#GirlCrack: S'mores Treats

Well, the snow has just about melted, and this batch of #girlcrack is just about gone.  Last week, when we were stuck in the house for 3 days, I got a little stir crazy.  Around hour 48, I started looking through my baking cabinet for something to make.  We had an unopened box of s'mores cereal from an old sponsored post, so I decided to dig out all the graham pieces and finally make a batch of #girlcrack.  This stuff first became famous at my and Mike's bridal party weekend getaway, more than 3 years ago.  All of our friends brought things to share, and Mike's friend James brought a variation of this.  Basically, it's rice krispies treats made with graham cereal, and it's soooo good.  I decided to add a drizzle of chocolate to the top to make the perfect s'more.  It's kind of been a running joke that I never shared the recipe, but joke no more!  
Ingredients: 
5 cups graham cracker cereal (Golden Grahams or S'mores)
3 tablespoons butter
1 package (10oz) of mini marshmallows
1/3 cup cream cheese frosting
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1/2 cup milk chocolate

Directions:
1. Heat butter in a large saucepan on medium.
2. Turn stove to low and pour in marshmallows, stirring until melted.
3. Add cream cheese frosting and vanilla extract.
4. Remove marshmallow mixture from the heat and stir in graham cereal.
5. Grease an 9x12 pan and press treats into the pan (spraying cooking spray onto your fingers helps a lot with this).
6. Allow to cool in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
7. When set, melt milk chocolate and drizzle over the bars.
8. Allow to set for another half hour and cut into squares.
So yeah, making these was a perfect way to spend another snow day.  So that I didn't eat the whole batch, I bagged them up and delivered them to neighbors.  Everyone deserves a treat after being cooped up inside for 3 days!
