  • Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
  • Yield: 20 Bars 1x


Units Scale
  • 6oz Salted Butter
  • 16oz Mini Marshmallows, divided
  • 1/3 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1 1/4 cup Chocolate Chips
  • 8.5oz (8 Cups) Cocoa Rice Krispies


  1. Place 10oz marshmallows in a large bowl and leave the rest in the bag and your Cocoa Rice Krispies in another large bowl set aside. Grease a 9X13 pan with non-stick spray.
  2. In a large pot over medium heat add the butter and cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently until just melted. Add the 10oz of marshmallows to butter, stirring until melted.
  3. Once the majority of your marshmallows have melted add your chocolate chips and cocoa powder. Mix until fully melted then add the cocoa rice cereal and remaining marshmallows.
