Best Ever Rice Krispie Treats

My mom and my sister had both made these the weekend we were in Wisconsin.  I LOVE the extra marshmallows and the vanilla in these.
Best EVER Rice Krispie Treats
10 cups crispy rice cereal
1 cup (2 sticks) real, salted butter
2 10-oz. bags miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract or vanilla paste
1/4 teaspoon salt

Measure exactly 10 cups of rice cereal and add to a large mixing bowl (not more, not less – it has to be 10 cups for the magic to happen); set aside.
Grease a 9 x 13 pan.
Melt butter over low heat in a large pot. Once butter is melted, add marshmallows, vanilla and salt. Cook and stir over low heat until marshmallows are melted and everything is completely mixed together. If marshmallows start to brown, remove from heat and keep stirring until everything is well combined.
Pour marshmallow mixture over rice cereal and gently stir until cereal is evenly coated.
Spread mixture into prepared pan. Let treats cool to room temperature uncovered. Once set, cut into 24 squares. Store in an air-tight container.
