Looking for a scrumptious, guilt-free treat?
This one is so easy your honey could whip it up for you for Valentine's Day!
2 1/2 cups cocoa-flavored sweetened rice cereal
6 whole low-fat honey graham crackers
3 tablespoons margarine
1 tablespoon sucralose-brown sugar blend
3 1/2 cups mini marshmallows, divided
1 square (1 ounce) semisweet or milk chocolate, melted (optional)
1. Spray a 9-inch square pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place cereal in large bowl. Crumble graham crackers into 1/4-inch pieces and add to bowl. Toss to combine.
2. Combine margarine and brown sugar in large microwavable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 25-30 seconds or until margarine is melted. Add 2 1/2 cups marshmallows; microwave on HIGH 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until marshmallows are melted, stirring after 1 minute. Stir until mixture is smooth.
3. Add marshmallow mixture to cereal mixture; stir to coat. Add remaining 1 cup marshmallows; stir until blended. Press evenly into prepared pan using waxed paper (or a greased spatula). Cool completely. Drizzle with chocolate, if desired. Cut into squares.

NOTE: I used regular brown sugar. I try to steer clear of artificial sweeteners. Also, I only had an 8x8 pan to use, which made them a little thicker.
This recipe is definitely worth saving calories for! My husband devoured his!
