I love Crispy Treats even though they are kind of a pain to make. I wondered how it would work incorporating dark chocolate and it actually turned out quite well. I have to say that lining the baking dish with parchment paper makes all of the difference in the world.
1/2 Cup Butter
1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
20 Ounces Regular Size Marshmallows
10 Ounces Dark Chocolate Morsels
12 Cups Rice Cereal
In a large size sauce pan melt the butter over a low heat. Add the marshmallows and kosher salt. Continue to stir until the marshmallows have completely melted. This may take a while, but you don’t want to hurry the process by turning up the heat. Add the dark chocolate chips and stir until all of the chocolate has melted. You are going to need to stir like a maniac. Immediately remove from the heat and stir in the rice cereal. Coat the cereal well with the melted marshmallow mixture. Using a silicone spatula, press the mixture evenly into a large size baking pan that has either been greased with butter or lined with parchment paper. If the silicone spatula isn’t working well then tear off a piece of parchment paper and use that to press down the mixture. You will need to work quickly. Let cool completely and then cut into squares. Makes approximately 30 squares.
