"A little bit of chocolate and cocoa goes a long way to give Rice Krispies treats a scrumptious new twist," says Gretchen Hickman of Galva, Illinois. "I especially like these bars because they are crisp, not sticky. They disappear in a flash whenever I serve them."

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 cups crisp rice cereal

Directions

  1. In a heavy saucepan over low heat, melt butter and chocolate; stir until smooth. Stir in the marshmallow creme and cocoa; cook and stir until smooth. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla and cereal. Pat into a 13-in. x 9-in. pan coated with cooking spray. Cool before cutting.
