This weekend, full of activities, ranged from chaos to sweet, and fun to maddening- with weather that matched- rainy, cold days and a gorgeous sunny day on Saturday. One of the highlights was these S’Mores Treats that I made – twice, actually. I made them, along with Banana Pudding and Stop Light Chili for the social work chili supper on Friday night, which is always a fun time. And then we were going to a neighbor’s house for a Super Bowl gathering and I thought I would take the leftover S’Mores Treats, when I realized there were only a couple left in the container. Dave confessed to being the culprit and graciously offered to go pick up the ingredients to make another batch. Which I did.
They are ridiculously easy… I’m talking 6 minutes. Asher was going to help me make them. I asked him to wash his hands. He left the room to wash his hands, must have gotten distracted, came back about 5 minutes later and said, “Where are the ingredients?” And I said, “They are done! I already made them.”
They are that fast. Melt, stir, pour, stir, add, stir, dump, press, sprinkle, done!
These bars are like Rice Krispie Treat S’Mores. My family adores them, which I think is mostly because they love Golden Grahams cereal- which we don’t buy very often.

6 Tbsp. butter
1 bag (10 oz.) mini marshmallows
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/4 cup for topping
1 box (12 oz.) Golden Graham Cereal
1/2 tsp. Vanilla extract
non-stick cooking spray
You can make this in a pan on the stove top or in a glass bowl in the microwave- it’s up to you! Melt butter in pan (or bowl) add marshmallows, stir and continue to heat until melted. (Keep your eye on it, as it can quickly get overdone). Add vanilla. Stir. Add Golden Grahams and 1 cup chocolate chips. Stir until well combined and marshmallow goo is fully incorporated into the cereal. Coat 13 X 9 inch pan lightly with cooking spray. Dump cereal mixture into the pan and press well. Place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes or until firm enough to slice. Slice into bars and serve.
