S'Mores Krispie Treats


Ingredients:
4 tablespoons butter
13 oz large marshmallows
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
6 cups crisped rice cereal (AKA Rice Krispies)
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 graham crackers, crumbled into big chunks

Directions:

Coat 13x9x2 inch pan with cooking spray. Set aside. In a large bowl, stir together the cereal, chips, graham crackers (chunks and any crumbs!). Set aside.

Melt butter over low heat in a large, tall pot. Add marshmallows and vanilla and stir until nearly completely melted. Remove from heat and stir in cereal, chips and graham crackers. Use a greased spoon or spatula the cereal into the pan. Use the back of the spoon to press it firmly into the pan in an even layer. Cool, cut into squares and eat.

My thoughts:
It has been forever since I made Rice Krispie treats! I was snacking on some S'mores flavored marshmallows recently and thought how great would this flavor be in a Rice Krispie treat? As it turns out? So good! The chocolate melts and coats a lot of the cereal (yum!) but a few chunks remaining so every bite is full of chocoalte-y goodness. The graham cracker is a more subtle addition, the cereal is alreafy pretty crunchy but since I broke the crackers over the bowl of cereal, the flavor is there adding that authentic S'mores flavor. All of the taste of the campfire classic made into shareable bars.
