Golden Grahams S’mores Bars

Golden Grahams S’mores Bars

I have a farmer friend.

His name is Tyler.

Our visit to his farm revealed a few things:

  1. Farms are pretty.
  2. Don’t wear sandals on the farm.
  3. Fainting goats are so weird but hilariously cute.
  4. I will have a piglet for a pet someday.
  5. Tyler cooks.

That’s right. Farmer T cooks.

And when Farmer T cooks, he doesn’t forget dessert.

Pan of Golden Grahams S’mores Bars

I would go so far as to say that they were the best smores bars I’ve ever had, ever, and I don’t take that statement lightly. That’s why I made them myself within 24 hours of returning home, shortly after showering off farm smells and downloading 1,000 pictures of the piglets onto my computer.

These are perfect for summer get-togethers because, simply put, they’re BOMB. I did that just to mess with you, by the way.

The real reason they’re perfect is because everyone loves them, they’re portable, they’re easy to make, and the chocolate doesn’t get all over everybody’s everything, unless you face plant into the pan. Is there anything better in this world than gooey chocolate filling in between crispy cereal and puffy mallows? At this moment, with a smores bar in each of my hands, my answer is a resounding no.

Face planting in this would be so amazing right now.

  1. Mmmm, I remember having these as a kid. Why haven’t I had them in 20 years?!

  2. These sound delightful! Yum!

  3. Golden Grahams were my FAVORITE cereal growing up! I usually don’t like s’mores, but I might be able to make an exception with these…

  4. I’ve had my eye on those for a long time. Sounds like I need to make it happen.

  5. Ok, these look so easy and amazing! Adding Golden Grahams to the grocery list and preparing to face plant… :)

  6. Holy crap, these look awesome!! I love Golden Grahams cereal!

  7. I have never had s’mores. It’s such a shame. Those look easier to make than to wait for a camping opportunity!

    • No. Please tell me you’re lying. If you don’t have a campfire where you can make one immediately, you need to make these NOW.

    I seriously love Golden Grahams. These sound wonderful!

  9. We have our own version of this recipe and they are amazing. We usually melt the marshmallow all the way, but yours look amazing. Yum!

  10. They look so simple but delicious!

  11. Ah! These look sort of like Rice Krispies Treats and S’mores got together….one thing led to another…. and a beautiful love child was born. I definitely need to try this with a gluten free cereal! Just bought some Rice Chex…sounds BOMB! Haha

  12. Golden Grahams is my faaavorite cereal! My mom would always make it into ooey gooey bars and they are seriously the best! Glad to have a recipe :)

  13. These look divine!

  14. These look crazy good! I once made G.G. smores bars but didnt put chocolate in them other than just choc chips. YOU have the right idea!

  15. YUM! These look so gooey and delicious. I have always loved these bars and this version looks particularly fantastic!

  16. YES to the faceplant. OMG these look so ridiculously delicious. Totally evoking childhood memories….the farm smells would definitely be worth it for these.

  17. Lindsay – these look INCREDIBLE! So simple and yet…. soooooo tasty. Who doesn’t love a portable s’more?!

  18. Camille says:

    I love these! I made them for me and the husband… three times… two straight weeks in a row… And gained a few… But boy they were worth it.

  19. Fainting goats cracks me up! I can’t do farm smells either, but I can definitely do s’mores in bar form :) Love these!

  20. These look to die for! They’d be perfect as a midnight snack.

  21. Talk about major drool action! Somebody get this girl a bib!

  22. Portable s’mores are a good thing for me!! (or a very bad one. . .)

  23. Rebecca D. says:

    Can’t wait to make these. My kids think I’m wonderful when I make things with chocolate and sugar : )

  24. Brittany says:

    Wow, I will definitely be whippin’ those up soon! I love your blog and your pictures are always so gorgeous!

  25. I think the biggest question is why didn’t you post any of those 1000 piglet pictures?? These look amazing btw :)

  26. Carmen McD says:

    Making these immediately. Cannot wait one more second.

  27. Cindy VandeKamp says:

    I sub Gluten free chex( 4 cups honey nut 4 cups cinnamon) they are great.

  28. I forgot to add the vanilla. Is that a big deal? Waiting for them to cool…..can’t wait to try them!

  29. Just made these the second time and replaced a half cup of the chocolate chips with butterscotch ones- Absolutely delicious!! (Of course, the original ones are HEAVENLY, but I’m not a huge chocolate fan) I also like to play around with the cereals. My brothers adore Cocoa Puffs and all things chocolate, so I’ve used those as well.
    I love this recipe- thank you, Lindsay!!

  30. I just made these and they turned out wonderful. They actually really taste like s’mores. Thanks for the recipe!

  31. Do I have to use the corn syrup? Can I replace it with something or just leave it out? Will it change the recipe any? If you happen to know any of these please let me know before I attempt. Thanks so much!!

  32. Just discovered your site. Looks really great, not complicated and easy to navigate through. I love GG & they’re on sale .. So guess what I’m making for Super Bowl Sunday for my kids. Especially since Monday is my sons birthday and I know he is going to love these !!! Hope you get your piglet someday. Yorkies are similar in the canine world lol. Thanks again for a beautiful site.

  33. I love these! And so does everyone else when I make them. I just made them without the light corn syrup and they turned out just fine.

  34. JoAnn Nicoletti says:

    Saw this on my local news program and found your site when searching for the recipe. Made them today but pressed into a sheet pan for a thinner treat. I brought them to a meeting tonight and they were a huge hit. I was even asked for the recipe!

  35. Kaitlin Adams says:

    I made these and they were really good! Except the next day the golden grahams in the bars weren’t crunchy anymore and really soft so it was super chewy. I used dark chocolate instead, is that what caused that?

    • Hmm.. I don’t think the dark chocolate would cause that to happen. Likely, these bars just have a pretty short shelf life and are best eaten the day the are made. For storage, an airtight container would be best to maintain the original texture. Better yet, jut eat them all up right away! 😉

  36. Thanks for posting this. I remember these from when I was a kid, and they don’t put the recipe on the box of Golden Grahams anymore. When I made it, I added a few extra chips and marshmallows to the top while it was still warm. Turned out great. Thanks again. E
