Chai Spiced Rice Krispie Treats

My husband complains that I do "weird" things to familiar foods and don't warn him, so his mouth expects the usual flavor but is instead hit with something surprising (and delicious, I might add).  His tastebuds don't like surprises apparently.  The cocoa powder here is mostly to warn your tastebuds via your eyeballs that these are not run-of-the-mill Rice Krispie Treats.

Chai-Spiced Rice Krispie Treats
Makes 9 big squares or 15 regular squares

6 cups rice cereal
1/4 cup butter
10 oz. marshmallows
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp cloves
2 tsp vanilla

Put the rice cereal in a large bowl.  Melt the butter and marshmallows in a saucepan over medium-low heat, sitrring.  Add the cocoa powder, spices and vanilla and stir until combined.  Add mixture to rice ceral and mix well.  Press into a 9x9 pan for deep-dish squares or into a 13x9 pan for regular squares.
