Can y’all believe that (as of publishing this recipe!) I’ve been sharing my recipes here for over 12 years? Hard to believe!
I’m sure most of you haven’t been around since the beginning, but if you have then you know I have a thing for s’mores!
I used to share new s’mores creations regularly, but must have burnt myself out because it’s been awhile. Too long, actually. 😉
So here we are with these Golden Graham S’mores Bars – they’re made with Golden Grahams cereal, mini marshmallows, and a mixture of milk chocolate chips and Hershey’s bars. These are seriously so fun!

Golden Grahams Cereal – Our star ingredient! You’ll combine the cereal up with the other ingredients like marshmallow and chocolate to make these Golden Grahams cereal bars.
Marshmallow – These cereal bars could also be referred to as Golden Grahams S’mores! We’ve got all the s’mores ingredients here which means plenty of mini marshmallows and chocolate! It’ll also get melted together with some butter.
Chocolate – You’re going to need some milk chocolate chips, and a full sized Hershey’s chocolate bar!
What We Love About Golden Graham S’mores Bars:
These are ooey gooey, just like a traditional s’mores, but there’s no need to build a campfire. I love that these are quick to whip up and a little more fun than the classic Rice Krispies Treat, but similar enough that everyone loves them!
How to Make Cereal Bars:
Marshmallow: Melt together the marshmallow and butter to create the sticky sweet glue that’ll hold these Golden Graham bars together!
Cereal: Remove from the heat and add the cereal, an extra handful of marshmallows, and some chocolate chips.
Stir: Stir everything really well to coat it in the marshmallow goo. The chocolate chips will melt quite a bit as you stir and the extra marshmallows will soften up.
Shape: Add the mixture to a greased 9×13 baking dish and start pressing it into a smooth surface using some non-stick spray and wax or parchment paper. It’ll save you from sticky hands.
Don’t have any wax paper or parchment paper for shaping the bars? You can either use a little non-stick spray on your hands, or just wet them with some water before pressing down to keep them from getting sticky!
Top: Once you’ve pressed the cereal bar mixture into the baking dish you can break up the Hershey’s chocolate bar and start pressing pieces into the top of the bars. It should be warm enough that they’ll just stick. You can add a few extra marshmallows, if you like.
Keep these Golden Grahams S’mores bars sealed in an airtight container for up to 3 days at room temperature!
When you’re melting the marshmallows and butter together, feel free to use regular sized marshmallows. You’ll want mini marshmallows for mixing in after melting and for topping, though.
