S’mores Rice Krispies Treats

Can we get a technicality out of the way here? Are these called Rice Krispies Treats or Rice Krispie Treats? Because, personally, I’ve always said the latter. But that doesn’t seem right since the cereal is called Rice Krispies. And I can tell you that their website surely did not shed any light on this issue—on there, they’re called “the original treats.” I’m pretty sure it’s because they don’t know what to call these, either.

Whatever you call them, marhmallowy rice cereal bars (BOOM) are fanfreakingtastic, right? I can pretty much never make them because I will eat an entire pan on my own. I have absolutely ZERO restraint around them, possibly less than any other dessert. I don’t know what it is, but they are incredibly addictive.

Now, normally, I’m a bit of a purist when it comes to these babies. Don’t even think about adding peanut butter to them, for example. But these screamed out to me as soon as I saw them. I pinned these a while back, but when I saw Courtney posting them, then I really knew I had to make them (even if it did take over a year…).

Maybe it’s because in addition to being rice krispie treats obsessed, I’m also s’mores obsessed. Maybe because this version just makes sense, considering a predominant ingredient in s’mores is already a predominant ingredient in rice krispie treats. I don’t know, but I can tell you that adding a  buttery graham cracker crust and chocolate certainly did not help me have any restraint around these.

I think I’ve always said Rice Krispies Treats…but now I’m thinking about it too much so it’s probably changing what it sounds like in my mind lol.

Gooey marshmallow and chocolate were meant for each other, so I can see how this just works. It’s unlikely I’d be able to be trusted around a pan either!

This is not a recipe I would make for myself. But I can think of numerous people who
love Rice Krispies Treats. I made something similar a few years ago. I have lost the recipe, but I do remember it was immensely popular at my office open house of all
places. I guess it’s one of those throw back foods that have wonderful memories
attached to them.
