Holiday Treats : Golden Grahams S'mores

So, as I said yesterday, I'm doing some baking this year. Yeah, I know, I bake all the damn time but cakes and treats are very different. Treats are cookies and bars and weird cereal combinations all melded together by the magic of mini marshmallows. Treats are what I ate as a kid, cakes were for "occasions." That being said, I hope you enjoy the recipes, none of which are difficult or obscure or anything so you have no excuse not to join me in my sugar coma.

We were big fans of Golden Grahams as kids and my mom (or maybe my meemaw, I don't remember) would make these as an alternative to rice crispie treats. They are addictive like crack. See, I wanted to take a picture for you nice people but we couldn't stop eating them. My jeans are already tight and this is only day one. I'm screwed.

Golden Grahams S'mores

3/4 c. light corn syrup
3 tbsp. butter
1 pkg. milk chocolate chips (2 c.)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 (12 oz.) pkg. Golden Grahams cereal
3 c. mini marshmallows

Grease 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan. Heat syrup, butter and chips to boiling, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal in bowl, toss until coated. Fold in marshmallows 1 cup at a time. Press in pan with buttered hands or spoon. Let stand 1 hour, cut into squares. Store loosely covered at room temperature up to 2 days.

"Oh those golden grahams!" (sung to 70's commercial jingle). Those look delicioso.

It was me but I also did Rice Krispie treats as well. My fav was always the Golden Grahams and your's as well. How is my baby boy?
