If you’re looking for a super easy treat to take to the office or a holiday cookie exchange, these are it. They are like a chocolate rice krispy treat, but even easier to make, believe it or not. No baking or melting butter on the stovetop help make these a perfect starter recipe for any littles in the house too. They go fast, so plan on doubling the recipe.
2 C. miniature marshmallows
2 T. butter
1 T. unsweetened cocoa
1/4 t. vanilla extract
3 C. whole grain cereal (such as Kashi Go-Lean)
1/2 C. semisweet chocolate chips
