S'mores Bars

I have had such a sweet tooth recently and I am running low on lots of baking ingredients so there was a big limit on what I could make without granulated sugar and brown sugar.  I looked at a ton recipes the other day and remembered a s'mores recipe that I saw which I could change some stuff and make it work with what I had on hand.  I didn't save the recipe so I searched through my history... couldn't find it.  I opened google and started the search.  Luckily I found it!!!  In Katrina's Kitchen had Cinnamon Toast S'mores Bars that were super cute.  I didn't have fluff (or have a ever!) or those cute little marshmallows but I was set on making these.  I melted the butter and added a bag of marshmallows.

Then I got out the Frosted Toast Crunch which everyone taste tested when I got it and said that it tasted like marshmallow already so I figured that it was a perfect choice.  I poured 4 cups in my measuring cup to get ready.

Then I measured 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips so that I was ready to pour them in the pot.

Then I greased my 9x13 inch baking pan.  All the while stirring my marshmallows which were slowly melting and driving me crazy because I had to change the temperature a million times so they wouldn't burn.  After they were melted, I dumped the 4 cups of Frosted Toast Crunch into the hot pan and mixed them all up.  They weren't really mixing in well but I kept stirring.  I added the additional 1 cup of cereal and it was a mess.  I decided to add the chocolate chips and they started melting quickly in the pan!!!  UGH!  Must read directions, it says to pour the marshmallows into the cereal.  I guess I have made too many rice krispie treats in my time.  I dumped it all in my prepared pan to try to figure out if I could mix it up at all and get them to form into bars.  I greased a sheet of plastic wrap and moved all of the cereal into bars while causing chocolate to be everywhere.  I sprinkled a few more chocolate chips on top per the recipe and got the following:
It doesn't look too bad so I cut it into bars and they do look like a little a mess but they tasted pretty good!
I hope that you try to make them too and maybe do a little better.  I am going try them again and maybe do it right next time :)  Here is the recipe so that you can make them too.
