4cupsminiature marshmallowsor about 40 large marshmallows, 10 ounce package
Non-stick cooking spray
In a large bowl, add both types of cereal. Set aside.
To a microwavable medium size glass bowl, add the marshmallows and butter.
Heat the marshmallows and butter in the microwave just enough so that the marshmallows and butter start to melt (about 2 minutes). Stir the marshmallows and butter together until smooth.
Add the marshmallow mixture to the bowl of cereal and gently stir all ingredients together until the cereal is coated.
Coat a casserole dish or pan (13 x 9 x 2 inch pan) with non-stick cooking spray and then add the marshmallow and cereal mixture to it.
Use a buttered spatula, wax paper, or add water to your hands to gently press the mixture evenly into the pan. Let cool.
Cut into squares and serve. Or see more options below.
Add Candy Sprinkle Toppings - for added color, top the squares with candy sprinkles; put the candy sprinkles in a small shallow bowl, lay one krispie square at a time in the candy sprinkles and press down slightly so that the candies will stick to the top.
Making Krispie Lollipops - just after mixing the cereal with the marshmallow mixture, wet your hands and roll the cereal and marshmallow mixture into balls (about the size of a golf ball or slightly bigger).
Set the balls on parchment paper and let cool. Then add a lollipop stick to each ball, and dip them into candy toppings.
