Golden Grahams Bars

  • Author: Lindsay
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 12 huge bars 1x


Golden Grahams Bars! Crunchy, chocolatey, and made with just FIVE ingredients. Even better: it’s no-bake a super easy to make. Winning!


  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 bag of mini marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 12-ounce box of Golden Grahams cereal (see notes)


  1. Prep: Set one cup of the mini marshmallows aside.
  2. Chocolate Mixture: Melt the butter, chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and vanilla in a large pot over medium heat until mostly smooth.
  3. Add Golden Grahams: Mix in the Golden Grahams cereal and remaining marshmallows. Stir to combine.
  4. Press Into Pan: Press into a 9×13 pan. Let them cool / solidify for an hour or two. Cut into 12 big bars and devour like a hungry Golden Grahams Bar wolf.


MAKE THESE ALREADY! They are so good.

Using wet hands helps to prevent sticking as you press the warm mixture into the pan.

When I made these, I added just a little less than the entire box of cereal. I would estimate 10 ounces. Here’s why: 1) I like to have a dessert bar that leans towards extra-sticky (higher goo-to-cereal ratio), and 2) it leaves me with a bowl or two of yummy cereal to eat.  It should work fine with the whole box if you just want to do a clean sweep of it, but as someone who has made a lot of these, I’m just giving you my cereal pro tip.
