There is something so nostalgic about s’mores. Just the thought of them conjures up memories from my childhood, melting marshmallows and chocolate with my family.
Nowadays, s’mores aren’t simply a campfire delicacy. As evidenced by many late nights perusing Pinterest, there are endless ways to make one of my favorite childhood treats. There’s s’mores ice cream, donuts, brownies, cookies… and the list goes on. So, I got to thinking… why not combine two of my favorite childhood desserts (s’mores + rice krispies treats) to make the ultimate s’mores hybrid?
As with any dessert, I enlisted the help of my favorite baker Lauren Lowstan. Luckily for me, Miss Lowstan can whip up any kind of sweet treat you can imagine. So, we got together and made the dessert of my childhood dreams.
Ladies and gentleman, I’d like to introduce you to Rice Krispies Treat S’mores…
Rice Krispies Treat S’mores
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 6 cups mini marshmallows
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- ¼ cup graham cracker crumbs
- 8 ounces melting chocolate (we used Ghirardelli)
- ½ jar marshmallow fluff
- parchment paper
- baking sheet (12”x16″)
- 2-inch circular cookie cutter
- Melt the butter and marshmallows in a microwavable bowl. Add cereal and mix to combine.
- Pour the mixture on a baking sheet and press down firmly in the pan. Let this sit out for 30 minutes (or 10 minutes in fridge). You want the Rice Krispies to be fairly thin.
- Cut the Rice Krispies treats into circles.
- Spoon some marshmallow fluff onto the middle of half of the circles, then sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over all the fluff and circles.
- Top each marshmallow circle with another Rise Krispies circle.
- Melt chocolate in a microwavable bowl and dip each sandwich halfway into the chocolate once melted. Place on parchment paper to harden.
- Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on each sandwich where the line of chocolate ends and enjoy!
And there you have it! I just love this fun new take on a classic campfire treat. Thank you again to the lovely Lauren Lowstan for showing us how to make these delicious desserts.
