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!
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
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.
