Welcome to Day 2 of S’mores Week! Today we are making a classic treat with a S’mores twist! Rice Krispies Treats are perceived as a dessert for kids, however we all know adults love them too!
Look up there, that’s the speculoos I was talking about yesterday — speculoos in small print and COOKIE BUTTER in large print, so it will not be missed or mistaken!
What kind of marshmallow eater are you? A “I barely like fire to breathe on them” kind? Or a “it must be perfectly golden browned on all sides” kind? Or maybe you are one of those “it’s best when it is entirely engulfed in flames so it comes out charred”…
I am a “perfectly golden brown” kind of girl when it comes to my S’mores, but if I am just eating a roasted marshmallow on it’s own I like to burn it, eat off the charred outside and then toast the rest — so weird, I know 🙂
I bought this culinary blow torch off Amazon specifically for S’mores week! It’s tougher than it may seem to get a perfect golden brown on the marshmallows with the torch, so here on these S’mores Rice Krispies Treats we have some marshmallows for any kind of marshmallow eater!
If you don’t have a blow torch, not to worry, you can quickly broil the treats in the oven once you have covered the top with marshmallows, being careful not to let anything burn.
- 4 cups Rice Krispies
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (divided)
- 1 tbsp butter
- ½ cup speculoos
- 2½ cups mini marshmallows (divided)
- Add Rice Krispies and ¾ cup chocolate chips to a large bowl, set aside
- Grease a square 8X8 baking pan
- In a heavy bottomed sauce pan over low heat, melt butter and speculoos
- Once melted, mix in 2 cups of mini marshmallows, stir with a wooden spoon until entire mixture has melted together
- Pour mixture over Rice Krispies and chocolate, mix until all Rice Krispies are coated and start to form a ball
- Press mixture into baking pan, fill the whole pan in 1 even layer
- Refrigerate 1 hour
- Top with remaining ½ cup of mini marshmallows and ¼ cup chocolate chips
- Torch marshmallows using a culinary blow torch or put pan under broiler just until marshmallows are browned
- Cool completely
- Using a sharp knife, slice into bars
