Butter a 13 x 9″ baking pan.
Melt margarine or butter in large saucepan over low heat, add marshmallows, stirring constantly until melted. Remove from heat, and add cereal stirring until evenly coated, mix in the candied fruit and then press into prepared pan using back of buttered spoon or waxed paper. Let cool and then cut into squares or cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters.
Time saver: Microwave butter and marshmallows in large microwave-safe bowl on high 2 minutes, stirring every minute, add cereal and coat evenly, mix in the candied fruit, and press into prepared pan as stated above.
Microwave cooking times may vary.
NOTE: Save some of the cherries and/or pineapple to decorate the tops of each, for a festive look.
