Because I thought the same thing. Before attempting to make these, I was brainstorming ideas what else I could possibly add to these bars to bring them over the top.

Total time: 10 minutes
Servings: 12

  1. Thoroughly grease an 8-x-8-inch baking pan.
  2. Pour cereal into a large bowl. In a mid-sized saucepan over medium heat, brown the butter. Keep your eye on it while stirring frequently. As soon as the butter turns slightly brown, turn off the heat and add marshmallows to the pot. Stir until melted and thoroughly combined. Add salt.
  3. Pour marshmallow mixture over the cereal and combine until fully incorporated. Press into the prepared baking pan. Let cool and cut into squares.
