Chocolate and Coconut Rice Krispies Treats

My son loves rice krispies treats. So when we were watching Pioneer Woman together on Saturday and saw her make some marshmallow rice krispies treats with whole mini marshmallows in the treat we knew we had to give it a try.   We went right into making some treats after watching the show.  I came up with my own recipe using the idea of whole marshmallows in the treat. I honestly am not a huge fan of marshmallows or rice krispies treats, but since I added some of my favorite ingredients like chocolate and coconut I was hooked. I love learning new things and I will never forget this tip of adding whole marshmallows into my rice krispies treats.  Thank you Pioneer Woman!


6-7 cups rice cereal
16oz bag of mini marshmallows (divided)
4-5 Tbs butter or margarine
1 cup baker's sweetened coconut plus 1/3 cup extra for garnish
1 cups mini chocolate chips plus 1/2 cup extra for garnish


On medium low heat, melt butter/margarine and 10oz of the mini marshmallows.  When melted add the rice cereal, chocolate chips and coconut.

  Then fold in the remaining mini marshmallows.  Butter a pan (I like Pyrex).  Pour mixture into a buttered baking dish and press down.  Tip:  I used wax paper over the mixture so I could press down the with my hands.  Top with remaining coconut and chocolate chips for garnish (press them down too).  Allow to sit for 2 hours and cut into squares and serve.
