Summer Yum: S'mores Cereal Marshmallow Treats

It's summer and when summer hits I crave all things s'mores. There is just
something yummy about the graham-marshmallow-chocolate combination. So,
when we were doing our weekly grocery shopping trip and I saw this new
Honey Maid S'mores Cereal I knew that it would make a great no-bake treat that
the whole family would love. So, I grabbed a couple of boxes, a bag of
marshmallows, mini chocolate chips, and mini chocolate bars to make my
creation come to life.

If you can make the infamous rice krispie treats, then you can make these. They
whip up in about 10 minutes total and after they've cooled and set you - you're
good to go. Well, unless you're my husband and you try to eat it out of the pot
while it's all ooey and gooey before I get a chance to put it into the pan.

{S'mores Cereal Marshmallow Treats}

7-8 cups Honey Maid S'mores Cereal
1 (10oz) bag marshmallows
1/4 cup butter
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup frozen mini chocolate chips
mini chocolate bars broken into individual pieces
1/2 cup melted chocolate chips (optional)


1. Coat your 9x13 pan with butter or cooking spray. I always forget to to this first,
but it really does make the whole process go so much smoother if you !

2. In a large pot, melt your 1/4 cup of butter on medium-low heat. Once the butter
has melted completely - remove from heat!

3. Dump in your 10oz bag of marshmallows and stir and stir and stir until all the
little marshmallows are melted and well combined with the butter.

4. Dump in the 1/4 tsp of sea salt. It really does give your treats a great flavor!

5. Next up, add in your Honey Maid S'mores Cereal and stir until every inch is
covered in marshmallow.

6. If you want to up your chocolate game, dump in a 1/2 cup of  FROZEN mini
chocolate chips. When they are frozen, you have a better chance of them not
melting completely.

7. Spread into your already buttered 9x13 pan. See! You did it at the beginning,
so you're not scrambling like me to get it done before the marshmallow treats
set up. 

8. Totally optional, but if you want more chocolate and you want them to be
pretty, nestle the mini chocolate candy bar pieces into the nooks and drizzle
some melted chocolate on top.

See! I told you they were easy! My non-s'mores loving middle child loves these
because they are full of chocolate, lighter on the marshmallow chunks, and super 
yummy. I love that the cereal already includes the classic s'mores ingredients.
If you're not crazy for chocolate like we are, you can skip all extra add-ins and
just go for the s'mores cereal because it has little chocolate cereal pieces in it too.

Cut up into squares or eat right out of the pan! They are delicious and the perfect
way to get your s'mores fix when there isn't a campfire handy!
