I was first introduced to this delicious dessert when I was in sixth grade (almost 30 years ago – yikes!). Every year, the sixth grade class would go on a 3 day/2 night campout. One night I remember watching a movie and the chaperones started bringing out these snacks. I didn’t know what they were (can you imagine? Not knowing what a s’more is?). They were delicious and other kids seemed to know what they were. Someone told me what they were called and from that point on, I was in love. Well, with s’mores anyway.
Then my mom found this recipe on the back of a box of Golden Grahams. Delicious! I made tons of these growing up!
Indoor S’mores8 cups Golden Grahams 1 1/2 cups Milk Chocolate Chips 6 cups mini marshmallows 5 T butter 1 t vanilla 1/4 cup light corn syrup (opt) Melt 5 cups marshmallows, chocolate chips, butter, and corn syrup in a sauce pan. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla. Grease a 9×13 pan. Pour cereal into a large bowl and pour marshmallow mixture over it stirring until evenly coated. Stir in remaining marshmallows (I always add some extras too). Press mixture into pan. Cool at least one hour or until firm. Cut into bars. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

For some time I’ve been toying with starting a blog (again).Â I have a personal blog to keep friends and family in the loop.Â I had a camping blog, but I couldn’t come up with enough material to keep it going.Â I have so many ideas about what to write about.Â Sometimes, we’ll be out and about and I think, “gee, this would make a great blog post,” but then I think, “it doesn’t really belong on a blog about my family.”Â So, that brings me to my newest venture – a blog about those things.Â Topics can range from homeschooling to Florida life, from couponing to camping, and of course sewing (I do have an Etsy store).Â Welcome to SewMona.Â I hope you come back!
