Continue stirring occasionally until most of the marshmallows have melted.
Remove from heat and continue to stir until completely melted.
Pour the cereal into a well buttered mixing bowl.
Pour the marshmallows over top and fold into the cereal.
Allow the cereal to cool until you can easily handle it.
Butter your hands and the inside of a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter.

We suggest using Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows in this recipe. If you use a store brand marshmallow, they may be denser and stickier. You might want to adjust the recipe by reducing the marshmallows by 1 cup or increasing the cereal by 1 cup.
