Hot Cocoa Rice Krispie Treats

Since apparently it will never be spring in Ohio, I figured I would share another "winter-y" recipe.  Anything that involves hot cocoa is good in my book!  These are like hyped up rice krispie treats so just beware...they're addicting!

  • 6 cups cocoa krispies
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 (10.5oz.) bag of mini marshmallows + 2-3 extra cups 
  • 2-3 packets hot cocoa mix (I used the dutch chocolate)
  • sheet of parchment paper

How to Make:
  1. Spray a 9x11 baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a large pot over low heat.
  3. Once butter is melted, add in your bag of mini marshmallows and packets of hot cocoa.  Stir until marshmallows are melted.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Add in your 6 cups of cereal and stir until combined.
  6. Now add in about half of your extra marshmallows and stir gently until they are evenly distributed throughout your mixture.
  7. Pour your mixture into your prepared baking pan.
  8. Spray a piece of parchment paper or wax paper with your nonstick cooking spray and gently push the mixture into your pan, flattening the top.
  9. Spread remaining mini marshmallows on top and gently press into the mixture.
  10. Let cool for about 30 minutes before cutting and serving.
