Ooey Gooey Indoor S'mores

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched.
They must be felt with the heart.'"
Helen Keller




What is a summer BBQ with out S'mores.........and then when it isn't the season to have outdoor fires it is nice to have these treats. I make them when we have a large gathering of young folks.

These were made for a bunch of young people leaving for the summer working at camp. However it never made it that far........there were some hungry boys that couldn't resist......grin.

  • 8 cups of Golden Grahams Cereal
  • 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips
  • 6 cups of marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  1. melt 5 cups of marshmallow (save 1 cup for later), chocolate chips, butter and corn syrup in the microwave or on low heat., stirring occasionally, till all smooth.

  2. stir in vanilla
  3. grease a 9x13 pan.
  4. pour cereal into a large bowl
  5. pour in marshmallow mixture, stir until evenly coated
  6. stir in remaining marshmallows
  7. press evenly into the pan, pressing down the mixture with wet hands*
  8. cool until firm, cut into the size that works best for you. It suggests 24 squares, but for this crowd it was 12!

*note* when you work with a sticky mixture like melted marshmallows, the best thing to use is a wet spoon or hands, it works much better than if your hands were greased.

  7. This is definitely a favorite recipe! I have substituted corn flakes for the cereal before, with good results. It's just a less sweet version that way.
