Snow O's - A Confection

Dawn made a batch of Rice Krispie Treats, for Saturday. The adults were happy to help the kids DEVOUR them, in no time at all. Hunter proudly informed all the happy campers, "My Mom made these!" Hers were gluten-free, using the available Kellogg's product. Awesome, right?! 

Since g-f isn't a concern for Aubs and Gav (they'll be here later on), I whipped up a batch, using Trader Joe's O's. Note my rice cooker, doing the job. It was tight when I added the O's, but therein lurked the challenge. Here ya go:

Melt 10 ounces of fluffy, white marshmallows... the snow... with 2 tablespoons of real butter. Add as much cereal as you can manage and press into a spritzed pan. Cool, cut 'n' serve. Accept the love. 
A Tip: Cut leftovers into bars and store in freezer, to be served partially frozen. Your sweet tooth will definitely be satisfied.
