I have a love/hate relationship with Labor Day Weekend. Love, the long weekend – any long weekend. Hate, the end of summer. Love, the start of college football. Hate, that it is still 100 degrees yet there is pumpkin spice every where we look.
This is a recipe that I have made a handful of times through the years and always only for a celebration of sort. My friends will certainly recognize it. It combines my two VERY favorite sweets, Rice Krispie Treats and S’mores.
S’mores Rice Krispie Treats
5 c. Kellog’s Rice Krispies*
4 c. Golden Graham’s
4 Tbs. Butter (1/2 of a stick; save the butter wrapper*)
1 package of Jet-Puff Marshmallows (10-12 oz. for melting, save a cup and a half for later)
1/4 c. semi sweet chocolate chips
IF you can find miniature marshmallows, like the kind that go in hot chocolate add them!
I always make my rice krispie treats in the microwave in a big glass bowl. It makes these so fast and makes for much easier clean up. Microwave marshmallows and butter for 3 minutes, stirring after 2.
Combine both cereals with melted butter and marshmallows .
Let cool for 3-4 minutes.
Add chocolate and extra marshmallows.
Put mixture in an 11×15 baker. Now use your butter “wrapper” for greasing your pan then pressing your treats in place.
There is really not a right or a wrong way to make these. They will be a hit regardless. But I do recommend name brand rice krispies and marshmallows, I have tried to go grocery store brand once for rice krispie treats, and it was absolutely not worth the less than one dollar savings.
Happy Labor Day!!! Enjoy!
