Indoor S’Mores

Golden Grahams were on sale this week for 2/$5.00 at Meijer, so I decided to try a recipe that I’ve been wanting to try for a while. 20/20 hindsight says this would have been a better “winter” recipe simply because of the chocolate; however, the teenagers in the house seemed to appreciate something different to snack on.

INDOOR S’MORES

  • 8 cups Golden Grahams cereal (the generic would work equally well)
  • 5 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 c. milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 5 T. butter
  • 1 t. vanilla

1. Put 4 cups of marshmallows (save 1 for later), chips, syrup and butter in microwave safe bowl and melt for 2-3 minutes, stirring every minute. Add vanilla.

2. Measure 8 cups of cereal and remaining cup of marshmallows into a large mixing bowl. Pour marshmallow mixture over cereal and stir until well coated. Dump entire contents of bowl into buttered 9×13 pan and press down. (Tip: this is much easier if your hand is slightly damp.) Let cool on counter, cut and enjoy!

THINGS I WOULD CHANGE ABOUT THIS RECIPE:

  • Melt everything on the stove in a large pot and then add cereal. It would have been easier to mix because it would have stayed hot and there would have been less clean up.
  • Cut up a hershey bar into tiny pieces and mix this in when the remaining cup of marshmallows go in.
