Hot Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats Recipe

Well, it’s another snow day in the Northeast.
Dude, this weather is getting really sucky.
The kids are home from school again and while I love the little buggers, they have confiscated my itouch, played every board game known to man, built 13 different “forts” (with my good pillows) and gotten into no less than 427 arguments.  Now, like a good mom, I have plopped them down in front of the television to zone out to Scooby Doo reruns.
They were outside sledding earlier, but it always takes no less than 30 minutes to get them bundled up so they can go outside and play for 5.
And I didn’t mention that 22 of those 30 minutes were spent trying to solve the mystery of the missing glove.
I don’t understand how 1 glove can consistently go missing every time I need it.
What never fails, though, is when they come inside from their exhausting 3 minutes of play, they demand hot chocolate.
I am pretty sure that the whole “going outside to play in the snow” is just a carefully hatched scheme devised to get the hot chocolate that they know will inevitably be waiting for them upon re-entrance into the toasty, warm house.
Even I will admit that hot chocolate is a pretty redeeming factor of the snow day.
Chocolate, marshmallow, whipped cream…yes, that is a pretty spectacular beverage.
So since I can’t leave well enough alone, topped with my unusual obsession with cereal desserts I decided to give these a go…
Hot Chocolate Krispies
You’re welcome.

How to Make Hot Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats

Add in your hot chocolate powder right into the marshmallows.
Stir while continuing to cook over low heat until marshmallows are melted and chocolate is mixed in.
 Remove from heat.
Add in your 6 cups Cocoa Krispies.

Press that into your pan and add some more marshmallows!

 Let cool for 30 minutes and cut into squares.
Store air tight for up to 2 days.
Hope you have a great day, whether it’s snowing, raining, or bright and sunny…

I’ll be here in the 20 degree weather, chiseling the maple syrup off my itouch 🙂

What is your secret to getting the rice krispies mixed before starting to get cool? I always end up with marshmallow strings and have to microwave the mix to keep it warm enough until it’s all mixed. Also, do you grease your hands or spatula to push this mix into the pan?

Have you ever tried this with regular Rice Krispies? I love hot chocolate but I’m not into too much chocolate at once. Just wondering if it’s been done. Thanks!

Shucks I don’t have cocoa rice krispies, just the plain. I’m going to try it with that, but I love chocolate so I don’t know if this will satisfy me!

Oooh, more marshmallow and chocolate goodness!! Woohoo!!
I agree about the weather…totally sucky! And 20 degrees?! Lucky you. It has finally warmed up to 28 here today after days of single digit temps with wind chills below zero…too cold to let the little ones outside to play. Ah, well at least I had a few day of not having to search for the missing glove.
