Thor-Sized Cereal Power Bars

As a small digression from my standard format here, I made these Thor-sized cereal bars in an effort to bribe Thor into becoming an icon for cultural awareness. I just want to see a children’s book or Archie-style comic entitled “Thor Learns about Cereal” or “Thor Learns Proper, Earth-Bound Coffee Refill Protocol” – something harkening to the beauty in our differences and hilarity in absurdly ripped men from a heavenly realm discovering the miracle of mortal breakfast foods.

Cereal is a fiber-packed staple for those surrounding the Norse god’s Earthly adventures – at least in the Jane Foster camp. Packed in her trailer and eaten in lieu of other sweets in her more emotional and Thor-missing moments, cereal seems to mean a lot to this scientist and her god. Or at the very least (in cereal-marketing speak) start their mornings off right, keep them going throughout the day, as well as going regularly!

These cereal bars add your breakfast cereal of choice to the original Rice Krispie treat recipe – following that time-tested, easy-to-make formula. You can cut them into any shape or size you find convenient for packing on-the-go on your way about the realms. And do, in fact, deliver sugary, peanut-buttery energy just when you need it (like during your Marvel movie binge watching fest, so as to be properly prepared for everything forthcoming). I just hope Phase Three allows Thor time to continue on his culinary journey.

 
INGREDIENTS

2 ½ tablespoons butter
½ cup peanut butter
1 package marshmallows
6 cups cereal of your choice! I used Crispix, because I’m obsessed with Crispix, but Chex (in any fun flavor) would work wonderfully for the completely GF crowd. Be sure to check your labels.


DIRECTIONS

1. Grease a medium pan and set aside.
2. In a large pot, melt butter over low stovetop heat.
3. Stir in peanut butter.
4. Mix until melted and creamy.
5. Pour in marshmallows.
(Life Hack: spray your stirring utensil and later whatever you use to compact the mixture into the pan with cooking spray to help lessen stickage.)
6. Turn off heat when marshmallows are almost completely melted. (You may still see small marshmallow lumps.)
7. Stir until smooth.
8. Slowly fold in cereal and mix until evenly coated.
9. Turn the mixture out into your greased pan and spread evenly.
10. Let cool, then cut into any size or shape you find convenient for your travels about the realms.

In addition and as a special treat for Thor fans, the good folks at the Writers Guild Foundation provided Fanboy Comics with a photo of their recently garnered Thor and Thor: The Dark World scripts, which may be viewed at their library in Los Angeles, CA!
