S’mores Rice Crispy Treats!

S'mores rice crispy treats!!! by @dessertfortwo

No bake is the name of the game, friends.  Although, I can’t complain—it’s been a mild summer so far.  You too?  Personally, I love the humidity.  My hair is flat and straight, so humidity just doesn’t get its way with me—it was over before it even started.  I like how humidity makes your skin glow. I’m way into it.  Mosquitos, however?  I am not.  But, I’m trying to count mosquito swatting as an arm workout.  No?

Other things I’m way into this summer:  bare feet in grass.  I have that kind of grass that stays cool even when its hot out, and I can hardly step two feet outside before I’m kicking off my flip-flops every which way.  My grass backs up to a little wooded area, and I like to find cicada shells in the morning dew.  If I’m being totally honest, I want to shoot them out of the tree at night (so noisy!), but their little jeweled bodies creep me out in a delightful way.  I know, I need more friends.  By the way, I just googled ‘cicada shells’ and found too many photos of people wearing them in their hair. Moving on…

S'mores Rice Krispie Treats @dessertfortwo

If you’ve let this many summer days go by without having a s’more, well, shame on you!  Today is your day.  Plus, this recipe couldn’t be easier.  Line a loaf pan with graham crackers (break them into crazy pieces to make them fit–no perfectionism for us!).  Then, make a small batch of rice krispie treats (because you love small batch recipes so you don’t eat the entire pan by yourself!). Stir in chocolate chunks, and top with big, fluffy marshmallows.  I used my oven’s broiler to finish these off, but if you have one of those culinary torches (like for crème brûlée), use that.

S'mores Rice Krispies
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
:
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cup rice krispies cereal (I used the brown rice crisp cereal)
  • ⅓ cup chocolate chunks
  • 2 graham cracker sheets
  • 9 large marshmallows
Instructions
  1. In a small sauce pan, combine the mini marshmallows, butter, and salt. Warm over medium heat until everything melts into a smooth sauce. Stir often.
  2. Stir in the rice krispies, and remove from the heat.
  3. Stir the chocolate chunks into the rice krispies. In order to prevent melting the chocolate too much, I studded the rice krispie mixture with the chocolate chunks after it was already in the pan instead. It was just for aesthetics...do what you like.
  4. Press the rice krispie mixture flat onto the graham crackers. Next, snip the large marshmallows in half and dot them over the top.
  5. Broil the marshmallows until brown (about 4 minutes), or use a culinary torch.

    Hooray! I’ve found someone that says their hair going flat is a good thing! I truly don’t understand what’s bad about hair going flat and limp. As my hairdresser said on Friday, “The problem with humidity and you curly girls, is that you can look plumb crazy, like you didn’t even try to do something with your hair. No offense, of course.” I wasn’t offended. It’s true. But, a lot of people don’t get this. Anyway, there’s NOTHING better than going barefoot. I don’t work today or tomorrow, and shoes won’t touch my feet for two days. It’s glorious. I’m so glad that we won’t have to wear shoes in heaven, because if we did, it wouldn’t be heaven. Wow. Clearly, I had a lot of nothing to say this morning, so I’m done. Love these yummies and will have to make them for Poppa Swope and myself. xoxo

    These look beyond delicious, what a combo!!!! These smore rice crispy treats are too cute for words =) Yum

    But humidity and my hair…..no thanks…..I used to have perfectly straight hair and then 2 children later it got obnoxiously curlers. Those darn hormones!!!!

    I couldn’t resist following your lead and Googling “cicada shells” and…well…EW!! WHY PEOPLE?! These krispies though? Definitely not ew. I love the toasy broiler action – so pretty!

    What a fun twist on s’mores! Love how this is two of my favorite treats in one. Jealous of your straight hair. This humidity we’re having leaves me looking like one big frizzy mess. Hence the constant ponytail I’m always rockin’!

    Yum! I have a total smore’s obsession right now and these are not helping. I think I have to make them. Love the rice crispy idea! So crunchy and fun and summery.

    These look just divine! My boyfriend often times request Rice Krispie Treats, and since that is the one dessert he actually requests, I always make it. My idea of a small batch is making a 9×9 pan of them which he eats in an hour or less LOL. He doesn’t like fancy RKT so I am going to have to do some sweet talking ti make these next time!

    Lucky you, mine is being the hottest summer everrrrrrrrr. I could totally melt all the marshmallows in the world just putting them outside the house, which I might attempt to do, because, yum, melty marshmallows are life. And so are these krispy treats. Oh gosh, they look brilliant!!!

    One of the best summertime treats that can be made inside on a rainy day! Thank-you for sharing this simple solution that I’ll be saving to make with my grandchildren!

    I agree that cicada shells are oddly fascinating in a kind of creepy way, you won’t find me seeking them out. What you will find me doing is hip-checking my boys out of the way to eat as many of these s’mores krispie treats as possible before they can get their grubby little hands on them. It’s call Proper Parenting. ;)

    I’m going to pretend I didn’t read the part about your interest in bug “shells”, and focus on the food.. ;-) I love this idea for camping, because it seems like it would travel well! No broken cookies or refrigerator needed. And because who wouldn’t want to eat s’mores rice crispys???
