  • 8 ounces Land O Lakes® Unsalted Butter plus more for buttering parchment
  • 2 10-ounce bags marshmallows
  • 10 cups crispy rice cereal
  • Flaky sea salt (optional but heavily encouraged)


  • Line a 9x9 or 9x13 baking sheet pan with parchment paper. (9x9 will result in a thicker treat, 9x13 will be slightly more thin)
  • In a large pot, melt the butter over medium-low heat. It will melt first, and then foam. After it foams, it will start to turn brown and smell nutty. Watch closely and stir often.
  • As SOON as the butter is golden brown, stir in marshmallows. Melt and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  • Turn off heat, add cereal and mix carefully. Pour into the prepared pan and press down lightly. Sprinkle with flaky salt to finish. Let cool and cut into squares or bars.
