Chewy S'more Golden Graham Squares

bowl of golden graham cereal, small marshmallows, chocolate chips and a stick of butter

Ingredients: 

  • 12 oz. Golden Graham Cereal
  • 1 c Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 10 oz. Mini-Marshmallows
  • 6 tbs. Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

Instructions:

1. Grab a 9 x 9 baking pan and line with wax paper. Set aside.
2. Place chocolate chips in freezer, to prevent from melting later in recipe. 
3. Pour your golden grahams into a large bowl and set aside.
4. In medium sized pot, melt the butter on medium-low heat, making sure it doesn't burn or brown. Once it has melted, stir in marshmallows. Stir constantly until melted, thick, smooth and creamy. Add vanilla.
5. Pour melted marshmallow mixture onto the golden grahams, and mix immediately. Once cereal is coated and gooey, add in 3/4 of your chocolate chips. Mix well and then pour mixture into your prepared pan. Warning: it'll be sticky!
6. Pat it down evenly (tip: you may want to spray cooking spray on your hands so they don't stick to the mixture!). Then, sprinkle the rest of your chocolate chips on to the top and press them down. Place into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour, or until solid. Then, cut into squares and serve!

Now, for the Grand Finale.... Drum Roll, Please! 

Rustic Cake with Farm Animals

3 tiered cake topped with farm animals

This DIY rustic farm animal cake was fairly easy to make, dare I say! I searched recipes for "rustic" cake on Pinterest and baked the cake out of a box to save time from making from scratch!  I will say having a cake leveler and scraper does make this cake baking experience much easier than making without. I highly recommend you purchase these necessary tools. The wood stump came from Michaels as well as the moss. As for the top of the cake, I melted semi-sweet chocolate chips and used this as the frosting... this provided a sturdy platform for our cute farm animal friends (I am sure frosting would work great, too). The tiny forest trees as well as the animals I found at Michaels. Aren't they adorable for topping a cake? Really completes the "woodsy" vibes I was going for! 

These littles were happy campers as they enjoyed their sweet treats! They were definitely asking for s'more.
