S'more bars...mmm!

It seems like Pinterest has been chock-full of s'more inspired recipes lately. While a number of them have caught my eye, I didn't really have the spare time to bake up something as intricate as this pie:

Or these insane s'more cups:

But these bar treats looked so quick to throw together and only had like 5 ingredients. Turns out they were a great choice! Despite the quick and simple recipe, they were totally delicious and were a huge hit at our staff meeting. I highly recommend you give them a try :)

Golden Grahams S'mores Bars
Makes approx. 24 bars

1 ten-ounce bag mini marshmallows (about 6 cups)
1 twelve-ounce bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
5 Tbsp. butter
8 cups Golden Graham cereal (about 1 small box)
1 tsp. vanilla

1. Place chocolate chips in the freezer for a couple hours to ensure they don't melt when you're assembling the bars.

2. Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Add 5 cups of the marshmallows and stir until mostly melted. Remove from heat and add vanilla.

3. In a large bowl, pour marshmallow mixture over Golden Grahams. Stir with a wooden spoon until cereal is mostly coated. Add in chocolate chips and remaining 1 cup of marshmallows. Stir until everything is well incorporated. You will want to work as quickly as possible at this step, because the marshmallow mixture will stiffen and become less workable quite fast.

4. Spread mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Press firmly. Cover and refrigerate until set. Then turn out onto a cutting board and cut into smaller bars. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator to prevent cereal from going stale.
