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.
