Cocoa Rice Krispie Treats a Classic

So we have a busy weekend ahead of us with "The Final Four" college basketball games pretty much right around the corner and then our church's General Conference also this weekend, we have got lots going on!

So what better to make while watching all of these lovely programs than the classic Rice Krispie treat, (well almost classic) we like ours with cocoa krispies and chocolate chips throughout. Seriously whip up a batch of these bad boys this weekend.  I promise you wont be let down!

3 Tbsp. Butter (melted)
1 (16 oz) bag marshmallows (we like ours extra gooey)
5-6 cups Cocoa Krispies Cereal
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a large pot, melt the butter and marshmallows, stirring constantly to avoid any burning (about 5 minutes) When melted stir in the cereal and chocolate chips. Transfer to a lightly buttered 9x13 dish and press down to form the treats. Let the treats cool and set up about an hour (or if you are like us you eat them straight out of the pan as soon as they are cool enough to eat!)
Happy Friday and hope you all have an amazing weekend!


  1. My problem with these is that I will eat many more than my kids. I may have to splurge.

    We're also looking forward to conference. :)

  2. Oh Muriel!! Chocolate and more chocolate. We love some rice krispies treats around here. These would be perfect for us!!

  3. Yum! These look and sound so good right now. I'll definitely have to make these soon.
