Crispy Cereal Treats With Chocolate and Pretzels
Nonstick Cooking Spray
6 tbsp. Salted Butter (3/4 stick)
1 10-oz. Bag Mini Marshmallows
3 c. Crispy Rice Cereal
3 c. Mrs Prindables Chocolate and Caramel Dipped Pretzels, chopped
Sea Salt, for sprinkling
1. Line a 9-inch, square baking pan with aluminum foil. Leave 1 inch of overhang on all four sides. Coat the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter and add marshmallows. Stir mixture until smooth, about three minutes.
3. Remove pan from heat and add the crispy cereal and Mrs Prindables Chocolate and Caramel Dipped Pretzels. Stir mixture until everything is evenly combined. Spread the mixture into the prepared baking pan, using a spatula to press it evenly onto the bottom. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt.
4. Set pan on a rack and let cool to room temperature. Once fully cooled, lift it out of the pan using the foil overhang. Cut into squares. Serve right away, or transfer the treats to an airtight container.
