S'mores Rice Krispies Treats

Rice Krispies treats are one of those things that I love to eat but never think about making. Several weeks ago I saw the packaged variety in the store, and I suddenly needed Rice Krispies Treats (#notpregnant). I landed on making this s'mores version for our church small group this week, and they are so delicious. They really do taste like s'mores, and we can't stop eating them. Have a great weekend!

S'mores Rice Krispies Treats
3 cups rice cereal
4 graham crackers, crumbled into bite-sized pieces (not crushed)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
4 Tbsp butter
1 (10.5 0z) bag of mini marshmallows

Spray a 8x8 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the rice cereal, graham cracker pieces, and chocolate chips. Set aside. Reserve a few marshmallows from the bag (about 1/8 cup or so) and set those aside.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the remaining marshmallows to the saucepan and stir with the butter until smooth.

Pour the marshmallow butter mixture into the rice cereal mixture and combine with a spatula. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and press into an even layer (use a spatula that's been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray to keep it clean). Sprinkle the reserved marshmallows on top.

Chill for 30 minutes before slicing and serving. Makes 12.
