S’Mores Rice Krispie Treats

Nothing beats making fresh s’mores over a campfire.  But if all you have is a microwave, you’re still in luck, because with a few pushes of a button and some stirring, you can make these S’mores Rice Krispie Treats.  Melted marshmallows are spread over the bottom layer of graham crackers, and a mixture of milk and dark chocolate, cashew butter, and rice krispies cereal tops it all off.

S’Mores Rice Krispie Treats

(Adapted from Kellogg’s Rice Krispies)
Makes one 9×13 inch pan of bars

Ingredients

7 rectangular sheets of graham crackers (each cracker sheet measures about 5×2 inches and is scored into 4 pieces)
2 1/2 cups marshmallows
2 cups(12 oz.) chocolate morsels or chopped chocolate bar (you can use a mixture of milk, semi-sweet, or dark chocolate)
2/3 cup light corn syrup
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup nut butter, smooth or crunchy (I used cashew butter, but you can also use peanut or almond butter)
3 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Directions

  1. Coat 13 x 9 x 2-inch microwave-safe pan (I used a glass pan) with cooking spray.
  2. Put rice krispie cereal in a large bowl and set aside.
  3. Arrange graham crackers in single layer in the pan, breaking the crackers as needed to fit.
  4. Arrange marshmallows evenly over crackers, making sure that nearly all of the surface is covered.
  5. Microwave the pan on high for 1 minute or until marshmallows are puffy. Remove from the microwave and set aside to let cool.
  6. In a microwave-safe mixing bowl, combine the chocolate, corn syrup, and butter. Microwave on high for about 1 1/2 minutes or until chocolate is melted, stirring every 30 seconds.
  7. Add the nut butter to the chocolate mixture and stir until smooth.
  8. Pour the chocolate-nut butter mixture over the rice krispie cereal, stirring until combined.
  9. Spread the mixture evenly over the marshmallows.
  10. Cover and refrigerate for about 1 hour or until firm. Cut and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
