S’mores Crispy Rice Treats

Prep Time: 10 minutes plus
Bake Time: 5 minutes
Cool Time: 45 minutes
Makes: 9×13-inch pan or 24 cut squares


Graham Crust:

  • 18 graham crackers, finely crushed
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup butter, melted

Chocolate layer:

  • 1½ cups chocolate chips
  • ½ tsp. coconut oil

Crispy Rice layer:

  • ¼ cup butter
  • 6 cups mini marshmallows, divided
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 5 cups crispy rice cereal

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9×13-inch baking pan with parchment paper, set aside. In a large bowl, mix together finely crushed graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter until fully combined. Firmly and evenly press the crust mixture onto the bottom of the lined baking pan. (Tip: Use the bottom of a flat measuring cup to press the crust onto the pan to help make it compact and even.) Once the crust is in place, bake for 5 minutes. After baking, set aside to cool.

Step 2: Prepare the ingredients for the crispy rice layer by separately measuring out the ingredients and setting them aside. Next, prepare the chocolate layer by adding the chocolate chips and coconut oil to a microwave-safe bowl. Melt the chocolate mixture in the microwave for 20-second intervals, stirring the chocolate between each interval until it is fully melted. Once melted, pour the chocolate onto the graham crust and gently smooth it around evenly until the crust is completely covered. Set aside.

Step 3: Separate and set aside 1 cup of the mini marshmallows for the crispy rice layer. In a large saucepan, add the butter and the remaining 5 cups of marshmallows and melt over low/medium heat on the stovetop. Stir frequently to prevent the ingredients from burning. Once melted, remove the pan from the heat and add the vanilla, crispy rice cereal and remaining marshmallows and stir together until fully combined.

Step 4: Pour the crispy rice mixture over the chocolate layer in the baking pan and spread out as evenly as possible. Press the crispy rice mixture evenly onto the chocolate layer. (Tip: use the inside of a butter wrapper to press the crispy rice layer on to prevent it from sticking on your hands.) If desired, top the S’mores Crispy Rice Treats with extra graham cracker crumbs and mini chocolate chips.

Step 5: Once the chocolate layer is fully set (about 45 minutes), use the parchment paper to lift the crispy rice treats out of the pan for easy cutting. Use a sharp knife to cut into 24 squares, then serve.
