Indoor S'mores


If you're havin' a hankerin' for a s'more, but don't want to break out the open flames, try these S'mores bars.  They're a delicious alternative and super easy to make.  The kiddos can help you make them and snitch a little on the side too! 

Indoor S’mores


Ingredients:
8 cups Golden Grahams Cereal (12 ounce box)
5 cups miniature marshmallows (10.5 ounce package)
1 ½ cups chocolate chips
5 tablespoons butter, cut in pieces
¼ cup light corn syrup (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 cups miniature marshmallows

Directions:
1. Grease a 9x13 pan. Pour cereal into large bowl.
2. In a medium bowl, heat butter in microwave until melted; add marshmallows, chocolate chips and corn syrup. Continue heating in microwave until melted 1 ½ -2 minutes, stirring after every 30 seconds. Stir in vanilla. (When I make these again, I will do this step in a sauce pan on the stove over medium heat stirring constantly until it is melted.)
3. Pour marshmallow mixture over cereal; stir until coated. Place ½ of  this mixture in prepared pan. Then sprinkle with 1 cup marshmallows. Add remaining mixture, pressing down and top with remaining marshmallows.
4. Refrigerate for 1 hour until firm. Cut into bars.

these are the best. and u actually used the traditional recipe. lot of other bloggers using the rice krispy treat recipe and just substituting golden grahams for the rice cereal but thats not how you really should make these. this is a completely different recipe. It uses corn syrup and the corn syrup is essential in holding them together. Glad you used the real recipe. Bet they tasted Fabulous!
