  • Paramount crystals, coconut oil, or vegetable oil.

In a large microwave-safe bowl melt marshmallows and butter for 90 seconds. Go around the bowl with a rubber spatula making sure the marshmallows aren’t sticking to the bowl. Add half of the crispy cereal and half of the crushed Oreos. Mix well.
