  • If you prefer to use the microwave, you can combine the butter, marshmallows, and peanut butter in a large microwave safe dish. Be sure to stir frequently! I prefer the stove top method because I have memories of exploding marshmallow peeps in my microwave as a kid. I also have memories of cleaning the microwave afterwards.
  • You may substitute any crispy brown rice cereal for Rice Krispies.
