Guys.. this is my (not so) secret party dessert. It once was my secret party dessert weapon, but now I’m sharing it with you.

Every time I bring these indoor s’mores bars to a party, potluck, church, etc, people are like “WHAT ARE THESE?!”

Let me introduce you to s’mores rice krispie bars.

It’s like a traditional rice krispie treat but you replace the rice krispie cereal with broken graham crackers. People go nuts for them.

Keeping in tune with true s’mores fashion, we added extra marshmallows and hershey’s chocolate bar pieces to these graham cracker rice krispies.

They are the perfect no bake dessert to bring to parties because you can whip up a whole pan in 10 minutes.

Plus, I think they are better than s’mores bars with golden grahams. Golden grahams cereal can be really sweet. Honey graham crackers have a good plain base like rice krispie cereal.

S’mores Bar Ingredients

  • box of graham crackers, broken into smaller pieces
  • mini marshmallows
  • hershey’s chocolate bars
  • butter

How to Make S’mores Bars

You’ll make these the same way you make rice krispies because the marshmallowy base is the same.

  1. In a large pot over low heat, combine the butter and all of the marshmallows except reserve 1/3 cup for later. Stir until the mixture is melted. Remove the pan from the heat.
  2. Add the broken graham crackers to the marshmallow mixture and stir to combine.
  3. Add in the 1/3 cup of reserved marshmallows and 4 broken hershey’s bars. You could substitute chocolate chips for the hershey’s bars. Stir well to combine.
  4. Evenly press the s’mores bars into the pan and allow them to cool before cutting.

Can you freeze s’more rice krispie treats?

Yes, you can! Cut the no bake s’mores bars into squares, then wrap each square with plastic wrap. Be sure to use enough wrap so each bar is thoroughly covered. Then place the bars in a ziploc bag, remove the air and store in the freezer for up to 6 weeks.

To thaw the bars, place the bag on the counter and let it come to room temperature.

Want them extra marshmallow-y?

Use two 10 oz bags instead of one 16 oz bag. Reserve 1/2 cup marshmallows to add in at the end when mixing in the chocolate bars.

For a stellar presentation, press some of the chocolate bars and marshmallows on top of the bars once they are in the pan.

S’mores are so good and such a classic summer treat, we wanted to come up with another way to enjoy graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows together. And no fire is required for this recipe!
