Golden Graham S’mores Bars

These Golden Graham S’mores Bars are such a delicious twist on the classic Rice Krispie Treat, but using Golden Graham cereal! They’re a chewy and delicious no bake dessert, loaded with milk chocolate and marshmallows…and you don’t even need a campfire to make them.

Golden Graham S’mores Bars Are the Perfect Summer No Bake Dessert!

It’s about that time of year when s’mores are on repeat for the next few months. I stock up on marshmallows, graham crackers, and milk chocolate from now until Labor Day…

And while campfire s’mores are pretty tough to beat, it’s fun to create other desserts using the classic s’mores flavors. Plus, s’mores cravings can hit when you’re least expecting it…and we all might not have a campfire at our disposal. Which brings me to the these Golden Graham S’mores Bars! You’ve got all the flavors and gooey-ness of a s’more…and no fire necessary!

S’mores Bars Are Easy To Make!

If you’ve ever made my Rice Krispie Treats, you can make these. They follow the same guidelines…

  1. Melt your butter.
  2. Melt your marshmallows
  3. Add your cereal
  4. Add MORE marshmallows

And at the end of these you stir in some milk chocolate chips too! Because it wouldn’t be a s’more without chocolate.

What You’ll Need For These Gooey Golden Graham S’mores Bars…

The Ingredient List is short here, which is another reason I love this recipe so much!

  1. Golden Graham Cereal
  2. Mini Marshmallows
  3. Salted Butter
  4. Milk Chocolate Chips

Do You Have To Use Golden Grahams?

I mean…kind of? If you’re going for the s’mores flavor Golden Grahams are the way to go. I am sure there are generic brands of Golden Grahams that will work just as well too.

If you’re trying to get creative you could definitely use other cereals, like Cinnamon Toast Crunch. But that kind of make sthem an entirely different treat, wouldn’t you say?

Can You Use Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Instead Of Chocolate Chips?

Great question! And the answer is yes, but note that the milk chocolate will need to be chopped, and know that it will melt when mixed into the cereal mixture more than chips will. Hershey’s milk chocolate is very soft and melt quickly…which is what makes it so great on s’mores. But chips hold their shape better, which is nice in these S’mores Bars, because you get little bites of chocolate throughout!

Of course, the chips melt a little too…just not as much as the bars.

How Long Do These Last?

These will be good for up to 3 days at room temperature if stored airtight. Air is the nemesis of any marshmallow cereal bar, causing them to get hard quickly. The extra marshmallows in this keep them soft, but even that won’t help if not covered properly.

Im ready to make my smores but only have the big marshmellows .

Mar 5, 2021 1:05 pm

It definitely made more then what I could fit in a 9×9 pan. I ended up having to switch to 9×13 which was perfect!

Aug 17, 2020 4:49 pm

I made these for Boat Day and they were such a huge hit! Everyone loved them and the entire batch was devoured in one day. We will definitely be making these again!

Would this recipe still work in a 9×13 pan? I would like to make it for my family while we’re on vacation next week but there will be at least 20 of us so there’s no way I could use a 9×9 and get enough for everyone.

I just made these, unfortunately they are for someone else but you can be sure I’ll be trying one out for quality control!

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

Aug 11, 2012 4:25 pm

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 »

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

Jun 24, 2012 3:08 pm

I made these for a pool party yesterday. They were so incredibly good! Thanks for the recipe.

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!

May 1, 2012 10:40 pm

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!

Apr 27, 2012 2:10 am

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

Apr 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.

Apr 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!!

Apr 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!
