Indoor S'mores

There seems to be a lot of s'more love going on in the blog world lately.  Maybe because it's Summer.  Maybe because they're delicious.  Either way you should join the fun if you haven't already.  These are the perfect summertime treat because you won't have to turn your oven on.  Plus, who doesn't love graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows? I do.  And so does Lu.  

As kids we would fight over who got to read which cereal boxes at breakfast.  Have you noticed that some cereal boxes never change?  I mean, you can only find the message in the cinnamon swirls so many times before you know it by heart.  In fact, I think King Vitaman has the same knight and castle on the back of the box as they did when I was a kid.  Anyway, on the side of the Golden Grahams box for practically my whole childhood they had this recipe.  We (my mom) finally tried it with about the 367th box and I'm sure glad we did because we've probably had it about 367 times since.

Printable version 

8 cups Golden Grahams® cereal
5 cups miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I like semisweet best, but use whatever you like)
1/4 cup light corn syrup
5 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup miniature marshmallows, if desired

  1. Into large bowl, measure cereal. Butter 13x9-inch pan. In large microwavable bowl, microwave 5 cups marshmallows, the chocolate chips, corn syrup and butter uncovered on High 2 minutes to 3 minutes, stirring after every minute, until melted and smooth when stirred. Stir in vanilla
  2. Pour over cereal; quickly toss until completely coated. Stir in 1 cup marshmallows.
  3. Press mixture evenly in pan, using buttered back of spoon (or your clean hand). Let stand uncovered at least 1 hour, or refrigerate if you prefer a firmer bar. Store loosely covered at room temperature up to 2 days.
  4. You can also spread it out on wax paper and allow to set up instead of making it into bars if you want yummy s'more pieces.
