fruit loop rice krispie wquares

2 tbs butter
1 tsp vanilla
400g pkg marshmallows
3 cups Fruit Loops cereal
3 cups Rice Krispies cereal
½ cup mini M&Ms

In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla then fold in cereal using a stiff wooden spoon, until evenly incorporated in the melted marshmallow. Fold in mini M&Ms. Press into a 8x8-inch baking pan that’s been either greased or lined with parchment paper. Let cool before cutting. Turn out pan and cut into 9 squares or 18 triangles using a sharp chef’s knife (buttering the knife, or running it under hot water after each cut will help the knife to cut through the squares without getting sticky).

For fun with the kids, try pressing the Rice Krispie mixture into several animal-shaped cookie cutters.
