Reese's Peanut Butter S'mores (Microwave Version)

 My kids love everything about s'mores.... the marshmallows, the graham cracker and the of course the chocolate.  I think s'mores are pretty tasty too... but the traditional way of heating them over an open flame (campfire) is not always convenient.  I never thought about using the microwave to make s'mores until I saw it on a you-tube video. My kids and I had a blast putting the marshmallows in the microwave and watching them blow up and expand by 2-3x their size then get melted and gooey.   I decided to swap out the plain milk chocolate that is traditionally used in s'mores with my favorite chocolate the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.  I loved the added salty flavor the peanut butter from the Reese's gives the s'more.  The microwave version is fast, safe and easy.  Once you start this method, there will definitely be more s'mores for everyone.


 Ingredients:
package of plain graham crackers
package of large marshmallows
bag of Reese's Peanut butter cups


 Directions:
On a microwave safe plate, place graham crackers with Reese's peanut butter cup and marshmallow as shown. 

Note:  I used Easter Reese's cups in the shape of an Egg from from my after Easter Holiday candy purchases, but you can use regular Reese's cups instead.  If you use the mini cups you will have to break them up a bit beforehand because they are too thick.

Depending on your microwave, heat marshmallow and chocolate in microwave for 10-20 seconds. I did mine for 15 seconds.  The marshmallow will get really big and then soft and the chocolate should get warm enough to melt easily.  Invert them together and allow to melt for a few seconds before eating. Enjoy.

  14. There is definitely something special about campfire s'mores but lets be honest that microwave pop up is pretty special too. Even at 28 years old I hold my breath waiting to hit the stop button before it makes the biggest mess ever.

  18. I absolutely love peanut butter cup s'mores! And I secretly love making them in the microwave because it means I can sleep in my own bed...without smelling like campfire smoke. Can you tell I'm not a camping girl? :)

  22. My dentist is not your friend, but I am! :) Bring 'em on! I would roast the marshmallows over a gas burner to get them nice and burnt, then stick it in the microwave! TOO good!

  26. I love smores. Actually, I like almost anything with chocolate and peanut butter - like my chocolate fluffernutter http://feedyourfussyeater.wordpress.com/2012/04/23/college-experimentation/. That's pretty close to smores, but with bread instead of graham crackers. To see the strangest thing I've made with peanut butter and chocolate, check out http://feedyourfussyeater.wordpress.com/2012/04/21/a-strange-concoction/
