BEST No Bake S’mores Bars

Every summer I think it must be the hottest summer on record. And every summer someone reminds me that this 90-110° super hot weather in Sacramento is normal. I know they’re right but jeesh. It feels like the hottest summer ever here.

I’m either getting old and turning into that woman who fans herself constantly (even in the grocery store) or my heart is in San Francisco and I just want it to be foggy darn it! #imissfog #awholeheckofalot

There’s no complaining about these, especially because I don’t have to camp to eat them. And we all love how much I love my indoor s’mores. In fact, I never make them outdoors; I just make them into cookies and dip and bars and pie.

Ingredients in Easy S’mores Bars

I don’t think these s’more bars are a new invention. I’m pretty sure there are about a gazillion recipes for this on Pinterest. I decided not to google and let myself think that I’m so freaking smart.

Cereal: It was a way to make s’mores in about 5 minutes without going outside and I got to use one of the best cereals ever: smores bars with Golden Grahams.

Chocolate: Just basic chocolate chips.

Crisco or Oil: To help melt the chocolate

Marshmallows: Mini ones are best.

Want to know a really unkept secret? I pink puffy heart kid cereal. If left to my own devices, I’d eat Golden Grahams for breakfast, Fruity Cheerios for lunch, Reese’s Puffs for snack, and I’d top my nightly ice cream with Frosted Flakes.

This recipe has a whopping total of…4 ingredients.

How to make Smores Bars

  • Add your chocolate and crisco to a bowl.
  • Melt the chocolate.
  • Mix in your cereal and marshmallows.
  • Press into a pan, chill and boom. No Bake S’mores Bars. So easy kids can make them.

The kids will love to eat them too.

Expert Tips

  • Use shortening or oil to smooth out the chocolate. You can leave out that last part but then it’ll be really hard to cut the bars. So…don’t leave it out. You can use Crisco or vegetable/canola/coconut oil.
  • These are perfect in a 9×9 or 8×8 pan.

Storing and Make Ahead Instructions

Make Ahead: You can make these ahead of time – up to 2 weeks if stored properly.

Storing: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Freezing: You can freeze them too! However the chocolate may dull a bit upon thawing.

  • 1 tablespoon Crisco shortening or vegetable oil

  1. These were really easy and sooooo good! I used cinnamon toast crunch and mini vegan marshmallows. My family loved them. Thank you. 🙂

  2. Hi 🙂 I’m planning to make these tonight. I live in China and it is really hard to find ingredients here so I will substitute the cereal for cookies, the choc chips for regular chocolate and the mini marshmallows for normal sized ones. I’m really excited to make them 🙂 

  3. I just made these and they were really good but too much chocolate for me. I would definetly make then again the receipe was go easy I would just use less chocolate chips

  4. I am obsessed with Smores this year. Can’t get enough! These look so delicious, i haven’t had golden grahams in years (seriously craving them now!)
