Slimming World Marshmallow Bars
We all like to have a treat as a snack, something before lunch, after lunch or when we need that kick in the afternoon. Snacking on shop-bought snacks can work out expensive and half the time it is full of calories and bad stuff, then you feel guilty for falling off plan.
Now there is a solution with making your own low syn marshmallow bars. These are like the ever so popular rice crispy square, however, there are two major differences, the first is that these are made with the Aldi version of Cheerio’s called Harvest Morn Hoops. I know that this is a low syn cereal bar, the ideal snack for the whole family.

Recipe for Marshmallow Treat Bars
Slimming World Low Syn Marshmallow Bars
- 80 g Harvest Morn Hoops
- 80 g Sugar Free marshmallows
- Weight out the marshmallows. Put into a microwavable glass bowl.
- Heat the marshmallows in a microwave for 10 – 15 seconds.
- Once melted, give it a stir. Use a silicone spatula, as it makes the molten marshmallow easier to work with and the next stage. If the marshmallows are not 100% melted, put them back in the microwave for a few seconds at a time.
- Add the Hoops to the molten marshmallows and mix until all combined. You will need to do this quickly, as the marshmallow will stiffen as it cools. If you need to, return the mix to the microwave for 5 seconds at a time, to loosen the mixture up.
- Make sure the picture is in a glass bowl, flatten out. Then cover with clingfilm and place in the fridge until to set.
- Once set, remove from the fridge, cut into 8 slices and enjoy.
