Chocolate Truffle Rice Krispie Treats

This was one of the desserts we made for Father's Day lunch.  Don thought they were rich, but we ALL loved them!  See what we did in bold.
Chocolate Truffle Rice Krispie Treats

¼ cup butter
8 cups mini marshmallows
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
6 cups Krispie rice cereal (regular or chocolate)
½ teaspoon salt

Truffle layer:

1½ cups 10% cream (you can go heavier if you wish)
3½ cups good semisweet chocolate chips or chunks (or dark or milk if you wish)

Optional toppings: chopped nuts, sprinkles, cocoa powder, chopped pretzels, toffee bits, etc. , We used Heath bites, crushed

1. Line a 9x13" pan with tin foil and spray with non stick spray. Set aside.

2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine butter and marshmallows. Microwave on high for 1 minute, stir. Microwave on high for another minute if necessary to melt the marshmallows. Stir until smooth.

3. Add in cocoa powder and ½ cup chocolate chips and stir until smooth and chocolate is melted (work quickly). Stir in Krispie rice cereal and salt until totally combined. Pour into prepared pan and smooth with wet hands and set aside.

Truffle layer:

1. In a small pot, heat cream until bubbles appear around the edges. Remove from heat and stir in 3½ cups chocolate until smooth. Let sit for 5-10 minutes to thicken and cool slightly before pouring over the Krispie treat layer. Sprinkle with desired toppings and refrigerate until set.
