O what a wonderful patriotic treat!

makes 24 (I made a 1/2 batch as to not have so many leftovers :))
ingredients:
1/2 cup dried cranberries (the RED)
Cherrios or Trader Joe's O's or any toasted oat cereal - 6 cups (the WHITE)
10 ounces of mini marshmallows (the WHITE)
1/2 cup dried blueberries (the BLUE)
1/4 stick of butter
directions:
1. Spray a 10-by-15-inch rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Line with waxed paper; spray paper with cooking spray, and set aside.
2. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add marshmallows; cook, stirring occasionally, until marshmallows have melted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in cereal, dried cranberries and dried blueberries.
3. Immediately transfer mixture to prepared baking sheet. Using a spatula (or your fingers) coated with cooking spray, press in quickly and firmly. Let cool, about 1 hour; cut into 24 bars (3 rows lengthwise by 8 rows crosswise). Store in an airtight container up to 2 days.
