PB S’mores Recipe

The weekend is almost here.  Are you ready to try a Peanut Butter S’more? Also known as, the ‘PB S’mores’ S’more. 
While we prepare to get ready to hit the campground, we don’t want to miss out on packing our favorite campfire dessert ingredients. S’mores give us a very sweet reminder of what family, fun, and being outdoors is all about.

It’s essential to keep all of the sweet-tooth campers happy! Many of us love the classic taste of the traditional s’more with chocolate, marshmallow, and graham crackers. We wanted to give the classic a twist and add a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup to melt on the S’more stack. We’ve got a Peanut Butter S’more recipe to take camping with you! Bring the kids, bring your friends, build some s’mores and make summer memories with this recipe from our campfire to yours!
