Our family were huge S’mores addicts — until we moved to Florida.
Up north, fall fun was marked by cool nights, a fire in the firepit, and all the S’mores fixings. Now that we live in Florida, there are only a few nights all year that are cool enough for an outdoor fire to be fun, and those nights are usually in January. We take advantage of those cooler nights, but we still miss the celebration of fall with the making of S’mores.
This fall, we discovered Honey Maid S’mores cereal at Walmart. Although, it is not the same as roasting marshmallows over a fire (too hot!), it gives us the nostalgic feel of fall without the heat. Plus, I made the cereal into bars so we could have an easy S’mores dessert to help us celebrate fall.
I made the bars just like the I would make Rice Krispie treats.
The kids loved them; I loved them, and even my husband loved them. He did not know I had made them primarily to try out the cereal, and he said to me a day later, “Hey, those things you made with this cereal (holding up the cereal) were pretty good!” He usually doesn’t like sweet treats, so this was a high compliment coming from him.
Here’s the recipe:
- Melt 1/2 stick butter or margarine.
- Add 10 ounces (1 bag) mini marshmallows and melt.
- Remove marshmallow mixture from heat and add 6 cups of Honey Maid S’mores cereal.
- Spread into a buttered 9″ x 13″ pan.
- Let cool, cut into squares, and eat!
The kids loved them! The pan of Honey Maid S’mores Bars was gone in one day. (I had my share of the Honey Maid S’mores Bars too!)
It was a good thing I bought two boxes, as the kids ate the cereal like regular as cereal for breakfast, and they also packed some to take as a snack for school.
Overall, we decided this cereal was a complete success. You can see Kiley enjoying the cereal for breakfast and Kristi having fun with her Honey Maid S’mores Bar.
You can pick up a box of Honey Maid S’mores at your local Walmart and make your own Honey Maid S’mores Bars — or for whatever else you choose!
