Who doesn't love homemade rice krispy treats? I know I do. And if you follow me on Pinterest you might also know that I have a slight S'more obsession too. (Check out my S'more Cookies if you haven't already) I blame my friend Ashley who is certifiably obsessed with s'mores and makes amazing s'more treats all the time. I may even have to have her do a s'more themed guest post once she gets done with her very intensive school internships.
That being said, when I saw these on Pinterest (via Chef In Training) I knew I would be making them really soon. Like less than 24 hours after first seeing them soon. They did not let me down.

They are as basic in concept and ingredients as the original rice krispy treats but with a mix of flavors that is anything but basic. They were easy to make except for that one and a half minute of stress and panic when you combine the cereal with the marshmallow mixture and you're not quite sure if it will ever coat the cereal evenly. But other than that, it was cake.
S'more Rice Krispy Treats
- Regular sized bag of marshmallows
- Regular sized box of Golden Grahams cereal
- Bag of any kind of chocolate chips, chunks or pieces ( I went with semi-sweet chips0
- 1/4 cup butter
2.) Stir in cereal and chocolate chips until evenly coated with marshmallow mixture. I had to transfer mine to a large mixing bowl half way through because my pot wasn't big enough. I like to stir the chips in while the marshmallow is still a little hot because they get a little bit melty and more incorporated in to the whole mixture.
3.) Press mixture firmly into a lightly greased 9x13 pan.
4.) For best results try to let them cool off and firm up before cutting. It's hard, I know.
