Fire-Free S’more Rice Krispie Treat Recipe

Don’t you just love the beginning of summer?  Almost overnight the stores are suddenly stocked with red-check tablecloths, freezer pops, hot dogs and boatloads of these…

I just can’t help myself.  We don’t even have a fire pit but somehow I couldn’t stop my hands from adding these scrumptious s’more supplies to my cart last week.  Of course, once I got home I had to think of a way to use them.  I thought to myself, hmm…rice krispies are good with marshmallows, graham crackers are good with marshmallows, and everything’s good with chocolate…maybe I could mix it all together.  Luckily I had a box of generic rice krispies in my pantry so this impromptu rice krispie concoction was easy to create.  The end result looked something like this…

I’ve always been a rice krispie treat fan, but this variation was down-right delicious.  I’m sorry I don’t have pictures of the process but I was just throwing things in as I went so I didn’t have time to measure or grab a camera.  Honestly, it’s so simple you don’t really need a tutorial.  Here’s the basic idea (keep in mind I’m estimating the quantities I used so feel free to adapt the amounts to your liking).

Ingredients

3 tbsp butter

1 regular bag of large marshmallows

5 cups of rice krispie cereal

1 1/4 cup roughly smashed graham crackers

1 Hershey bar coarsely broken into pieces

Directions

  • Roughly smash your graham crackers in a large ziploc bag (my kids used a rolling pin).  The goal here is to get small chunks (about the size of a dime or less), not just crumbs.
  • Break up your Hershey bar while it’s in the wrapper.  Again, you’re going for small chunks.
  • Melt your butter in a large saucepan on low heat.  Add marshmallows and stir until melted.  Remove from heat.
  • Add rice krispies and graham cracker chunks and stir until evenly coated.
  • Add chocolate pieces and stir (the chocolate will melt into the mixture)
  • Press the mixture into a 13″x9″ baking pan coated with cooking spray and allow to cool.

My family devoured these…literally.  We didn’t even wait for them to cool – we just dug right in to the chocolately, gooey goodness.  If you’re looking for a sure-fire way to usher in summer (without actually building a fire) you should definitely give this recipe a try.  Just thought I’d pass it on.

  1. Yum!! So many great ideas! I am pretty sure I don’t need them, but will have to try them anyway. :-)

  2. Maria,
    This is a clever idea. I can’t wait to make them with my grandchildren in the next week or so. I have one granddaughter that loves to bake and work in the kitchen.

  3. Brilliant combo! I made them and we LOVED them…thanks for sharing this fun twist on an old idea.

    LOVED this! We just used chocolate chips because that was what we had in the pantry and it made it even easier. We’ve made several batches this year. Thanks for all the great ideas.
