Growing up, we always made the Indoor S’mores from the back of the Golden Grahams box. There wasn’t much we loved more than crunchy cereal and warm chocolate (hello, vegan puppy chow). We stopped making them when we went vegan, though, as the original cereal and recipe are both not vegan.
Recently, though, we found a vegan graham cereal and knew we had to recreate the dessert we loved so much. And our vegan version did not disappoint.
You just need a few simple ingredients for this no-bake dessert:
light corn syrup
vegan graham cereal (we recommend this brand)
All you have to do is heat the corn syrup, vegan butter, and chocolate chips in a saucepan until melted and creamy. After removing the mixture from heat, you stir in the vanilla extract.
You then combine the chocolate mixture with the cereal and finally, mix in the mini marshmallows. You can even omit the marshmallows for a still-delicious, even simpler treat!
To serve, you press the cereal mixture into a lined baking sheet and allow it to set for at least 1 hour, then slice into bars. If you’re impatient, though (as we often are), you can just dig into the warm, chocolatey cereal with a fork or your hands, foregoing the wait time.
