  • 6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal or other crispy rice cereal
  • 5 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 16 ounce package large marshmallows
  • 2 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste or pure vanilla extract
  1. Pour the cereal into a large mixing bowl and set aside.
  2. Over medium heat, add the butter to a large saucepan and melt.
  3. Add the large marshmallows to the pot and stir to combine with the butter. Continue to stir until the marshmallows have melted and are smooth.
  4. Add the mini marshmallows to the pot and stir until they melt but are still visible.
  5. Turn off the heat and stir in the vanilla bean paste.
  6. Pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal and stir to combine.
  7. Pour the cereal mixture into a 13x9 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Press the mixture into an even layer with your hands coated in butter or cooking spray to prevent sticking.

  9. Cut the Krispie treats into squares and serve immediately or transfer to an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 5 days.
