    Lennie's Note:

    I can't believe I can't find this here, so I'm posting it. I make these all the time and have done so for a good 20 years. I think I got the recipe from the Rice Krispies box, but when I checked their current microwave recipe, it's not quite the same. These are always chewy and delicious -- and easy!

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/4 cup butter
    • 1 (10 ounce) package large marshmallows (see directions for other quantities)
    • 5 cups crispy rice cereal (like Rice Krispies)


    1. 1
      If you want to use large marshmallows, the recipe says to use an entire 10-oz package, or 40 large marshmallows. I always use 4 cups of miniature marshmallows, however.
    2. 2
      You will need a buttered (I just use nonstick cooking spray though) oblong pan and a large casserole dish with a lid that can go into your microwave. If you use a 13x9 pan your squares will be very flat, so my personal preference is to use a smaller pan so I get thicker squares.
    3. 3
      Place butter in casserole dish and microwave until melted, about a minute or so on High.
    4. 4
      Add marshmallows, stir, and cover. Microwave on High for 2 minutes, remove and stir, then re-cover and microwave for about another minute or so, until marshmallows melt. Stir until well blended.
    5. 5
      Add cereal and stir until well coated. I use a wooden spoon.
    6. 6
      Transfer mixture into prepared pan. Wet your hands a bit under the tap, shake off excess water, then use your hands to flatten cereal mixture into the pan. Dampen hands again if mixture starts to stick.
    7. 7
      Set aside to cool and set up, then cut into squares. Keep covered tightly if you have leftovers.
    8. 8
      Variation: after you add cereal, you can also stir in one cup of chocolate chips or a chocolate candy like M&Ms.
