- 5 tablespoons butter
- 4 cups mini marshmallows
- 1 cup ultra-mini marshmallows (or chopped mini marshmallows)
- 5 cups crisp rice cereal
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Melt the butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add the 4 cups of mini marshmallows and stir until melted. Add the milk and vanilla, and stir constantly for about 1 minute.
Remove the marshmallow mixture from heat. Add the cereal. Stir with a greased wooden spoon until the cereal is well coated in the marshmallow mixture. Add the ultra-mini marshmallows and stir quickly to mix them in.
Spray your hands with cooking oil. Pour the mixture into a greased 13X9 pan, and use your fingertips to press the mixture evenly and firmly into the pan.
Let cool for about 30 minutes. Make 3 cuts lengthwise, and 5 cuts on the width.
