Special K Candy

These gooey treats take me back to high school when my good friend used to make them all the time. They were always so addicting and I had never even made them until Super Bowl Sunday. And man, I think I might rename them "Special Occasion" candy because there's a reason they're so good. ;)
These are similar to Rice Krispie Treats in the fact that they call for marshmallows and butter, but that's about it. Basically, you make a caramely syrup with the addition of marshmallows that makes these treats out of this world!
 The Special K are perfect paired with the caramel sauce and these will be a definite hit at any party.
 Oh and I definitely suggest sharing!

Special K Candy
2 sticks (1/2 lb.) butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 cups of mini marshmallows or 24 large marshmallows (mini melt down easier)
1 tsp. vanilla
5-6 cups Special K cereal (depending on how gooey you want them)

1. Melt butter in a medium pot over medium heat. Add white sugar, brown sugar and marshmallows, stirring occasionally, until ingredients are well combined and marshmallows are melted.
2. Add vanilla and cereal and stir to combine until cereal is well coated.

3. Scoop one large spoonful of candy at a time onto waxed paper. Let cool and serve.
