On a hot summer day – the last thing you want to do is start the oven to do some baking. These treats are so easy to make, and with a little arm muscle, even the kids can do them! My personal favorite is when chocolate is added – like I’ve done!

Chocolate Krispie Squares

unsalted butter = 3 tablespoons
marshmallows = full bag of large marshmallows
vanilla = 1 tablespoon
chocolate (milk or dark) = chopped 5 oz or more if you like
rice krispies = 6 cups

1. melt butter and marshmallows in a pot over medium heat
2. add chocolate and stir until slightly melted
3. add cereal and stir until well mixed
4. pour into a pan (size depends on you – if you want thin or thicker squares)
5. sprinkle more chopped chocolate if you have any left on top
6. let cool and cut into squares
