S'mores Rice Krispie Treats

My floors have been ripped out. You can see into the basement from a few different spots in the kitchen. We do not have an oven, refrigerator or dishwasher and my kids have been confined to the upstairs bedrooms. I will not really get into the fact that the girls have had the flu for the past few days, but this week has been a doozie.

I know that our "kitchen update" will be worth all of this hassle, but right now, I just want to complain about it.

On the bright side, I have had to get creative with the microwave cooking. None of them are good enough to share, with the exception of these fabulous
 S'mores Rice Krispie Treats. 

The treats are gooey, chocolaty and they taste like summer.  I will definitely be making
 S'more, because it will be a week before I can use my oven again!  

** if you get on a S'mores kick, do not forget about the recipe for these AMAZING s'mores bars that B made last summer.

6 cups Rice
 Krispies Cereal
1 bag of marshmallows
1/4 cup (4 Tbsp) unsalted butter
1 and 1/2 cups graham cracker pieces
1 cup chocolate chips

Spray 11x7 baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
In a large microwave safe bowl, heat the butter and marshmallows for 1 minute and stir to combine. Heat the mixture for another 30 seconds or until butter is melted and mixture is smooth.
Pour in the rice
 krispie cereal and graham cracker pieces. Mix together well.
Add chocolate chips and gently stir - you want most of the chips to hold their shape and not to completely melt. (Next time I will also add in about 3/4 cup mini marshmallows along with the choco chips). Immediately press rice krispie treats into prepared baking pan. Use the flat side of a spatula sprayed with nonstick spray to flatten the rice krispie treats down evenly.  Let the squares cool and sit for at least 30 minutes before cutting.
