PB S'mores

Submitted by Mackenzie, Age 10, from Virginia Beach, Virginia.

We think Mackenzie has hit the mark with her variation on the classic s’more. In fact, after trying these tasty treats, peanut butter fans may think that the omission of peanut butter from the original s’more was simply an oversight. Speaking of peanut butter, she does have one tip: "Creamy peanut butter is easier than crunchy to spread over the marshmallow fluff."

One of the best things about this quick recipe is that you can make as few or as many s'mores as you like, and that is important if you follow Mackenzie's instructions to assemble, then "eat them all." She does recommend that you have some cold milk on hand, as the s'mores "make you very thirsty!"

Graham crackers
Marshmallow fluff
Creamy peanut butter
Chocolate chips

Break the graham crackers in half or into fourths. Spread a layer of marshmallow fluff (about 2 tsp.) onto each section of graham cracker, then spread a thin layer of creamy peanut butter (about 1 tsp.) over the marshmallow. Top each section with chocolate chips and enjoy!

Try this: We like Mackenzie's quick version of s'mores just the way they are. For a more traditional melted treat, place the assembled s'mores on a piece of aluminum foil or small baking sheet, then broil in a toaster oven until the chocolate chips just begin to melt, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve right away while still gooey!
