S'more Log

​Campfire s'mores and chocolate breakfast cereal? Two of childhood's favorite treats rolled into one delicious and easy recipe.

S'more Log
by Kate J.

5 cups Chocolate Cheerios
1 10-ounce bag mini marshmallows
3 Tablespoons butter
1 7-ounce jar marshmallow fluff
1 cup mini chocolate chips, preferably mini​

Jelly roll/baking sheet, parchment paper, knife, cutting board

Dump the cereal into a large bowl and set aside. Line a baking sheet with greased parchment paper and set aside.
In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat and then add the marshmallows, stirring constantly, but gently, to combine into a smooth, voluminous liquid. Remove from heat and allow to cool just slightly.
Working in batches, dump the thick liquid over the cereal, using gloved hands to mix the cereal in. Try not to break the Cheerios! Continue until all the butter/marshmallow is used and the mixture is consistent.
Pour the cereal mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, pressing gently with gloved hands until the cereal creates a very thin sheet, less than a centimeter thick. Again, try not to break the Cheerios. Set aside and let set up for at least 20 minutes but not until completely firm.
Using the parchment paper, remove the cereal sheet from the baking sheet and onto a counter top. Spread the entire jar of marshmallow fluff over the sheet, sprinkle with chocolate chips. Starting at one short edge, begin to roll the sheet and its goodies into a log, using the parchment paper to keep everything to together.
Once the log is complete, wrap it in parchment paper and secure with several rubber bands. Now allow the treat to set up completely, either at room temperature or in the fridge. (A cold log will be easier to slice.)
When ready to serve, use a sharp knife and a cutting board to slice the log into circles. Enjoy!
