Cooking spray

6 tablespoons coconut oil, plus more for your hands

1 10-ounce bag marshmallows

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 7-ounce bag rippled potato chips, lightly crushed (about 5 cups)

3 cups sweetened cereal

3/4 cup freeze-dried strawberries, finely crushed


  1. Line a 9-inch square baking dish with foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang on two sides; coat with cooking spray. Melt the coconut oil in a large wide pot over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and cook, stirring occasionally, until melted, about 4 minutes. Stir in the vanilla.
  2. Add the potato chips, cereal and freeze-dried strawberries to the pot and stir to coat. Spread the mixture in the prepared pan and press firmly and evenly with oiled hands. Let cool completely, at least 1 hour.
  3. Lift the bars out of the pan using the foil overhang; discard the foil. Cut into squares.

Cook’s Note

We used Honey Nut Cheerios and Kix cereal. You can also try fruity ones, like Froot Loops or Trix.
