Have you ever noticed how the “S’mores” flavor is so versatile? It goes well with bars, ice cream, cookies, hot chocolate, etc. Oh, and mochas. . .my favorite local coffee shop makes an amazing dark chocolate mocha that is based off of s’mores. I happen to like s’mores a lot. So, it seems quite logical to me to make candy out of the s’mores components! That and I somehow don’t have any s’more related recipes on this blog?!
I obviously couldn’t let this blog continue on without any s’mores recipes! I knew right away that I wanted to add peanut butter. (That shouldn’t come as a surprise to you!) After melting some chocolate, stirring some peanut butter, crushing some graham crackers, and sprinkling some marshmallow bits, I had a super easy bark recipe that only requires 5 ingredients and about 5 minutes of prep! So easy that you just have to try it!
A few notes: Instead of using white chocolate to mix with the peanut butter, I used vanilla candy coating because I wanted to keep the peanut butter as a strong flavor. If you love white chocolate, it would make a great substitute. Also, make sure to store the candy in an airtight container so that the graham cracker pieces don’t get a stale taste to them.
