Craving s’mores in the middle of winter? Whip up these Rice Krispies treats. They’re packed with everything you love about the classic summer camp treat — melty chocolate, crunchy graham crackers, and gooey marshmallows — without the need for a fire.

To deliver graham cracker flavor in every bite, you’ll replace a portion of the Rice Krispies cereal with coarsely crushed graham crackers. The chocolate comes in the form of milk chocolate chips, and instead of melting all the marshmallows, you’ll stir some in separately so there are pieces in every bite. If you want to go the extra mile, press extra chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs, and mini mallows on top for decoration.
