S’mores Rice Krispie Treats

More kid treats fanc-i-fied (real word – fo’sure) this time I’m turning the standard rice krispie treat into a s’mores rice krispie treat.

S'mores Rice Krispie Treats

 

Anyone notice how I am sort of stuck on my kitchen torch lately? If you are a “way-back” reader than you already know this—for those of you who are more recent readers, I have a tendency to get in these little fits and pockets of repetition.

Right now – it’s all about s’mores recipes and firing up my kitchen torch, so be prepared for at least one more s’mores treat.

S'mores Rice Krispie Treats

Yield: Makes one 9x13 pan

Ingredients:

Graham cracker crust

  • 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 8 tablespoons of butter

Rice krispie layer

  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 bag (10 1/2 oz mini marshmallow)
  • 6 cups Cocoa Rice Krispie cereal
  • 5 oz. chocolate, melted

Toasted marshmallow topping

  • 5 large egg white
  • 11/2 cup sugar

Directions:

Preparation

Line pan with foil and lightly cover with bake spray.

To make graham cracker layer

  1. Place graham cracker crust and sugar in a bowl and toss to combine. Add in melted butter and mix to combine. Press mixture onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 7-10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.

To make rice krispie treat

  1. Place butter and marshmallows in a pan over low heat to melt. Stir melted ingredients until combined. Cool slightly.
  2. Add in Cocoa Rice Krsipie and stir to combine.
  3. Spread melted chocolate over crust. Then quickly press finished mixture into pan. Set pan aside to cool and set.

To make toasted marshmallow topping:

  1. Combine egg whites and sugar in a bowl placed over simmering water. Bring mixture to 160 degrees F while whisking constantly.
  2. Transfer mixture to stand mixer bowl, fitted with a whisk attachment and beat on medium high speed (speed 8 on a KitchenAid stand mixer)until mixture cools and doubles in volume and forms stiff peaks; about 10-12 minutes.
  3. Place assembled pan with topping under broiler for 1-2 minutes or until top starts to turn golden. Keep door open to check for doneness - the topping goes from golden to burnt very quickly. Alternately, use a kitchen torch to toast.

A few notes:

  • You can bypass the homemade marshmallow frosting topping and just place 2 cups of mini marshmallows on top and then place the pan under the broiler  for 1-2 minutes or until top starts to turn golden. Make sure to keep the door open to check for doneness - the topping goes from golden to burnt very quickly.
  • A chocolate layer on top of the graham cracker crust is needed for the rice krispie to stick to it, so don't skip that step.
  • These s'mores rice krispie treats are best eaten the same day.

    Love that you layered them just like a smore instead of mixing it all together
