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.

 

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie in clear cups with white and gray striped straws on a white background

I would say something like “Enjoy the taste of childhood PB&J with this Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie,” but that would imply that adults don’t eat PB&J sandwiches. That is not true at all for this adult. If you love Peanut Butter & Jelly just as much as me, then you will like this smoothie.

Rome wasn’t built in a day. All good things come to those who wait. There are probably some other expressions about time and working hard that aren’t coming to me right now.

They use JUSTIN’S® Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Butter and when served warm are a delicious snack for friends and family.
