Indoor S'mores

I grew up in a family that went camping all the time. Many of my fond childhood/teenage memories were born on camping trips. Good, quality, fun family time!! Sleeping in a tent, swimming in the ocean, flying kites, riding quads, staying up too late, dutch oven breakfasts, apple turnovers, night-long campfires, and of corse S'mores! S'mores are a camping necessity!

But how often do we go camping? It doesn't seem right that such a fabulously delicious dessert can only be eaten on rare occasions.. does it? Have you heard of Indoor S'mores? Maybe I am a little behind but I only became aware of these a few years ago, and for the first time today I made them! They are made in a similar way to rice-krispy treats. These certainly do the trick to solve that S'mores craving that you've been having! Enjoy!

Indoor S'mores
5 TBS butter
5 cups mini marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla
8 cups Golden Grahams cereal
1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
1 additional cup marshmallows

(The original recipe calls for corn syrup. In my opinion, its not necesary and is quite bad for you, so I left it out. I also made other minor changes. But if you would like the original recipe, see the "source" link below the picture)

Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray and set aside. In a large non-stick pan, melt your butter on medium low heat. 

Then add 5 cups marshmallows. 

Stir until about half-melted. 

Add your vanilla and stir. Then add your cereal. Stir until completely coated.

Add 1 cup chocolate chips and additional 1 cup marshmallows.Spread into prepared pan and top with remaining chocolate chips. Let cool. Cut into squares and ENJOY!
