Know what’s good? Peanut butter cup S’mores.

a melty smore

S’mores made with peanut butter cups instead of the usual chocolate are pretty darn great. I forget where I first learned about this, I think it was a mention over on Pinterest.

Wanna hear the best thing I’ve learned in a while? Set the chocolate near the fire to melt while you’re cooking your marshmallow to the the perfect puffy and golden brown state. That way the chocolate is nice and melty and the marshmallow has to do less work. This tip comes from Kyle, who is my new hero.

    OR try S’mooshies…a S’more with chocolate chip cookies instead of graham crackers. Yum!!!

    Beware the torrent of rushing melted chocolate when you go to take the first bite – your belly will get covered in it!
    Hold the s’more away from yourself to avoid the chocolate stains (or better yet, hold you hand under it to catch the melted choc. and slurp it up).

    I came in here to suggest the same thing as Dana – we love s’mores with homemade chocolate chip cookies instead of chocolate and graham crackers. They have the added benefit of dropping less crumbs all over you!

  • 4 Elsa // Jun 1, 2011 at 6:33 am

    Oh, YES. I can get behind this.

  • 5 sara // Jun 1, 2011 at 6:50 am

    LOVE THIS! What a great idea! I definitely need to try this!

  • 6 Jené // Jun 1, 2011 at 7:46 am

    Those look amazing

  • 7 Julie // Jun 1, 2011 at 8:12 am

    *drool* Oh my gosh. We just had smores the other night – why couldn’t I have heard about this before then?! Yum. :)

  • 8 Andrea // Jun 1, 2011 at 9:02 am

    Fantastic idea!

    How about a mini peppermint patty?

  • 9 Katelyn // Jun 1, 2011 at 9:11 am

    Hah! The check-out guy at Trader Joes hipped me to this last time I went, and I was drooling about it for at least 10 minutes. Genius.

  • 10 Kristin H // Jun 1, 2011 at 9:50 am

    Oh my! I’m going camping this weekend and I think I’m going to have to test this out.

  • 11 Tina // Jun 1, 2011 at 10:16 am

    Bananas instead of graham crackers!

  • 12 Megan // Jun 1, 2011 at 10:44 am

    Yummmmmm! I am so going to try this. Maybe I will pick up some of those dark chocolate almond butter cups I saw at the natural foods sections as well!

  • 13 Heidi // Jun 1, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    I tried this last summer but wasn’t impressed & now I know why. I will have to give this another shot & use your (via Kyle) tip about melting the chocolate first. I also want to try it with a Carmello square or one of the raspberry chocolates from Ghirardelli.

  • 14 Jenn Bo // Jun 1, 2011 at 1:43 pm

    Oh my! Those do look delicious.

    @Heidi: Speaking of Ghiradelli, they have some awesome milk chocolate squares with coffee flavored caramel. Making it into a Smore might be guilding the lily, but I’d be willing to go there.

    best smores ever: made with saltines.

  • 16 Alysia // Jun 1, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    That looks fantastic! I need to try this.

  • 17 The Soap Sister // Jun 1, 2011 at 4:56 pm

    YUMMM! ‘Can’t wait ’til the next bonfire -what a fabulous idea! -Thanks

  • 18 Laura // Jun 1, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    While the month of giveaways has be fantastic, I’m glad to get back to regularly scheduled programming where glorious things like reeses smores are mentioned! Can’t wait to see more of what you’ve found on the web recently!

  • 19 megan // Jun 1, 2011 at 9:04 pm

    Heidi – the pre-melt made a difference, I’m certain. Also, we tried Caramello (Scott liked, I was so-so) and would love to have a Caramello vs. Rollo taste-off!

  • 20 megan // Jun 1, 2011 at 9:04 pm

    Seth – That is genius. Evil genius.

  • 21 megan // Jun 1, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    Laura – I’m glad to be back, the giveaways were more work than I anticipated!

  • 22 Megs // Jun 1, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    We also use peanut butter in the normal s’more. Works when you don’t have PB cups handy and it’s just as tasty!

  • 23 just barrie // Jun 2, 2011 at 8:09 am

    just did this very thing last week. yom yom yom. reeses needs to think of making this part of their marketing campaign.

  • 24 Susan Gibbs // Jun 2, 2011 at 8:25 am

    You know what else it good? S’mores made with Nutella!

  • 25 Eliza // Jun 2, 2011 at 10:13 am

    I will totally be trying this when I camp this weekend!

  • 26 Alice // Jun 2, 2011 at 12:58 pm

    Oh wow! I wish I were going camping! This will definitely go into my “save for the perfect moment” idea files!

  • 27 seth // Jun 2, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    the best part of the saltine smore (dubbed “smarlows” by those i’ve converted to this method) is that i can eat more of them because they aren’t so cloying and really showcase the marshmallow. i need to make some homemade marshmallows for this. i see an upcoming weekend project….

    I’m going to combine this with the s’mores bar cookie recipe and make the best cookies that don’t require an open flame (s’mores, non-camping edition). Yum!

    You don’t need a campfire – just a microwave! Put the two cracker squares on a microwave-safe plate. Put the chocolate bar (or Reese’s cup) on top of one cracker square and the marshmallow on top of the candy. 15 seconds on high and you’re good to go! Not quite as good, but when you don’t have a campfire handy….

  • 43 megan // Oct 27, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    Diane – Thanks! I, brace yourself, don’t have a microwave.
