If you’ve never replaced the chocolate in a s’more with a Reese’s peanut butter cup, you’re totally missing out! S’mores are a perfect summer treat, especially for the kids, and these PB S’mores are a fun way to experiment with pantry staples.
The grocery list.
- Marshmallows – There are a million different brands of marshmallows out there for you to choose from, and they all pretty much taste the same! I chose to use these vegan marshmallows for this recipe.
- Graham crackers – Graham crackers are a different story than the marshmallows; I think it makes a difference which brand you use for your s’mores. Personally, I think plain honey graham crackers are the best vessel for your toasted marshmallow and melty chocolate. I usually avoid flavored crackers like cinnamon, but if you’d prefer to use something other than plain graham crackers, there’s nothing stopping you.
- Chocolate – If you want to adultify the classic s’more, using your favorite quality chocolate bar will do so. This time, I opted for the classic Hershey’s bar.
- Fix & Fogg Coffee Maple Peanut Butter – This ingredient is what elevates these beyond regular old s’mores. The Fix & Fogg Coffee Maple Peanut butter is gourmet and absolutely next level. I used the Coffee Maple PB to bump up the flavor of the s’mores and turn this classic summer treat into a decadent sweet!
I like to start every s’more by laying out my graham cracker halves with the peanut butter and chocolate already on them so I can sandwich the hot marshmallow right away when it’s done. This will give you nice soft melty chocolate. It also makes it easier for kids so they’re not trying to assemble their s’more while holding a piping hot and sticky marshmallow in one hand.
Lay out 6 graham crackers and place a piece of chocolate on top of each one. On the remaining 6 graham crackers, smear the peanut butter. I like to use a generous amount.
On a skewer or a long marshmallow roasting stick, place 1-2 marshmallows on the end. Roast until puffed and lightly charred (depending on your marshmallow preference) over an open flame. You can cook your marshmallows over a campfire or a stove, either will work! Turn your skewer constantly to evenly roast the marshmallow.
Once the marshmallows have roasted, place them on top of the graham cracker with the chocolate. Use the graham cracker with the peanut butter to sandwich the marshmallow and carefully slide out the skewer. Eat up and enjoy!

S’mores are such a fun and classic summer treat and you can make them your own by experimenting with different ingredients. Use different types of chocolate, spread Nutella on one graham cracker, replace the graham crackers with cookies…the possibilities are endless!!
