These Cap’n Crunch marshmallow krispies are made the same way as traditional crispy treats, and I like mine with extra marshmallows so I did the same these for these Cap’n Crunch treats. For these treats you just need mini marshmallows, butter (or margarine) and of course Cap’n Crunch cereal.
I like mine with Cap’n Crunch with berries, but you could do the regular without berries or Oops all berries too.
First, you’ll add your marshmallows and butter to a large sauce pan over medium high heat and allow them to melt together for a few minutes till nice and gooey. Then you’ll mix in your Cap’n Crunch cereal and a few more mini marshmallows to make the treats extra gooey, sticky and delicious!
These Cap’n Crunch treats are so good! I promise you and your kids will love them too!

Hi, me again. Been using house-brand fruit loops cereal with a big handful of chocolate chips tossed in, getting good reviews 🙂
We don’t buy small bags of marshmallows, as I use them in several recipes. How many cups of marshmallows total for this recipe?
It should be about 6 cups
Thank you for the reply.
Easy to make and delicious! If you follow the recipe it turns out perfect.
I bought the Stars Captain Crunch and will make these today for party at son and daughter in law’s house tomorrow. Love that for a limited time they had stars, real patriotic. Perfect for 4th of July party.
That sounds so fun with those!
Delicious and super easy to make! My family loves these sweet treats!

Do you think my boyfriend will like these or nah? please respond quickly this is very important!!!
I don’t know, I’ll ask him tonight.
Hey there! I have made these on several occasions + they’re always a huge hit! Sweet + marshmallow-y. So good! Thanks for this fun recipe!
There were way too sticky and hard. I think the roof of my mouth is bleeding. I would cut back on the extra marshmallows next time although there probably won’t be a next time.

Sorry they were too hard for you. I know a lot of people have a hard time eating captain crunch cause they eat at your mouth, ive never had that problem, but my husband does. However, if the treats hot too hard its usually because the butter and marshmallows hot cooked too fast or too long. They should turn out to be nice and gooey if you cook them at low temp. Sorry!
Lol dont blame your inability to properly cook delicious treats on the recipe, it’s super easy and the melted butter and marshmallow actually soften the cereal if you do it right
