I love s’mores. The melted milk chocolate, the gooey marshmallows and the crunchy graham crackers are the perfect summer treat.

Indoor S’mores Bars

Instead of using Hershey bars, use Hershey’s chocolate chips or any type of milk chocolate chips. Substitute Golden Graham cereal for the graham crackers, and use mini marshmallows instead of the large ones.

Be prepared to be transported right to summer after taking a bite.

Golden Grahams S’mores Bars Recipe

This recipe for Golden Graham s’mores bars with corn syrup is vintage, coming from a 1979 Cook Book of Recipes from Women Educators.

I can imagine a teacher making up a batch of No Bake Smores for her students and automatically being named the teacher of the year.

The problem is that I can’t stop eating them. I love how they are soft, yet crunchy from the Golden Graham cereal. And who doesn’t like the combination of milk chocolate and marshmallows.

Notes About Golden Graham Cereal Bars Recipe

  • For authentic smores flavor, use milk chocolate chips or Hershey’s brand chips in these smores bars. Semi-sweet chocolate or even white chocolate chips could be used for a new variation.
  • Generic Golden Graham cereal works fine too.
  • Use white corn syrup, not dark. The flavor is not the same.
  • Butter or margarine works well.
  • Work quickly when pouring the chocolate mixture over the cereal mixture so that it doesn’t set up before you’re ready.
  • I recommend reserving 1 cup of Golden Graham cereal from what’s in the recipe. If there’s plenty of chocolate, go ahead and add it. If it seems dry, leave out the last cup. This ensures each bite tastes like a smore and isn’t too dry.
  • Be sure to let these Golden Graham Smores sit for at least one hour before cutting so they properly set up.

What makes S’mores so delicious?

If you’ve ever made your own s’mores over an open fire, then you’ve lived your best life.

No really, there’s just something about the combination of melted milk chocolate, a slightly burnt marshmallow that’s ooey and gooey on the inside, combined with the crunch of a graham cracker that makes life that much better.

For an extra special S’mores, swap out the milk chocolate bar for a Reese’s cup.  You might just say you’ve died and gone to heaven.
