We decided to come up with some Smores recipes to do without a camp fire since it is way too dangerous to have camp fires right now. I have a couple assistants helping me with recipes this week so hopefully we will be able to share a bunch with you.
The first recipe we are sharing is for Smores Bars. We found this recipe on AllRecipes.com. You need:
4 cups Honey Graham Cereal
3 tablespoons butter
6 cups marshmallows
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
The first step is to coat a 9x13 dish with cooking spray and set it aside for later.
Next, measure out your cereal and place in a mixing bowl so it is ready for later.
In a saucepan, melt the butter over low heat and then add the marshmallows and corn syrup. Keep an eye on the saucepan so the marshmallows don't burn.

Since our marshmallows didn't melt the way they were supposed to, the mixture didn't get fully mixed together but they were still really good. We packed the bars between sheets of wax paper (same way I pack Rice Krispie Treats) on our fishing trip today and they worked great when we needed a sweet snack. They will be really good on a camping trip when we start craving Smores.
If you have a Smores recipe that doesn't use a campfire, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and my assistants and I will try it out.
