I have kind of been on a Rice Krispie kick lately. Last weekend, I somehow decided it would be a good idea to make a frosting with Rice Krispie Treat Frosting, which hello, is totally necessary in life. At the same time, I have suddenly found myself obsessed with S’mores. As such, I have been racking my brain trying to come up with a variation of a S’mores dessert.
I made a stop at a local bakery recently and they had this awesome ginger snap S’mores cookie that was half dipped in chocolate. I knew I wanted to try something similar at home and poof!

Start by making a batch of Rice Krispies treats. I followed the original recipe from Rice Krispies. I added some sprinkles to my batter, which ended up making them a little pink in color; I loved it!
Let the Rice Krispies cool and set; then cut them into squares. I let mine sit for about 30 minutes. I took the squares and cut them into even smaller pieces and rolled them into tiny bite-sized balls. Continue reading
