Low Calorie S'more Treats

Looking for a scrumptious, guilt-free treat?  
This one is so easy your honey could whip it up for you for Valentine's Day!

2 1/2 cups cocoa-flavored sweetened rice cereal
6 whole low-fat honey graham crackers
3 tablespoons margarine
1 tablespoon sucralose-brown sugar blend
3 1/2 cups mini marshmallows, divided
1 square (1 ounce) semisweet or milk chocolate, melted (optional)

1. Spray a 9-inch square pan with nonstick cooking spray.  Place cereal in large bowl.  Crumble graham crackers into 1/4-inch pieces and add to bowl.  Toss to combine.

2. Combine margarine and brown sugar in large microwavable bowl.  Microwave on HIGH 25-30 seconds or until margarine is melted.  Add 2 1/2 cups marshmallows; microwave on HIGH 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until marshmallows are melted, stirring after 1 minute.  Stir until mixture is smooth.

3. Add marshmallow mixture to cereal mixture; stir to coat.  Add remaining 1 cup marshmallows; stir until blended.  Press evenly into prepared pan using waxed paper (or a greased spatula).  Cool completely.  Drizzle with chocolate, if desired.  Cut into squares. 

My niece Lydia gave this tasty treat a thumbs up! 
This recipe is from 100 Calorie Snacks & More. Makes 16 squares. Nutrients per Serving (1 square): Calories: 89, Calories from Fat: 20%, Total Fat: 2g, Saturated Fat: <1g, Cholesterol: 0mg, Sodium: 79mg, Carbohydrate: 16g, Fiber: 0g, Protein: <1g

NOTE: I used regular brown sugar.  I try to steer clear of artificial sweeteners.  Also, I only had an 8x8 pan to use, which made them a little thicker.  

This recipe is definitely worth saving calories for!  My husband devoured his!
