After getting a box of chocolate rice krispies on sale the other day, I couldn't help but imagine them smothered in marshmallows, in bar form. Munchkin helped me make these chocolate rice krispy treats, using the chocolate cereal rather than the plain, and cut them into shapes with cookie cutters to share with her little friends. It was a delicious twist on a classic sticky treat!

Using a buttered spatula or wax paper, evenly press the mixture into 13 x 9 pan coated with cooking spray. 4. Cool completely and then cut into squares or use cookie cutters and cut into shapes.
