So Fast, So Easy, No-Bake

Why bother with a campfire and all the work when you can have all the flavor of smores right in the comfort of your own kitchen.

This super easy, no-bake recipe literally takes less than five minutes to whip up. Five minutes. The hardest part is waiting for them to cool enough to dig into.

And there are literally four ingredients: butter, marshmallows, Golden Grahams, and chocolate chips.

The next time you need a dessert to bring to a picnic, potluck, party, kiddie classroom or birthday party, this is a slam dunk with both kids and adults alike. After all, who can resist smores.

How Do The Smores Bars Taste

They’re gooey, buttery, crunchy, and chewy. Every bite has so much texture going. So good.

Since I love cereal bars of all types, including Rice Krispies Treats (<– with browned butter), the smores bars were an automatic winner for me and my daughter immediately gave them a 10 out of 10.

She looked at the chocolate and those marshmallows and dove right in.

I sprinkled an additional half-cup marshmallows on the top for both visual appeal and taste, but that does require two bags of marshmallows. Therefore, the extra marshmallows sprinkled on top are optional if you don’t want to buy a second bag of marshmallows. I realize not everyone has bags of half-eaten marshmallows laying around like I do.

Also feel free to get heavier handed with the chocolate. For the photos so you could better see what’s underneath, I did more of a drizzle but you can get carried away and do a thicker drizzle/layer by doubling the amount of chocolate chips that you melt. I mean, why not.

Yield: 15
Prep Time 5 minutes
Additional Time 25 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced into small cubes
  • one 10-ounce bag miniature marshmallows, plus 1/2 cup extra for sprinkling optional
  • one 11.7-ounce box Golden Grahams cereal
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted

Instructions

  1. Line a 9×13-inch pan with aluminum foil for easier cleanup and spray with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. To a large pot, add the butter, marshmallows, and heat over medium-low heat until marshmallows and butter have melted and are smooth; stir nearly constantly to avoid burning.
  3. Add the cereal, toss to coat, and turn mixture out into the prepared pan.
  4. Optionally, evenly sprinkle 1/2 cup marshmallows over the top; set aside.
  5. To a small, microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and heat on high power to melt for 30 seconds. Stop every 15 seconds to check and stir until chocolate can be stirred smooth. Evenly drizzle the chocolate over the bars. Set pan aside to cool for about 30 minutes, or until bars have set up enough to slice and serve. Bars will keep airtight at room temp for up to 1 week.

  1. I’m in love with these bar recipes. It is right up our alley, ah yep.

  2. I love s’mores but don’t like the campfire smell that lingers on me after. The band I play in is performing at a campground tomorrow and I am thinking these would be the perfect (and appropriate) treat to take along. Hope you have a great holiday weekend!

  3. Well don’t these look absolutely delicious?! I’ve never actually had Smores before but I’m going to try these!

  4. I’m with Paula! Not a fan of campfires or fire pits in general! Is there a cereal you recommend if one doesn’t like Golden Grahams? (Usually I make s’mores with Nilla Wafers.) I’ve been having marshmallow cravings lately, so these look GOOD!!
