On the farm, fall is a busy time for us as we spend weeks and weeks harvesting the corn and soybeans.  Therefore, time together as a family around the bonfire seems to be limited, but so appreciated after time apart.

Our kids always look forward to s’mores, the classic campfire treat!  Though it’s nice to have them right off the campfire, it’s nice to be able to make these bars no matter the time of year!  With just a handful of simple ingredients and a little time, these are truly some of the easiest things to whip up!

Ingredients needed to make No Bake S'mores Bars.

Ingredients Needed

  • Golden Graham Cereal – These act as the “graham crackers” in the s’mores. They stay nice and crunchy, giving these bars such a delightful texture.
  • Mini Marshmallows – I mean, it couldn’t be called a s’more without ooey-gooey marshmallows, amiright?!
  • Corn Syrup – This helps give the soft, chewy texture to these bars; Dark or light corn syrup will work great.
  • Milk Chocolate Chips – Like a classic s’mores, milk chocolate is a very important piece of the puzzle! These chips are melted into the bars, so you get some in every bite.  You could also use dark chocolate chips if you prefer.
  • Butter – This helps with texture and flavor; salted or unsalted butter works great.
  • Vanilla Extract – Yep, you guessed it, FLAVOR!

How to make No Bake S’mores Bars

Start by preparing a 9×13 inch pan by greasing it well with cooking spray.  Measure out the cereal and marshmallows so they’re ready to go, too.  These bars come together super quickly, so having everything prepped is helpful!

Corn syrup in a saucepan with a wooden spoon.

Add the corn syrup and butter to a medium saucepan and place it over low heat.  Stir with a wooden spoon occasionally until the butter is melted and the mixture begins to bubble around the edges.

Remove from the heat and add the chocolate chips, stirring until melted completely.  Add the vanilla and stir until smooth.

Add the cereal and marshmallows; stir until they’re well-coated in the melted chocolate.  This will take a bit of stirring, but it will come together!

Pour into the prepared pan and spread to an even layer.  You’ll want to let them cool a bit before cutting into squares (place them in the fridge for 30 minutes and you should be good!).  

Storing No Bake S’mores Bars

I typically cover my 9×13 pan with plastic wrap or transfer the cut bars to an airtight container. They can be stored in the fridge, but I recommend leaving them at room temperature.

How Long do Cereal Bars Last?

Well, if your household is anything like ours, they won’t last long!! But that’s just because they were eaten so quickly, we never have to worry about them going “bad!” 

However, if you do find yourself with leftovers, I recommend eating them within 2-3 days. If they sit much longer than that, the cereal starts to soften, so they’re not as good as when they’re fresh! (However, they’re safe to consume for several more days).
