Cheerio treats

Tomorrow Brendan will be introduced to the lameness that is school celebrations for summer birthday kids.  I remember it well from my childhood.  Sometimes it was on your half-birthday, like this preschool, sometimes there was one catch-all "special day" for all the summer babies, and sometimes we were just ignored. 

They ask us not to bring in cake or cookies on birthdays because they try to have the snacks be somewhat healthy, and with 16 kids that would be a lot of sweets throughout the year.  So I took the usual Wednesday snack (Cheerios and raisins) and jazzed it up.

6 cups minimarshmallows
1/2 cup butter
1 cup chocolate chips
6 cups Multi Grain Cheerios
1 cup Craisins

Melt marshmallows, butter, and chocolate chips in the microwave for 90 seconds.  Mix in Cheerios and Craisins.  Wet hands, roll into balls and put on wax paper.  Let cool then devour.
