Test Kitchen Tips
Use a butter wrapper to press the cereal into the pan.
For a rich twist on a classic, add 1/4 cup of peanut butter to the marshmallows and stir a handful of chopped peanuts into the cereal.
Make a s’more s’more (and lots of friends) by using one of these bars (halved lengthwise) instead of the graham cracker used in a traditional s’more. Yes, we went there.

One night, my husband had some friends over to play poker and he requested these s’mores bars. They polished off the pan and asked for more! I shared the recipe, and now their families make them, too. —Rebecca Shipp, Beebe, Arkansas
