BEST No Bake S’mores Bars

I don’t like camping or the outdoors, so no bake s’mores bars are my life all year long! And when they’re this easy to make? PERFECTION.

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 s’mores cookies and s’mores dip and s’mores cookie bars and s’mores pie.

Just 4 Ingredients

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.

How to make S’mores 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.

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.


What should be included in a smores bar?

Some sort of graham cracker or cookie, chocolate, and marshmallow!

What can I use instead of graham crackers for s’mores?

This recipe uses graham cracker cereal (Golden Grahams) but you can use any cereal you like, or use chopped cookies instead.

  1. I know this is weird, but I really don’t care for real smores. I can’t ever get the right balance of toasty marshmallow and melted chocolate. Soooo these bars are perfect for me! Each bite would totally make me happy!

  2. YUM.. these look so decadent and divine! love that the bars are no-bake. definitely a recipe i will be recreating. thanks for sharing another great recipe!

  3. *claps* YAYYYY! Love how simple and quick these s’mores bars are-just more reasons to make ’em asap!

  4. My weird wonderful kids really and truly preferred non-sugary cereal for breakfast when they were little; Cheerios, Wheat Chex, Rice Krispies. However, nothing beats sugary cereal for snacking straight up out of the box or for making desert treats! These s’more bars looks so chewy and delicious, Dorothy! No way Jordan could have complained that you used up her Golden Grahams…unless you didn’t leave any s’more bars for her!

  5. you crack me up. And you make me hungry….for realz. I love golden grahams…they are my guilty pleasure too… oh, and cinnamon toast crunch. These look fabulous and the no-baking sound perfect for this ridiculous heat. Make.It.Stop.

  6. Yes, stay away from google. It’s a killjoy! My mom actually used to make this when we were growing up. It was delicious, but I used to get so mad, because Golden Grahams are my favorite cereal, and she’d use them in these bars! I’ll just have to buy two boxes, one for these bars, and one to eat plain 🙂
