Nature Nuts Chewy Bars


I work at a nature camp, as a counselor for the 4 and 5 year olds, or "Nature Nuts". We whipped these bars up one rainy day using whatever we had in the fridge, and they turned out surprisingly well. The chocolate-covered raisins really seem to add something.

2 dozen


  • 1 (10.5 ounce) package marshmallows

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 2 cups chocolate covered raisins

  • 5 ¾ ounces toasted oat cereal


  1. Melt marshmallows, butter, and raisins together over medium heat, stirring until smooth.

  2. Mix in cereal until coated. Scrape the mixture into a greased pan and let chill. (We popped them into the freezer for a few minutes to hurry it up, because the kids just couldn't wait.)
