Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package mini-marshmallows (10-ounce)
  • 3 cups crisp rice cereal
  • 3 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 cup chocolate candies (*optional)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

  • Place cereal and popcorn in a large bowl. Pour melted marshmallows over cereal. Stir until coated.
  • Mix in chocolate candies. Pour mixture into a greased 9x13 pan and flatten.
  • Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe dish and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until melted. Pour melted chocolate over krispie treats and spread evenly.
  • Place white chocolate in a microwave-safe dish and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until melted. Drizzle a small amount of melted white chocolate over the chocolate topping. 
  • Use food coloring to color remaining white chocolate. Drizzle over top. Use a knife or toothpick to swirl white chocolate.
  • Chill for about an hour. Cut into 16 large or 32 small bars.

Notes

* I used mint m&m's in these bars, which gave them a great mint flavor.
