S’mores Rice Krispie Treats

It’s starting to feel a bit like summer. And by this, I mean I am boggled down with projects, papers, exams, and stress.
Summer is long walks in the woods with bug-spray amply applied, trips to Maine for fresh lobster, weekends spent on the beach, thunderstorms rattling the house, humidity blowing up my hair, breathing in the night air, eating fresh strawberries, biking to the store instead of driving, and of course, s’mores made on a fire pit.I don’t have a fire pit with me in my college-owned housing (shame), but I can make s’mores in the microwave if I’m desperate. This is not the same thing, of course, as a melted, toasted, perfectly charred marshmallow sandwiched between chocolate and graham crackers, made on a hot summer night. I decided that if I can’t have my s’mores like I do in the summer, then I’ll at least take microwaved s’mores up a notch and make S’mores Rice Krispie Treats. My housemates gobbled these up in one night. Addicting, delicious, almost-as-good-as-the-real-thing bites of goodness.

Smore’s Rice Krispie Treats

3 cups mini marshmallows

1 Tbs butter

2 tsp vanilla

3 cups Rice Krispies cereal

1 cup Graham Crackers, original or honey flavored, coarsely chopped

1 cup milk chocolate chips

Microwave marshmallows, butter and vanilla in a bowl until the marshmallows begin to soften, or about one minute. Stir mixture and microwave for another minute until fully melted. Add the Rice Krispies to marshmallow mix, then graham cracker pieces and chocolate chips. Press into a greased 8″x8″ pan. Allow to cool for 30 minutes. Cut into squares.
