I love sending mail and packages, but am always worried about what state the sent food is going to be in once it arrives at the final destination.
First, gather your ingredients. There's only 6!
Start by browning your butter.
Then, add your marshmallows, peanut butter, and salt; then, add your cereal.
After your mixture is ready, place in a buttered 8 x 8 pan and allow to cool completely.
After they have cooled, cut into bars and enjoy! Or, send some off to your brother for his birthday.
Happy Birthday Daniel!
