Tailgate Treats

I know football tailgate season is winding down, but if you're looking for a quick, easy dessert to take to a remaining tailgate this year look no further! A few weeks ago I went to a tailgate and made some delicious no-bake cookies & cream treats and Golden Grahams treats.

The Cookies & Cream treats came from Pinterest and the original recipe can be found here. It is super easy and only requires three ingredients: crushed Oreos, butter, and marshmallows.

Here are the directions for the Golden Grahams treats. I modified a Cinnamon Toast Crunch treats recipe from another blog. I would link to it but it has been removed.

4 cups mini marshmallows
5 tablespoons butter
5 cups Golden Grahams cereal
1 cup chocolate chips

1. Measure out cereal and chocolate chips in bowl together. Measure out mini marshmallows and set aside.
2. In large saucepan, melt unsalted butter over medium-low heat. Once butter is melted, add the mini marshmallows. Stir marshmallows until they're melted. 
3. Remove saucepan from heat and use a spatula to transfer the marshmallow/butter mixture to the bowl with the cereal and chocolate chips. Stir to completely coat cereal with marshmallow mixture. 
4. Pour cereal mixture into greased 8x8 pan. Evenly spread out and pat down with spatula. Let cool, then cut into squares and enjoy.
*Note-next time I make these I might try adding the chocolate chips after I have coated cereal with marshmallow/butter mixture so that they don't melt as much. But they were still a big hit following the directions above.

Of course these are great for occasions besides a tailgate. They are perfect anytime you need a quick, easy, delicious dessert to take somewhere!
