The “Dirty Girl Scout” – Peanut Butter S’mores Bar
Carmela from Casa San Luis.
When my friends and I have potluck dinners, I always end up bringing dessert. Go figure! So while thinking of what to bring for a dinner last week, I was staring at my pantry and wondering what I could make. All I had were leftovers: a half opened Marshmallow bag, a Speculoos Cookie box and a Dark Chocolate bar just lying there in my refrigerator. Then it came to me: S’mores!
I didn’t want to bring my friends a traditional S’mores which is also best eaten warm. So I thought why not make it into a bar so it’s easy to travel with. I love Peanut Butter so I decided to just add it in.
The smooth and creamy texture of the peanut butter compliments the bitter flavor of dark chocolate. These are two ingredients in baking that complement each other really well.
My friends at that dinner came up with the name for this bar, The Dirty Girl Scout, because it’s a like a girl scout (sweet, pretty, cute) just dirtier. Go figure.
3 Tbsps Butter
2/3 Cup of Peanut Butter (Creamy or Chunky up to you)
7 cups of Mini Marshmallow
1 ½ Cup pieces of Speculoos Cookies or Graham Cookies
1 Cup Dark Chocolate morsels
1 Tsp of Salt
You can adjust the quantities if you want it with more chocolates or less cookies.
In a re-sealable bag, place the cookies inside. With a wooden spoon, smash the bag with the cookies until the desired size is achieved.
In a Non-Stick sauce pan (make sure it’s non-stick!!) place the butter and the peanut butter. Put it on a stove on low heat. Once the butter is melted add the marshmallows.
Once all the marshmallows melted take the pan off the stove. Add in the cookies and chocolate and mix it all together.
Line your 8×8 pan with foil and make sure to grease the foil. The marshmallow sticks to everything don’t forget!
Pour in your S’mores and sprinkle with sea salt.
Place the pan in the refrigerator for an hour. Then with a sharp knife cut into desire shapes and pieces.
