Place wax or parchment paper in the 8x8x2 or 9x9x2 pan and clip the edges with binder clips or clothespins so it doesn't move.

In a large pot over the stove, on low heat, heat the butter until melted, add the mini marshmallows (add 1-2 cups extra for chewier bars), and stir slowly until melted.

Add the unsweetened cocoa powder, and the semi-sweet chocolate chips, make sure it's evenly melted and mixed and then add the rice cereal and mix until combined.
