S’mores Rice Krispies Treats

This is the last recipe I made while my sisters and mom were in town a couple weeks ago. You see, my family is a family of snackers. We like to sit around playing cards, board games, or watching movies and enjoying some delicious snacks.

S'mores Rice Krispies Treats

Which is basically what our girls weekend consisted of for the majority of the time. Sure, we did some touristy Cincinnati things (including lunch at a local brewery, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, and a riverboat cruise), but we also vegged out watching Hunger Games, playing Euchre, and a fun dice game called Greedy outside on the patio.

So we had plenty of opportunity for snacking. And this sweet snack was a big hit. By mixing Golden Grahams cereal and chunks of chocolate in to a standard Rice Krispies treat recipe, it’s no surprise that everyone loved it. Especially since my youngest sister LOVES s’mores and it was WAY too hot out to make a fire in the fire pit (although we did make s’mores over the gas stove one night, since I had the supplies).

S'mores Rice Krispies Treats

Ingredients:

4 Tbsp butter
6 cups marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups Rice Krispies
2 cups Golden Grahams
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
4 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped

Directions:

Mix together the Rice Krispies, Golden Grahams, and graham cracker crumbs. Set aside.

Lightly grease an 8x8 pan.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Turn the heat down to the lowest setting and add the marshmallows. Stir until almost totally melted, then add the vanilla extract. Continuing stirring until the marshmallows are all melted.

Once fully melted, take them off heat and pour over the Rice Krispies mixture. Stir lightly to combine.

Dump half of the mixture into pan. Sprinkle with half of the chopped chocolate.

Pour the remaining Rice Krispies mixture into the pan. Press down with lightly greased hands. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate on top. Allow to cool completely before cutting.

    Of course they are! I seriously can’t justify buying marshmallows anymore. They’re just so easy and SO good homemade. I even whipped up a batch to put on our twice baked sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving.
