S’more Rice Krispies Treats

There was a sale on the large boxes of Rice Krispies cereal, so I immediately started thinking of making treats but making them MY way. I was inspired by this recipe from Mom On Time Out but it needed a bit more graham cracker goodness and for me to adultify it by using a better quality, darker chocolate.

The sag on these is because I didn’t wait 10 minutes before rolling!

S'more Rice Krispies Treats

4 tablespoons butter
10 ounce bag marshmallows (about 40)
5 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 – 7 ounce container marshmallow cream
2 cups semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate, melted

In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat in a Dutch oven or other large saucepan. As butter melts, use some to brush the bottom of a large, rimmed baking sheet (the one I used is 12 inches by 19 inches). Place a piece of waxed paper down and brush it with butter as well. Without all the butter, it doesn’t roll up so well!

After the butter is melted, add in the marshmallows and stir until completely melted.  Stir in the Rice Krispies cereal and the graham cracker crumbs until it is well mixed. Press into the prepared pan.

Spread across the top the entire container of marshmallow cream. Over that, spread the melted chocolate. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes to harden a little and then roll from the long side (unless you want honking huge treats, don’t roll from the short side!). Allow to harden in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before slicing into rounds.
