S'mores Bars

This has always been one of my favorite fall treats. I don't know why, but we usually only make them in the fall... so to me they are fall treats. My kids love helping me make them, and the whole panful is soon devoured. It's an easy, fun treat that requires no oven.

S'mores Bars

8 cups Golden Graham Cereal
5 cups miniature
marshmallows
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup light corn syrup
5 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup miniature
marshmallows

Measure and pour cereal into a large bowl. Butter a 13x9-inch pan. In large microwavable bowl, microwave 5 cups marshmallows, the chocolate chips, corn syrup and butter uncovered on High 2 to 3 minutes at 30 seconds intervals, stirring after every minute, until melted and smooth when stirred. Stir in vanilla.
Pour over cereal; quickly toss until completely coated. Stir in 1 cup marshmallows.
Press mixture evenly in pan, using buttered back of spoon. Let stand uncovered at least 1 hour, or refrigerate if you prefer a firmer bar. For squares, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Store loosely covered at room temperature up to 2 days.
Stove-Top Directions: Into large bowl, measure cereal. Butter 13x9-inch pan. In 3-quart saucepan, heat 5 cups marshmallows, the chocolate chips, corn syrup and butter over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted; remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Continue as directed above.
