Golden Graham S’mores Squares


It was like, a major duh that I would make a krispie treat inspired by s’mores.

I don’t deviate too much from my comfort zone.

And since marshmallows are an integral part of a krispie treat as well as a s’more, well… that’s where the “duh” part entered stage right.


The obvious part here was subbing out Golden Grahams cereal for the Rice Krispies…

It’s not rocket science, guys.


Sometimes ideas are just so obvious that it makes you shake your fist and wonder what took you so long to think of it…

THEN you google it and realize that you didn’t think of it.  Many others have already been there, done that and done it again and again annnnd again.


But whatever.

Today I made my version.  That’s how it goes on the internet.

Golden Graham S’mores Squares.


First you’ll need some cereal…
Photobucket Golden Grahams are underrated, don’t you think?

And of course, you’ll need some of these…
Photobucket Melt some butter, melt some marshmallows and stir in your GG…
Photobucket Then you get to add in MORE marshmallows.  Isn’t that fun?
Photobucket And then you add in milk chocolate chips.  Because what’s a s’more without chocolate?  I can tell you what it ain’t…

Photobucket The chips will half melt and half not melt.  That’s the whole idea.

Stir that whole situation up…you’ll need to use some muscle, it’ll be a little stiff.

That’s what she said.


Spread it in a pan and let it lie for a beat.

Photobucket When you’re ready, flip it upside down.

So pretty.
Photobucket And cut it into squares…
So good, so easy.

S’mores week day 2 out.

Golden Graham S’mores Squares
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 (10.5 oz) bag mini marshmallows, plus 2 cups
  • 7 cups Golden Graham cereal
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  1. Spray a 9x9 pan with cooking spray.
  2. Over low heat melt butter.
  3. Mix in 10.5 oz bag of marshmallows, stirring frequently until melted. Remove from heat.
  4. Stir in Golden Graham cereal. Let sit for 2 minutes.
  5. Pour in 2 cups extra marshmallows and stir until combined.
  6. Pour in milk chips and stir until combined. At this point the mixture will be difficult to stir and the milk chips will melt slightly, but not completely...this is what you want.
  7. When chips mixed in pour into prepared pan and press evenly.
  8. Let cool at least 15 minutes before cutting into squares.
store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

I love S’mores in pretty much any form!

April 23, 2012 8:58 pm

Golden Grahams are definitely underrated! I always keep boring healthy stuff like Kashi at home. But whenever I’m saying at my parents, I always do a happy dance for breakfast because I know they’ll have GG. :)

Thanks for linking up my Smores recipe and whoa Nelly, you outdid yourself with these. They look so gooey, so wonderful, so….perfect!

April 23, 2012 8:59 pm

I need a few of these like…now.

And by a few, I mean the whole pan.

April 23, 2012 9:03 pm

Oh my gosh! I’m pretty sure I used to have something like these when I was little, but I forgot all about them! They are awesome and so delicious! Also – thank you for the ‘that’s what she said’ joke! I’ve been on a kick with those lately and it brought a smile to my face to see someone else thinking the same way as me :)

April 23, 2012 9:03 pm

Golden Grahams are my favorite cereal and I’ve made them into treats before, but DUH, never thought to add the chocolate. Seriously, and I call myself a food blogger. I bow to the genius!! Yum.

April 23, 2012 9:04 pm

This looks like something I will be making tomorrow on my half day off!

April 23, 2012 9:05 pm

Aww yeah. Pure deliciousness!

April 23, 2012 9:09 pm

S’mores WEEK?! Yes, please!

April 23, 2012 9:21 pm

This is one of my favorite cereal recipes! I hven’t made it in awhile. Thanks for reminding me about it…my mouth is watering right now!!!

April 23, 2012 9:25 pm

I’m loving the s’mores posts. Even better is that I’m getting some Fab ideas for Summer Reading this year! Our theme includes camping so these are *perfect* or they would be if I didn’t want to eat them all and not share.

April 23, 2012 9:30 pm

Good thing I saw this before going to the store tomorrow. Must pick up Golden Grahams!!

April 23, 2012 9:38 pm

golden grahams are one of my FAVE cereals… and s’mores make my head spin. i need to try these! i love your creative recipes Shelly :)

April 23, 2012 9:53 pm

When I was a kid, I used to make my own version of these in the microwave (got the idea from the side of the box) and LOVED them! Can’t wait to try your version out! They look yummy!

April 23, 2012 10:03 pm

OMG, I could wipe out a whole pan of those!

