I find it's also a matter of timing...if you do it fast enough, you may be able to kill them all before another gets respawned.

Failing that, time to fire up PowerShell and write a small script that identifies the processes by name, and kills them all as fast as it can. That might be the better solution in the long run (assuming Google doesn't come to its senses and stop doing that).

[Edit]
This should do it:
Get-Process -Name chrome | Stop-Process
