Variation ideas

  • Chocolate chips can be substituted for milk chocolate. Try using milk chocolate and dark chocolate morsels.
  • Try different flavors of morsels. If you want to change the flavor, try using peanut butter or white chocolate morsels.
  • You can use regular size marshmallows. Just cut them into bite size pieces.
  • Substitute golden grahams cereal with rice krispy treats to make cereal bars. They are super yummy as cereal treats.
  • Microwave. You can also use a large bowl to melt the butter and marshmallows mixture.

How to make golden graham s’mores bars

  • Step 1. Set aside some of the marshmallows. First, make sure to reserve 1 cup of marshmallows and one of the Hershey bars. You will need this later.

How long will they keep?

Golden Graham Smores bars are best eaten fresh within 1 to 2 days. However, they last up to 4 days at room temperature.

They need to be stored inside an airtight container. I like to separate the bars with parchment paper.

Do You Have To Use Golden Grahams?

You don’t have to use golden graham cereal. However, golden grahams provides the most classic flavor of traditional s’mores. You could also break up graham crackers into small pieces and use those instead.

Other ideas to try include: Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Chex Cereal and Cheerios. Just keep in mind that using these will change the flavor.

Pro Tips

  • Reserve the topping. It is important to reserve a portion of the chocolate and marshmallows to add later. Adding some at the end makes the bars prettier so they don’t melt into the hot mixture.
  • Wipe the knife clean when cutting. Wipe your knife clean after you cut the Golden Graham treats. This will help to make each slice look nice.
