Golden Graham Smores Bars

The summer heat is still upon us so I was looking for something different in the way of a no bake dessert. I have a list of ideas but they all sounded boring the other day when I was looking for some sweetness.

I didn't find anything to fulfill my sweetness craving until I needed to help put a snack together for Vacation Bible School week at my church!

I love it when I can take things out of my pantry and put them together for a yummy snack that even involves chocolate! I also love the fact that my kids are old enough that they can make this snack without too much adult supervision in the kitchen.

Golden Graham Smores Bars

3/4 cup light corn syrup
3 tbsp. butter or margarine
1 pkg(11.5 oz) milk chocolate morsels
3 cups miniature marshmallows
1 tsp. vanilla
1 pkg. Golden Graham cereal (9 cups)

  • Grease 9x13 pan.

  • Heat syrup, butter/margarine, and morsels to boiling, stirring constantly.

  • Remove from heat, stir in vanilla

  • Pour over cereal; toss until coated.

  • Fold in marshmallows, 1 cup at a time.

  • Press in pan with buttered back of spoon. Let stand 1 hour.

  • Cut into 2 inch squares.

  • Store loosely covered at room temperature up to 2 days(if they last that long!).

  • Makes 24 squares.

Overall this takes about 10 minutes to put together. If you get the items on sale like what I did, the cost to make these bars is about three dollars! Not bad!

This would take care of my occasional sweet tooth craving. By occasional I mean the cravings I get about 24 times a day!! lol..........

Thanks for posting a fun way to make sweet snacks for me and the teens.
