Too Tasty to be Healthy?

Stand back rice krispie, there's a new snack in town!

Grab-And-Go Squares by Company's Coming (my all-time favorite cookbooks), is a fast, easy, 4 ingredient snack that your kids will never know is healthy for them.

These squares are a sweet, gooey blend of crunchy cereal and chewy dried fruit. Wrap individual squares tightly with plastic wrap, and they're ready to go! Perfect for lunches or a quick car snack.

What you Need;

6 cups - Raisin bran cereal, coarsely crushed
1/2 cup - Chopped dried apricot

1/4 cup - Hard margarine (or butter)
9 oz - Package of miniature marshmallows (250 grams)

Combine cereal and apricot in extra-large bowl.

Melt margarine in large saucepan on medium. Add marshmallows. Heat and stir until smooth. Pour over cereal mixture. Stir until coated. Press in greased 9 x 13 inch (22 x 33 cm) pan. Chill until firm. Cuts into 15 squares.
