I am not sure there is a better combination of sweets than chocolate, marshmallow and graham. The joy isn’t just in the taste of the ooey gooey smores, but in the trip back to your childhood nights you take when you eat them. Same can be said for Rice Krispie Treats- I feel like I am in the small desk at Woodland Elementary whenever I eat the kids treat.
Inspired from childhood, my friend Alex and Macaroni and Cheesecake
- 6 cups mini marshmallows, 1- 10 ounce bag
- 1 12 ounce package semi sweet chocolate chips
- 5 tablespoon butter
- 6 cups Golden Graham Cereal
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Place package of chocolate chips and 1 cup of marshmallows in the freezer to chill. Coat a 9 x 13 baking pan with cooking spray.
In medium sauce pan melt the butter over medium heat. Add in 5 cups of marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Drop in the salt and vanilla and stir. Once combined remove from heat and pour into your largest mixing bowl (I used my large tossed salad bowl). Add the cereal into the mixing bowl and stir until well coated before throwing in the frozen chips and marshmallows. When all is mixed well spread into the baking pan, pressing to evenly fill the pan. Allow to set, storing in the refrigerator.
Makes about 2 dozen squares.
Added bonus – Pretty sure you can get the kiddos to do the dirty work to get these smores!
