My daughter Sabrina really likes s'mores, but they're a bit messy to bite into. I made these from Macaroni and Cheesecake the other day, knowing that she would like them, but my daughter Elisa also really liked them and I was surprised at how quickly they were devoured at home. Way better than rice crispy treats!
Golden Grahams S'mores Bars1 (10-oz.) bag mini marshmallows (Approx. 6 cups)
1 (12-oz.) pkg. chocolate chips
5 T. butter
8 c. Golden Grahams cereal (one 12 oz. box)
1 t. vanilla (optional)
Place package of chocolate chips in the freezer to chill. Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking pan, set aside.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a pot over medium heat. Once butter is melted, add in 5 cups of marshmallows and stir until almost completely melted. Stir in vanilla if desired. Remove from heat and transfer butter mixture to a large mixing bowl and add cereal, stirring to coat. Once cereal is coated, remove chocolate chips from freezer and add to cereal mixture. Also add in the remaining cup of marshmallows. Gently stir until evenly distributed.
Press cereal mixture into prepared baking pan. Cover and refrigerate until set. Turn out onto cutting board and cut into squares. Keep stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
