Crispy Chocolate Cherry Treats
From Cook's Country
We tweaked the cereal-to-marshmallow ratio of our Crispy Chocolate Cherry Treats to produce creamier, richer treats, and added a bit of vanilla extract and salt (both missing from the original recipe) for flavor. For thicker, more substantial squares, we patted the mixture into an 8-inch square pan instead of the usual 13- by 9-inch pan. To incorporate the seasonal flavors of chocolate and cherries, we stirred in chopped dried cherries. Dark chocolate gave the cereal an unattractive muddy look, so we melted white chocolate chips with the butter and marshmallows and drizzled melted semisweet chocolate on top.
Makes 16 squares
Melt the chocolate by microwaving the chips in a small bowl until smooth, 30 to 60 seconds.
