The Best Marshmallow and Chocolate Dessert

It’s only been 5 days since I last made a batch of Royal Chocolate Marshmallow Bars, and yet, I’m ready to make them again.

I am literally having withdrawals from these. They might be the best marshmallow and chocolate dessert ever.

Another great thing is that the recipe uses a jelly roll pan meaning it makes a huge batch. This is perfect for a bake sale, the holidays, or even for a group of hangry kids.

Chocolate Marshmallow Crispy Bars

My bestie, Kristin, is a marshmallow lover (along with red wine and coffee). She can’t resist any dessert with marshmallows especially a chocolate and marshmallow dessert.

Her sweet cutie daughter, Mal, was having a bake sale, so Kristin asked me to contribute a couple desserts.

I just knew it had to be a dessert with marshmallows.

So, I threw open my Waynesburg Christian Church Cook Book to the best ever chocolate marshmallow crispy bars. The crispy part of the name comes from the addition of Rice Krispies in the peanut butter chocolate topping.

  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda and cocoa powder; add it creamed mixture. Stir in chopped nuts.

  5. Remove from the oven, top with mini marshmallows.
  6. Return the pan to the oven for 2 to 3 minutes; remove from the oven again.
  7. Dip a knife in water and spread the melted marshmallow over cake in an even layer; cool.
