Cost: $5


  • 4 TBSP Salted Butter (and a bit more to grease the pan)
  • 16 oz Bag of Mini Marshmallows
  • 8 Cups Crispy Rice Cereal
  • 1-2 oz Sprinkles (optional)


  • Grease your pan with a little bit of butter.
  • Melt Butter in a large microwave safe bowl. Add mini marshmallows and heat in the microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir mixture together and heat for an additional minute if all marshmallows are not melted.
  • Stir in cereal and scoop into prepared pan.
  • Wet hands slightly and press evenly into pan.
  • Gently spread sprinkles onto the top and let set for at least an hour. If you are in a hurry, you can place into the freezer for about 20 minutes.
  • Cut into squares and serve! Can be stored tightly covered on the counter for up 3 days. If they last that long!


Margarine or Unsalted Butter can be substituted for butter, but salted butter will make these squares taste significantly better.
The amount of cereal is a suggestion. You can increase or decrease the amount according to your liking.
