These easy no bake s’mores bars taste like a trip down memory lane… Crunchy graham cracker cereal, sweet and gooey mini marshmallows, and all that silky smooth milk chocolate, what’s not to love?!
Elementary school seems like it was a lifetime ago — and I guess it kind of was… But I can still remember the thrill of walking into the cafeteria mid-day to find these s’mores bars on the lunch menu. Those were always the best days!
I mean, what’s not to love? Crunchy graham cracker cereal, sweet and gooey mini marshmallows, and all that silky smooth milk chocolate. Only two things could top them — impromptu spelling bees (I always won) and library day (new books, yay!). I guess you could say I was a bit of a nerd, lol.
My kids, on the other hand, wanted to tear into the bag immediately, as they do with all cereal as soon as it enters our home. It’s a running joke in our family that we spend more on cereal and milk each week than on produce and meat. And it’s very nearly true! They seriously DO down an inordinate amount of cereal on a weekly basis.
Which brings to me to why I love Malt-O-Meal Cereal so much: a) the HUGE 2 lb.+ size bags, b) the low prices, and c) the great taste. That’s pretty much the trifecta by which I judge every product I purchase during a grocery shopping trip. You know, because feeding five kids costs A LOT.
And? Truth be told, Malt-O-Meal would have had me at the resealable bag. I mean, why don’t all bagged products come with this feature?!?
How To Make S’mores Bars
Making these s’mores bars couldn’t possibly be any easier… We’re talking 5 minutes if you’re really hustling, 10 minutes tops.
Just heat mini marshmallows, milk chocolate chips, butter, and a small amount of corn syrup to a boil on the stove top. Pour this mixture over 8 cups of Malt-O-Meal Honey Graham Toasters cereal, and mix. Add in some reserved chocolate chips and mini marshmallows for texture, and press it all into a 9×13 pan.

Let it all cool and set up for about an hour — or just pop the pan into the freezer for about 15 minutes to speed things along (typically my method of choice). Slice into bars, and they’re ready to serve!
These s’mores bars are perfect for cookouts, after school snacks, last-minute bake sale treats (haven’t we all been there?), even spur of the moment family game nights with the Nintendo Switch. I highly recommend making a batch ASAP.
Win a Nintendo Switch from Post Cereals!
In case you’ve been living under a rock, the Nintendo Switch is sure to be one of the hottest toys this year — good to know if you’re planning for the holidays! My kids love that the Switch combines the power of a home console with the mobility of a handheld gaming device. It comes packaged with the main unit, left and right Joy-Con with a Joy-Con wrist strap for each, making it a multi-player experience right out of the box!
And I love the Switch based on Nintendo’s dedication to releasing family-friendly games, like the soon-to-be-released Super Mario Odyssey. As a long-time fan of all of the Super Mario games, I cannot wait for this new sandbox-style 3D Mario adventure to be released on October 27th! I’ve read that it’s packed with secrets and surprises, like new moves for Mario, new locales, and even a new character — Cappy, Mario’s new friend. I might even let my kids give it a try at some point…
