Texans have some insane pride. I honestly don’t know why. Like, what’s so great about Texas? It’s hot, it’s definitely one of the least pretty states, it take FOREVER to get anywhere, and we get tornados. So really, someone tell me why Texas is so great. I’m a born and raised Texan but I still don’t get it. The more places I travel the more I don’t get it. Since I live in Texas that means it’s 100° in the Fall. Yay! So that means no campfires, no warm fall treats, no making S’MORES. I actually didn’t used to like s’mores. Or marshmallows. But I’ve turned a new leaf and the other day ALL I could think about was how much I wanted a s’more. More specifically I wanted the bite of graham cracker and chocolate. Cause that’s the best part. After crying over the fact that s’mores wouldn’t be a reality till late December or January... I found another way. I decided to take a Rice Krispie Treat and turn it into s’mores. I’m sure something like this already exists, but I’d never tasted one or tried to make one before. So I set out and did it. And they’re dangerous. Jeremy and I ate half the tray in one day. So then I took the rest to my parent’s house and they were gone in minutes. They’re SO good. These are definitely the solution when you don’t have the means to make s’mores. So let’s make s’mores bars together...
You’ll need: 3 Tbsp butter, 4 cups small marshmallows, 6 cups Golden Grahams cereal and 2-3 cups chocolate chunks
I used a mixture of Hershey’s milk chocolate and nestles semi sweet chocolate chunks
Place your butter in a sauce pot over med-low heat until it’s melted
Then add in your marshmallows and stir them until they’re melted too.
Once they’re melted pour them over your Golden Grahams
Stir it until they’re all pretty well coated. We also are trying to cool the melted marshmallows off a little bit before we stir in the chocolate so it doesn’t melt.
Now mix in half the chocolate
Line a 9x13 inch pan with plastic wrap and grease with cooking spray.
Press your treats into the dish
Now press in the rest of the chocolate
Refrigerate for an hour or two and then take the bars out.
Cut em up and enjoy!
