  • ¼ cup Butter salted
  • 14 oz Mini Marshmallows or 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 6 cups Cocoa Rice Krispies Cereal


  • Coat the inside of a 9" x 13" baking dish with butter, then set aside.
  • In a large dutch oven pot, melt the butter on medium heat.  Once melted, add the mini marshmallows and stir until the marshmallows are almost completely melted.  Turn the heat off and stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Add the Cocoa Rice Krispies and mix gently using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until combined.
  • Transfer the cereal mixture into the prepared baking dish.  Using the back of a spoon, spread the mixture evenly into the dish, then either wet or spray your hands with nonstick cooking spray and pat down the Rice Krispies treats.
  • Cool for about 20 minutes, or until they hold their shape, then cut into 3" squares. Enjoy!
