  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispie cereal


  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan on low heat. Add marshmallows and stir the two together until they’re completely melted.
  2. Mix in the cereal. You’ll want to do this quickly, because the marshmallow mix might harden up. It will take about five minutes to mix it completely.
  3. Put the Rice Krispie mixture into a pan. Use a buttered spatula or parchment paper to mash it into shape. Make sure that it’s even and flat.
  4. Cut into whatever size pieces you want. You can use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Make sure that when you’re done you wrap them up so they don’t get stale.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
