There’s no campfire needed for these Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed S’mores Brownies! A thick graham cracker crust base is topped with a rich, chocolate brownie batter, peanut butter cups, dark chocolate candy bar and large jet-puffed marshmallows. Decadent and delicious!
I’ll be honest, my husband’s work schedule is no fun at all. Many times we’re cancelling or rescheduling activities or trying to schedule activities around his call schedule. As we got married the first week of med school, it’s something that I’ve become used to, but it’s still not any fun to deal with. These Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed S’mores Brownies are hands down the best – and sweetest! – thing to have ever come from cancelling plans.
Late last fall, we had made plans to have a s’mores party with our friends down the street and their family. I had purchased all the ingredients – including peanut butter cups and both milk and dark chocolate – so that each person could make their own unique dessert concoction when I got the dreaded text from my husband saying that he was going to be late. So our party plans were scrapped for another day. Unfortunately, the weather turned colder and we never got around to having our get together.
But then I found the bag of s’mores ingredients in the pantry and was trying to figure out how I could use them. My mind immediately went to brownies. I absolutely adore homemade brownies and this version is absolutely out of this world!
A thick graham cracker crust acts as a base for these decadently delicious brownies that are then topped with a rich, chocolate brownie batter. Peanut butter cups and pieces of a dark chocolate candy bar are then pressed into the brownie batter before being baked. And of course, you can’t have smore’s anything without marshmallows! Large jet-puffed marshmallows are then sprinkled over the top of the brownies and broiled to toasty perfection.
Who needs a campfire when you can have these Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed S’mores Brownies any time you crave one? Even better, you get an entire pan to devour instead of one or two marshmallows toasted at a time. A definite win/win, if you ask me!
