Peanut Butter S'mores Bars

Pin It



Everybody love s'mores, right? But we can all agree they're a big mess. I kind of hate getting messy. And sticky. Ew.  So I found a way to make these yummy treats less messy...and more delicious.




Enter into the equation our dear friend peanut butter. This guy makes everything better and these bars are no exception! So as summer is drawing to a close and you start getting invited to bonfires - bring these bad boys to share. You will instantly be best friends with everyone there ;)


Instead of graham crackers I used Golden Grahams cereal. It's perfect.
Part of the chocolate chips get stirred into the mix while the marshmallow goodness is still hot, so they juuuuust start to melt.
The generous scoop of peanut butter adds a creaminess that helps keep these bars gooey. Drool.
Have I convinced you yet? Go make these!



Peanut Butter S'mores Bars
by: Back For Seconds

  • 3 Tbs butter
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 6 cups marshmallows
  • 6 cups Golden Grahams cereal
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
In a large pot melt the butter and peanut butter over medium heat. Stir in marshmallows and continue stirring until melted. Remove from heat and gently combine with cereal and 1 1/2 cups of the chocolate chips. Press gently into a greased 9x13" pan and sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips. When cool, cover and store at room temperature.

Oh wow. You took golden grahams up a notch. Peanut butter? To. Die. For. And I'm all about the no mess. Outdoors? What's that?

Golden Grahams... one of my favorite cereals and now, one of my favorite stars in s'mores bars! I LOVE pairing pb with s'mores... it cuts back some of the chocolate (sadly, I'm crazed and think there *can* be such a thing as too much chocolate) plus hello, fluffernutters?! Amazeballs. These look awesome and gooey without being too sticky... love!

Heather @ InHerChucks said...
