Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats

Jump to Recipe

Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats are hands down some of the most delectable treats I have ever eaten. Not to mention super easy and a total crowd pleaser. They are almost like regular homemade rice krispie treats but the addition of chocolate chips and cocoa powder takes these treats over the top and boy are they satisfying.

A few weeks ago at Blogher Food I finally got to meet the fabulous women behind Three Many Cooks. Omg. They are fabulous!! And so is their new book Perfect One-Dish Dinners: All You Need for Easy Get-Togethers by Pam Anderson of Three Many Cooks. And the best part about these recipes besides the fact that they are delicious, is that they are all made in 1 pot!! Can we say total time saver on dishes!! Pam makes cooking and entertaining, no matter what day of the week, a pleasure as she pairs appetizers, main courses and desserts in her latest cookbook.

This past week I decided to throw a little one dish dinner party for some of my friends here in LA! I made numerous dishes from their book including the Beef Carnitas (amazing), guacamole (most favorite dish on the entire planet) and ceviche (who doesn't love an awesome ceviche!) ... and to polish the meal off I treated my guests to these Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats. Holy cow. Life changing deliciousness was the result. You absolutely have to make these immediately!!

And... to make that task super easy, I am giving away 3 copies of Perfect One-Dish Dinners: All You Need for Easy Get-Togethers

Ingredients
  

  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 16- ounce package mini marshmallows
  • 5 cups rice krispies
  • cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Spray an 8-inch square metal baking pan with cooking spray. Line the pan with parchment paper and then spray the top of the parchment paper again. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet melt the butter over medium high heat and add the marshmallows and continue to stir until melted. Add the cocoa powder and whisk until smooth.

Notes

I think this version is so much more chocolatey than simply using cocoa flavored cereal!

  1. How many servings does this make. I need to know for a project of mine as soon as possible and it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  2. Made your Chocolate Rice Crispy recipe........ YUMMY.
    Because of the many "sweet tooth", here in our home~I made the batch a bit bigger
    "Fantastically Yummilicious" (new terminology).
    Thank you

  3. So, I guess if I already have chocolate Rice Krispies cereal I can replicate this entire recipe, just not add the cocoa and it should turn out almost the same, right? Thanks! 🙂

  4. Fantastic, thank you. I haven't had a Rice Krispie square for years. Thank you, thank you! I'm off to the supermarket for a box of Rice Krispies right after I hit submit.

  5. I love rice krispie treats (made some this weekend) so I definitely want to try this. My favorite one dish meal is probably just soup that I make out of random things in my house.

  6. I love this cookbook! I checked it out from the library and would love to own it! I made the Coq au Vin Blanc, the Green Chicken Enchiladas, and the Cassoulet. All were easy and delicious. Love it!

  7. My (and our family's" ) favorite one dish meal is --- Chili Mac! Easy and quick when you don't have time to cook and you are really hungry!
