3 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

1 bag (10 ounces) marshmallows

5 cups cereal (see note)

In a large pot over medium-low to medium heat, melt butter and peanut butter. Add marshmallows and stir occasionally until smooth.

Add cereal and stir until combined. Spread mixture into a 9-by-13-pan and allow to cool. Or, allow mixture to cool slightly and then, with buttery hands, shape palm-sized chunks of cereal into balls or football shapes.

Serves 16 to 20.

Cook's note: We like these with a combination of crispy rice cereal and honey-nut oat flakes or Os-style cereal.
