As the weather gets colder and the holidays are on the way, my kids and I love to make holiday treats. I love coming up with something new and delicious for us to make and try. Post gave me a challenge with Golden Crisp®, and I couldn’t wait to try something new.
We made Chocolate Golden Crisp Gooey Bars full of gooey marshmallows and chocolate cake. Totally yummy!
Here’s how we made them.
First, make a crust with an egg, melted butter, and chocolate fudge cake mix and smush it into the bottom of the pan. Bake it for about 15 minutes.
Then, as soon as it comes out of the oven, pour on an entire bag of mini marshmallows. This is the gooey part! Pop it back in the oven for a few minutes to get all gooey.
While those marshmallows are getting all gooey, make a batch of Golden Crisp® Treats with more butter and marshmallows. Then, layer it on top of the marshmallows.
Take 1/4 cup of chocolate chips and melt them in the microwave and then drizzle on top of everything. Then, let them completely cool.
These are totally easy and your family will love them! I’m thinking these just might be the treat we leave for Santa this year.

We found Golden Crisp® at Kroger. We love to eat cereal for more than just breakfast. I hadn’t had this one in while, so I forgot how good it tastes.
