Salted Chocolate Rice Krispie Bars
The traditional rice krispie bar was a staple for much of us growing up. Classic rice krispie treat recipes get a new twist when topped with a rich, decadent dark chocolate ganache, and then sprinkled with coarse sea salt. It's the rice krispie treat- all grown up!

- 6 cups crispy rice cereal
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 4 cups mini marshmallows
- 3/4 teaspoon (about) coarse sea salt (divided)
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
Grease a 13 x 9 inch pan.
In a large stock pot, melt the butter and marshmallows together. Add in about a 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and the rice cereal.
Stir to coat the cereal in the marshmallow mixture and pour into your prepared pan. Press into the pan evenly and set aside to cool.
In a medium size sauce pan heat the heavy cream just until it comes to a boil. Pour the heavy cream over the chocolate chips in a bowl. Whisk until combined, then whisk in the vanilla.
Let the chocolate ganache cool for a few minutes and then poor over the rice krispies.
Sprinkle with the remaining sea salt. Allow the ganache to continue to set up and then cut into bars.
