Chocolate Rice Crispy Treats

Let me start by saying that I absolutely hate marshmallows. Sometimes I think what's there not to like about them--they're all sugar--but then I give them a try and remember that just I don't like them. But they're usually okay with other things. For example these rice crispy treats I made are so delicious! Home made rice crispy treats are so much better than the kind you buy in a store.

Chocolate Rice Crispy Treats
40 large marshmallows (or 3 cups miniature ones)
5 c. crisp rice cereal
1/3 c. butter (I naturally used just a little more than called for)
3/4 c. Semi-sweet chocolate chips divided into 1/2 c. and 1/4 c. portions

Melt butter over low heat then add 1/2 c. chocolate chips, and then marshmallows. Stir until melted. When the marshmallows and chocolate are completely melted mix in the rice cereal. Mix well. "Pour" this mixture into a well greased dish, sprinkle 1/4 c. chocolate chips on top and compress with the back of a well greased spoon.

Pro Tip: Soak the pot for a long time before cleaning because melted marshmallow is really hard to scrub off.

  1. Cleaning the pan is always the worst part about making rice crispy treats! It takes as long as making the darn things! I do love them though. I don't make them very often because I will eat the entire tray before I realize what I've done. :)
