Hello and welcome to my blog! I am so happy you are here! I am new to this whole blogging thing, so please bear with me while I get the hang of things ๐Ÿ™‚ I have quite a yummy recipe to start things off for you. I hope you enjoy!

Ooey! Gooey! Chocolatey! Delicious!

I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t like S’mores. I also have yet to meet someone who doesn’t like Rice Krispie Treats. Frankly, if you don’t like either, I’m not sure I want to be friends. Just kidding. But really. Can you guess what I’m getting at here?

You guessed it…S’mores Rice Krispie Treats. Yup. I said it! Do you love me yet? ย Seriously, guys. SO. GOOD! These Rice Krispie Treats are topped with melty chocolate, gooey toasted marshmallows and graham crackers bits. It’s heaven in your mouth!

S’mores Rice Krispie Treats

This recipe was actually inspired by a S’mores topped brownie recipe I made once (also amazingly delicious – but that’s a recipe for another blog post). Anyway, we were invited to a friends house for dinner one night and they asked me to bring a dessert. Since I didn’t have time to make a batch of brownies after work I had to come up with something equally delicious but less time-consuming. After browsing Pinterest for something quick and easy, I decided Rice Krispie Treats sounded pretty good. But why stop there? Why not combine two of the most delicious and easy desserts ever? So I did just that- and the results were to die for! This is my go-to recipe when I need a fast but satisfyingly tasty dessert that is sure to impress.

I have to digress a little and tell a story here because anytime I make Rice Krispie Treats I am reminded of a time many years ago when my boyfriend, AJ, wanted Rice Krispie Treats. While I was in the kitchen getting the ingredients together, he asked me how long the Rice Krispie Treats had to bake for in the oven…(SMH). I still get a good laugh about that when I think about it. Good thing I do most of the cooking around here, amirite? (Love you, AJ) ๐Ÿ™‚

These are so easy to make

These S’mores Rice Krispie Treats couldn’t be any easier to make. While this recipe has a few more steps than traditional Rice Krispie Treats, I promise you it is well worth it. Funny thing, this recipe actually does go in the oven (to broil the marshmallows) for a VERY short amount of time. And I mean very short…a couple minutes tops- and don’t take your eyes off them under the broiler, or the marshmallow will burn. So, maybe AJ was actually on to something after all. By the way, broiling the marshmallows is a must because it brings out that smokey flavor and golden brown color you are looking for in a traditional S’more.

I’m literally drooling over here just thinking about these S’mores Rice Krispie Treats! You have got to get your hands on one of these…or two, or three, or the whole pan, I won’t judge!

S'mores Rice Krispie Treats

Course Dessert

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp Butter
  • 6 Cups Rice Krispie Cereal
  • 15 ounces of mini marshmallows (1.5 10 ounce bags)
  • 3 sheets of graham crackers , broken into small pieces (about 1")
  • 2 Hersey's Chocolate Bars , broken into individual squares
  • Cooking Spray

Instructions

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet or pot over medium heat. Once butter is melted add mini marshmallows and stir until they have reached a semi-smooth consistency. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the Rick Krispies cereal until combined, 2 cups at a time.
  2. Turn mixture out into a 9"x13" baking pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Spray cooking spray onto fingers, or use a small sheet of parchment paper to smooth out mixture into pan.
  3. Top Rice Krispie mixture with about half the remaining bag of mini marshmallows, about 5 ounces and put into the oven on LOW broil for 2-3 minutes TOPS. **DO NOT WALK AWAY FROM THE OVEN or the marshmallows will burn. Note: I turn the light on in the oven and watch the remove the pan as soon as the marshmallows start to brown.
  4. Top the toasted marshmallow mixture with broken up graham crackers and individual pieces of chocolate.
  5. Note: Sometimes I put the pan back into the oven while it is still warm, but not on, for a few minutes to melt the chocolate a little.
  6. Cut into squares and enjoy!
