S’mores Please

autumn-mott-98514Fall brings some s’mores into our lives. Even when it’s getting chilly, we can huddle around a fire at anytime and make some s’mores!

November is National Peanut Butter Lover’s Month so let’s celebrate with it right by closing off the month with this easy and delicious recipe and more!

There are a couple of different recipes that we like to mix in with the classic s’mores.

There will be a couple different ingredients to pick up but the basics to have on hand are of course:

Your Favorite Chocolate
Graham Crackers
Marshmallows

HACK ONE:
Of course hack number 1 is PEANUT BUTTER!

You can take care of this a couple different ways. The first way would be to just spread a generous amount of peanut butter onto one of your graham crackers prior to assembly.

The second is to cash in on a two-for-one and just pick up peanut butter cups to replace your regular chocolate. YUM!

Both are easy as can be so i guess the real question is, crunchy or smooth?

HACK TWO:

Hack number 2 is mini waffles!

You can pick these up at any grocery store. Replace your graham crackers with mini waffles and watch how much fun eating a s’more can really be.

You can toast these bad boys over the fire along with your marshmallows, or you can make it an at home bonfire in the kitchen!

This is a great recipe for little ones because they have something mini sized and delicious

I guarantee this s’more hack will be the talk on the bonfire.

HACK THREE:

Hack 3, PRETZELS!

Yes! Another graham cracker substitute for when you’re ready to shake it up! Pretzels are the perfect addition to any chocolate included recipe. Stick your marshmallow and chocolate in between two pretzels.

Salty, sweet, perfection!

HACK FOUR:

Four! Caramel!

Believe it or not there are people out there who do not enjoy chocolate, or even worse, they’re allergic!  Do not think we don’t have a hack for you!

The sticky, sweet, ooey, gooey, goodness that is caramel. This switch up will have even the most die hard chocolate lovers reaching for the caramel bottle.

Remember: If you’re unable to make s’mores around a bonfire outside because it’s too cold, you can always do it at home in a microwave. Just be careful not to burn yourself and don’t put the graham crackers in the microwave for too long. You just need enough to melt the chocolate. 

Please comment below with any of your favorite s’mores hacks! I can’t wait to try them out!
