Hot Chocolate Krispie Treats

hot choc rice krispie treats 004

Last minute Memorial Day barbeque last night.  My daughter Courtney called and said that she and her husband Jaren wanted to come over for a barbeque so we barbequed some steaks and made our favorite Cheesy Ranch Potatoes.  We cut up some watermelon and then I realized there were no treats!  The horror!  So I went to Pinterest and found this yummy looking recipe and threw these together at the last minute and they were delic!  The recipe comes from a blog called “Crazy for Crust”.

3 tablespoons butter

10 ounces marshmallows

2 packets powdered hot chocolate mix

6 cups Rice Krispies

1/2 cup Mallow Bits (didn’t have any of these)

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

1  Line a 9 x 13″ pan with foil and spray it with cooking spray.  Measure out cereal into a large bowl and set aside.

2  Place butter and marshmallows in a large, microwavable bowl.  Melt for 1 1/2 – 2 minutes on high, stirring every 30 seconds until they are melted.  (I like the way marshmallows melt on the stove better than in the microwave so that’s how I do it.)  Stir in the hot chocolate packets.  Stir in the cereal and pour into prepared pan.

3  Working quickly, spray your hands with cooking spray and carefully press treats into pan.  Sprinkle immediately with Mallow Bits and mini chocolate chips, pressing lightly to secure them to the top of the treats.  Let cool before cutting into squares.
