Hot Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats


The cute gal at Cookies and Cups came up with this brilliant idea. I adore Rice Krispie treats and now I love them even more thanks to these hot chocolate ones! They are so yummy, sweet and chewy! Try 'em out!

Hot Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats
Adapted from Cookies and Cups

6 cups cocoa krispies
1/4 cup butter
1 (10.5 oz) bag of mini marshmallows, plus 4 cups divided.  (About a bag and a half total)
6 T. hot chocolate mix
cooking spray

Spray 9x9 square pan with cooking spray. (I didn't have a 9X9, so I used a 9x13. It worked great, they just weren't as fat/tall). Set dish aside. Melt butter in large saucepan over LOW heat. When butter is melted add your bag of mini marshmallows and then hot chocolate powder. Stir while continuing to cook over low heat until marshmallows are melted and chocolate is mixed in. Remove from heat. Add in your 6 cups Cocoa Krispies. Stir until mixed well. Now add in 2 cups mini marshmallows. Stir until marshmallows are evenly distributed throughout the krispie mixture. Pour into prepared pan. Press evenly into pan with the back of a spoon sprayed with cooking spray. Immediately spread remaining 2 cups mini marshmallows onto the krispies and press into the mix. Let cool for 1 hr and cut into squares. Store air tight for up to 2 days.
