  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 bag mini marshmallows
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies


  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt marshmallows and butter for 1 minute.
  • Remove from microwave and pour in vanilla. Stir until the mixture is completely smooth.
  • Add 6 cups of rice crispies and stir until the cereal is well coated.
  • Line a 9x13 baking pan with parchment paper and pour the cereal mixture into the pan. Place a piece of parchment paper over the top and press the crispies down into an even layer.
  • Let sit on the counter for an hour or in the fridge for 30 minutes until set.
  • Lift the treats from the pan and slice into 12 pieces.


TIP: Be sure to use fresh marshmallows for the best results! 
TIP: You can make this on the stovetop as well! In large saucepan melt butter over low heat, then add in the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat — it’s important to not overcook! 
TIP: You could add just a dash of salt to help enhance the sweet flavors even more. 
TIP: Don't put too much pressure when pressing down, you don’t need to completely smoosh them! If you’re using your fingers or rubber spatula to press the mixture down, run your hands/spatula under water and shake off the excess before starting. This will help prevent the sticky mixture from clinging to you! You can also spray your hands or spatula with a little bit of cooking spray.
