No Bake S'mores Granola Bars
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt (I like a heaping 1/4 teaspoon)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cup quick oats
1 cup rice krispies
1/3 cup mini marshmallow (I cut mine in half)
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (I may had add a few more)
Line an 8x8-inch square baking pan with parchment, extending it up two sides, or foil. Spray the parchment with a nonstick cooking spray.
In a mixing bowl, combine oats and rice krispies. Set aside.
In a medium sized sauce pan, add the butter, brown sugar, honey and salt. Cook over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves and the mixture begins to bubble. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour over oat mixture and stir until well coated. Next, stir in marshmallows.
Pour mixture into the prepared baking dish. Press mixture down firmly. Sprinkle the mini chocolate chips over the top and gently press into the granola bars with your hands. Allow granola bars to cool for about an hour (the fridge speeds this process up). Cut directly down the center and then slice into 10 bars. Store granola bars in an airtight container (I put mine in a Ziploc and keep them in the freezer).
*I'm not a huge marshmallow fan, but I think next time I would use a 1/2 cup of marshmallow because my little ones really liked them.
