S’Mores Bars


S'Mores Cheerio Bars

Every summer and fall, we go camping.  And inevitably, we have leftover s’mores supplies (except for perhaps the chocolate, which doesn’t last long!).  Sometimes our marshmallows get melted together in the bag in the hot car, rendering them unusable, so this would be another good way to ‘repurpose’ those marshmallows.  This recipe is all about using leftover s’mores ingredients.

I chose Cheerios as the base for this recipe because of the mild taste, since the rest of the ingredients are sweet enough for me, but you can use other cereals or even leave out the graham cracker pieces if you don’t have any (and use just cereal).

My kids had fun helping make these, and this recipe is peanut safe (always check your labels to be sure your brand is peanut safe).

S'Mores Bars with Cheerios


~ 4 cups Cheerios

~ 2 cups chopped graham crackers (I used approx. 8 graham crackers)

~ 10oz bag of marshmallows

~ chocolate (I used a 1.55 oz Hershey’s Bar, but you can use whatever you like, including chocolate chips)

~ 2 Tablespoons butter


Chop your graham crackers.

S'mores Bars with Cheerios

And your chocolate.

S'Mores Bars

Microwave your marshmallows and butter in a glass bowl until melted.  Do this in increments.  (Mine took about 2 minutes, but it depends on your microwave).

Mix your cheerios and graham cracker pieces with the melted marshmallows/butter (transferring into a larger bowl, if need be).

S'Mores Bars

Add your chocolate pieces last, so that the heat of the mixture doesn’t completely melt them.

S'Mores Bars

Spread the mixture into a greased 9×13″ pan.  Allow to cool and set.  (Or in our case, there was no waiting!)

    I haven’t had Smores in years. It would be nice to try this recipe. It looks hard though. If I make these, I hope they turn out.
