You’ve had all the rest, now make the best. This upgrade takes just a few minutes more: Let the melted butter get all nutty and brown, and then add salt. Boom.



1 cup
1 tsp
1/2 tsp
2 250-g bag
miniature marshmallows
10 cups
puffed rice cereal


  • LINE a 9×13-in. pan with parchment, leaving overhang on 2 sides.
  • MELT butter in a large pot over medium-high. Stir as butter foams up, then becomes nutty brown, 5 to 6 min.
  • REDUCE heat to low, then quickly add vanilla, salt and marshmallows, stirring until completely melted. Remove from heat and stir in cereal until well-coated.
  • PRESS into prepared pan and let cool at least 1 hour. Cut into squares.

Kitchen tip: This recipe is easily halved. Press into an 8-in. pan or stick with a 9×13-in. pan for thinner squares.

Kitchen tip: Use wet hands or a wet spatula to press mixture into pan to prevent sticking. Use the bottom of a measuring cup to evenly press the squares.
