Just made FROOTCAKE.

Which is one big rice krispy treat, but done with Froot Loops. In a loaf pan. Could be worse, could be fruitcake.

I did - as much to test the new pan out as anything.

> is it tasty?

Too much so - I've already eaten more of it than I care to admit. Tasty doesn't really capture it. It's crunchy and sweet, which you'd imagine. Given that it's in loaf shape, I've sliced off half inch pieces, which resemble a serving of pound cake or fruitcake, but here just make the experience of eating it much more enjoyable. I suppose that I didn't enjoy the uber-chewy rice crispy (krispie? I don't know how to spell it to properly abuse their trademark.) treats, so having thinly sliced sections seems to work well for me. If that's not your thing, by all means cut them as thick as you like.

> recipe please.

Of course. I knew I wanted to start from the Rice Crispie Treat base recipe, so as I was in the grocery store, I jotted down some notes from the side of a box of Rice Krispies. Oh, look - I just found an official source: here.

I thought that maybe since I was using Froot Loops, which are larger, and don't pack as well, I'd cut the amount of cereal down. That worked well, as it fit just about exactly into my loaf pan. Oh, and when I was shopping for Froot Loops, I found that they're selling low sugar versions now. Since you're coating them with marshmallows, that seems like a wash.

5c Froot Loops (low sugar, if you like)
3 tbsp butter
10oz (1 pkg) miniature marshmallows

Melt butter and marshmallows together (in a double boiler, if you can). Stir in Froot Loops. Stir to coat the cereal. Pour into loaf pan. (If you're not using a silicone loaf pan, I strongly recommend doing a good non-stick job on the pan, as marshmallows stick to stuff.) Chill overnight.
