When I'm in the mood for something sweet and chocolatey, I'll make these rice krispie bars. They are scrumptious! When it's time to add the chocolate chips, sometimes I'll add a 1/3 cup, (slightly heaping) and other times I'll add a 1/2 cup. The amount of chocolate chips you'd like to add, is totally up to you!
Chocolate Flavored Rice Krispie Bars
5 tablespoons butter
1-(10.5 ounce) bag miniature marshmallows
1/3 to 1/2 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips
7 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
Butter the inside of one 13x9x2-inch cake pan, then set the pan aside.
In a large stock-pot, melt the 5 tablespoons of butter over very low heat. (Whenever I make rice krispie bars, I use an 8-quart Teflon coated stock-pot.)
After the butter's melted in the pot, add the miniature marshmallows, and stir until the marshmallows have completely melted.
Once the marshmallows have completely melted, add the chocolate chips, and stir until the chips have melted through.
Remove pot from the heat, add the cereal, and stir until the cereal is evenly coated with the marshmallow mixture.
Press the marshmallow/cereal mixture into the buttered pan.
Let bars sit for 2-3 hours, before cutting them.
Yields: 24 bars
