One of the most popular recipes on my blog is this recipe for Homemade Reese’s Cups with marshmallow and it’s not hard to see why. Peanut butter and marshmallows go incredibly well together and when you add salty crackers and chocolate, it’s a match made in dessert Heaven.
The main problem with that recipe as I see it is that while it’s a showstopper for sure it’s a bit time consuming, and it can be messy to make (although messy recipes can be so much fun).
This recipe takes all of the elements of that one and makes it a much more weeknight friendly dessert to tackle. All you need to make it is a butter knife (or two) and a bowl to melt the chocolate!
Ingredients to make Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Cracker Sandwiches
Peanut Butter – Choosy moms choose Jif, and so do I. Creamy Jif is my favorite peanut butter of all time, but any peanut butter will do here. If natural peanut butter is your thing, that will work just fine. Same with crunchy. If you’re allergic to peanuts or just don’t like them, you could also sub in almond butter or sunflower butter in its place.
Marshmallow Fluff: marshmallow fluff is necessary here. A ‘real’ marshmallow wont smash down between the crackers the way it should, although you could take a torch to it, and make a toasted marshmallow cracker and that would be AMAZING.
Ritz Crackers: I prefer Ritz with this because they’re salty and just a little bit sweet, and the round shape is ideal for smooshing the ingredients, but again, you can use pretty much whatever cracker you like or have on hand.
Chocolate: I used semi-sweet chocolate for this recipe, but feel free to use whatever chocolate you prefer or have on hand. It’s going to be delicious no matter what.
