smores bar recipeIt is Valentine’s Eve and I have had some of the most epic kitchen fails of my life today. Let’s just say they involve burnt popcorn, exploding mixers, and strawberry puree on my ceiling. I am going to call it a night, and hope that tomorrow is a better cooking experience. I wanted to wish you a very Happy Valentine’s Day, and leave you with a very simple, fail-proof (God willing) recipe. I made these for my son’s class for his birthday (thank goodness he asked for something other than a cupcake, it was nice to make something easy for a change) and the 2nd grade class asked me to make them for an upcoming class party. The highest compliment from a group of 8 year olds.

  1. I hope today is filled with better kitchen experiences! :-D Happy Valentine’s Day! These look great and easy. My kind of dessert!

  2. Yum! These look great, love the use of Golden Grahams!

  3. We all have days in the kitchen that leave us deflated. And with messy kitchens. Here’s to a more successful day. And cleaner ceilings!

  4. I don’t even remember the last time I saw golden grahams in the grocery store! I’ll need to look harder. These look delicious – much more exciting than rice-krispie squares.

    My Mom used to make these and I loved them! She doesn’t have the recipe anymore and I am thrilled to have it again!

  7. I haven’t seen or had golden grahams in such a long time! These bars look delicious!

  8. I make a version of these, too. I put white choc chips in mine and also add PB to the Fluff…pretty much as much gooey factor as possible. Yours hold together better than mine do :) They look great!

    Have you tried freezing the chocolate chips then adding them to the mix? Its what I do when I make rice crispy treats to keep the M&Ms from melting.

  10. […] These look SOOOO yummy: S’mores Bars Posted on February 14, 2012 by rachelhardy S’mores Barshttp://bakedbree.com/smores-bars […]

  11. Man, now I really want to know what went down in your kitchen- Story Tiiiime ! :D

    These bars look so delicious. I love cereal in any way shape or form. And when cereal is put into Krispie treat form, they’re even better. This looks like an awesome and easy treats :) Happy Valentine’s Day <3

      It was so ugly. I was making marshmallows and shot gelatin and corn syrup all over my kitchen. Not once, but twice. Then I blew strawberry puree onto the ceiling a few hours later. Not good.

  12. I just realized how much I missed the S’mores Bars my Aunt used to make for us until I stumbled upon this post of yours. Talk about sweet nostalgia! Thanks for this recipe.

  13. Brandon says:

    My college cafeteria makes this exactly as you show it here… but it’s always stale! I’m sure your S’Mores Bars are delicious!

  14. What a creative and tasty recipe! These would be such a fun treat!

  15. Natalie says:

    These look easy and delicious!!

  16. Danielle says:

    Oh yum, love smores and I’ve never seen them made this way. I have to try this. Golden Grahams is one of my favorite cereals.

  17. So sorry about the kitchen mishaps! I attempted 3 recipes this weekend but failed miserably thanks to having no sense of smell or taste because I’m sick, I completely understand! But for every failed recipe there are lessons learned and tasty clean ups that come from it. Hope you’re having a great weekend! =]

  18. they sounds like lots of fun to make and even more fun to eat them!
    I haven’t had golden graham in such a while, had no idea they still make them.

  19. Marilyn says:

    I make these by melting the chocolate with some corn syrup and stirring in the marshmellow. The are a hit at bake sales. I put them in cupcake holders for easy bake sale items.
