S’mores Bars

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.

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

    1. bakedbree

      thank you Caroline!

  2. Blog is the New Black

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

    1. bakedbree

      thanks Liz!

    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!

    1. bakedbree

      thank you Kelley. I really needed a day off from cooking after this one.

  4. Mara @ Elemental Custard

    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.

    1. bakedbree

      I buy them a lot, my kids love them as a snack.

  5. Sara

    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!

    1. bakedbree

      I hope that this one is close.

  6. Hilliary @Happily Ever Healthy

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

    1. bakedbree

      My kids love Golden Grahams, we have them all the time.

  7. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

    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!

    1. bakedbree

      Yum. That sounds delicious. The pressing helps hold them together.

  8. Deanna

    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.

    1. bakedbree

      No, but that is a great idea.

  9. Becca- cookie jar treats

    Man, now I really want to know what went down in your kitchen- Story Tiiiime ! 😀

    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

    1. bakedbree

      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.

    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.

    1. bakedbree

      How cute is that?

  11. Brandon

    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!

    1. bakedbree

      Really? A stale S’mores bar would not be worth eating.

      1. Brandon

        Not at all worth eating!

  12. Jennifer | Mother Thyme

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

    1. bakedbree

      thanks Jennifer!

  13. Natalie

    These look easy and delicious!!

  14. Danielle

    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.

    1. bakedbree

      These are so good, I wish that I had one right now.

  15. FreeSpiritEater

    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! =]

    1. bakedbree

      So true! I also always learn new ways to clean things too.

  16. Roxana GreenGirl { A little bit of everything}

    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.

    1. bakedbree

      They do! And these are so good.

  17. Marilyn

    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.

    1. bakedbree

      Sounds good!

  18. Erin Ledford

    I plan to make these AFTER April weigh-in! Yummy!!!!

  19. Sally @ sally's baking addiction
