Chocolicious Rice Krispie Treats

The classic treat with a twist. An easy favorite!

4-5 tablespoons butter
4 1/2 - 5 cups mini-marshmallows
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
5 1/2 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispies

Melt butter in large, deep saucepan over low heat.
Add marshmallows, stirring constantly.
When marshmallows are 2/3 of the way melted, add chocolate chips.
Stir just until completely melted.
Remove from heat and add Rice Krispies.
Stirring until well coated with the chocolate marshmallow mixture.
With damp hands (get hands wet & shake off excess water), gently press mixture into 13x9 inch pan, lightly coated with butter. (The damp hands prevent the mixture from sticking to you, and allows better control than a spatula.)
Cut into 2 inch squares when cooled & set.
Makes approximately 24 squares.

***UPDATE - I tried this using a cup of WHITE chocolate chips, instead of the semi-sweet, and they were delicious. OK, I will admit that "white chocolate" is not REAL chocolate, and that I prefer a good dark chocolate, but this alternative was very good and a big hit with family!***
