For a no-bake treat just right for lunchboxes or after school, try this fun twist on a childhood favorite that goes beyond the usual "Snap, Crackle, and Pop" blueprint and plays with other great combinations found in the cereal aisle. Each of the four variations uses the same marshmallow base—whether you want to use the mix-ins to take it in a chocolatey, tropical, or fruity direction is entirely up to you!
