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!

5 from 1 vote


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows plus 2 cups mini marshmallows for topping (4 ½ 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 ½ 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!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  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. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. What a great idea! I haven’t had golden grahams in years but I used to love them. Love that your husband made these:-)

  4. Oh my word. If I had seen this when I was pregnant… I kid you not, I ate Golden Grahms like they were going out of style. This is amazing.

    I adore you!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I used to make rice crispy treats with golden grahams all the time, but I love how you made them into a smores treat with marshmallows on top and the chocolate. They look so good!

  6. 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…

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

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

  9. 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!

  10. Yum! I bet these give you quite the sugar high! They look great though, I love sugar highs ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. 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.

  13. This is such a great idea! I’ve been craving s’mores lately but with no camping in my near future, I will have to try these!

  14. I just wandered onto your site and I have to say that I am in love. SO many healthy yummy recipes… this is foody porn!

  15. Congratulate Josh for me, these graham smores look mouthwatering delicious!!! Thank you for sharing the recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. These have to be the most fun bars I’ve ever seen! I really really hope your little boy loves sweets ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Holy cow – how could I have forgotten about Golden Grahams? They were my favorite growing up – my grandma always had a box!

  18. Yum! Just indulged in smores this past weekend up at a lake house in the adirondacks. Now I can recreate ’em at home…

  19. These look so amazing, Maria! I wonder if we have Golden Grahams cereal in Canada…I can’t remember, but must look into this. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love anything with marshmallows, and I would love to make these for our upcoming long weekend at the cottage–I know the gang would love them! Hope you’re feeling well, Maria! xo

    1. Josh sprayed the knife with cooking spray, but didn’t do anything else special. They cut nicely! Glad you liked them!

  20. I just made these, and they’re divine! Would be a great treat for backpacking when we don’t want to tote around all of the separate ingredients, only to end up with smashed graham crackers at the campfire. Yum!!

  21. Now this is a s’more I could love — I don’t like graham crackers or milk chocolate (except in Reese’s peanut butter cups), but I love Golden Grahams cereal. Josh is a genius.

  22. I somehow stumbled upon your website and this phenomonal recipe! I made them a few nights ago and I am surprised I have been able to not eat the whole pan. I am forcing myself to eat only 2 a day. Fortunately, my husband has not tasted them yet and does not know the wonders! I am a fanatic about s’mores and even found a way to serve them at my wedding. This is the best way to have s’mores all year long!!!!

  23. Wow, this is so creative! I always have this cereal in my house, but no one likes to eat it. This is the perfect solution!!

  24. I made these tonight – I didn’t have any Hershey bars, so I used a bag of milk chocolate chips. Yes…a whole bag. You’d think that would be overkill, but it so totally wasn’t. They taste awesome!

  25. Hello from Guatemala! My friend alexia and I, are Making this now… We are so excited to try it! ๐Ÿ™‚
