Gooey S'mores Treats

As summer begins to wind down, there really is no need at all to give up those fun summer treats, like S'mores.  Sometimes you just gotta get creative with how to make them. And when you give a family favorite a little twist, then not only do you bring back those fun summer memories but you also create a few new ones along the way.
This next recipe is a fun little twist on traditional S'mores. I mean, who doesn't love S'mores? Okay, okay, I'm sure there are a few folks who shall remain nameless. But they are really the ultimate easy, gooey fun summertime treat. So why not bring that treat indoors? No baking required! We are going to make these treats just like Rice Krispies treatsThey will still remain gooey and delicious. My family LOVED these!

Now, I prefer using the Cinnamon Toast Crunch for this because I like that little bit of cinnamon that it adds. But for a more traditional S'mores taste, please use the Golden Grahams cereal. 
Ingredients:
6 tbsp. butter 
1 (10 oz.) bag mini marshmallows
1 (12 oz.) box Cinnamon Toast Crunch (or Golden Grahams)
1 cup semi-sweet (or milk chocolate) chocolate chips
 Directions:
Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray (this will just help get the bars out easier). In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter with mini marshmallows. Don't allow to burn. Stir frequently and melt gently until smooth and combined.
Take pot off of heat. Stir in Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal (or Golden Grahams, if using).
Stir until mixture is totally combined.
Now, at this point, you can stir in chocolate chips. They will melt as you stir them in. Or, if you want to keep them more intact, transfer mixture to another bowl (this will help it cool faster). And then wait a few minutes before stirring in chocolate chips.
Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and spread out evenly.
Allow mixture to cool completely and then slice.
Or, if you are totally impatient like me, dig in while still warm!
Enjoy!

    1. What a great idea for an office party. These are so easily portable too! You could make a few different flavors for everyone. I know they will love seeing you come into work! :)

  3. Just wondering why you don't use marshmallow cream instead of melting the marshmallows. It's sounds like a great treat that could be great for our football weekends!

    1. Tara, you could certainly use the fluff if you wanted to. But the mini marshmallows are cheaper so I just go with those. :)
