When the butter is melted add marshmallows

Keep stirring on the lowest heat, making sure it does not burn (you may even need to remove the pan from heat at times, depending on hob). It will melt fairly quickly, you just need to wait and not be tempted to turn up heat

When melted take the pan off the heat and add approx 5 cups of rice crispies. Add 1 cup at a time and stir. It will cool quickly when it is off the heat so you need to get rice crispies stirred in quickly.

Pour rice crispies in to the lined tin.

It is very sticky so the easiest way to compact rice crispies is by folding over excess baking paper and pressing and fold back straight away to stop it sticking.
