Cap 'n Crunch Bars

When I'm at work, a foodie gremlin (namely my mother) will occasionally drop off treats that she's concocted during her day.  This week she dropped off these bars and they've been a hit especially with my husband who secretly eats sugary "kid" cereal at night once the kids have gone to bed!  I'm not sure where she found her recipe but I found it here

6 cups Cap’n Crunch (which ever flavor you like)
4.5 tablespoons butter
1 10.5 oz bag mini marshmallows
1 tsp salt

Spray a 13×9 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside. Pour cereal in a large zip-loc bag. Seal and smash cereal a few times with a rolling pin. In a medium sauce pan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add salt to melted butter, stir until salt is dissolved. Add marshmallows to butter. Stir until all marshmallows are melted. Remove from heat. Add in cereal and stir until cereal is completely coated. Pour cereal mixture into baking pan. Press down, and let cool completely. Cut into desired size bars.
