Two things I've noticed. People like S'mores and people like Rice Krispie Treats. And hello?! Why shouldn't they?! They are both a simple and sweet-tooth satisfying dessert. They can be whipped up in a matter of minutes and still get big smiles across young and old faces alike.
Now, I know I just posted about "S'mores" and I've had a previous post or two about Rice Krispie Treats, so I hope you don't think I'm being lazy because trust me, you'll be glad I shared this recipe!
This recipe was inspired by Two Peas in a Pod, and they adapted it from City Baked on Tasty Kitchen. So suffice it to say, this recipe is highly adaptable. I'm happy with the version I created and I got a lot of positive feedback about these treats. If you don't have and/or want to buy two different kinds of Rice Krispies cereal, then just use whichever cereal you have on hand!
S'mores Rice Krispie Treats
- 4 Tbsp. salted butter
- 1, 10.5 oz package + 1/2 10.5 oz package miniature marshmallows
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 3 c. Rice Krispie cereal
- 3 c. Cocoa Krispie cereal
- 1c. semi-sweet chocolate chunks
- 1 pack honey graham crackers, broken up into small pieces, not crushed!
Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
On a cookie sheet, pour half a 10.5 oz package of mini marshmallows. Turn the oven onto a "High" broil and broil marshmallows until golden-dark brown...watch closely! Or similarly, use a brûlée torch to toast marshmallows.
In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Turn heat down to low and add 10.5 oz package of mini marshmallows. Stir until marshmallows are melted and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Pour your two cereals over the top. Fold into melted marshmallows. Once combined, add toasted marshmallows, chocolate chunks, and graham cracker pieces. Again, fold gently until add-ins are evenly distributed.
Pour mixture into prepared pan. Evenly distribute mixture in the pan using moist finger tips. I do not press the treats down hard into the pan. I like a "fluffier" treat. Let cool completely to firm up. Cut into 24 small bars or 12 nice large delicious ones! Mmm-mm!
|That's what you want! Nice chunks of chocolate, toasted marshmallow, and graham cracker!
