These delightfully chewy chocolate rice cereal squares are a great low-fat way to get your fix of chocolate. With just a drizzle of chocolate on top, these no-bake cocoa treats are almost guilt free.

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 10.5 ounce bag mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1 ounce semisweet chocolate (optional)

Preparation:

Melt butter and marshmallows in a large saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Stir in cocoa powder followed by rice cereal. Stir until cereal is coated. Mixture will be very stiff.

Spoon cereal into an 8-inch square pan lined with parchment paper or foil sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Make sure foil or parchment overhangs sides of baking pan. Press cereal down firmly using wax paper to avoid it sticking to your hands or spoon.

Melt ounce of chocolate at half power in the microwave, checking after 30 seconds, then every 10 seconds until melted. Drizzle melted chocolate over cereal.

When cooled, cut rice cereal into 16 squares.
