Incredible Cinnamon Bun Marshmallow Rice Krispie Bars

Cinnamon Bun Rice Krispie Bars - Incredibly good!

This is one of those recipes that I should take the time to pretend I'm a photographer, set up a food photo-shoot and get a picture that will do these bars justice.  However, you are lucky I even snapped a picture.  Last night was one of those nights when our family had half the pan gone before I said, "Oh shoot!  I should have taken a picture!"  and quickly ran to grab the camera.  I put 2 small bars down in front of me on the placemat where I was sitting, took a quick image and then gobbled them up.

These Rice Krispie Bars are made with a product I picked up on a whim at the store.  Jet Puffed brand Cinnamon Bun marshmallows.  The ironic thing is...  I don't like Cinnamon Buns!  But they smelled so vanilla-ee and cinnamony and good that I put them in my cart.  Last night I made them into bars for a quick dessert/snack and they are amazing!  Even to this non-cinnamon bun girl.  My 16 year old says they remind her of Cinnamon Crunch Cereal.  I agree.

Cinnamon Bun Rice Krispie Bars

2-3 T butter
1 package  Kraft Jet Puffed Cinnamon Bun Marshmallow, 8oz 
5 - 6 c krispie rice cereal
1 t vanilla

In a very large plastic bowl, place the butter and package of marshmallows and a scoop of butter equaling about 3 tablespoons (I never measure...).  Microwave about 1 1/2 - 2 minutes until puffy and gigantic in size.  Remove from the microwave and stir in the cereal and vanilla.  Press into a greased pan - 9X13 or 10X10 - Press down and let set to harden - or rush them a little by placing in the refrigerator until firm enough to cut into squares and eat.
