Gooey Rice Krispie Treats Covered in Chocolate

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by sofie-a-toast

These are very gooey, thick and rich treats with a dark chocolate layer on the top to put you over the edge! When I made this, the flavor and texture was spot-on but the bars were a little thin. I doubled all of the ingredients (not including the choco layer) here for a thicker bar. Choose whichever way works best for you.

Gooey is right and the chocolate topping is definitely an added bonus. Kids love em, but so do adults. Made for VeggieSwap~

  3. Turn into a buttered 9x9 pan and pack down using a buttered (so it won't stick) spatula.
