Smore's Bites

I am constantly looking for make ahead recipes or yummy treats that won't kill my diet. I found this one from Self magazine and had to share it. Great thing is you can make them up to two days ahead of time and save them in a air tight container.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 bag (10 oz) marshmallows
  • 6 cups rice-crisp cereal
  • 1 cup melted semisweet chocolate chips
  • 7 1/2 rectangular graham crackers (or 15 squares)
  • 1 cup marshmallow crème (such as Fluff)
  • PREPARATION

    1. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in marshmallows and cook, stirring, until smooth, 2 minutes; remove from heat. In a bowl, combine marshmallows with cereal; mix well. In the bottom of a 9" x 13" pan, spread half of cereal mixture into a thin, even layer. Top with warmed chocolate. Place graham crackers in a single layer over chocolate, breaking crackers as needed to fit; top with crème. Spread remaining half of cereal mixture over crème; press lightly to cement layers together. Let s'mores sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes before cutting and serving.
