Krispie Treat S’mores are a fun way to take your s’mores to the next level! Instead of graham crackers, use thin krispie treats for EXTRA marshmallow gooey-ness!
I partnered with Campfire® Marshmallows for this recipe. As always, thank you for continuing to support the brands that make Cookies and Cups possible. All opinions are my own.
Oh friends..today is FINALLY my kids last day of school!! While the school year has gone by in a (literal) blink, the last day felt like it would never come. I guess, I see so many people who have been out of school for almost a month now, but here in NJ our school year starts a little later, but also ends a little later too. Add to that snow days, etc and we’re almost in July when it finally ends.
But alas, it is upon us, and I am READY. As my kids have gotten a little older I have come to disliking school more as an adult than I ever did as a kid. It feels like there is so much SO MUCH that is required of our kids than ever before….from testing, to sports, to clubs, and a million other commitments. MAYBE it was the same when I was young, and I was just oblivious.
Yes, that’s probably it.
But in honor of summer, I am doing my first (I think?) S’mores recipe of the season, Krispie Treat S’mores! This is less a recipe, more of an assembly idea…but still pretty genius, if I do say so myself. I have no idea why it took me a million year to think of it. And if someone else already has, well…I’m extra late to the party.
Here it is: use KRISPIE TREATS instead of graham crackers for your s’more.
Has your brain exploded yet? How about now? NOW?
I mean USE KRISPIE TREATS INSTEAD OF GRAHAM CRACKERS! How have I never DONE THIS? I feel like I am basically the main source of krispie treat ideas on the web, and this has escaped me. I let you down, and I am so sorry.
It took a giant Campfire® Red, White, & Blue Roaster to spark creativity. You never know where an idea is going to come from!
I was sent a big box of Campfire® Marshmallows and with July 4th coming up soon, I knew I had to use these adorable, festive marshmallows! Campfire® Marshmallows are pretty much at the top of their game, continually coming up with new, and exciting products. I am ALL about marshmallow innovation.
So, with that said, this “recipe” is REALLY easy, and a total showstopper. All you have to do is make a large pan of krispie treats. You want the treats to be on the thin side, so your s’more isn’t too thick!
I found red, white, and blue cereal at the store as well…so cute! Allow the krispie treats to cool completely in the pan. You might even want to let them sit out uncovered a little longer than you normally would so they can firm up a little.
When you’re ready, roast your marshmallows and assemble your totally delicious, over the top, ooey-gooey s’mores!
Use milk chocolate, semi-sweet, or I bet white chocolate would be delicious paired with the Campfire® Red, White & Blue Roasters since they’re cherry, vanilla, and blueberry flavored!
A extra fun way to do smores…with krispie treats instead of graham crackers!
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 4 cups mini marshmallows
- 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
- 6 cups krispie cereal
- 10 large Campfire® Red, White & Blue Roasters Marshmallows
- 4-5 regular sized chocolate bars
- Line a jelly roll pan (15x10x1) with aluminum foil and lightly coat with nonstick spray. Set aside.
- In large saucepan heat the butter over low heat until melted. Add in the mini marshmallows and salt, stirring constantly until melted. Immediately remove the pan from the heat.
- Pour in krispie cereal, stir until evenly coated with marshmallow mixture.
- Press evenly into the prepared pan. I like to spray the back of a piece of parchment paper lightly with nonstick spray and use this to press the mixture down.
- Allow the krispie treats to cool completely before cutting them into squares.
I like to let my krispie treats sit uncovered for a few hours for this recipe before cutting. When they dry out just slightly it helps create a better base for the s’more. Also, pressing the mixture into the pan compactly helps with this too.
Store airtight for up to 3 days.
