Bittersweet chocolate and cocoa powder give a classic cereal bar a devilish twist. With only five ingredients and 10 minutes of prep work, who could resist baking one of these batty bars?


  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for pan

  • 1 bag (10 ½ ounces) mini marshmallows

  • ¼ cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa (spooned and leveled)

  • 6 cups crisp rice cereal

  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted


  1. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan. Line bottom and two sides with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on both sides. Butter paper; set pan aside.

  2. In a large saucepan, combine butter, marshmallows, and cocoa. Cook over medium, stirring frequently, until melted, about 6 minutes; stir in rice cereal. Press rice mixture into prepared pan; drizzle with melted chocolate. Let cool to room temperature; cut into 16 bars. (To store, keep in an airtight container at room temperature, up to 5 days.)
