Golden Graham Marshmallow Bars Recipe 2023




  • 7 cups Golden Grahams cereal
  • 16 oz mini marshmallows (6 cups for melting, the rest for mixing)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2-3 Hershey bars (or your favorite chocolate)


  1. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat.
  2. Add 6 cups of mini marshmallows to the melted butter, stirring constantly until the marshmallows are completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
  3. Remove the saucepan from heat and add the Golden Grahams cereal to the marshmallow mixture. Stir until the cereal is evenly coated with the marshmallow mixture.
  4. Once the cereal is coated, add a handful of mini marshmallows to the mixture and stir to distribute them evenly. This will give the bars extra marshmallow goodness and texture.
  5. Spray a 9×13 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Transfer the Golden Graham mixture into the pan and spread it evenly, pressing down slightly to create a compact layer.
  6. Sprinkle additional mini marshmallows on top of the mixture, pressing them in slightly.
  7. Break the Hershey bars into small pieces and scatter them over the top of the marshmallow layer.
  8. Allow the bars to cool and set. You can speed up the process by placing them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  9. Once fully cooled, cut into bars using a sharp knife.
  10. Serve and enjoy these delicious Golden Graham Marshmallow Bars!

Here are some tips to make your Golden Graham Marshmallow Bars even more delightful:

  1. Quality Ingredients:
    • Use fresh and high-quality ingredients for the best flavor. Choose a good brand of Golden Grahams cereal and Hershey bars.
  2. Extra Marshmallows:
    • Don’t skimp on the marshmallows. The extra handful stirred into the mixture adds gooey pockets of sweetness. You can even add a few more on top for an extra marshmallowy treat.
  3. Chocolate Variety:
    • Experiment with different types of chocolate. Try milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or even flavored chocolate bars to add a unique twist to the bars.
  4. Flavor Additions:
    • Enhance the flavor by adding a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the melted marshmallow-butter mixture. This subtle addition can add depth to the taste.
  5. Mix-ins:
    • Consider adding additional mix-ins like chopped nuts, dried fruit, or even shredded coconut for added texture and flavor.
  6. Drizzle or Dip:
    • Once the bars are set, drizzle melted chocolate on top or dip them halfway in melted chocolate for an extra decadent touch.
  7. Sprinkle Magic:
    • Add sprinkles or colored sugar on top for a festive and visually appealing presentation, especially if you’re making these for special occasions.
  8. Chill Time:
    • While the bars can be enjoyed right away, allowing them to chill in the refrigerator for a bit longer can make them firmer and easier to cut into clean, neat squares.
  9. Custom Shapes:
    • Instead of cutting them into traditional bars, use cookie cutters to create fun shapes, especially if you’re making these for children or a themed event.
  10. Layered Delight:
    • Create layers by making a double batch of the marshmallow mixture, alternating with layers of chocolate and Golden Grahams. This can result in a visually appealing and delicious layered treat.
  11. Drizzle with Caramel:
    • Drizzle caramel sauce over the top before adding the chocolate for a delightful caramel-chocolate combination.

Remember, these tips are meant to inspire creativity, so feel free to tailor the recipe to your taste preferences and have fun experimenting!
