Raise your hand if you can remember many a summer night when you were little spent hunched over a crackling bonfire, hot face on one side, flaming marshmallow at the end of a long stick on the other?

That’s right. Toasted, schmoasted – team char!

If you were lucky, someone would be standing nearby with a graham cracker half topped with Hershey chocolate squares waiting to scrape the molten ‘mallows from your stick with another graham cracker, handing it over so you could feast. Sticky fingers and face soon followed. Ahhhh, those were the days!

As an adult, the excuse to strike up a bonfire seems harder to come by (although, check this baby out from a recent friend-gathering!) so making s’mores indoors is often the best way to crush that summertime craving. That’s when S’more Rice Krispie Treats come in handy!

Double-decker Rice Krispie Treats smoosh the classic bonfire combo of sticky marshmallow, sweet chocolate, and crunchy graham cracker in this decadent, over the top treat. These are such a fun and ridiculous take on the standard s’more!

Ben and I actually have a little fire pit in the backyard of our new house, so I bought the ingredients to make s’mores for when we had our friends and their kids over last week. Well the call of the basketball hoop out front won over striking up a roaring fire after dinner, so I had all the ingredients on hand to make these sweet treats this week. I ate three, cough, in one sitting, cough, then sent the rest of ‘em to work with Ben. I could have easily polished off the entire batch!

Start by making the classic rice krispie treat layers. Melt 3 Tablespoons butter in a large pot then add 10oz mini marshmallows. I used large ‘mallows, because my mini ones were stale, and they worked just fine. Just took a bit longer to melt is all.

Stir until the marshmallows are smooth then take the pot off the heat and add 6 cups rice krispies cereal. Stir, stir, stir!

Working quickly press half the rice krispie treats into the bottom of a nonstick sprayed 8×8 pan. I spray the bottom of a cup to help press it into an even layer.

Next spread 1 cup melted semi-sweet chocolate on top.

I melted the chocolate before making the rice krispie treats so it was ready for me, then zapped it for an extra 20 seconds since it had cooled down a bit.

Next, layer on 9 graham cracker halves (4-1/2 graham cracker sheets, y’all.)

Then spread 3-1/2oz marshmallow fluff on top.

I also spooned this into a microwave-safe bowl before making the rice krispie treats, then zapped it for 20 seconds right before spreading.

Spoon the remaining rice kristpie treats on top then press again with a nonstick sprayed glass to achieve an even layer.

Topping time! The S’more Rice Krispie Treats are perfectly amazing on their own, but I thought a nice topping of extra melted chocolate and crumbled graham crackers would really take ‘em over the top.

Mission accomplished!

Let the S’more Rice Krispie Treats set for 30 minutes (or longer) then slice into 16 squares with a very sharp knife. Dish, and devour!

Adapted from Real Simple Magazine

Ingredients: 
3 Tablespoons butter
10oz mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
3-1/2oz marshmallow fluff
6 sheets graham crackers (12 halves), divided

Place marshmallow fluff in a microwave-safe bowl then set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add marshmallows then stir until smooth. Add Rice Krispies then stir until well combined. Working quickly, scoop half of the mixture into the prepared baking dish then press into an even layer (I spray the bottom of a glass with nonstick spray to help press.)

Microwave marshmallow fluff for 20 seconds then spread on top of graham crackers.
  3. Spoon remaining rice krispie treats on top of marshmallow fluff layer then press lightly to smooth. Melt remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips with vegetable oil in a microwave-safe bowl in 20 second increments, stirring between increments, until melted and smooth. Drizzle on top of rice krispie treats. Crumble 3 remaining graham crackers halves then sprinkle on top. Allow rice krispie treats to set for 30 minutes before slicing into 16 squares with a sharp knife and serving.

Chewy, gooey, sticky, sweet – all the fantastic s’more flavor, just kicked up a few thousand notches!

    I think I’m going to bring these with on family vacation in Okoboji this weekend. I’m sure the whole family will love them!

  2. Katie 07.17.2013

    Those look delicious, but I was thinking as I was reading them — what if, instead of Rice Krispies, you used Honey Grahams cereal?!?! I’d probably eliminate the graham cracker layer then. Hmm… I think I might have to test this theory out myself!

    • Iowa Girl Eats 07.17.2013

      I was thinking that too, so I did some research, and apparently they get tooth-chipping hard if you use the graham cereal. Maybe a blend of the two would work?!

