Ingredients

One 10-ounce bag large marshmallows

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/4 teaspoon pure almond extract

6 cups crispy rice cereal, such as Kellogg's Rice Krispies

1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

1/3 cup dried cherries, chopped

Directions

  1. 1. Line a 9-by-9-inch square baking pan with nonstick aluminum foil, leaving a 1-inch overhang on each end to lift the finished treats out of the pan. You may need to use 2 sheets to cover the entire pan.
  2. 2. Put the marshmallows and butter in a large pot and set over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until the mixture is melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and stir in the almond extract. Add the cereal and continue to stir until well coated. Stir in most of the chocolate chips (reserve 1 tablespoon for sprinkling over the top) and the chopped cherries. Spoon into the foil-lined pan and press firmly with your hands until the treats are even. Sprinkle on the remaining 1 tablespoon chocolate chips and press them into the top with your hands. Cool at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  3. 3. Using the foil overhang, lift the treats out of the pan and cut with a butter knife into 9 or 12 bars.
