S'Mores Rice Krispie Squares

When I say camping, what do you think of?  I bet S’mores was high on that list!  A camping tradition for sure… 

And when I say children, fun desserts, and easy to make…might Rice Krispies Squares come to mind?  My boys all love them, and growing up, I always loved when my Mom made them too. 

So the other day, I was wanting some Rice Krispies Squares, and I was also craving S’mores.  So I figured, there must be a way to combine them.  A little Pinterest search and bang, I found a recipe that met my wish list…and more…it also had Nutella!  Score!  

Here is the recipe I used:

Nutella S’Mores Rice Krispies Squares
Nutella S'mores Rice Krispies Squares | Addicted to Recipes
½ cup salted butter
40 regular sized marshmallows
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
5 cups Rice Krispies
3.5 oz chocolate chips
¼ cup Nutella 

Butter the base and sides of a 13x9 baking dish (I used glass). 

In a large saucepan, melt the butter.  Add in the marshmallows and melt – stirring often.   When the marshmallows are all melted, remove from heat and add in the graham cracker crumbs and rice krispies.  Mix until well combined.  Scoop the mixture into the prepared baking dish, and spread to fill the dish.  Even out as best as you can. 

Put the chocolate chips and Nutella into a small bowl.  Melt in the microwave – heat in short intervals (approximately 15 seconds) – stir after each interval.  Once melted and combined, thinly and evenly spread the chocolate mixture over the top of the base.  Cool and all chocolate to set before slicing into bars. 

This was a great alternative to the usual Rice Krispie treat.   3/4 of our family loved this!  (the toddler wasn’t too impressed, but hey, he isn’t even 2 yet!).
