Recipe Friday: Crispy S’mores Bars

Lately, Annalyn’s response to the question, “How does it taste?” is, “Nummy!”

And that is exactly how this new treat should be described: “Nummy!” Maybe even, “Nummy in my tummy.”

Then again, that might be silly.

Several weeks ago, I signed up for Kraft First Taste. It’s not exclusive; you just have to sign up. But according to Kraft, it’s “the best place to get the inside scoop on the latest Kraft products, be one of the first to try them, and tell us what you think.”

I don’t know about all that yet. But I do know that after I signed up, I started getting a monthly newsletter with “sneak peak” recipes. Including one for Crispy S’mores Bars.

When I mentioned last night on Facebook that I was going to make “s’mores rice krispy treats,” I immediately had people signing up to do a taste test.

Sorry, guys. But even though I can’t actually send a pan of these bars to each one of you, I can give you the recipe.

Crispy S’mores Bars

2 tbsp. butter
4 cups miniature marshmallows, divided
3 cups rice krispies (a.k.a. puffed rice cereal)
2 cups Teddy Grahams
2 squares semi-sweet chocolate, melted

Spray 9×13 pan with cooking spray. Melt butter and add 2 cups marshmallows. Stir constantly until completely melted. Remove from heat and mix in remaining marshmallows, cereal and Teddy Grahams. Press into pan. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Let stand one hour before serving – if you can!

Instead of the melted chocolate, I sprinkled milk chocolate chips on top. And . . . mmmm!

    It sounds like you should make these for next weekend! Just a thought. :)

    These is the kind of receipe that a 10 week pregnant lady does NOT need to see when she is still an hour away from lunch. They look absolutely delicious. I am thinking I am going to have to make them this weekend.

    DUDE!!!! I'm SO making those!

    They remind me of those other cookie bars — the ones I can't remember what they're called — but they're pretty much insane!!!

    I used to get that Kraft magazine. I don't get it anymore. I think I need to get online and get myself signed up.

    That looks so yummy! Thanks for passing on the recipe. I blogged about a yummy new recipe earlier in the week…

    Have a good weekend. :)

    Okay am I the only one who finds it totally unfair for bloggers to post such yummy goodness when they know we can't have any? Tease, tease. ;)

    Those do look delish. I am going to have to try them.

    Mmmmm – these sounds really yummy!! Thanks for sharing the recipe – though I would have liked it if you handed me a bar to try! :)

    "Nummy" gave me a chuckle. My mom says that word. :) I can't think of any new recipe or new food I've tried lately. How sad. That S'mores recipe sounds good, and I might try it the next time I get really depressed and need some comfort food, lol!

    Great. Now all I am going to be able to think about all day our these bars! They sound/look so good!

    You gotta be kidding me. *frantically searching cupboard for rice krispies*

      I know, right? How GOOD do those look? Just a quick tip, though. If you use the chocolate chips, make sure they melt a little bit. Otherwise, you’ll be finding smashed chocolate chips all over your kitchen for days!
