S'More Bars
  • Servings: 4 doz
  • 4 cups (14 ounces) rolled oats
  • 4 cups (4 1/2 ounces) Rice Krispies cereal
  • 3/4 cup (5 1/4 ounces) sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick, 4 ounces) unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) water
  • 1/2 cup (5 1/2 ounces) corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups (6 ounces) miniature marshmallows
  • 1 1/2 cups (9 ounces) chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 425º.
  2. Lightly grease a half-sheet (18x13-inch) pan, or two 9x13-inch pans.
  3. Place the oats on the prepared pan(s).
  4. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent edges from burning.
  5. They won't brown, but should begin to smell toasty.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven.
  7. Transfer the oats to a bowl and add the cereal.
  8. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, butter, water, corn syrup, and salt.
  9. Bring the mixture to a boil and boil for 5 minutes, or until the temperature reaches 250º on a candy thermometer.
  10. Remove the syrup from the heat and pour it over the oats and cereal, tossing to combine.
  11. Add 1 1/2 cups of the marshmallows and stir again until well combined.
  12. Place the mixture on the prepared pan, patting it flat.
  13. Press the mixture into the pan; using the lightly greased back of another half-sheet pan works well.
  14. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 1/2 cups marshmallows and the chocolate chips.
  15. Bake the bars for 4 to 5 minutes, until the marshmallows have puffed an are slightly brown. Remove the bars from the oven and cool for about 10 minutes on a rack.
  16. Cut into squares while still warm.
  17. The easiest way to do this is to use a baker's bench knife to cut the bars into long strips while still in the pan, then transfer each strip to a cutting board to cut into bars.
