Melissa's Cuisine: S'mores Bars

S'mores Bars

I've said it before and I'll say it again...I love s'mores!  I love the combination of melted chocolate, gooey marshmallows and crispy graham crackers.  I enjoy coming up with new ways to enjoy s'mores and this is one of my new favorite ways.

I recently purchased chocolate Cheerios, probably because they were on sale.  I don't eat a lot of cereal for breakfast, but I often eat it as a snack.  One day I was looking at the box of Cheerios in the pantry and thinking about what I could do with them.  I also noticed my huge bag of dehydrated marshmallows (like the ones you get in hot chocolate mixes).  I picked up the bag in Shipshewana when I was shopping there a few months ago.  I put those two ingredients together and came up with these bars. 

I brought these to youth group for my girls, who raved over them.  Then I put one in Mike's lunch and he came home that day and said he really liked "those bars" in his lunch.  This is definitely a recipe I'll make over and over again!

S'mores Bars

Makes a 9x13" pan, about 24 servings

You will need:
40 regular sized marshmallows
2 Tablespoons margarine
6 cups Chocolate Cheerios cereal
1 cup dehydrated marshmallows*
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


1.  Place marshmallows and margarine in a microwave-safe bowl.  Microwave on high in 30 second increments until the marshmallows are melted and the mixture can be stirred together.

2.  Add Cheerios to melted marshmallow mixture and stir together until completely coated.

3.  Mix in dehydrated marshmallows and chocolate chips.

4.  Press into a 9x13" pan  and let the bars cool for 1 hour before cutting.

*I purchased my marshmallows at a bulk food store.  They are also available online, or I've recently heard that Kraft has started selling them.  If you can't find them, you can leave them out.

  3. I made s'mores bars a while back, and I loved them. I didn't bother to melt the marshmallows, I just threw them on top. These look better than mine, though.
