You know those treats that are not only satisfying, but completely addicting? The ones you grow up eating at various family gatherings and can't get enough of? Well I'm pretty sure one of my favorites are Golden Graham S'mores Bars.
S'mores in general are obviously delicious so throw some Golden Grahams cereal, marshmallows, and Hershey's chocolate together and you have yourself a s'mores bar.
This particular recipe calls for a few extra ingredients that make these bars extra chewy and delicious.
They are so easy to throw together because you microwave all of the gooey ingredients. And let me tell you right now, there's a definite reason these taste so good so be ready to share with friends or family.
These really do make a perfect party treat and they won't last long either!
Golden Grahams S’mores Bars
Slightly Adapted from Brown-Eyed Baker
8 cups Golden Grahams cereal
5 cups miniature marshmallows
1-1/2 cups chopped Hershey chocolate bars (about 1-1/2 (4.4-oz./XL) size bars)
1/4 cup light corn syrup
5 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup miniature marshmallows (optional)
1. Line a 9x13-inch baking dish with parchment paper; set aside.
2. In a large microwavable bowl, combine the 5 cups of marshmallows, chopped chocolate, light corn syrup and butter. Microwave in 30-second increments, stirring after each, until the mixture is completely melted and smooth. Stir in the vanilla.
3. Stir cereal into the marshmallow mixture one cup at a time using a buttered spatula. Gently stir until all of the cereal is coated. Stir in the additional cup of marshmallows.
4. Turn the mixture out into the prepared baking pan. Using the buttered spatula, press the mixture evenly into the pan, pushing it down into a flat, even layer. Let set at room temperature for at least 1 hour, or pop them into the refrigerator to firm up faster.
*Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
