I'm always on the lookout for recipes that I can send to my daughter in Iraq. And I know everyone seems to love Rice Krispie Bars. This recipe however is a bit different in that it uses Cocoa Krispies. Adapted from Annies Eats.
It's really easy to make and ships well. I understand Charlie Company 7/158 Aviation in Balad, Iraq enjoyed them. They didn't last long I hear.
3 Tbsp butter
1 10oz package Marshmallows
10 caramel squares
6 cups cocoa crispy rice cereal
12 candy caramel squares
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tablespoon half and half
Line a 9 x 13 baking dish with waxed paper or parchment paper
Pour cocoa krispies into a bowl. Melt butter and marshmallows in short bursts in the microwave and pour over cereal and mix well.
Melt caramel squares in microwave safe bowl, again in short 30 second microwave bursts until melted. Stir in half and half.
Sprinkle mini chips over the cereal mix and press in lightly. Pour the melted caramel mixture over the squares in a random fashion.
Let chill for about 20 minutes, remove from dish if you can (to make cutting easier) and cut into the size squares you would like.
