Who doesn't love ooey, gooey s'mores?  They are synonymous with summer, am I right? I love that you can now enjoy this iconic summer treat anytime of the year!


While I'm not a huge fan of traditional s'mores, I do love the flavor combination of milk chocolate, graham, and marshmallow. That's why I'm always on the look out for ways to get those flavors untraditionally, like in these S'mores bars! Let me just say, a box of Golden Graham cereal I had in the pantry was my inspiration...and then it just exploded from there! 

How do you make S'mores Krispie Treats?


If you can make rice krispie treats, you can make S'mores Krispie Treats! Would you believe, I am a terrible krispie treat maker? Really, it's true.  What should be a simple mix and go recipe always seems to give me woes.  Maybe I over think the whole thing.  I seriously do not know what my issue is. However, when I made this recipe, these S'mores Krispie Treats came out perfect the first time.


Seriously good.


And I didn't screw them up! That's how easy this recipe is!

A word of caution: When you make S'mores Krispie treats, you've got to work quick! You will find when the pips meet the warm marshmallow coating, they start to melt FAST!


What is a pip you ask?  According to Hershey's® a pip is what the breakable sections of the Hershey Milk Chocolate bar are called.  I may have overworked a few pips into the treats when I added them, but if you are quick, you can get them in there without much melting happening!  


Hershey® Milk Chocolate "pip"


To cut these into bars, I just sprayed a glass 13" x  9" casserole pan with cooking spray, then lifted the entire thing out of the pan with a spatula and then cut into pieces on a cutting board.  But you could also use some parchment to make a sling to allow for easy removal too. 


These krispie treats are loved by kids and adults alike!  My crew gobbled them up the night I made them...so I guess I'll be making another batch for this weekend!


Feel free to customize this recipe to whatever flavors suite you!  Add in peanut butter or use peanut butter cups in place of the pips!  The choice is yours.

  2. So yummy- is there any combination better than graham, chocolate, and marshmallows? I think not. Golden Grahams are pretty much my favorite sweet cereal of all time!

    1. I never buy Golden Grahams, but thought they would work well with this recipe stepping in for the graham crackers...and they did. The cereal itself didn't taste too sweet either! Very good. Thanks for visiting Nora!!

  11. I made this recipe the very evening after I read your blog. I've made it several time since. The second time I added in one cup of roasted and salted peanuts. It took this already awesome snack over the top. Thanks Renee for a wonderful treat.

  14. Is it easy to make a double batch of these? I need two pans

  15. Would it be easier to freeze the pips so they won't start melting so fast? I'm going to whip up a batch for my brother to take to his coworkers...otherwise known as the Plague of Locusts. They devour goodies in a flash.

  17. How do you make it so the cereal doesn't get soggy? I like it to stay crisp.

    1. I don't think you can keep the cereal crisp.

  18. I'm not sure it's possible to keep the cereal crisp, because the marshmallow will always soften it. Just like in any Krispy treat recipe.

  19. I've made this recipe now - both with wonderful results! The first time was for a swim meet concession sale (they went so fast!). This time, to Girl Scout camp (we are likely to be rained-out of campfires!) Such a hit!
