Okay, okay. So they’re just Rice Krispie squares with chocolate chips. But they still taste quite s’morey, what with their chocolate, marshmallowy crunch. Plus they’re much easier to pack for a mid-afternoon snack.
1/4 cup butter or margarine
40 big fat marshmallows
2 tsp vanilla
6 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup mini dark chocolate chips
Grease a 9×13 glass pan; set aside.
In a large, microwaveable bowl, nuke the butter until it is completely liquified.
Drop the marshmallows into the butter, tossing gently to coat.
Add the vanilla and zap until the marshmallows have blown up and gotten nice and soft.
Add the cereal to the melted marshmallows, stirring to distribute evenly.
Pour in the chocolate chips and work them through with as little stirring as possible – you don’t want them to melt and blend completely.
Wet your hands and press the cereal mixture into the prepared pan. Once it is all pressed smooth, put it in the fridge to set for at least an hour before serving.
To serve, cut into squares with a wet knife.
