– 4 Tablespoons butter, unsalted – 1 10-ounce bag mini-marshmallows (or 40 regular size) – 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – ½ teaspoon salt – 1 cup M&M's

Ingredients Needed

Grease a 9"x13" baking dish with non-stick cooking spray or line with parchment paper.

Recipe Instructions

In a large saucepan, melt better over low heat until melted. Add mini-marshmallows; stir until completely melted and incorporated into butter.

Recipe Instructions

Add the cereal, vanilla extract, and salt, and stir until mixed thoroughly. Let stand to cool for 3-4 minutes.

Recipe Instructions

Stir in M&M's, working quickly (M&M's shouldn't melt at this point, but if they do, it's fine.)

Recipe Instructions

Transfer mixture into prepared baking dish  and press down gently using parchment paper or wax paper (or spray your  hands lightly with non-stick cooking spray).

Recipe Instructions

Let the treats cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting and serving. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Recipe Instructions

* Melt butter and marshmallows over low heat. This helps to avoid your treats becoming hard. We want soft and chewy squares. * This recipe uses a 9"x13" pan. However, you can halve the recipe and use an 8"x8" pan as well.
