- 8 tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter
- 20 ounces mini marshmallows (about 11 cups), divided
- 1 (11-ounce) bag caramel bits
- 8 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 2 tsp kosher salt
1Spray a 9″x13″ baking dish with non-stick spray.
2Melt butter in a large ( 8 quart) pot over medium-low heat. Once butter is completely melted, add 7 cups of marshmallows and the caramel bits. Stir to combine. Stir occasionally until the marshmallows, and caramels melt completely.
3Once the mixture is smooth and combined, add the cereal and salt. Stir to combine. Add the remaining 4 cups marshmallows. Stir until combined.
4Scoop into your prepared baking dish. Gently press into your baking pan. The more you press them down, the denser they become. I love light and airy, ooey-gooey treats. So, press gently.
5Cut treats and serve. Enjoy!
