Figuring out how to use them in recipes was a challenge because everything is done with smaller marshmallows, so I took a little time with this to make the easiest, fastest, and least messy way to make marshmallow crispies with them. It makes a large rectangular cake pan full and a smaller square pan full, which us just about right to make about 30 treats. Sounds like a lot, right? They'll be gone in about two days even with just one husband around. They're yummy like this, but you can change it by adding 1/2 cup peanut butter, or drizzling the top with melted chocolate, etc. Get creative!
Lightly grease a large 9 x 13 cake pan and a smaller 9 inch square baking pan with butter.
In a large heavy 6 Qt. stainless steel pot, melt the stick of butter on very low heat. As it's melting, start cutting the marshmallows into fourths to speed melting if you like, and toss them in with the butter. Stir (raising the heat just a little) until all the marshmallow bits are melted. Measure in 15 cups of crisped rice cereal and stir, keeping it over the heat until you've quickly stirred all the cereal in and it looks well covered.
Pour it out into the two pans, pushing it out with a buttered spoon to get it placed fairly evenly in the pans. Butter your hands, and press the mix down somewhat firmly into the pans until it looks even.
Butter a flat-ended spatula and push it straight down into the mix to "cut" it into squares or rectangles, however you'd like. It helps to butter it again often and go over the lines twice.
You're only left with a one-pot mess that soaks out quickly, just fill with water and leave the spatula and spoon in it.
This is a fast and inexpensive treat for a crowd, but goes fast even in a small family.

Melt butter and marshmallows in microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between. Once melted, add dry cake mix into marshmallow/butter mix and stir until blended. Put rice krispies in a very large bowl and pour marshmallow/butter/cake mix mixture over top and mix thoroughly (I use my own buttered clean hands) and combine thoroughly. Press into buttered cake pan top generously with sprinkles, cover with plastic wrap and cool completely.
You could vary this recipe using different cake flavors like cocoa krispies with German chocolate cake mix and sprinkle with toasted coconut. I think next time I'll use funfetti cake mix. Mmm! Enjoy!

Press mixture into a greased 13 x 9 inch pan by using the buttered back of a spoon. Immediately make 24 indentations with the handle of a wooden spoon. Press peanut butter cups into indentations. Cool and cut into squares.
It is a good recipe and it is so nice to make in the summer when it is hot and you want something easy with chocolate but you do not want to turn that oven on. They are great for traveling, picnics, anything where you need a quick dessert! If you need to do them over the stove, I would use a double boiler so nothing will burn. Enjoy!

Grease a 13 by 9 pan. Meanwhile, melt butter on med-low heat on stove. Slowly stir in marshmallows and stir until smooth. Immediately pour over krispies in a large bowl, stirring with a sturdy wooden spoon and pat firmly in pan. I grease my hands first. I then lick my hands after which leads me to eat a treat right away. You can press in cute sprinkles for Easter, and wrap in plastic wrap for giving, as well.

I make a regular batch as well and, for Valentines Day for example, I cut both out into heart shapes. Then cut each heart in half and press one vanilla half against one chocolate half for a "black and white" treat. (02/13/2008)
