Peanut Butter S’mores Bars



• 1/2 cup butter, melted

• 2 cups graham cracker crumbs

• 2 cups powdered sugar

• 1¼ cups peanut butter

• 8-12 ounces marshmallow fluff

• 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

• 2-3 cups mini peanut butter cups, coarsely chopped



• Mix butter, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and peanut butter together until completely combined.

• Press into the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish.

• Spread a layer marshmallow fluff over the graham cracker crust. It’s a little tricky but it will spread.

• Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second increments stirring in between until melted. Pour over fluff layer and spread gently.

• Sprinkle peanut butter cups on top and press down gently.

• Refrigerate bars until set for 30-60 minutes.

• Cut into bars and serve. Store bars in the fridge. They will soften at room temperature.
