Hi, Everyone! Happy Monday! I hope you’ve all had a great weekend and are ready for another week! We had a great weekend celebrating my husband’s birthday, which involved a delicious dinner at an Indian restaurant, his favorite cherry chocolate cake, and some present opening too, of course! I’ve been loving the beautiful warm weather we’ve been having here for the past couple of days, and it feels like the summer is just around the corner! And what’s one of our favorite things about summertime? S’mores, of course! So I made a batch of these deliciously sweet and chewy S’mores Treats!
SUMMERY S’MORES TREATS
(Recipe from Tasty Kitchen)
*Makes 12 – 16 bars*
YOU WILL NEED:
12 oz Golden Grahams cereal
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
10 oz mini-marshmallows
6 tbs unsalted butter, melted
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1. First, prepare your dish (I used a 9×9 baking pan) by lining it with wax paper. Set aside. Next, place your chocolate chips in a bowl and let them sit in the freezer until you need them (this will prevent them from melting later on). Pour your golden grahams cereal into a large bowl, and set it aside as well.
2. Next, in a medium sized pot, melt the butter on medium-low heat, making sure that it doesn’t burn or brown. Once it has melted, stir in your marshmallows. Stir constantly, until the marshmallows have melted and you have a thick, smooth, creamy mixture. Add your vanilla into it and mix well.
3. Pour the melted marshmallow mixture onto the golden grahams in the large bowl, and immediately begin mixing. All the little pieces need to be coated with the gooey marshmallows so that the bars stick together. Once all the golden grahams are coated, add in 3/4 of your chocolate chips. Mix well, then pour the whole messy mixture (and it WILL be very messy and sticky!) into your prepared pan.
4. Pat it down evenly (you might want to spray some cooking spray on your hands so they don’t stick to the mixture!), the sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on the top and press them down so they stick down. Then let the whole thing sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour, or until it is solid. Then, cut into squares and serve!
Have a great week, Everyone!
