S'mores Rice Crispy Treats

All my self-control went out the window last weekend.

I hate cloudy days.  Cloudy, overcast days with temperatures around 50 degrees are commonplace here in the summer.

On days like that, I tend to shut down.  I put on sweatpants, turn on the fireplace (gas...I'm not exactly out back choppin' wood), and take a nap.  I don't cook.  I don't move around much.  I wear socks.  And slippers.  And I generally stuff myself with as much sugar as possible.

On this day, I happened to go to church.  *Only* because I knew I wanted to go to Old Navy and I couldn't justify driving past the church to get to Old Navy without stopping.  So after dropping way too much money at Old Navy (I bought a swimsuit of all the ridiculous things), I stopped at the grocery store.

This is what I came home with.


Just that.

And then I ate these for dinner.

I could've done a better job with these pictures.  But like I said, I wasn't in the mood to do so.  I crammed these babies into my mouth like they were going out of style.  Didn't even cut them.  Just ate them out of the pan with a spoon.  Good luck to me with that bathing suit I just bought.
S'mores Rice Crispy Treats
 makes a 9x13 pan

10 graham crackers, coarsely crushed + 2 graham crackers, coarsely crushed  (keep them separate)
1 cup chocolate chips
5 T. butter
1 10 oz. bag marshmallows
4 cups rice crispies

In a large saucepan, melt the butter.  Add in the marshmallows, stirring over medium-low heat until they melt.  Stir in the chocolate chips (they'll melt), 10 crushed graham crackers, and rice crispies.  Mix well until combined.
Grease a 9x13 pan, and spread in the mixture, flattening it out to make it even. Press the 2 coarsely crushed graham crackers into the top.  Cover and let harden before serving.
