Author: Jess Smith via Inquiring Chef Recipe type: Dessert Yield: ~15 treats Ingredients Wax paper Cookie Cutters 4 Tbsp Unsalted Butter 2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder, unsweetened (optional) 1 bag (10 oz) Marshmallows (see note) 6 cups Crisp Rice Cereal ¼ cup Mini Semisweet Chocolate Chips Nonstick cooking spray Icing, sprinkles and candy for decorating Instructions Before starting line a sheet pan with wax paper. Set out cookie cutters. In a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat, combine butter and cocoa powder. Stir until melted. Add marshmallows and keep stirring until melted, 4 to 6 minutes Remove pan from heat and stir in cereal and chocolate chips until fully combined. Spray hands and cookie cutters with nonstick cooking spray. Working quickly (the mixture will be harder to work with as it sets), press marshmallow-cereal mixture into the top of each cookie cutter. Be sure to press the mixture into the corners of each cutter. Lift the cookie cutters away. Repeat with all of the remaining mixture. Allow treats to cool until fully set, ~30 minutes Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days Decorate with icing, sprinkles and candy as you'd like! Notes Mini marshmallows work best for fast, even melting, but regular marshmallows will work fine as well. Adapted from Chocolate Rice Krispies. 3.5.3226
