S'mores Dessert Bars
- 6½ cups golden grahams cereal
- 4 tablespoons butter I use salted
- 7 cups mini marshmallows divided
- 3 bars (1.55 oz each) Hershey's milk chocolate bars
Prepare a 9x13 baking dish by spraying it well with cooking spray OR line it with tin foil or parchment paper that has been sprayed lightly. Set aside.
Measure out the golden grahams cereal into a large mixing bowl.
Break apart the Hershey's chocolate bars into the squares.
In a large pot, over medium heat, melt 6 cups of mini marshmallows and the butter together until it's completely smooth and combined. * You will need to watch it carefully, and stir it often, to prevent burning. Make sure the heat is not too high. You want to cook it low and slow.
Pour the melted marshmallows into the mixing bowl along with the remaining 1 cup of mini marshmallows. Stir together until combined.
Gently press half of the golden grahams mixture into the prepared pan. Top with half of the Hershey chocolate squares, and then top it off with the remaining golden grahams mixture. * This will be a sticky job. I like to spray my finger tips with cooking spray OR spray the back of a metal spoon with cooking spray to help spread the gooey mixture.
Press the remaining Hershey's squares onto the tops of the bars.
You can eat these right away or let them sit at room temperature to cool down a bit and come together. Store leftovers, at room temperature, in a covered container or a gallon-sized Ziploc bag.
Mini Marshmallows : You will need the larger sized bag of mini marshmallows for this recipe. One (10 oz) bag of mini marshmallows is equal to 6 cups. So to get the 7 cups needed you will need the larger sized bag of mini marshmallows. It's the 16 oz sized bag.
Golden Grahams : One small box (11.7 oz) is enough for the 6.5 cups needed in the recipe. This recipe has been updated with better pictures and more helpful text in March 2021. Recipe is the same with only the slight change of the extra 1 cup of mini marshmallows. If you made this before, the recipe called for only 6 cups of mini marshmallows (10 oz bag) and not the extra 1 cup that are mixed in with the cereal. You can make it either way. I think it's much better with the extra 1 cup whole marshmallows.
