S'mores Cookie Bars

S’mores have long been enjoyed around a roaring bonfire at camping or on the beach. Bring back memories of those warm weather evenings year-round with these easy-to-make, no bake tasty treats!

Lightly spray baking pan with vegetable pan spray.

In large bowl, combine cereal and crushed graham crackers. In 2-quart microwave-safe bowl, place butter and sugar. Microwave on HIGH 30-45 seconds or until butter is melted.

Set aside 1 cup marshmallows. Add remaining marshmallows to bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1-1½ minutes or until marshmallows are melted, stirring every 30-seconds. Immediately pour marshmallow mixture over cereal mixture in bowl; stir well. Add chocolate chips and reserved marshmallows; stir until well coated.

Turn mixture into prepared pan; press mixture down firmly. Cool completely. Cut into squares or shapes using cookie cutters.

Makes 24 squares.

Cook's Tip: Marshmallows swell and rise during microwaving. Always stir every 30 seconds to avoid bubbling over.
