Common Questions About S’mores Rice Crispy Treats

Can I use regular-sized marshmallows instead of mini marshmallows?

Yes, you can use regular-sized marshmallows. Use approximately 40 regular marshmallows (10.5 ounces) to replace the mini marshmallows. Ensure they are fully melted before mixing with the cereal and graham crackers. Jumbo marshmallows could be used as well, aim for 10.5 total ounces.

Can I use a different type of chocolate?

Absolutely! You can use milk chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, or even chopped chocolate bars. Adjust to your preference for sweetness and flavor.

What if my treats are too hard?

If your s’mores rice krispie treat recipe turns out too hard, it’s likely due to overcooking the marshmallow mixture. Ensure you melt the marshmallows over medium-low heat and remove from heat as soon as they are fully melted. Stirring frequently helps achieve the perfect consistency.

Can I make this recipe in the microwave?

Yes, use a large microwave-safe bowl and melt the butter and marshmallows. Melt in small increments and stir with a rubber spatula to avoid over cooking.

Can I use other ingredients to get a graham cracker flavor?

Yes, if you desire you can switch out the graham cracker pieces with an equal amount of Teddy Grahams or Golden Grahams Cereal. For best results we recommend using the graham crackers, but the other options will work in a pinch.
