Prep Time20 minutes
Total Time30 minutes

Ingredients:

6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 10.5-ounce packages Campfire® Mini Marshmallows, divided use
9 cups crisped rice cereal
1/3 cup sprinkles

For the Buttercream
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1-3 teaspoons milk

Directions:

Line a 9 x 9-inch baking pan with parchment paper or foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

In large pan, melt butter over low heat. Set aside 1 1/2 cups marshmallows. Add the rest of the marshmallows to the pan and stir until completely melted.

Gradually add crisped rice cereal; stirring until well coated. Fold in the reserved 1 1/2 cups of marshmallows and sprinkles until thoroughly incorporated.

Using a buttered spatula or clean hands to firmly press the mixture into the prepared pan. Cool completely.

For the Buttercream

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter on medium-high speed for about 5 minutes.

With the mixer on low speed, slowly add in powdered sugar, and continue beating until well blended.

Add in vanilla, and 1 teaspoon of milk. Mix on low speed until incorporated.

Beat at high speed until frosting is smooth and fluffy; about 4-5 more minutes. If your frosting is too thick, gradually add a little more milk, 1 teaspoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency.

Spread or pipe frosting onto cooled marshmallow cereal treats and top with festive sprinkles.

I cut these Birthday Marshmallow Cereal Treats into 9 large pieces. I then piped the buttercream in a zig-zag pattern using a Wilton 2a piping tip.

If you want the bars to be thinner, I’d suggest using a 9 x 13-inch pan instead of a 9 x 9-inch pan.
