Cocoa Krispie Treats

This always delicious classic childhood treat gets a bit of an upgrade with additional chocolate!

1 bag marshmallows
3 Tbsp butter
6 C cocoa krispies
1 jar Nutella
Optional: melting chocolate/candy, food dye, flavoring


Melt the butter (I prefer to do this in a large microwaveable bowl).

Add in marshmallows and microwave until large and puffy, about 1 minute.

dsc03479Add in at least half a jar of Nutella, the full jar if you are feeling indulgent! Stir thoroughly to avoid swirls (unless you want swirls)

Stir in cocoa krispies. Be sure to mix this really well – all the good gooey stuff tends to stick to the bottom.

Spread in a flat pan, and probably a thinner layer than usual. You may need two pans.dsc03482

Let the mix dry, then use a cookie cutter to cut out desired shapes.

Decorate by dipping in melted chocolate, perhaps flavored with cinnamon?
