Bake Sale Goodies!

Last Wednesday, Kathryn and I made goodies for the GA’s Bake Sale. That evening, the girls went around church selling treats to all the folks there for Wednesday night activities. All proceeds went to the Lottie Moon Offering, and the girls made over $400!

The “indoor s’mores” we made require ooey gooey chocolatey goodness…

I think this little vanilla bottle is so cute because it looks a bit like an old-fashioned glass bottle, even though it’s actually plastic.


We mixed our ooey-gooey chocolate/marshmallow goodness into Golden Grahams cereal, sprinkled in a few extra marshmallows, and spread it in a pan so it could chill in the refrigerator.


Later, we cut the s’mores into squares, and Kathryn wrapped them individually. It was rather torturous to not be able to EAT all this goodness, but a few bits did “accidentally” fall off {wink, wink}, so we sampled those.


Want to make ’em for yourself?

8 cups Golden Grahams cereal (13oz box)
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 cups mini marshmallows (10oz bag)
5 Tbsp butter/margarine
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup light corn syrup (optional)

Melt 5 cups marshmallows (save one cup for later), chocolate chips, butter, and corn syrup in saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Butter 13x9x2-inch pan.

Pour cereal into large bowl. Pour marshmallow mixture over cereal; stir until evenly coated. Stir in remaining one cup marshmallows.

Press mixture into buttered pan with back of spoon. Cool at least one our or until firm. Cut into 24 bars. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

Wow! Those sound good. I may have to add them to my treat list this season (despite the fact that I’d decided to keep it to a minimum this year — the list keeps growing!), along with the cranberry bark and buckeye squares I found yesterday…

Ooooh, those sound GREAT. We’ll definitely need to try them.


Thank you for the recipe – those sound really good! I need to figure out what my daughter and I are going to make for Christmas cookies this year.
