(Really Thick) Smores Rice Crispy Treat Bark. Or (Really Thin) Smores Rice Crispy Treats. What’s in a name anyway? All you need to know is these treats are one of my favorites. I had this idea for rice crispy treat bark written in my notebook from December. You know, the long list of ideas to try but will probably never get to half of them because the list keeps growing? Well Miriam of Tales of an Overtime Cook tweeted one day about a rice crispy treat bark she did. Funny because I had an idea myself! We decided to team up and post our bark ideas together. Miriam made Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Treat Bark and I made this Smores Rice Crispy Treat Bark.
Bark is a really thin layer of chocolate broken into pieces. I thought it would be fun to do a rice crispy treat version. Except my layer is an inch thick and not quite thin as I’d like. Maybe I was just tired. Or maybe I didn’t account for the toasted marshmallows and chocolate being piled on top. Either way, I didn’t realize how thick it was until I started cutting it. I asked Miriam if it was ok to still call it bark. She promised she wouldn’t call the bark police.
When I say smores, I mean it. I’ve seen rice crispy treats pretending to be smores, but unless you toast the marshmallows, they aren’t smores. Not sure if you get see the toasted parts in the pictures, but I promise the taste is distinguishable. Then I used cookie butter to mimic graham crackers. I guess looking back on it, I could’ve stirred in graham cracker crumbs, but cookie butter is more fun (and if you are new to the cookie butter concept, you can read about it in my Smores Blossom cookies post). If you don’t have cookie butter, you can substitute peanut butter. Or leave it out altogether and just stir in a bunch of graham cracker crumbs.
