Childhood Favorites Times 10!

While palling around in the kitchen last evening, I got the idea for this recipe.  About 2 weeks ago, my sister Terry had brought S'mores fixings by for the kids.  I already had several go- to ingredients for bake, no-bake and easily assembled sweet treats for pop-up occasions.  I felt awful about not having prepared the S'mores yet, and I was determined to  make it happen!  While gathering the ingredients, I remembered the kid's eating a bowl Rice Crispy's cereal and enjoying them for snack and remembered I had Marshmallow Creme.  LIGHTBULB!, why not combine the two for a wonderful double treat!  With a few simple steps, this recipe was born.  The end product tastes amazing and is incredibly easy to make.  Try this recipe and see what I mean, these squares are a double treat the kids, big and small , will really love!
S'more's Crispy Squares
3 tbsp. salted butter
1/2 bag large marshmallows
1/2 large bag Rice Krispies or Crispy rice cereal
4 sheets graham crackers, broken into small and medium pieces
1 chocolate bar, broken into tiny pieces
1 7 oz. container, marshmallow creme
cocoa powder for dusting
In a heavy bottomed pot over medium heat, melt butter.   Once butter starts to form small bubbles, add marshmallows.  Stir until melted and a few of the marshmallows still have a little form, this forms mallow pockets in the finished product.   Pour in crispies, graham crackers and chocolate.
Fold until well blended and all cereal are coated.
Press into buttered or non stick sprayed dish to about a 1 inch thickness.
Dust with cocoa powder.  Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to set.   Makes 12-16 squares.(rectangles in this pan!) :)
