  • 1 container (16 ounce) Ready-to-spread Vanilla Frosting
  • 5 Star-shaped Cookie Cutters, In Assorted Sizes Ranging From 2 To 5 Inches
  • LINE 15x10x1-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan. Lightly grease foil; set aside. Microwave butter in 4-qt. microwaveable bowl sprayed with cooking spray on HIGH 30 sec. or until butter is melted. Add marshmallows; stir with wooden spoon sprayed with cooking spray. Microwave 1-1/2 min.; stir. Microwave an additional 2 min., stirring after each min. Add cereal; mix well. Press firmly into prepared pan. Cool 15 min.
