Buckeye S’mores Hacks

Below are a few hacks or replacements you can use for this recipe using what you have on hand.  If you don’t have a jar of natural smooth peanut butter and dark chocolate bars in your pantry you need to add those to your grocery list this week! (just saying…)

  • Nutella or similar hazelnut chocolate spread can be used in place of peanut butter and chocolate square for this recipe.
  • If you don’t have marshmallows during the summer or campfire season what is wrong with you?  No seriously,  marshmallows are a must for any s’more recipe but you can use a marshmallow spread.
  • Most any chocolate treat works when making s’mores.  I’ve shared a few using a healthy pistachio bar on my website.  To make a ‘buckeye candy’ theme s’more a Reese’ Peanut Butter Cup candy can be used.

For this recipe you will need:

  • Smooth peanut butter
  • dark chocolate bar
  • marshmallow
  • graham cracker

I want to note that I have seen many s’mores recipes created indoors or not using a campfire.  For the record – that IS NOT a s’ more!

Below I have created a printable version of this recipe.  If you are interested in finding more of these types of recipes they are all on my website.  Campfire cooking is a hot topic in my family so be sure to check that out for your next backyard or road trip adventure.

If you don’t have large Reese’s peanut butter cups no worries – this recipe actually works best with fresh and natural peanut butter.  I like to have the graham cracker coated with my favorite peanut butter before handing the marshmallow over to my husband.  He is the official campfire marshmallow maker in our family.  He really makes that best!!!

This recipe was inspired by my friend who always ask for me to pick up Peanut Butter Cups for S’more time.  In desperate times when I don’t have the candy, I always have peanut butter and chocolate.
