  • 4 + 1½ cups Mini marshmallows separated
  • ¼ teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 6 cups Gluten-free crispy rice cereal my pick is Nature's Path Organic

Instructions

  • Measure out all ingredients. These rice crispy treats come together quickly so having everything portioned out will help.

  • Add the vanilla extract to the butter-marshmallow mixture. Stir to combine.
  • Pour in the crispy rice cereal and the remaining 1½ cup mini marshmallows. Mix with a greased spatula until everything is fully coated.
  • Pour into a parchment-lined 9x9 baking dish. Using the greased spatula, spread and press the rice crispy mixture into the pan. Be sure to pack them down.
  • Let cool and rest for 30 minutes.
  • Slice into 9 large squares. For 18 smaller pieces, cut in half again. Enjoy!
