Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats


– 1 (10 oz.) bag, mini marshmallows – 4 tablespoons butter – 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder – 1 cup mini chocolate chips, divided – 6 cups cocoa krispies cereal


Step 1

Spray a 9x9" pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside. (You can also use a 9 x13" pan for thinner squares.)

Step 2

To a large microwave safe bowl, add the marshmallow and butter. Microwave for 1 minute. Stop to stir. Add in 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips, then microwave for another minute.

Step 3

The marshmallows and chocolate chips will be mostly melted. Add in the cocoa powder and stir everything together to combine. The marshmallow mixture will be thick and chocolatey.

Step 4

Add in the cereal to the marshmallow mixture and stir together using a rubber scraper. Mixture will be thick and sticky.

Step 5

Working quickly, turn out the mixture into the prepared pan. Lightly spray your hands with non-stick spray and press the mixture firmly into the pan. Top the cereal treats with the remaining 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips.

Step 6

Let the treats cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting. Cut into 16 squares.
