By Mary Reardon MADISON, Wis. (Reuters) - University of Wisconsin-Madison students said on Sunday they have completed a Rice Krispies cereal treat weighing more than 5-1/2 tons they hope will be entered into Guinness World Records. The colossus made by combining Rice Krispies cereal, marshmallows and butter was more than 1,000 pounds heavier than a 10,314 pound Rice Krispies treat made in California in 2010 that is recognized by Guinness World Records. The students had been aiming for a 15,000 pound dessert and manufacturers had donated 9,000 pounds of marshmallows, 5,500 pounds of Rice Krispies and 900 pounds of butter for the effort. Danny Lerner, one of the organizers, said Sunday he was pleased with the results after challenges posed by raw weather and warping in the wooden mold used to make the treat.
