Total Time 1hour15minutes
Servings 24large bars
8cups (338g)Golden Grahams cereal
6cups (273g)miniature marshmallows,divided
1bag (2 cups total)milk chocolate chips,divided(258g for 1 and 1/2 cups chocolate chips)
5tablespoons (71g)unsalted butter,cut into cubes
1/4cuplight corn syrup
PREP: Generously grease a 9x13-inch pan and set aside. Place the Golden Grahams cereal in a very large bowl and set aside.
MARSHMALLOW MIXTURE: In another very large microwave-safe bowl, add in 5 cups miniature marshmallows, 1 and 1/2 cups chocolate chips, cubed butter, and corn syrup. Stir and then place in the microwave for 2-4 minutes, removing to stir every 20 seconds. When you remove the mixture every 20 seconds, stir for about 15-20 seconds making sure to really scrape the bottom, and then return to the microwave. Microwave until the mixture is just melted and smooth and don't microwave more than needed.
POUR OVER CEREAL: Once the mixture is smooth, stir in the vanilla. Pour the mixture over the cereal and gently but quickly toss to combine. Add in the remaining 1 cup marshmallows and 1/2 cup chocolate chips and stir until just incorporated.
PRESS INTO PAN: Pour into the prepared pan. Spray your hands with cooking spray and then gently press down the bars (Don't press them too hard or it will make the bars hard).
LET STAND: Uncovered, for an hour (refrigerate for firmer bars).
STORAGE: Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Bars are best eaten the first day they are made.
Use high-quality milk chocolate for best results. You’ll get both a better melt and better flavor. My favorite for these bars is either Ghirardelli® or Guittard®. Cheaper brands can have a waxier content that is far less flavorful and doesn't melt down as well.
Find a cereal you love. While Golden Grahams® cereal works great and is tasty, I'm partial to the off-brand (Malt O Meal®) Honey Graham Toasters.
