  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1 16 oz. package marshmallows regular or miniature sized
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal


  • Grease a 9x13" casserole dish with some extra butter.
  • In a large stockpot, melt the 3 tbsp of butter.
  • Add in the marshmallows. Continue to stir until the marshmallows are completely melted with the butter and create a fluff consistency—about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Pour in all six cups of the Rice Krispies cereal. Stir to combine.
  • Dump the Rice Krispies mixture into the casserole dish. Press it down with the pack of a sturdy spoon or spatula. Sometimes it's even easier to press them down with clean hands.
  • Sprinkle on any toppings you may desire—sprinkles, candy, you name it.
