Whip up a batch today and impress all of your holiday guests or bring home the holiday flavor to any time of year.

Peanut Butter Banana S'mores Bars stacked on top of each other with chocolate chips on a white top with a blue background

You didn’t think I’d give you a s’mores recipe without putting my own spin on it did you? This is a classic with a sweet twist. This recipe uses JUSTIN’S® Mini Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups in place of the milk-chocolate bar, and real cookie dough instead of crackers. How delicious does that sound? I should warn you though, these can get messy and are addicting. But mostly just addicting.
