Servings: 6


  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
  • 1 10oz. Pkg. mini marshmallows
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 cups rice cereal


  • Add the butter and marshmallows to a deep pot and stir over medium heat until melted together and smooth.
  • Stir in vanilla and brown sugar until combined.
  • Remove mixture from heat. Pour in rice cereal and stir until it all comes together and all the cereal is coated.
  • Spread the mixture into a greased baking dish of your choice (smaller dishes will mean thicker treats, longer cooling time).
  • Let the treats cool completely. Then cut into squares.
