s’more rice krispies

There is something about summer and s’mores. They just go together, don’t they?! Unfortunately, the summer heat is out of control here in DC and roasting marshmallows around a fire doesn’t seem like the best idea. So until fall arrives, these delicious and addicting treats will have to do. This is pretty much a win-win situation — not only are they sweet and oh so decadent, but can be enjoyed in the comfort of air conditioning!

To mimic the taste of graham crackers, I decided to use equal parts of Golden Graham cereal and Rice Krispies — I didn’t want to take away from the normal characteristics of a rice krispy treat too much. And since marshmallows are a major ingredient in s’mores, I added a few on top too 🙂
S’more Rice Krispies

{what you will need}
2 cups Golden Grahams
2 cups Rice Krispies
1 stick of unsalted butter
10 ounce bag of mini marshmallows + an additional 1/2 cup for top
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips + an additional 1/2 cup for top {I used the mini chips!}
Non-stick cooking spray

Spray a 9×9 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the 10 ounce bag of marshmallows and stir to completely combine until smooth and creamy. Turn the heat off and add the cereal and 1 cup of the chocolate chips; combine completely. Pour the mixture into a prepared baking pan and spread out evenly. Sprinkle the additional chocolate chips and gently press the additional mini marshmallows into the treats. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes to allow the treats to harden. Slice into bars, serve and enjoy! 


Thanks for stopping by and happy cooking!
