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…
PhotobucketGolden Grahams are underrated, don’t you think?

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

PhotobucketThe 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.

PhotobucketWhen you’re ready, flip it upside down.

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

S’mores week day 2 out.


Golden Graham S’mores Squares

  • Author: Cookies & Cups


  • 1/4 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 9×9 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.

  1. 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. 🙂

  2. 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 🙂

    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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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 🙂

  6. 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!!!

  7. 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.

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

  9. 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!

    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!

  11. 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.

  12. Debra Kapellakis

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

  13. 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!!

    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!

    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 bunches for this recipe..gotta go and have another one…see ya!

  17. 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.
