Golden Graham S'mores Bars

My, oh my... these are divine!  So simple and easy to make - barely more complex than Rice Krispie treats and 10x more delicious!  Think about this... Golden Grahams are a breakfast cereal, made with whole grains and fortified with vitamins and minerals... so this treat is actually good for you, too!  ;)  I've made these twice now, and they will definitely be a part of my regular repertoire.  (As seen on Macaroni & Cheesecake.)

Golden Graham S’mores Bars

1 12oz. package chocolate chips (chilled)
5 Tbsp. butter
1 10oz. bag mini marshmallows (approximately 6 c.)
1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
8 c. Golden Graham cereal (one 12oz. box)

Place package of chocolate chips in the freezer to chill.  (The colder they are the better).
Spray grease a 9x13 baking pan, set aside. 
Measure out your 5 (+1) c. of marshmallows, 5 Tbsp. butter, 1 tsp. vanilla, and 8 c. cereal (doing so will make it all easier and come together smoothly, I promise).

Meanwhile, melt butter in a pot over medium heat.
Once butter is melted, add in 5 cups of marshmallows and stir until almost completely melted. Stir in vanilla if desired.

Remove from heat and transfer butter mixture to a large mixing bowl and add cereal, stirring to coat.
Once cereal is coated, remove chocolate chips from freezer and add to cereal mixture.
Also add in the remaining 1 c. of marshmallows.
Gently stir until evenly distributed.

Press cereal mixture into prepared baking pan.
Cover and refrigerate until set.

Turn out onto cutting board and cut into squares. (Optional - we just cut them from the pan as we eat them.)
Keep stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Makes approximately 20-24 bars depending on how big you cut them.
