  • Cook corn syrup and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes to a boil just around edges. Remove from heat; stir in butter, baking soda and vanilla. (OR in a 1-quart microwave-safe bowl, microwave on HIGH (100%) for about 2 minutes or until syrup boils.)

  • Pour syrup over cereal mixture and stir to coat completely. Transfer to a greased 13 x 9-inch pan; press firmly to level. Place chocolate bars in a single layer over cereal mixture; sprinkle with marshmallows.

  • Bake in a preheated 400 degrees F oven for 5 to 8 minutes, or until marshmallows are puffed and lightly browned. Remove from oven and top with mini chocolate chips.

  • Refrigerate for 1 hour until firm; cut into squares. Store in tightly closed container for up to 2 days.

This recipe is a disaster!I followed the directions precisely---including putting it in a well greased pan---Now that it has cooled it is bonded to the pan! Unbelievable! So now I have to make something else for the bake sale and I am out a pan because that stuff is never coming out! edited to add---I was able to salvage 12 squares out of this recipe and wash the pan with a huge amount of effort! They really stuck to the bottom! They were sweet but tasty. I wouldn't make they again though way too much work to cut the bars! Read More

Oh my goodness these were a hit at a family bday party. The kids ran over to the pan after eating their meal and dove in. They all said they were so good. I will make these again. The only thing I had to do different is use Pure Vanilla extract. Don't know where to find the other extract. We live in rural Illinois not to many choices to shop. YUMMY even my brother loved them and he is very picky. Read More

I don't understand the bad reviews. I followed the recipe exactly and it was fine. It got rave reviews when taken to a holiday treat table at work. Gave a pan to all of my family (7 siblings) for christmas with the pan. They love them I've been told they are addicting and have been made numerous times by some of my siblings. Shrug. They loved it the bars set up after being allowed to cool. I did not find the syrup to be an issue or the time it took to make it. Nothing stuck to the pan. I used non stick pans and sprayed liberally with PAM. Came out like the recipe states and looks like the photo shown. Thanks for sharing this recipe here!!! Read More

These taste like s'mores but you'd be better off just making s'mores. This recipe takes longer to prepare costs more is just as messy and basically impossible to get out of the pan! Read More

A very rich dessert. You definitely have to wait for it to cool before cutting or serving or it's a major disaster. Read More
