These Rice Krispie Chocolate Squares are made by melting butter and marshmallows and mixing in rice krispies and chocolate chips.
Rice Krispie treats were always my favorite dessert as a kid. Something about melted marshmallows and that nice rice krispie crunch is everything I never knew I needed. Everybody loves rice krispie treats, and everyone loves chocolate, so I thought, why not combine them? I can honestly say this combination is one of the best you will ever have. It requires minimal ingredients, minimal effort, and so fun to make with your kids.
You'll only need a few simple ingredients to make this. The exact measurements are listed in the recipe card below. Here's an overview of what you'll need:
- Rice Krispie Cereal
- Chocolate chips

In a large saucepan on low heat, add the butter and wait for it to melt. Add marshmallows and stir until melted.
Remove from heat and add the crispy rice cereal as well as the crumbled chocolate.
Mix until well coated.
Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with parchment paper or lightly grease the pan. Add the mixture onto the pan and spread. Gently press down into the pan.
Allow to set for 1 hour at room temperature.
Cut into two inch squares and enjoy!
Butter: I love using salted butter, but you can use unsalted and add some flaky salt on top of them to enhance the flavors.
Marshmallows: You can buy the jet puffed marshmallows or the small ones, as long as it is the same amount in ounces.
Rice Krispies: You can use Rice Krispie cereal or even the generic brand that they sell at the grocery store. Both of them will work.
Chocolate: Chocolate chips are always great. You can use dark or milk chocolate. I love using Hershey’s chocolate and cutting them up in little pieces with a knife.
Cooking is a chance to be creative! Have fun with it and feel free to make your own variation. Feel free to add these to your Rice Krispie Chocolate Squares:

Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. Stone bakeware takes longer to heat up than metal pans, and also retain heat for longer, which could make the recipe more watery, or burnt on the outsides.

This will be good in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, or frozen for up to three months.
If you prefer, you can microwave the butter and marshmallows together until melted instead of using the saucepan.Print
