We made these sticky smores rice krispy treats one day when I didn’t want to turn the oven on. BUT I was yearning for something chocolatey with a bit of a crunch. They hit the spot. (originally published 9/17, affiliate links present)

My oldest has made marshmallow squares herself, and those are always good. However when you want the classic flavors of marshmallow s’mores but don’t have a firepit, these do the trick!

This is just one of our favorite Smores dessert recipes.

Chocolate Rice Krispy Treats

These do the trick when you want something crispy but chocolate is a must too. Of course you could just use chocolate rice krispies instead of the “plain” type too for an over the top choco flavor!

This is what you will need to make this easy no bake dessert:

  • Rice Krispy cereal
  • Marshmallows
  • Butter
  • Graham cracker crumbs
  • Chocolate bars
    • or semi sweet chocolate chips melt really well too

I am sure you have made traditional marshmallow squares. You start with those though I use a square smaller pan rather than spreading them thinner into a 13×9 which they recommend.

They stay together better and cut easier I find. I break up milk chocolate bars and melt them in the microwave in 30 second intervals until they are melted and smooth. Usually 1 minute is all that is needed for this brand.

Mini marshmallows and graham cracker crumbs (or larger pieces) on top and you’re set!

To make the chocolate nice and solid so they cut smoothly and don’t smear and get all over everything I stick the whole thing in the fridge for about an hour after I’ve made it to solidify it well.

  • They look real pretty cut into nice squares and put on a pretty plate if you are taking a treat somewhere too.

Especially during the summertime when s’mores are on your mind, this is an easy way to satisfy your cravings without having to start a campfire.

Time needed: 20 minutes.

Chocolate Rice Krispy Treats

  1. Melt

    Spray inside of a large saucepan with non stick cooking spray. Melt the butter over stove until melted

    Add bag of marshmallows stirring constantly until completely melted. At the same time measure out cereal and have it ready inside a large bowl.

  2. Prepare

    Once marshmallows are melted, quickly remove from heat and pour mixture over cereal in a bowl. Mix well immediately. 

    Spray square 8×8 baking pan with non stick spray. Spoon marshmallow mixture into pan and gently press down with a piece of parchment paper until top is flat and even across the pan. 

  3. Topping

    Break up and add chocolate bars into small pieces and microwave at 30 second intervals stirring each time. Do this until it’s nicely melted and smooth (usually 1 minute total). 

    Pour over the top of your rice krispies cereal treats and smooth until chocolate is the same thickness across the top. 

    Immediately sprinkle on mini marshmallows and sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on top of those so everything sticks nicely. 

  4. Cool

    Put baking dish in fridge for about an hour so chocolate can harden. Can just leave at room temperature but they won’t get as stiff. Cut into squares.
