Ingredients

  • 5 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispies Cereal with Red & Blue Krispies
  • 4 tablespoons European-style salted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 10 ounces marshmallows

Instructions

  • Butter the inside of a large mixing bowl (or spray with cooking spray) and pour in the cereal. Set aside.
  • Begin to melt the butter in a medium-large saucepan set over low heat on the stove.
  • Add the marshmallows and stir, occasionally until about 75% of the marshmallows are melted.
  • Remove from the heat and continue to stir, smashing the marshmallows with the spatula or spoon, until melted and smooth.
  • Pour over the cereal.
  • Allow the cereal to cool slightly.
  • Butter your hands well and then butter the inside of a 2 1/2 to 3 inch star shaped cookie cutter.
  • Gently press the cereal mixture into the cookie cutter filling in all 5 points.
  • Once the cutter is completely full then push on the cereal treat, allowing it to slide out of the cutter.
  • Repeat, creating as many star shaped treats as you are able.

Notes

This recipe will make approximately 14 stars if you use a 2 3/4 inch cookie cutter.
