These s'mores rice krispies are the perfect snack to make (indoors!) when your're itching for s'mores but don't want the hassle of making a camp fire. They're soft and chewy and tastes just like s'more, but in rice krispie form!
36marshmallow, regular size for garnish (about 1 bag)
3barHershey's chocolate, for garnish (36 smaller pieces)
Prepare a 9x9 pan lined with parchment paper and lightly greased with oil or butter.
In a dutch oven or large pot over medium heat, melt the butter with marshmallows while stirring occasionally. Once everything is nicely melted and homogenous, remove the pot from heat.
Pour in the Rice Krispie cereal and quickly stir to coat the cereal evenly in the melted marshmallow.
Transfer half of the rice krispies to the prepared 9x9 pan and spread it out to cover the entire surface. Sprinkle half of the mini chocolate chips across the top and layer it with sheets of graham crackers. Give it a gentle but firm press to adhere the crackers to the rice krispies.*Make sure to not compact the rice krispies too much or it'll become hard instead of soft and chewy.*
Spread the remaining rice krispie treats on top of the layer of graham crackers and sprinkle the remaining mini chocolate chips on top. Gently pat down the chocolate chips to adhere them to the rice krispies.Let the rice krispies cool at room temperature for at least 20 minutes or 1 hour before cutting.
Once the rice krispies are set, remove it from the pan and cut it evenly into 36 even pieces (6x6). Top each piece with a regular size marshmallow. Torch the marshmallow until golden brown. Stick a piece of Hershey chocolate in the marshmallows and enjoy!
An alternative method to torching the marshmallows is to line the rice krispies with the marshmallow on top on a sheet pan. Then, broil the marshmallows at 500F, on the 2nd rack from the top, for 20-25 seconds or until golden brown. Each oven is different, so keep an eye on the marshmallows!
If you prefer your chocolate melty and gooey like a real S'more, stick them the oven at 350F for 5-10 seconds or at 500F for 5 seconds. We lightly torched our Hershey bars briefly and they were gooey but maintain the Hershey bar appearance.
