I know I said awhile back that I had found my go-to dessert for this summer. But, I’ve changed my mind! Those salted chocolate peanut butter bars are definitely still towards the top, but I’ve found a new favorite. These no bake peanut butter s’mores bars are now number one!
When it comes to all things s’mores, I just can’t say no. I’m constantly asking my husband when he’s tending the grill if the coals are just right (because I have to have perfectly toasted marshmallows!) for making s’mores. Fortunately for me, he likes them just about as much as I do so I get to enjoy them quite a bit. I’m thinking it should become an “every time we grill” tradition. It’d be great. Maybe not for our blood sugar levels, but definitely for our tastebuds!
These peanut butter s’mores bars are perfect for those days when we aren’t grilling or just about any day, actually. A simple peanut butter graham cracker crust makes up the base of these bars. Mini marshmallows are sprinkled over the top and covered with a thick layer of soft peanut butter chocolate. Crushed graham crackers and marshmallow bits finish off these super easy no bake bars. So if you’re looking for a new summer favorite, these bars are it!
