I’m not going to lie to you… I’m exceptionally excited about today’s recipe. White Chocolate Marshmallow S'more Chex Bars. Say that 10 times fast and then run to the market immediately and get ready to make these.
White Chocolate Marshmallow S'more Chex Bars are literally my ideal summertime snack. They combine all my favorite things in life. Cereal. Marshmallows. Chocolate. Salt. In case you hadn’t noticed, various Chex cereals have showed up before in 2 of the MOST popular recipes on WGC - here and here. They are the same recipe but for 2 different holidays. Duh.
Today it’s front and center in these Bars. So after you have a bowl for breakfast, use the rest of the box and make something new! Chex is more than just a box of cereal – and today it’s a fun summer dessert / snack / treat to bring camping! (although let’s be honest, I’m not a camper! Glamping… any day… but roughing it in the woods isn’t on brand). Chex is simple and delicious and these bars the epitome of that as well. Rice Chex and Cinnamon Chex mixed together with melted marshmallows and topped with chocolate chips… pure perfection. I can’t think of any person in the entire would who wouldn’t want some of these! Plus - it’s gluten free so if you’re cooking for a crowd, this is a crowd friendly dessert! It’ll get the party started in no time!
So have it! My reinvented way of making s’mores for all your summer snacking needs. Make them this week / weekend and invite me over! Or at least tag me on insta so I can live vicariously though you!!
