6 sli

Coat an 8*8*2 inch cake pan with non-stick spray.

Fry bacon until crispy. Drain on paper towels until cool. Chop into small pieces. It may be necessary, for peace of mind, to give a piece to the cat.

In a large pot, melt butter over medium-low heat. It will melt, then foam, then turn clear golden and finally start to turn brown and smell nutty. Stir frequently, As soon as the butter takes on a nutty color, turn the heat off and stir in the marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows are smooth, turning the heat back on only if necessary. Do not be tempted to up the marshmallow count, even though stirring in that last cup can be a little hard on the wrist. The “Crispy” part of these is just as important. Up the marshmallow count and you end up making sweet glue. (You could even get away with eating one of the marshmallows. You know, for quality control purposes only of course.)

Remove the pot from the stove and stir in the bacon pieces and cereal together. Quickly spread into prepared pan. Use a piece of waxed or parchment paper sprayed with non-stick cooking spray to press it firmly and evenly into the edges and corners..

Cool in fridge, and cut into squares.
