Nourishing Mondays: Smore Cereal Treats

Reported by foodem.com, the online wholesale food marketplace-

This past weekend was my little brother’s high school graduation party. He loves, loves, loves Rice Krispy treats, so for dessert no other choice would do, I decided to make him a variety of his favorite homemade treats.

Rice Krispy Treats are an instant crowd-pleaser, so I know this would be an even better dessert than the typical cake. However, if you buy them pre-made from the store, they can be loaded with chemicals and preservatives and overly processed.

They are so easy to make and require only a few ingredients, so I immediately knew I had to make them for myself. Also when homemade you have the freedom to experiment with flavor combinations for yourself.

For this party I made six different types of treats. They were all delicious and got rave reviews! But by the end of the night it was clear that one treat had bested the rest of them. There weren’t even crumbs left over to prove their former existence. Today I am giving you the recipe to this winning dessert. Feel free to make it your own and experiment with other cereals or add-ins. I promise your guests will love them and the ingredients and effort are minimal.

Smore Cereal Treats
¼ cup butter
1 bag mini marshmallows plus 1 cup
1 box Golden Graham cereal
1 ½ cups chocolate chips

Melt the butter in a large pot on high heat. Then remove from heat and add in the bag of marshmallows. Coat the marshmallows with butter and return to the high heat. Melt the marshmallows, stirring constantly. Once completely melted take the marshmallows off the heat and stir into the cereal.

Once completely incorporated add in half of the chocolate chips. Pour into a greased 9 X 14 pan quickly. The longer they cool, the harder they get so make sure to get them into the pan right away. Sprinkle the remaining marshmallows and chocolate chips on top. Wait an hour for them to cool, and then cut and serve!

Enjoy and stay tuned for more delightful Nourishing Monday recipes.
