Smores Bars: Easy No-Bake Cookies
Smores Bars are one of the easiest cookie recipes to make
with kids – and one of their favorites. They require no baking. These cookies
set quickly after preparing, too.
The cookies are a variation of the traditional campfire
snack consisting of a roasted marshmallow and layer of chocolate sandwiched
between two pieces of graham cracker. The cookies use graham-flavored cereal as
the base, combined with melted miniature marshmallows and melted chocolate
chips to hold them together.
The name “s’mores” is a contraction of “some more” (that is,
tasting so good that people always want “some more”), a term which is credited
to a 1927 Girl Scouts publication.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Setting time: 20-30 minutes
Makes about 42 bars
8 cups graham cracker cereal, like Golden Grahams™
6 cups miniature marshmallows, divided
2 cups milk chocolate chips, divided
¼ cup light corn syrup
5 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Lightly grease a 13 x 9 baking pan.
- Spray a large mixing bowl with cooking spray. Measure cereal
into the bowl and set aside.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, mix together 5 cups of miniature
marshmallows, 1 ½ cups milk chocolate chips, corn syrup, and butter. Microwave
on high at 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until the mixture
is melted and smooth when stirred, about 2-3 minutes. Remove mixture from the
microwave and mix in vanilla extract. The mixture will be thick.
- Pour melted marshmallow mixture over cereal. Toss quickly to
coat cereal pieces. Add in 1 cup miniature marshmallows and ½ cup chocolate
chips. Mixture will be sticky.
- Press mixture evenly into prepared pan, using the buttered
back of a wooden spoon or a piece of waxed paper so that it doesn’t stick to
your fingers or adhere to the utensil.
- Allow Smores Bars to set either at room temperature or in
the refrigerator. Cut into bars. Store cookies loosely in an airtight
A Special Baking Tip
from The Elf
As you mix together Smores Bars, add melted marshmallow
mixture into the cereal in 3-5 additions, turning over the cereal onto the
coating with each addition. This helps cover the cereal surfaces more quickly
Use patience. Make sure all cereal is coated before adding
extra marshmallows and chocolate chips and pressing the mixture into the pan.
Otherwise, the bars will fall apart when you cut them.
You can substitute semi-sweet chocolate chips for milk
