Easy No Bake S’mores Bars Recipe

I began making these no-bake s’mores bars years ago after seeing the recipe on the back of the cereal box. Don’t you just love those? I develop recipes for Brands professionally now, and have had some of my own recipes featured on various brand packaging, I know firsthand they can sometimes be a valuable resource for using a product. At the time I began making these, it was a fantastic way to enjoy the flavor of s’mores without my small children getting too close for comfort to the campfire. My children are older now and those days have changed,  however, our love for these s’mores bars have not. They remain an all-time family favorite and the chewy gooey texture just never gets old. Another fun s’mores treat the kiddos will love are these S’mores Cupcakes from Garnish & Glaze.
