If you’re looking for a rich, amazingly delicious dessert, this one is for you.  I have to warn you, though, it is so not low calorie!  Good golly, I’m pretty sure I gained weight just making it!

I took these to the beach with me when I went with my family.  They were gone in two days.  TWO DAYS!  That tells you how yummy they are.

  1. I am going to try to make this a little differently.
    First I am going to use most of the items homemade (graham crackers, butter, marshmellow cream, peanut butter). Then I am going to do it in layers. Because I am not using peanut butter cups I’ll do a layer of crust, marshmellow, peanut butter, and chocolate. Any ideas for a drizzle on the top? It looks plain. I will try to report back with updates!

    • That sounds wonderful! I wonder if you could do a chocolate or peanut butter drizzle for the top. They are so incredibly rich, I don’t think they need anything more. And coming from me – that’s huge! But that sounds pretty good! Let me know.

  2. Oh my goodness, what a great treat, these will be a great hit here with our group. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and have a great week!
