, 3 Tbsp of sprinkles and the peanut butter cups to a bowl. In a small saucepan, over low heat, melt the butter then stir in the marshmallows. Continue to stir until the marshmallows are completely melted and the mixture is smooth. Pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal and mix until combined. Press into a lightly buttered baking dish. Pop into the fridge for 15 minutes until cooled and set. Cut the cereal treats into 8 pieces. Place a saucepan with a small amount of water just enough to cover the bottom, place a glass bowl on to. Keep the heat at the lowest heat. Add the chocolate chips to the bowl and stir frequently until the chocolate is melted. Shut the heat and remove the bowl from the pot. *Be sure to use a rubber or metal spoon, wood will add moisture and the chocolate will seize up* Dip an end of each bar into the chocolate then into the sprinkles. Place onto parchment paper lined baking sheet and pop into the fridge just to harden the chocolate.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Many people proclaim the health benefits of honey, saying it possesses antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Although the extent of its health benefits in humans remains unclear, studies have indeed confirmed that honey can help with cold symptoms and even heal wounds and prevent infections. If you're looking to reap the potential health benefits, dark raw honey is likely the best option.

  • If you really want to benefit from chocolate's health benefits, use cacao nibs instead of chocolate chips. They are much less processed than chocolate chips and have no added sugar!

  • If you're following a vegan diet (or avoiding dairy), make sure the brand of chocolate chips you buy is suitable for your diet! Always read the labels carefully. If you cannot find chocolate chips free from milk or other dairy in stores near you, look online.

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

Green Tips

  • Buying local honey from beekeepers in your area not only supports your community but helps those beekeepers protect bees! LocalHarvest can help you locate some tasty honey produced near you.
