  • Premeasure all ingredients before you begin cooking and line a 9x13-inch baking sheet with parchment paper and coat with non-stick spray; set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, melt the butter, salt, and 8 cups of marshmallows together until smooth.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Followed but the remaining 2 cups of marshmallows and the cereals until fully coated.
  • Gently and quickly fold in the M&Ms and sprinkles then transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish.
  • Top with extra M&M’s and sprinkles, if desired, and use parchment paper or greased hands to gently press the mixture into the pan.
  • Allow to set for 30 minutes before removing from the pan and cutting into squares.


  • Salted butter may also be used.
  • Corn chex may be used in place of rice chex, but I wouldn’t use wheat chex.
  • Don’t add the M&M’s in too soon or the color will bleed throughout the mixture.
  • Don’t press too hard on the mixture or it will make them tough and hard.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks at room temperature.
