The only thing we want to do during fall is sit by an open fire and roast marshmallows for s’mores, but unfortunately that’s just not practical for most of us. But just because you can’t quit your job and become a professional s’mores maker doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the goodness of melty marshmallow, crunchy graham cracker and warm chocolate.
In fact, this peanut butter s’mores cookie recipe allows you to enjoy those aspects of your favorite dessert and more, all without the need for an open flame. So, consider this your new go-to recipe when you’re craving some s’mores this season.
This recipe from Like Mother Like Daughter offers everything we love about s’mores — graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows — plus the addition of peanut butter. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s served up in cookie form.
To create the cookie base, you’ll blend brown sugar, peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs and other ingredients to yield the perfect bottom layer. From there, place and melt a marshmallow on top of the cookie, and while the marshmallow is still warm, press a Hershey’s kiss on top.
With a recipe like this on hand, you’ll almost forget that traditional s’mores exist.
