There's really very little that needs to be said about this week's installment of Saturdays in the Kitchen. Hello, rice krispie treat s'mores. It's lovely to meet you. We can't wait to make you. This recipe is proof that sometimes, dessert is best when it's kept simple. Goodness, do we ever love Pinterest for showing us goodies such as these.
Rice Krispie Treat S’mores
Yields 8 S’mores
For the Rice Krispies Treats
Recipe from Kelloggs
3 tbsp Butter
4 C Mini marshmallows
6 C Rice Krispies cereal
For the S’mores
1/4 C Graham cracker crumbs
6 oz Chocolate for melting
For the Marshmallow frosting, please see this post for the recipe.
- Prepare the Rice Krispies treats by combining butter and mini marshmallows in a medium sized sauce pan. Stir over medium heat until marshmallows are melted. Pour the cereal in the sauce pan and stir until well mixed.
- Grease a large baking pan or cookie sheet (I used 12”x17”) or two smaller pans with Crisco. Spoon cereal and marshmallow mixture into the pan. Use a spatula and spread evenly. Use a piece of wax paper over the top and gently press mixture into pan. You want to have somewhat of a thin layer of Rice Krispie Treats, which is why I suggest using two pans. Leave them to harden for at least 30 minutes.
- Prepare your frosting by following this recipe while your treats are setting. You will have extra frosting, unless you made a double batch of treats.
For the assembly
- Use a juice glass or cookie cutter and cut your Rice Krispies treats into circles (Allow your editor to immediately consume all remaining Rice Krispies Treats, because he loves them).
- Use a spoon or piping bag to put marshmallow on one side of the treat.
- Spoon some graham cracker crumbs on top and cover with a second Rice Krispie treat circle.
- Use a microwave safe bowl and melt chocolate in 30 second increments, stirring after each 30 seconds until chocolate is melted.
- Dip Rice Krispies Sandwich into chocolate and put on wax paper to allow chocolate to set; less than five minutes.
These are really easy to assemble and taste pretty amazing. Once you take a bite into the sandwich, the frosting oozes out the side.
