Happy St Patrick’s Day. I hope you are enjoying the holiday of green. Today however, I’m sharing something completely unrelated to St Patrick’s Day. I decided today to share something for your sweet-tooth and something I love. A few weeks ago we were feeling the winter blues and felt like we never left the house. As part of a family date night I made an ‘indoor camp’ for our family. We pumped up the air mattress in the living room and watched Jurassic Park while eating these indoor s’mores bars. It was a great night and a great treat, so I decided to share the recipe with you. I just made it up as I went, I know some other recipes use karo syrup but I was just trying to keep it as simple as possible! Enjoy!
They are delicious! I am not a typically a s’mores person unless I’m desperate on a camp out because to be honest the marshmallow is my least favorite part. However these Indoor S’mores Bars should come with a warning label because even in trying to be careful within two days the pan was gone.
Yield: 12 servings (3″ x 3″)
Time: 10 minutes, allow time to cool before serving
- 6 c Golden Grahams Cereal
- 10 oz bag mini marshmallows, divided
- 1 1/2 c chocolate chips, divided
- 1/2 T butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Step 1
Grease a 9 x 13 pan. In a large bowl combine Golden Grahams cereal, 3/4 c mini marshmallows and 3/4 c chocolate chips. Set aside.
In a large pot melt butter and remaining mini marshmallows over medium high heat. Add vanilla and stir. Allow mixture to sit for 30 seconds to 1 minutes before pouring over cereal mixture. Combine the melted marshmallows with the cereal mixture stirring as little as possible. You want to mix everything but don’t want to mix it so much everything melts completely. Transfer the Indoor S’mores Bars to the greased pan, as you do so add the remaining 3/4 c chocolate chips and gently pat into place. Allow the bars to cool before serving.
We seriously ate these Indoor S’mores Bars so fast. They are so good! Way better than a s’more over a campfire.
Be sure to hide yourself a bar for a late night snack before sharing with your family. You’ll go back for seconds, and there won’t be any left.
