Raise your hand if you have 2 kids. Raise your hand if they are already bored with Summer. This recipe is for you.

We are mere days into summer break and my kids are already tired of their toys and books. My oldest wants me to play with him nonstop beginning at 6:00am. A mom can only play a game that has no rules except those that are made on the spot and favor the person making said rules for so long. Especially when breaking those rules results in a total meltdown from the person enforcing them. Also, can we talk about why children were not made with the ability to sleep until at least 7:00am on summer vacation? Or at least on weekends?

For a fun little break in the day I had my arbitrary-rule-making, rising-at-the-crack-of-dawn children make these S’mores Cereal Treats. They loved this recipe because they each got to make a personalized dessert. I loved it because I didn’t have to turn on my oven and there were no leftovers taunting me all weekend. I cannot resist a whole pan of Rice Krispie treats calling my name; I just can’t. And let’s be honest here- we’re friends, right? I loved them because it took my kids at least 2 minutes to eat them.

Two glorious, silent minutes.

Make it for the kids.  Or make it for you and your man. Or your lady. Or keep both for yourself. I won’t judge. Waking up at 6:00am and playing all day long is brutal. I don’t know how kids do it so well.

    Love these! Normally when I do something like this, I just use golden grahams but I totally want to try with cinnamon toast crunch. I bet they were awesome!

    • Katrina Bahl — June 10th, 2013 @ 8:50 am

      Cinnamon Toast Crunch is my favorite cereal of all time. You MUST try them in these bars!!

    Good gosh, girl! Your S’mores Cereal Treat Bars are off…the…chain! They look insanely good. So innovative using the Cocoa Crispies cereal. When I was little, and Golden Grahams first came on the scene, I made my own S’mores cereal treat with melted butter and marshmallows, LOL! At the time, I only had that cereal and chocolate chips at my disposal. But, I did fantasize using Cocoa Puffs in them!

      You crack me up! Why were we not childhood friends?!

    Love that this serves two!

    • Katrina Bahl — June 10th, 2013 @ 9:32 pm

      Isn’t that the best? The only bad thing was that I totally had to sneak bites from my toddler’s serving… shh

    I take this as two for me and none for my husband. Of course you can tell I don’t have the kids…yet! I guess then I will have to share.

    • Katrina Bahl — June 10th, 2013 @ 9:33 pm

      Sharing is overrated ;)

    I’m raising both my hands since I have four kids. And both my feet, because I want some too! These look awesome.

    • Katrina Bahl — June 10th, 2013 @ 9:34 pm

      Okay you’re just going to have to make the whole pan, girl! Or make yourself 2 and eat them hidden in the closet. :)

    Smile. This makes me think back to childhood. Not only did I love smores during the summer but cinnamon toast crunch was my favorite cereal! Thank you so much for sharing! Just delicious!

    • Katrina Bahl — June 11th, 2013 @ 9:28 am

      Monet! It’s been too long- thanks for stopping by! I hope you are well.

    My kids don’t know the meaning of sleeping in. I’m lucky if they sleep until 6:30 any day!! I am so going to make these and eat them both myself! :)

    • Katrina Bahl — June 11th, 2013 @ 9:27 am

      It’s torture! And letting them stay up later doesn’t work. They just wake up at the same time…and they are crankier!

    Carla @ Carlas Confections — June 11, 2013 at 10:03 am

    Haha! Seriously though, why dont kids ever want to sleep?! (not that I really know but…) You’re so smart making this for two! I need to start cutting my recipes back like that! I am all about smores too, so Im all about these!!

    • Katrina Bahl — June 11th, 2013 @ 10:09 am

      Summer break is a cruel joke! I’m starting to scale back my desserts because I am just making SO many sweets these days.

    yum! I love the idea of making treats for two. Then your not stuck with a dozen and feel tempted to eat them all.

    • Katrina Bahl — June 12th, 2013 @ 11:55 am

      Yes- because I WILL eat them all!

    Erin @ Making Memories — June 11, 2013 at 8:24 pm

    Your treats look heavenly. I’d eat them both myself =o) 1 1/2 more days until summer break for us. I am already envisioning the same scenario… me comatose on the floor while my kids tell me I’m playing the game wrong and it’ll be 6:30 am! I just might make these for breakfast so I can keep up =o)

    • Katrina Bahl — June 12th, 2013 @ 11:54 am

      You just described my whole summer perfectly…

    I already told you this, but I want to say it again….I love these photos so much! You are rocking that new camera!

    And this recipe? I die. I would totally not share these with the kids or the husband. All for me, dude.

    • Katrina Bahl — June 12th, 2013 @ 11:55 am

      Thank you! I am in love with it. And yeah I’ve totally made this recipe a few times this month!

    Jocelyn @BruCrew Life — June 13, 2013 at 9:54 am

    I’ve got my hands raised high…my kids need something like this to keep them busy. But I’m going to need more than 2 minutes of silence. Maybe I can have them make treats for…everyone in the neighborhood. That should keep them busy for at least 10 right? Ok, I am loving the mixture of cereal in these…I love cinnamon toast crunch a little too much :-)

    • Katrina Bahl — June 13th, 2013 @ 10:08 am

      Yes 2 minutes was not nearly enough! Glad to know I am not the only cereal addict.

    • Katrina Bahl — June 13th, 2013 @ 10:12 am

      Yes 2 minutes was mot enough! I’m glad to know I’m not the only cereal addict.

    OMG I need these. I’m a s’mores addict, and that fact that these are so easy makes it dangerous for me. Thank goodness it’s a small serving size.

    • Katrina Bahl — June 16th, 2013 @ 12:18 pm

      Thanks Rachel!

    Love, Love LOVE!! I made something similar to this when I had my girlscout troop. MUCH easier than the whole making smores thing, that and the school didn’t allow campfires. Oh well. These treats remain a favorite!!

    • Katrina Bahl — June 16th, 2013 @ 12:20 pm

      Rice Krispies are a favorite treat for sure! Thanks Kim

    Oh man, I love smores! These treats look so amazing, my husband would love this :)

    • Katrina Bahl — June 18th, 2013 @ 1:00 pm

      My husband hates watermelon so the kids and I got to munch on these all by ourselves.

    YES!!! My kids are bored already! Can’t believe it! I think I need to have my kids try this, they’d love it! I may have them make treats for the whole neighborhood so I can have several minutes of silence!

    • Katrina Bahl — June 20th, 2013 @ 7:02 pm

      Several minutes of silence?! That would be awesome. **sigh**
