Smore Krispie Treats


Smore Krispie Treats

1/2 cup butter
Heaping 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
5 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
5 cups crisped rice cereal
9 sheets graham crackers (yields 2 cups crumbs)
1 cup milk chocolate chopped or chips

Butter 9" square pan

Crush graham crackers to create crumbs.  Keep some pieces larger so you'll have bits of graham crackers to bite in to.

In a large bowl combine the rice cereal, graham crackers, and chocolate chips.

In a large pan melt the butter on medium heat.  The butter will melt, then foam, then turn clear golden and finally start to turn brown and smell nutty.  Stir frequently and don't take your eyes off the pot because once it starts to brown, it can burn quickly.  Once the butter has browned, turn off heat and stir in marshmallows and salt.  Stir until marshmallows have melted.

Add the marshmallows to the cereal mixture and stir to combine.  Press firmly into prepared pan and set aside to cool.  Cut, serve, and enjoy.
