Melt 3 tbl butter and 3 cups of mini marshmallows in the microwave. (Mine was done after 1 minute.) Stir until smooth.
Stir in 5 cups of cheerios. We used honey nut.
Form 4 balls for the hands and feet, and one for the head. Make the rest into the body. If you spray your hands with Pam it will work easier. Compact pretty hard to get it to retain shape. Put the balls onto wax paper until you are ready to assemble.
