S'mores Crispy Rice Treats

Pin It Now!

Ah, camping.  The fond memories of dirt, showers that charge $0.50 for two minutes of (sometimes) hot water, and who can forget: the food!  Particularly the food that seems to be synonymous with camping, the s'more.  I had fun burning the marshmallows and all, but frankly, I found them messy, unwieldy, and just kind of a pain.  Well, pain no more!  I have combined the best of the s'more world with all that is wonderful about rice crispy treats.  I mean come on, a rice crispy treat is 1/3 of the way to becoming a s'more, right?  Here is a recipe that is easy to prep before leaving on a camping trip, travels well, and if you have little ones, gives them all the s'more flavor, without the fire hazard.

S'more Crispy Rice Treats

  • 1 package (9 sheets) graham crackers
  • 1 bag (10 oz.) mini marshmallows, divided
  • 12 oz. semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 cups rice crispies cereal
  1. Line a 9x13 in pan with parchment paper, or spray with non-stick cooking spray, set aside.
  2. Crush the graham crackers into fairly small crumbs, some larger pieces are ok (I just did it right in the bag they were in, why dirty another bag or bowl?).
  3. Mix the cereal and crushed graham crackers in a large bowl, as well as 1 cup of the marshmallows.
  4. Place all the remaining marshmallows and the butter in a large microwave safe bowl, and heat in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until the marshmallows are completely melted and the butter is incorporated.
  5. Pour the marshmallow mixture into the cereal and graham cracker mix, and stir until well combined.
  6.  Pour into the prepared pan and press into the pan to form an even layer.  Spraying a spatula with non-stick cooking spray may help in spreading if it is sticking.
  7. Place chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until completely melted.  
  8. Pour chocolate over the cereal mixture and smooth out over the entire pan.
  9. Let them set up in the fridge or on the counter until the chocolate and marshmallows are set.
  10. Cut into squares and enjoy!
