Camping Treats

We recently got back from a fun camping trip to the Colorado River! We had a great time playing in the river and eating. I love to stock us up on yummy treats before we go, and this trip was no exception.

Because it was 110 degrees in the shade, we didn’t have a campfire- so I decided to make S’mores themed treats.

S’mores Mini Pies – aren’t these adorable? It was quite a few steps, but it came together quickly. I found the recipe on Iowa Girl Eats. They were good- but not great! Definitely not as good as real s’mores and not as good as this delicious S’mores pie we posted several months ago.

S’mores Rice Krispy Treats – sorry about the terrible picture. I sort of forgot to take pictures and at the last second, just before digging in, I snapped a couple pictures. These were quite good – I would make them again. They were super easy and were yummy. I think I originally found this recipe on Sally’s Baking Addiction and then I just modified it slightly.

6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 bag mini marshmallows, 10 ounce
4 T butter
1 1/2 cup Golden Graham cereal (I crushed them slightly)
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Spray an 11 x 17″ baking pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
In a large saucepan melt the butter. Pour in the marshmallows and stir constantly until melted and incorporated in with the butter. Remove the pan from the heat and pour in the two types of cereal and mix well. Add the chocolate chips and stir gently.
Immediately press into prepared pan, I use a piece of waxed paper that has a bit of nonstick spray on it to press the bars evenly in the pan.
I sprinkled approximately 1/4 cup more of the mini chocolate chips on the top, and pressed them down slightly.
Let cool completely and cut into squares.
