With my love for all smores dessert options, it seemed only right that I make something S’mores-oriented. Though I’m not a particularly rustic gal, I do enjoy camping here and there. But there has to be a bonfire involved and I have to be able to roast marshmallows and s’mores! As you likely know by now, we are major Cereal Treat enthusiasts in our home. So when I began brainstorming different smores bar recipe ideas, this one shot straight up to the top of the list!

These smores bars is such an excellent last minute option for a picnic or get together. They come together super quickly in a 9 x 13 pan and taste really fantastic. And they can totally be made ahead if you want to. I went extra heavy on the marshmallows and chocolate chips, to make them extra decadent. To say these will be a hit with the kids would be an understatement- for the rest of the week, A kept asking for Smore- see what I did there?

Tips for making Golden Graham Smores bars

  • Spray the 9 x 13 pan and line it with parchment. But make sure to have some extra parchment come up the sides of the pan because you can use this to pull the bars out in one piece so you’ll be able to slice them in the cleanest way possible.
  • Be sure to use low heat- yes it takes a tiny bit longer, but you also don’t have to worry about burning anything and having to start all over again.
  • I like to spray my spoon with cooking spray before stirring the marshmallows to prevent sticking. Same with my hands before pressing the mixture into the pan.
  • I like to set these in the refrigerator and also store these in the fridge (especially in the summer) to prevent melting. That said, they don’t have to be stored in the fridge, just be sure to keep them in an air-tight container.
  • These can totally be made a day in advance.

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: smores
Servings: 15 bars
Author: Jessy Freimann, The Life Jolie
Ingredients
  • Cooking spray
  • 3 Tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 1 10 ounce bag mini marshmallows, divided
  • 5 cups Golden Grahams cereal
  • 1 cup chocolate chips + 1 small handful
Instructions
  1. Spray a 13 x 9 pan with cooking spray and line it with parchment paper, leaving some extra paper over the sides (this makes it easy to pull it out of the pan once it's set to cut it).

  2. Melt butter over medium heat in pot. Once it's melted, reduce the heat to low.

  3. Set aside 1 cup of mini marshmallows + 1 small handful from the 10 oz bag and add the remaining marshmallows to pot. Spray a mixing spoon with cooking spray and continuously stir until marshmallows are fully melted.

  4. Remove the pot from the heat and add the Golden Grahams. Stir well to combine.

  5. Then add the reserved cup of mini marshmallows and the cup of chocolate chips (leaving the handfuls aside).

  6. Stir once more to combine and then put the mixture into the prepared 13 x 9 pan. Gently press it down into an even layer in the pan.

  7. Top with handfuls of extra marshmallows and chocolate chips to your taste and let it set in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (but longer is better).

  8. Once set, pull the bar it out of the pan in once piece using the parchment paper and slice. Store in an air tight container and enjoy!
