Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 8 cups Golden Grahams cereal
  • 3.5 ounces marshmallow creme 1/2 small container
  • 10 ounce mini marshmallows
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 Hershey Bars broken into pieces, optional

Instructions

  • Melt butter in a large dutch oven over medium heat.  Once the butter starts to melt, add the marshmallow creme. Over low heat, stir to combine.
  • When butter and marshmallow creme are combined add 5 ounces of regular mini marshmallows.  Stir to combine.
  • When the marshmallows are nearly melted remove from heat and add the cereal about four cups at a time. Stir well. Add chocolate chips and remaining marshmallows, stir well.
  • Pour into a 9x13 pan.  Wet hands and smooth out the top or pat down with the butter wrapper.  Sprinkle Hershey bar pieces over the top. Cool before serving.

Notes

  • I rarely ever say this, but this is one recipe that I can't tell the difference between using butter or margarine
  • Marshmallow creme can be left out to decrease gooeyness
  • Amount of cereal can be increased to decrease gooeyness
  • More chocolate chips can be mixed in or sprinkled on top to increase chocolate flavors
  • Marshmallow is the dominant flavor in this recipe, so adjust ingredients as desired
  • Use wetted fingers or a butter wrapper to smooth out the top of the bars
  • Don't worry about getting the marshmallows totally melted on the stove, there is plenty of heat to keep melting later on
  • These bars freeze well
