Rice Crispy Treats, Only Better
You Will Need:
1 box fudge brownie mix (and the oil, eggs and water needed to make it according to box directions.)
40 strawberry marshmallows
3 Tablespoons butter
5 cups rice crispy cereal
handful of mini marshmallows or chopped strawberry marshmallows
Make brownies according to box directions for a 9X13" pan. Be sure to cover the pan in parchment paper first with extra hanging over the edge for easy removal of your treats!
Melt butter and 40 marshmallows over med-low heat. When completely smooth and melted mix with 5 cups cereal. Keep warm.
When brownies have 2 minutes left sprinkle mini marshmallows (or bits) over brownies. Finish baking.
Remove from the oven and spread now soft marshmallows over the top of the brownies. It doesn't have to be perfect or pretty, this just helps the top layer stick extra well :)
Cover your hands with butter and spread the cereal treats across the top of the brownies. BE CAREFUL not to touch the sides of the brownie pan, it is still HOT!
Press the cereal treats down well and let cool completely.
For the peanut butter version use regular marshmallows and add 1/2 cup peanut butter to the melted marshmallow mixture before mixing with the cereal.
