Recipe: Christmas Marshmallow Treats for Preschoolers Featuring Alpha-Bits #Sponsored

This is a sponsored post written in conjunction with Post Alpha-Bits Cereal and a campaign for Sverve. Regardless, all opinions expressed are still 100% my own.


It’s time for another adorable Christmas recipe. I made these up yesterday and I’m ashamed to say I ate about 1/4 of the pan of them. These are perfect for your kids with the fun letters of the Alpha-Bits cereal. They are perfect to take to your little one’s Christmas party too! They are SURE to be a hit! I know I sure wasn’t disappointed!

3 Tablespoons of Butter
1 10.5 oz bag of marshmallows (I used the minis)
6 cups of cereal
1/2 cup of green & red chocolate chips


Pour your cereal into a very large bowl, you’ll need plenty of room for mixing.
Melt your butter in a sauce pan with the marshmallows.
Continuously stir until all is melted completely.

Pour your marshmallow mixture into your cereal and start mixing, thoroughly.
Pour into a slightly greased cake pan, and press down.

Tip: I used a plastic baggie over my hand as a glove sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

Immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips, and press down again.
Wait for them to cool completely and then cut into squares.

So many people nowadays prefer something homemade as a gift! Thanks for the recipe! I really do appreciate it! Thanks again, Michele 🙂

  57. Kayla Britton-Goldsmith says:

    That is a really cute Christmas treat! You could do it for Easter, Halloween, 4th of July…. I have some shopping to do, I think, lol!

  58. Sherrie C. says:

    What a fun idea and they look pretty yummy too! One of these days when I have the grandkids over I will have to make these. Thanks 🙂

  59. I wonder if I could make this without milk products.

  60. Sandra Roll says:

    What a truly amazing watch I incorporate school in a fun holiday treat. They could write down how many letters they see before they 31st them and the one with the most could win a prize like a pencil.

  61. Brandy White Buneta says:

    I would love to try this recipe but its really hard to find marshmallows with out pig gelatin. I have never tried marshmallow treats with any other cereal but rice crispies

  62. Jennifer Heintz says:

    What a nice change from krispies treats, which my grandkids love. Even without the red and green chocolate, they would still be delicious. A treat for any reason, not just Christmas.

  63. Thank you so much for all the great recipes! My kid loves these treats!

  64. I love the idea of this recipe for Christmas. I would love to make this with my niece. She would really enjoy that.

  65. Thank you for the recipe! I never used Alpha Bits to make these before. This is something my whole family would love 🙂

  66. I love the idea of using Alpha Bits instead of Rice Krispies. It makes me feel like maybe they’ll learn something while they get to curb their sweet tooth.

  67. Thank you for your recipe. We are having christmas dinner for our kids and grandkids so I want to give this recipe a try.

  68. Be prepare for a sugar rush LOL.

  69. Jennifer Alford says:

    i am so gonna make these for my daughter, she will love them as well as im going to love them i know <3 thank you forwritting about it

  70. I’ve never made rice krispies with any other kind of cereal and this looks great.

  71. Cathy Jarolin says:

    Its amazing to me all then different variations of the original rice crispy treats there are! The one you shared is a very cute recipe. The alphabet cereal and the red and green chocolate chips! So festive. ( I didn’t know they had red and green chocolate chips) Lol!! I learned something new and I like that!!

  72. These are a super cute idea and would be so much fun to make with my grand kids. 🙂

  81. WOW – great idea using Alpha Bits! I would never have thought to use them!! I would try to create a treat spelIing out a child’s name or initials. I love the snowman picture. I will have to pass this on to my daughters. They love to cook & try different creative recipes.

  83. Jessica Haynes says:

    Great idea the kids will love. I can change the chips colors to suit the occassion.

  105. Deb E (@debbieeland) says:

    I wish they made gluten free Alphabet cereal. I need to stick to the gluten free rice cereal. I love the idea though. Very clever.

  107. I’ve never seen this recipe before and it looks so good ! Wish I had everything right now. We are going to see our granddaughters (3 and 1yr) this weekend and this would have been nice to take along.

  113. These would be really fun. I love how they look, with it being letters instead of the usual krispie.

  114. David Fultner says:

    This would be great for my nephew. I love the creativity.

  115. Such an easy recipe, and easy to mix and match with the holidays just by using different seasonal chips.

  116. Edna Williams says:

    This looks cute! How fun and great! Thanks for sharing!

  117. clojo9372 says:

    I’m with you, sister! I love marshmallows and all of their gooey sugary loveliness. I probably would have eaten half the pan if I had the chance to! LOL 😉 This looks like a great dessert snack, but it would be too dangerous for someone like me… hehehe…
