S'mores Rice Krispy Treats

So I saw this bumper sticker on the back of a mini van the other day that made me kind of laugh. I'm sure you've all seen it before, it's the one that says "Baby on Board!" in a yellow diamond... Does anyone else think it's ironic to have one of those on a mini van? Doesn't the fact that you are driving around in a mini van scream "I have children! Stay clear!"

Now I'm not saying this because I'm a mini van hater. As a matter of fact I'm have a secret crush on them. I can't wait till the day when I can justify purchasing a Swagger Wagon myself. Am I embarrassed? No. I am secure in my coolness. And seriously, what's not to love? Automatic sliding doors. AUTOMATIC SLIDING DOORS. Can life get better? TV screens... Everywhere. More cup holders than you can count. Safety features galore. Room for everyone and their dog. Did I mention they have Automatic Sliding Doors? I'm about 2 children away from buying one. I can't wait.

Anyways, enough of that. I just had to share that bumper sticker experience with you all. Now on to the treat of the day: S'more Rice Krispy Treats. Let's be honest, you all knew this was coming sometime. Because really, have you evermet  anybody who doesn't like s'mores? And what better way to mix them up than in a rice krispy treat?

These treats use some delicious Golden Grahams to give it the signature graham cracker flavor. (but you still need to use rice krispies as well... if you only use Golden Grahams the treats get too hard/crunchy) And then we get the delicious chocolate goodness from the chocolate chips. And finally we get a super marshmallow boost by using both real marshmallows and marshmallow bits. Oh man. I wish I could send each of you a piece of these. They are so good. Do yourself a favor and go pick up a box of Golden Grahams, get out your bag of marshmallows, and pull out that bag of chocolate chips you have hidden from your kids/husband/roommates/etc... and whip up a batch of these things!

S'mores Rice Krispy Treats

4 Tbsp butter
6 cups marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups rice krispies
2 cups Golden Grahams
3/4 cup Marshmallow Bits
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Mix together the rice krispies, Golden Grahams, Marshmallow Bits, and chocolate chips. Set aside. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Turn the heat down to the lowest setting and add the marshmallows. Stir until almost totally melted, then add the vanilla extract. Continuing stirring until the marshmallows are all melted, slow and steady.

Once fully melted, take them off heat and pour over the rice krispy mixture. Stir lightly to combine. Dump into a lightly greased 9x9 pan and let sit 5 minutes. Then go and light press into the pan with greased hands.  Allow them to cool and set about 20 minutes.
 Enjoy!

  4. Oh. My. Gosh. First of all, I was drawn here by your pictures from the Marvelous Monday Link Party and the fact that I adore S'mores and Rice Krispy Treats. But are you serious? Your whole blog is dedicated to these marshmallowy treats?? I have to follow you...it's not a want...it's a need. I've been known to microwave some mallows in a bowl with a little pad of butter and stir in some stale Rice cereal and consider it an amazing treat. I am an addict. Thanks for sharing!

  6. recipe bit confusing. You say "Mix together the rice krispies, Golden Grahams, Marshmallow Bits, and chocolate chips." Then set aside. Next you say melt butter and add the marshmallows. How can you do that if you say to mix together the rice krispies, golden grahams, marshmallow bits and chocolate chips. Please review your instructions and clarify what does NOT get melted. Tnx. I want to try these.

    1. Sorry for the confusion! The Marshmallow Bits and the regular marshmallows are actually 2 different things. The Bits are the tiny hard marshmallows that you'd find in a hot chocolate mix. (I have a link above to some) You mix 3/4 cup of these in with the dry cereal. Then the 6 cups of regular marshmallows are what you are melting with the butter. Hope this helps clarify!
