Slowly melt the butter in a large pan on low heat.

Once butter is melted, add the vanilla and marshmallows. Melt the marshmallows slowly but not fully melted. We want a few lumps.

Add the milk and stir to combine.

Add the Rice Krispie Cereal. Stir until the cereal is fully coated with the marshmallow mixture.

      Hi, I used large marshmallows. For small marshmallows, it would be about 2 3/4 cups. Let me know how they turn out for you. Thanks for your question!

      Hi teachermrw, yes you could use an 8 x 8 pan. The treats will be a bit less thick/tall. Enjoy!
