Happy National Cereal Day! How do I celebrate cereal?!? I add marshmallows and butter! This is my simple rice krispie treat recipe. Nothing over the top except I think you need to start with large marshmallows and then add smaller ones at the end. Gooey and a complete guarantee that you (and family, if you share) will finish the pan in one day. You will notice in the picture that there are little marshmallow pillows of goodness waiting on you. The secret is adding minis after you have made you initial mixture. Trust me! Happiness in a little square of cereal! Happy National Cereal Day! Celebrate the appropriate way! Looking Forward, Amanda
5 T butter (extra for buttering pan)
8 cups of LARGE marshmallows, plus 2 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispie Cereal
Butter your 12×9 pan, set aside.
On very low heat, in a large pan, melt butter. Once butter in melted add 8 cups of large marshmallows, stirring constantly.
Once the marshmallows are melted, remove from heat and stir in your cereal until coated in marshmallow mixture. Now stir in 2 cups of mini marshmallows.
Pour mixture into prepared pan and press in evenly. I use wax paper to help me press down the mixture so that it does not stick to my hands or spoon.
Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
