Peanut Butter S'mores

Words do not describe how wonderful these little treats are! I think the idea stemmed from my obsession with everything peanut butter and how to add it to a s'more. We have been able to get the technique down perfect for the perfect amount of melt, and gooeyness (is that even a word?) for it to be HEAVENLY!

Wanna know how to make them? Good so I will tell you! Here is what you will need. Some the ingredients will be used for another treat so just hold off on that.

All you are really going to need is marshmallows, graham crackers, and a peanut butter cup. You will want to get everything you need on a plate before you start roasting it. I promise this makes a difference with the final result! It isn't as good if you have to unwrap the peanut butter cup after you roast the marshmallow.

Step 1 - Put your marshmallow on the roasting stick. We suggest you use a small stick with the prongs close together. There is a reason for this that you will see in a later step.

Step 2- Roast your marshmallow. I happen to like them a little toasty. This picture shows it on fire. That was more of an oops than anything else, but oh well. It was still good!

Step 3- After your marshmallow is toasted. Take it off the stick and place it on top of the peanut butter cup. Now this is where the smaller roasting stick comes in handy! In order to get the peanut butter melted enough to be a little gooey you will want to stick that in the fire too. So take the marshmallow and the peanut butter cup an balance it on top of the roasting stick. You will put it back in the fire for just a second! Too long and it will melt off the stick. And that would be a disaster!

Step 4- While using part of the graham cracker scrape it all of the stick and onto the graham cracker. See why you need a plate?

Then you have it! The soul reason I can't loose as much weight as I would like. Everyone needs to try this at least once! THEY ARE THAT GOOD! I guess the only exception is if you like peanut butter, but stay tuned. I have a few more things we roast that might tickle your non-peanut butter fancy!
