To make my variation, I decided to use Golden Grahams instead of the Rice Krispies, and then I debated for awhile about adding chocolate. I added it, and I'm so happy I did. These, my friends, taste like s'mores. And if you live somewhere like Colorado where there is a ban on all fires, fireworks, flames, and fun, these will get you the s'more fix without the open flame. (Not really a ban on fun, but it was a strange 4th of July with no fireworks booming.) These will take you about 15 minutes to make, you don't have to turn on your oven, and you can consume them just as quickly. As my friend said, they're rice krispie treats on steroids. Good luck not devouring them as soon as they cool (or even while they're still warm).
Speaking of Colorado and fire, there have been a lot of devastating, destructive wildfires in Colorado this year, and hundreds of homes have been lost. Erin of Dinner, Dishes, and Desserts is hosting a bake sale with the proceeds going to Colorado Disaster Relief. I'm contributing my snickerdoodle bars, and there are a lot of other items up for sale. It starts this Sunday, so head over to Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts to bid on the many items.
S'more Treats Recipe
Makes a 9x9 pan
Print this recipe
1/2 cup butter
1 (10 ounce) bag marshmallows
8 cups Golden Grahams cereal
1 cup chocolate chips
Grease a 9x9 square pan and set aside.
In a large saucepan, melt the butter and marshmallows over medium heat, stirring frequently, until smooth. Once melted and smooth, remove from heat and add half the cereal. Mix until combined, add the remaining cereal, and stir together. (If you like your bars to be more gooey, add less cereal. If you like them to be pretty dry/firm, add more cereal.) Add in the chocolate chips, quickly stir until incorporated, and dump into your greased pan. Using wet hands, press firmly into the pan and let cool before cutting into bars.