      • Jamie 07.18.2013

        Psst! I grew up eating Indoor S’mores that use golden grahams, skipping the rice krispie treats altogether. Really yummy, but I’m a krispie treat fan so I have to try these now. = )

  3. Angie 07.17.2013

    These are perfect for summer, love!

  4. Oh yeah. I could get in board with these.

  10. Tieghan 07.17.2013

    Have Mercy (was watching full house last night!)!! These are amazing!

  11. Kristi 07.17.2013

    And here I have been thinking all my life that there were just plain rice crispy treats. I feel jipped with all these combos I see.

  12. I don’t even like s’mores but those look delish

  13. As if Rice Krispies weren’t delish enough you go and cram some S’more in there…BRILLIANT!! Must eat all the bars!! Yum!

  14. Amazing!! Perfect summer treat.

  15. Lindsey 07.17.2013

    I’m a s’mores kinda girl through and through. I am totally loving all the new twists on the summer treat and these rice krispies are no different. I may have indulged in some s’more poptarts this morning…I just couldn’t help myself, I mean this 90 degree weather is just too hot for a bonfire.

  16. Kari 07.17.2013

    My mom used to make something similar to this except she used Golden Grahams cereal. SO GOOD! I think my hubby would like your version better tho!

  17. Melissa 07.17.2013

    Wow, that is quite possibly one of the best treats I have seen in awhile! It looks so yummy and I LOVE all the ingredient!

  18. Andrea 07.17.2013

    I’ve been following your blog for a while now and have made several of your recipes. I finally wanted to comment to say that they are always amazing! I’m pregnant right now too so I will definitely be making these when I get a craving for something sweet.

  19. These are SO fun! Love the twist on traditional s’mores in these Krispie treats!

  20. Oh Em Gee… You’re killing me Smalls. Now I’m gonna have to whip up a batch of these suckers and sit down with the kiddos to watch The Sandlot (our favorite summer time movie).

  21. Gabriella 07.17.2013

    Yum!! Amazing combo. I made a s’more dessert a couple of weeks ago and it was incredibly indulgent! My kinda dessert! I love your blog by the by ;)

  22. erica 07.17.2013

  26. Cristina 07.17.2013

    Wow, what a great idea. Makes so much sense. I bet it’s delicious! I used to love making homemade rice krispies as a kid, and then I guess I stopped. I could totally go for one right now.

  27. Sadye 07.17.2013

    This looks great! This is a serious(ish) question — are they too tall to fit in one’s mouth, or is it just the angle of the photography?

  28. Can I come live with you? Or at least be your neighbor? You make the best food ever!! ;)

  29. These are totally over the top, I love it! If Ben’s coworkers don’t finish them, I will send you my address ;-)

  30. Lindsay 07.17.2013

  31. I’m team toasted:0)

    I love these double decker treats! Great idea!!!!

  32. Mmmm, I haven’t had s’mores in forever. This looks like a great way to get a fix!

  33. I am wondering how my mouth would fit around that baby. Don’t worry I am sure I will find a way.

  34. For the Fourth of July this year my family gathered at our cabin up in northern Wisconsin to celebrate…and we had s’mores galore! The way you describe it in the beginning of your post is picture perfect. The rice krispie take on the classic campfire treat sounds amazing too :)

  35. Well, don’t those just look AWFUL! ;) I was looking to make something for Mr. B’s canoe trip this weekend….these look perfect!

  36. Amanda O. 07.17.2013

    Have you ever tried the butterfinger rice krispies?! DELICIOUS!

  37. Ruth Vallejos 07.17.2013

    Has any one played with spices in the treats? It would be cool to have a little more of that ginger/cinnamon kick in the krispies to play off the ooey gooey goodness. And a little salt, too, to play off the sweetness and give it a caramel tone. Hmm. I must experiment…

  38. Liz 07.17.2013

    Very yummy. Thank you. Have a good evening.

  39. Sarita 07.17.2013

    Oh makes my teeth hurt looking at them!! So yumo! I have also charred marshmallows using bunner on the gas stove! I’m tem char for sure! Good luck with mr baby!!

  40. Stephanie Hager 07.17.2013

    A perfect snack, just in time for RAGBRAI!!! Although I doubt they make it to past the first day :)

  41. Oh my heavens these look fantastic! We have a fire pit too but we never light it. I actually thought about it so we could make s’mores this summer but now with this recipe I’m not sure I need to :)

  42. Love this twist on rice krispie treats!! S’mores anything is my kinda dessert :)

  43. Those look incredible! We don’t have that marshmallow creme here in Australia yet but I hope they plan on bringing it out.

  44. Pat. Micklewright 07.18.2013
