Even though S’mores season is fully upon us, I’ve been craving S’mores Bars. Not the ones I’ve been finding on Pinterest lately, but the ones I grew up with. The ones I remember having at church potlucks as a little girl. The ones with Golden Grahams, chocolate and marshmallows. Do you know the ones I’m talking about? But now Golden Grahams don’t work for our family because they contain wheat. So I was thinking about them the other day and thought, hey, what about Puffins?! They might replace the Golden Grahams nicely. Now, I know, that some of you may not be able to have Puffins because they are made with oat flour (which probably isn’t a Gluten Free oat flour and the oats may have been cross contaminated from wheat grown nearby). Oats have not ever caused a problem at our home, so we use them. Always follow YOUR doctor’s recommendations for your specific needs. If you cannot safely eat Puffins, then try another Gluten Free cereal like Honey Rice Puffins or Gorilla Munch and I’m sure these would still be delicious! This recipe is just about as quick and easy as Rice Krispie Bars.
This recipe has been adapted from Golden Grahams.
8 c Gluten Free Cereal (like Honey Rice Puffins or Gorilla Munch)
6 c miniature marshmallows (divided)
1 1/2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 c light corn syrup

1 t vanilla
1. Butter 9 x 13 pan. Melt 5 c marshmallows, chocolate chips, corn syrup and butter. Stir in vanilla.
2. Pour mixture over cereal and toss quickly until completely coated. Stir in 1 c marshmallows.
3. Press mixture evenly into pan using empty butter wrapper. Let stand about 1 hour or refrigerate.
