Kids and adults alike can attest to enjoying Rice Krispie cereal cakes made with the crunchy breakfast puffed cereal topped with melted marshmallows. However baker and blogger Oh Bite It recently took Rice Krispie squares to the next level by infusing them with hot chocolate beverage flavors. This recipe is decadent, rich and a hybrid of two popular comfort foods.
As if Rice Krispie squares didn't have enough marshmallows inside them already, this Hot Chocolate Krispie Treats recipe takes the sweetness to the next level by adding more, cocoa powder and lots of chocolate. The base of the dessert is a traditional crunchy and gooey puffed cereal and marshmallow square that is then loaded up with a layer of chocolate icing, mini marshmallows and a sprinkle of premium hot cocoa powder.
