- 2 tbsp butter
- 4 cups miniature marshmallows, or 40 regular marshmallows (10 ounces)
- 6 cups crispy rice cereal
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Melt butter over a low heat in a large, heavy saucepan. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Add crispy rice cereal and stir until well coated. Remove from heat, then transfer rice mixture into the baking pan using a spatula, and press into the pan. If the rice sticks to the spatula, try pressing down using parchment paper.
Allow the crispy rice to cool, then use holiday-themed cookie cutters to make shapes. Alternatively, cut into 20 squares. Decorate with colored food gel pens and sprinkles.
