  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 10.5 ounce bag of mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 1/2 to 6 cups Special K


  • Line a 9 inch square pan with nonstick foil. Alternatively, line with regular foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • In a large (3 quart), preferably non-stick saucepan or a slightly larger pot, melt the butter over medium heat. When it's about halfway melted, add the salt and swirl it around.
  • Add the marshmallows and stir over medium heat until they're about halfway melted, then reduce heat slightly and continue stirring until they are fully melted.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Add the cereal (it will seem like a lot) and stir until fully mixed, then press into the pan and let cool completely.
  • Lift from pan and cut into squares.


If you use salted butter, omit the salt.
If you like a gooey and less stiff bar, use 5 cups of cereal instead of 6.
