I just ran across this recipe in a children's cookbook, and thought I would post it. This would be so simple to make and serve for children's parties, as well as US adults! This is a simple recipe, and can be made even easier if you buy ready to bake peanut butter cookies found in the dairy section..or mix as the recipe shows us, make them homemade. Kids would love this little twist on a S'more!

How to Make Peanut Butter S'mores #1

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl; set aside. Beat butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl and beat with hand mixer until light and fluffy at medium speed. Beat in peanut butter, egg and vanilla until well blended. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until blended. Stir in peanuts, if desired.
  2. Roll dough into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten with tines of fork, forming a criss-cross pattern. Bake about 14 minutes or until set and edges are light golden brown. Cool cookies 2 minutes on cookie sheets; transfer to wire cooling racks. Cool completely.
  3. To assemble sandwiches, break each candy bar into four sections. Place 1 section of chocolate on flat side of 1 cookie. Place on a microwavable plate; top with 1 marshmallow. Microwave at HIGH 10-12 seconds or until marshmallow is puffy. Immediately top with another cookie, flat side down. Press slightly on top cookie, spreading marshmallow to edges. Repeat with remaining cookies one at a time. Cool completely.
