I have always had a place in my heart for everyone’s fave fire-side treat.  Fluffy marshmallows, toasted to golden perfection, that are sandwiched between crunchy graham crackers and gooey Hersheys chocolate.  Mmm mmm.  However, I’ve always been a little skeptical about the whole s’mores-revolution-lets-puts-smores-in-every-cake-cookie-pie-and-icecream thing.  I mean, toasted marshmallows stay at the campfire, right?

Honestly, I was wrong.  Oh, so wrong, for way too long.  I cautiously gave these bars a try and they were absolutely delicious.  Crunchy golden grahams coated with sweet marshmallow magic topped with gooey chocolate chips and……toasted marshmallows.  But it worked.  Sticky, gooey, messy, and perfect.

One of the obvious pros with these s’mores bars is that you literally only use classic s’mores ingredients, just in tinier form!  Golden Graham cereal, mini marshmallows, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and butter.  Bring it.👊 messy plate

 

Honestly, these are just classic rice krispie treats taken to a whole new level.  The mini-grahams are mixed with melted marshmallows and butter, and this gets mixed with chocolate chips.  The bars are topped with more chocolate chips and more marshmallows, and then get popped into the oven, where they are broiled till toasted and golden.

  1. These look delicious. I’m the same way about the explosion of ‘smores everything, but these look really good. I’m always excited about cereal based treats that don’t include peanut butter b/c my little one has a peanut allergy.

    1. Ha,ha. Yes! There were two of us to finish off the pan and one hour after I made them, I was looking around saying, “Where did the S’mores Bars go?”