April 23, 2012 10:22 pm

Oh Golden Grahams! They were my favorite cereal growing up and the closest thing to ‘candy cereal’ my mom would buy – no Lucky Charms in our house! These look fantastic! I just may have to add golden grahams to my shopping list…

April 23, 2012 10:29 pm

I’m a new follower of your blog… and oh my goodness… those look delicious. I love me some Golden Grahams, I’m totally going to have to try that now :)

April 23, 2012 11:14 pm

You can never have too many S’mores treats! These look tasty!

April 23, 2012 11:27 pm

I’m normally not enchanted with s’mores inspired treats. But I’m definitely making an exception in this case!! Delicious!

April 24, 2012 12:23 am

that’s what she said- HA! I hate it when I think I am being totally original and then I google it, and it’s already been done. These do look great by the way! Awesome job! Well done! Bravo!

April 24, 2012 6:43 am

I’m lovin’ the idea of a week dedicated to s’mores! These crispy treats look so good – I love that you used Golden Grahams – they really are underrated!

April 24, 2012 7:11 am

I used to love golden grahams! Love these.

April 24, 2012 8:12 am

Golden grahams are a staple in our household. My kids love it just as much as I do! In fact I just bought a box to make something for your friday link up…I might have to tweak it some since it is pretty close to what you just made! I could eat an entire pan of these awesome graham treats!!! Love all the melty chocolate and extra marshmallows!!!

April 24, 2012 8:12 am

Yum! That is all I have to say about that!


Love them!

I did the same thing. I thought of this recipe, I googled just to be sure that I was as super fabulously creative as I expected, and I was met with a hundred other people who had done it before me. So I just got mad and never made them.

Now I kinda want to make them.


April 24, 2012 2:07 pm

These are so perfectly DUH that i never would have thought of it either! Love everything about them. Especially the ooey gooeyness.

April 24, 2012 2:40 pm

I needed a different but easy to handle recipe for a charity bakesale this weekend. This will be great! Thank you so much.

April 24, 2012 2:56 pm

Yummy! I am so making these!

April 24, 2012 4:05 pm

Oh my gosh I can only imagine and yummy these must taste. I have to make these!

April 24, 2012 5:49 pm

Those look so yummy! With the weather warming up I am all about s’mores right now. I just shared a recipe for s’mores cake yesterday! What are the odds!? I’m excited to see what else you come up with!

April 24, 2012 7:28 pm

These are one of my favorite cereal treats! I am loving S’mores week already!

April 24, 2012 7:56 pm

Oh I am soooo upset I didnt buy that box of Golden Grahams yesterday :( !!!! It is seriously the best cereal, totally underrated I agree.Have to go with my gut and buy the box next time!!! These look heavenly!

April 24, 2012 9:09 pm

Only you could combine s’mores and rice krispies treats with a that’s what she said. Way to dirty up the quintessential kid’s snack, my friend. You’re a girl after my own heart.

OK, I checked out all those that you shared and my vote goes with yours. You did gooder than them! thank you for sharing

April 25, 2012 12:34 pm

I think I just squealed a bit when I saw these. They look awesome. Starred them in my reader so I can find the recipe quickly. Yumorrific!

April 26, 2012 10:54 am

Haha – I’ve totally done that, thinking that I came up wtih something totally unique, only to find out that it’s been done many, many times. They actually used to print a similar recipe on the Golden Grahams box. I’m pretty sure that’s where I originally got it. But it totally doesn’t matter, because these are so good that they need to be shared time and time again!!

April 26, 2012 10:48 pm

Is that in a 9X13 pan or a 9X9? I am sure once I get started I will know, just trying to figure out how much this makes.

April 27, 2012 2:10 am

This is one of the gazillion reasons I am FLUFFY! Perfection!

Yummy! My 8th graders are taking a test on quadratic functions tomorrow so I just made a batch as a treat. They got a little more melty, but omg they are awesome. Thanks for the great idea and directions. I don’t cook or bake. EVER. But these were simple and delish!

I made these for my high school peers while they were all editing my last essay of the year and they went bananas for it! So easy and delicious-thanks so much!

What would the measurements be for a 13 X 9 pan??

Just made these…and I could not wait 15 to try them! They are so YUMMY!! I hope I don’t eat them all…so addicting. I did not have a 9 x 9 pan, so I used a 11 x 7 pan, which they would not all fit in there, so with sticky fingers, used a second pan to put the overflow in. Next time I will try a 13 x 9 pan. Didn’t have any milk chocolate chips, so I used the semi sweet ones and had to mix the regular size and minis, but hey, it works either way. Thanks… Read more »

We had this at my college for an event and we substituted Cinnamon Toast Crunch in for the Graham Squares. It was DELICIOUS!
