  • 3/4 cup Butter Unsalted
  • 2 bags Mini marshmallows 10 oz. bags
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 8.5-9 cups Rice Krispie cereal Or any other brand of crispy rice cereal


  • Heat a large nonstick pot over medium-low heat.
  • Add butter and let it melt.
  • Once it has fully melted, add marshmallows. Keep 1 cup marshmallows aside!
  • Keep stirring gently until marshmallows are melted. 
  • Remove from heat and mix in vanilla extract.
  • Then, add cereal and remaining marshmallows and mix gently until fully coated. You will have little chunks of partially melted marshmallows. That's perfectly normal!
  • Dump this mixture on a baking tray (Dimensions: 9x13), lined with wax paper that's been lightly sprayed with oil. 
  • Spread the mixture evenly in the tray with a spatula. Gently press it down with the back of a spatula but don't use too much force. Also, be sure to grease the spatula so that it doesn't stick to the ooey gooey cereal mixture.
  • Let it cool at room temperature for 45 minutes- 1 hour. 
  • Then, use a sharp knife to cut square pieces. Enjoy!


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container at room temperature for up to 3 days. Make sure the square pieces are layered between sheets of wax paper so they don't stick together.
