S’mores Bars

S'mores Bars | Cassia & Co.

I made a batch of S’mores Bars earlier this month as my birthday dessert. They were perfect! Sweet, crunchy, marshmallowy. I think they would be a great dessert for a Fourth of July party, and I may just whip up a batch for our own barbecue.

S’mores Bars

Ingredients

5 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 bag (around 6 cups) miniature marshmallows

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 box (around 8.5 cups) Golden Grahams cereal

1/2 cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate chunks*

*Note: At Target, I found a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chunks by Nestle Tollhouse. The pieces were a little bit bigger than chocolate chips. In a pinch, just use chocolate chips. The bars will look slightly different, but it won’t affect the taste.

Directions

Butter a 9 x 13 baking pan to help prevent sticking.

In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add the 5 1/2 cups of marshmallows (it ends up being most of the bag) and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.

Gradually add the Golden Grahams cereal to the saucepan. Stir until well coated.

Fold in the remaining marshmallows. Then, fold in the chocolate chunks.

Using buttered spatula, press the mixture into the prepared pan. Cool in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.

To serve, cut into squares and enjoy!
