  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows 1 bag
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Biscoff spread or nut butter
  • 2 sleeves Ritz crackers crushed (makes 3 cups)


  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips to melt and drizzle
  • pretzel salt or kosher salt


  • Prepare everything for quick mixing. Crush the crackers and measure the vanilla and Biscoff (or nut butter). Grease an 8x8 or 9x9 casserole pan.
  • In microwave or on stovetop, melt butter in a large bowl or pan. Add marshmallows and continue to heat on low; in microwave, heat for 25 seconds, stir, 25 more seconds, stir, until everything blends together.
  • Add the vanilla extract and Biscoff, then the crumbs. Stir until everything is well blended. Glop it into the prepared pan. Use a piece of wax paper and a glass or firm spatula to compress everything.
  • To add some topping for oomph, melt the chocolate and drizzle it over the treats. Immediately sprinkle some salt over it all.
  • Let set for an hour or so, until firm. Cut into small squares.
