Golden Grahams S’mores Bars

Josh loves the S’more Rice Krispie Squares that I make. The last time I made a batch he said he wanted to create his own S’mores treat. I told him to go right ahead. He went to the store and came home with a box of Golden Grahams cereal. I was curious what he was going to do with them. I sat in the kitchen and watched while he made Golden Grahams S’mores Bars.

He started by melting butter and marshmallows together on the stove. Next, he added the Golden Grahams-so similar to making Rice Krispie treats. He pressed the mixture in a pan and got out a package of Hershey’s chocolate candy bars. He pressed the candy bars on top of the Golden Graham treats. Finally, he sprinkled mini marshmallows on top of the chocolate bars and put the entire pan under the broiler for a few minutes. The marshmallows got nice and toasty!

He let the bars cool and then cut them into big squares. He brought me one to sample and I was impressed. The bars were delicious and tasted exactly like S’mores. I loved the Golden Graham cereal base with the layer of Hershey’s chocolate and marshmallow topping. We took these bars to a picnic and all of our friend’s loved them. Way to go Josh!

If you are looking for a new way to enjoy S’mores give these Golden Grahams S’mores Bars a try!

And good news-our Mac is back and working like a dream! Thanks for all of your concern:) Apple is the best and had our computer back to us in no time! I am so glad!

Golden Grahams S'mores Bars

Yield: 12 bars


3 tablespoons butter
2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows, plus 2 cups mini marshmallows for topping (4 1/2 cups total)
4 cups Golden Grahams cereal
4 (1.55 ounce) Hershey's Milk Chocolate Candy Bars


1. Grease a 8x8 pan and set aside. In a large pan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in 2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows. Stir until marshmallows are melted and smooth. Stir in the Golden Grahams cereal. Press mixture into prepared pan.

2. Place Hershey's candy bars on top of the Golden Grahams treat and gently press them down. Sprinkle the remaining marshmallows evenly over the chocolate bars. Place under the broiler for about 2 minutes, or until marshmallows are slightly golden brown. Watch them closely so you don't burn the marshmallows. Let the bars cool completely. Cut into squares and serve.

  1. When I say my husband doesn’t even know where we keep the spoons, I am not even kidding. He does not cook. And does not know where the silverware drawer is…lol.

    If my hubs made me something this amazing looking…I would be…well, head over heels.

    Way to go Josh.

    And I adore!!! marshmallows and growing up I used to eat Golden Grahams by the box full! And Rice Krispy Bars too.

    This pretty much is my perfect dessert. LOVE IT!! :)

  2. So simple, yet so delicious! I’m glad you got your Mac back. I don’t think I could go one day without mine. :-)

    Golden Grahams are yummy and I love the recipe! Now I’ve got that jingle stuck in my head, “Oh those Golden Grahams…” I think I’m dating myself…

  11. TidyMom — August 22, 2011 @ 10:08 am

    These look so yummy Maria!! I’m afraid the boys and I would have this eaten the very first day they were baked!!

  13. shelly (cookies and cups) — August 22, 2011 @ 10:23 am

    Perfection. Golden Grahams are awesome on their own, but throw in a some marshmallow and chocolate. Breakfast of champions!

  14. CouponClippingCook — August 22, 2011 @ 11:04 am

    What a great idea. I love that cereal and it’s such a perfect way to add the graham flavor. Love how simple it is too…looks great. And since it’s cereal, I could totally see having this for breakfast!

  15. I haven’t had golden grahams in a long time. Great excuse to get some now!

  16. Cookbook Queen — August 22, 2011 @ 11:07 am

    Genius idea!! (don’t you hate it when husbands have an idea that actually works??)

  17. Miss @ Miss in the Kitchen — August 22, 2011 @ 11:35 am

    What a fantastic treat! My kids will love them.

  18. HeatherChristo — August 22, 2011 @ 11:47 am

    These are fantastic! Would be great for back to school lunch treats!

  19. Rachel @ Not Rachael Ray — August 22, 2011 @ 11:51 am

    Yum! I bet these give you quite the sugar high! They look great though, I love sugar highs 😉

  20. Deliciously Organic — August 22, 2011 @ 12:27 pm

    My Grandma used to make these when I was a kid. Brings back memories!

  21. DessertForTwo — August 22, 2011 @ 12:38 pm

  25. Bev Weidner — August 22, 2011 @ 1:29 pm

    Look at that! I need to sit down, they look so good.

  26. CookiePie — August 22, 2011 @ 2:14 pm

    What a great idea! This would be really fun to make with kids :)

  27. Gina @ Running to the Kitchen — August 22, 2011 @ 2:44 pm

    we are addicted to marshmallows in our house recently. I don’t know what’s gotten into us but I think these are definitely necessary :)

  28. Kelly — August 22, 2011 @ 2:52 pm

    LOVE this twist with golden grahams. I haven’t eaten them in FOREVER so this is definitely a fun twist.

  29. Angel Hunt — August 22, 2011 @ 2:53 pm

    The cook at the youth camp I used to work for made these almost exactly the same way. I think she used Hershey’s kisses instead of the bars (probably due to what she could get most easily in bulk)…but they were always SO yummy! Thanks for bringing back a wonderful memory.

  30. Aimee @ ShugarySweets — August 22, 2011 @ 3:22 pm

    Yum I love golden grahams. Great idea to turn them into s’mores!

  31. Georgia Pellegrini — August 22, 2011 @ 3:43 pm

  36. Awesome summer treat! S’mores in any form are the BEST!
