What’s better than a warm, chewy cookie right out of the oven? A gooey one made even ooey-gooey-er with added marshmallows. The perfect stay-at-home version of s’mores—for those that go camping in their bedrooms for months at a time rather than in the wilderness.

The only thing better than marshmallows is marshmallows on-the-go. This tasty treat is quick, clean and easy. Make it for Halloween treats or with kids while babysitting. It’s basically the culinary version of bedazzling.

Cereal bars require simple ingredients every college student needs to get by: cereal, marshmallows and sprinkles. Looking for more flavor? Add the butterscotch topping. After all, marshmallows are a main food group, right?

Marshmallows and Oreos make a deadly combination. The fact that you don’t even have to lift a finger with the oven just makes these Oreo bars a triple threat.

Name any sweets you like, and you can probably toss it in this bar. M&Ms, Oreos, Rice Krispies and chocolate chips are all cemented together by melted marshmallow cream. Warning: Once you start eating one, you won’t be able to stop. Munch at your own risk.

Heat up marshmallows, and you’ll get a deliciously melty spread. Heat up marshmallows with cereal and chocolate, and you’ve got yourself crunchy s’mores bars to share (or keep to yourself). Why hike into a forest for a short-lived s’more when you can create your own fire at home and have extras for later?

8. Alternative Recipes for Peeps

Peeps are marshmallows too, and if you find yourself with a bunch of leftovers (because who eats more than one at a time), fret not. Here are some great alternative uses for them (you know, other than seeing how many can fit in your mouth at once). You could even use them for any of the other aforementioned recipes.
