  • 8 tablespoons butter (1 stick)

  2. Melt butter over low heat in a large pan.

  3. Add marshmallows to melted butter and stir over low heat until melted. Remove pan from heat. Stir in vanilla extract.

  4. Stir in rice cereal and gently coat cereal with marshmallow mixture.

  5. Pour rice mixture into prepared pan. With buttered fingers press the mixture flat.
