No Bake Peanut Butter S’mores Bars

PB S'mores Bars

What a great day with my husband yesterday.  We went to Denver, walked around a few different shopping areas.  Two of them were outside, and it was really hot.  We walked by Sur Le Table, but it was closed!  A Wednesday afternoon at 3:00, and they had their doors locked.  Not a happy girl!  We had dinner at a wonderful steak place, and then went to see a show.  My husband is not a fan of musicals, or plays, but I enjoy them.  Jersey Boys was in town, so that is what we saw.  It was wonderful.  The 4 Seasons were way before my time, but I know a lot of their songs from my dad playing them when I was growing up.  The story was very interesting, and they did a fantastic job with the music.  If you get a chance, I highly recommend it.  Even my husband walked away relatively pleased with the performance (and that says a lot)!

PB S'mores Bars

I made these bars a few weeks ago.  My husband was going to help a friend move, so I sent along some fuel.  I figured a bunch of guys lifting heavy boxes and couches needed something to keep them going.  Boy was I right!  My husband brought the container home empty, so I am pretty sure everyone appreciated them.

Everyone knows that peanut butter and chocolate is a winning combination.  And anything with S’mores is good too.  So, why not put peanut butter in with the S’mores?  Seems like the next natural progression.  Lucky for you they don’t involve a campfire or an even an oven.   Perfect treat to make on one of those hot days when you don’t want to heat up the house.  Which pretty much means any day of the week around here!

PB S'mores Bars

These are very similar to the Peanut Butter Bars I made awhile ago.  Kind of like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup combined with a S’more.  Trust me, they are addicting.  They are best kept in the fridge.  If I have enough willpower I like to let it sit for about 5 minutes at room temperature before I eat it.  But, that doesn’t always happen :)

For the top:
  • ½ bag (about 1 cup) chocolate chips

Instructions
  1. In a food processor, pulse the graham crackers until they are in crumbs. (You can really use whatever method to make crumbs that you want). In a bowl, combine the 3Tbls of butter and 6 Tbls of peanut butter. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir, continue to heat until completely melted, and combined. In a large bowl combine the peanut butter mixture, graham crackers and powdered sugar. Stir until everything is mixed together. Press into an 8x8 pan.
  2. To make the filling melt together ⅓ cup peanut butter and 2 Tbls of butter. Stir in the 2 Tbls of powdered sugar. Mix until smooth. Pour over the graham cracker crust, spreading to cover the entire crust. Gently press the marshmallows into the peanut butter layer.
  3. To make the topping melt together the chocolate chips and 1 Tbls of butter until it’s smooth. Pour over the marshmallows, and spread it out to cover as many marshmallows as possible.
  4. Put in the fridge to harden for 30 minutes. Cut into squares, and then store covered in the fridge.

  1. I love these Erin! And what’s better is I have all of the ingredients! YUM!!!

  2. Sur La Table closed midweek?! What a travesty!

    As for these bars, I’m liking the PB addition with the class S’mores components!

  3. They look wonderful

  4. These look amazing Erin–perfect for summer since they are no-bake!

  5. I loved the Jersey Boys. I saw them about 4 years ago in San Francisco. Sorry Sur La Table is closed, that stinks, but it probably saved you a few bucks! Glad you enjoyed your well deserved evening.

    Now lets talk about these Bars, oh my gosh! Drool worthy! They look amazing! I am going to bookmark these and make them for my Husband!

  6. No Bake? How perfect for summer. They look delicious!

  7. Gotta love the PB in the s’more!! Great flavors for sure. So glad you had a fabulous day with your hubby!

  8. Just the graham cracker portion sounds amazing! Jersey Boys is NYC is impossible to get tickets for…you have to book super far in advance.

  9. Love these! I have so many new s’mores recipes that I want to try. . .I better get started!

  10. I plan of going to Sur Le Table tomorrow, sometimes I feel lucky we don’t have one close to the house and I only shop only when traveling.
    these bars sound amazingly good!

  11. Those. Look. AMAZING. I could eat a whole pan, I bet.

  12. There’s nothing about these that I don’t like…I want to make a batch now!

  13. Oh, my. These look positively scrumptious! Love that they are no bake in this hot weather, too.

  14. So did you find out why Sur La Table was closed on a Wednesday afternoon? Hehe. Never been to Denver but I heard it’s nice there. Isn’t baking a little bit different in Denver because of the altitude? Anyway, I want to have S’mores, please! Finger-lickin’ good!

    • Never figured out why. I just had to go to Crate & Barrel next door instead. Yes baking is different up here. We are up about 5000 feet, so stuff rises differently, and boils differently. It takes some getting used to that is for sure!

  15. I need one of these right now- yum!

  16. I can’t believe Sur La Table was closed, how disappointing! Your no bake PB S’mores look good and sound very fun to make- I will have to try these for the grandchildren, thanks for sharing;-)

  17. Mmmm….delicious!! I love that they are no bake! :)

  18. Can’t believe that Sur Le Table was closed? What is up with that? These bars look simply divine – pinning now to make later! Enjoy your weekend!

  19. I really like the no-bake part of these beautiful bars. I’m not surprised these were gobbled up. :)

  20. These look fabulous! All of my favorite ingredients in one bar! And I love Jersey Boys also!

  21. Im a sucker for peanut butter and these look oh so good! on my list to make
