Grease a 9×13 pan and set aside.

In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Continue cooking the butter, it will start to foam and smell toasted. Once the butter is a light nutty brown, turn down heat and add the marshmallows, salt, and the vanilla extract. Continue to stir constantly until the marshmallows are almost completely melted. Remove from heat. Add the cashews, toffee bits, and rice cereal and mix to fully combine.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Smooth the top and allow to cool before cutting into bars.
