As the summer winds down and the evenings turn chilly, my favorite thing to do is sit in the backyard with the family gathered around a toasty fire. And of course, to make smores! I love the gooey marshmallows, the crispy, sweet graham crackers, and the delicious milk chocolate.

With these Golden Graham S’mores Bars, you can have the yummy flavors of s’mores anytime, without having to build a roaring bonfire! They’re perfect for after-school snacks (just ask my kids), late-summer picnics, bake sales, and tail-gate parties!

Golden Graham S’mores Bars

  • 1 12-oz bag milk chocolate chips
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 10.5-oz bag mini marshmallows
  • 1 12-oz box Golden Grahams cereal

Place the bag of chocolate chips in the freezer until needed. Place butter in a large microwavable bowl and microwave until butter is melted.

Set aside 1 cup of marshmallows, and add the remaining marshmallows to the butter, toss to coat, and microwave for another 1 1/2 minutes. Stir with a rubber spatula until smooth.

Add cereal and stir until evenly coated. Add chocolate chips and reserved marshmallows.

Scoop cereal mixture into a baking pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. I wanted big, thick bars, so I used a 9″ square pan, but for thinner bars, you can use a 9×13″ pan. Press mixture firmly into pan and allow to cool and set before cutting.

  1. I love the little arrow flags!

  2. This is exactly the recipe I have been looking for! All of the recipes have the chocolate completely melted or the marshmellows completely melted, and I wanted the chunky variety! This way is the best way so you can get all of the individual flavors.

    I was wondering if you think this would work as a crock pot recipe too? For when you’re busy cooking the rest of the party food 😉 Only problem would be how to keep the chocolate chips from melting all the way? Thank you so much for this!

  3. These were great (not that I got any – they were gone by the time I had a break in the action). I made these for my son’s camping themed birthday party yesterday. We had record heat here in Denver and there was no way I was going to turn on the oven or grill. Everyone loved them. Thanks!
