Special Note: The 1941 original rice cereal recipe called for 1/4 c. butter and 5 c. cereal. Over the years they changed it to 3 T. butter and 6 c. cereal. (I guess to make it healthier??) I find that when you use the new recipe the treats are dry and tend to fall apart. I stick with the old original recipe! Hint- try adding a dash of salt or vanilla for great flavor.

How to Make Marshmallow Treats

Step-by-Step

  1. Microwave butter with marshmallows on high setting for 3 minutes. Stirring after 2 minutes. Stir in cereal, mixing until well coated. Note: You must work fast or it starts to set.
  2. Using a buttered spatula, press the mixture evenly into a 13x9x2 inch pan which has been buttered or sprayed with nonstick spray or lined with parchment/wax paper.
  3. Cut into squares when the mixture cools. Makes 12 large squares.
  4. Hint: Just before adding the cereal to the mix, you may add a dash or two of salt and/or a tablespoon of vanilla extract.
