Peanut Butter Smore's Bars

Summer is coming up. And if you've been reading this for a while, you know I love the smores combo. We've got smore's cookie bars, smores brownies, smore's pie, smore's marshmallows, smore's ice cream bars and smore's for kids. And the list continues to grow. Or you could add some nuts and do a rocky road version if that's your thing. These are a little different than the typical smores due to the addition of peanut butter and like most chocolate desserts, I found these very hard to resist. 

Peanut Butter Smore's Bars

For Graham Cracker Crust:
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter, melted

For Peanut Butter Chocolate Marshmallow Filling:
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (lite is all right)
1 cup chocolate chips
250 grams mini marshmallows

Line a 8 x 8″ square baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.
In a bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and salt together.
Add the melted butter and stir until the graham cracker crumbs are thoroughly moistened. Press evenly into the prepared baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
In a medium-sized pot, melt the margarine and peanut butter together.
Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate chips. Stir until they’ve completely melted into the peanut butter mixture. Allow the mixture to cool to the point where you can comfortably place your hand on the bottom of the pot .
Add marshmallows and stir to coat.
Spread evenly over the graham cracker crust and put the whole thing in the fridge until fully set. Lift out of the dish using the parchment paper, cut into squares. It’s best to keep these refrigerated.
yield: 16 squares
