When my friend, Ann, (yes, the same Ann who shared the recipe for Shamefully Rich Chambord Brownies that I posted recently) heard about the S’more celebration I had at my house, she was reminded of a recipe she had for Indoor S’mores. She hadn’t seen it in ages, though.
Then one day I received an email from her:
“….while looking for something else, here’s that recipe I knew I had for Indoor S’mores.”
I just made a pan of them to take along this weekend when we spend some time with friends.
In Minnesota, we would call these squares of chocolate, Golden Grahams and marshmallows, bars. I don’t know when I last bought a box of Golden Grahams. Ann’s recipe calls for 8 cups of the cereal. I bought a 12-ounce box and used the whole thing. Minus a few I had to taste, of course.
Using milk chocolate chips sounded like it would result in a super-sweet s’more bar. I used semi-sweet morsels and added some peanut butter cups I had in my pantry.
My husband, the peanut butter lover, highly approves of these bars. They are both crunchy and chewy and not overly sweet.
If you are still in need of something on the sweet side to have on hand for the holiday weekend, you may want to mix up a pan of these Indoor S’mores. They take just minutes to make and you don’t even have to turn on the oven.
I just made a pan of those Shamefully Rich Chambord Brownies, too. If you haven’t tried them yet, you just don’t know what you are missing.
I can’t wait to get the next recipe from Ann.
Ann’s Indoor S’mores with some Sue-per Twists
- 2/3 cup light corn syrup
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels
- 1 (4.4-ounce net wt.) package of 8 individually wrapped peanut butter cups, broken into smaller pieces
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 (12-ounce) box Golden Grahams cereal
- 2 cups miniature marshmallows
Line a 9- x 13-inch pan with aluminum foil. Coat the foil lightly with butter.
Heat corn syrup, butter, chocolate morsels and broken peanut butter cups to boiling in a heavy 3-quart saucepan, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Pour chocolate mixture over cereal in a large bowl. Toss quickly to coat the cereal with chocolate. Fold in marshmallows, 1 cup at a time. Dump mixture into prepared pan. Use waxed paper that you’ve swiped across some butter to press mixture evenly into pan. Let stand until firm. Cut into squares. Ann says you should get 48 bars. They would be small. I didn’t get that many. Store in a tightly sealed container.
