With back to school looming, we’re trying to squeeze in as much fun and excitement to our days as we can. One thing we’re doing is getting outside to enjoy the beautiful weather and all of the great activities that Cape Cod has to offer. We’re able to do this by spending less time in the kitchen and spending less money by using online coupons.

Nothing says summer like a bonfire and S’mores. But, who likes the campfire smell lingering in their hair afterwards? I decided to whip up some homemade Peanut Butter and add that to an easy recipe for S’mores bars. You’ll wish you were my neighbor because there are a few left. Just a few.

Don’t be intimidated by the number of steps I’m going to share with you. You know me, I like things to come together quickly. Learning to do that takes time and I’ve practiced my fair share so that you don’t have to! To make these easy peanut butter s’mores bars, you’ll need to make a graham cracker crust, homemade peanut butter, and brownie batter. Sounds like a lot, but this recipe shouldn’t take you more than 15 minutes hands-on and baking takes about 30.

The first thing to do is melt 1/2 cup of butter (one stick) and ,using a fork, combine it with 2 cups of graham cracker crumbs. Making the crumbs is easy, just put 4 – 5 cracker sheets into a zip top plastic bag and roll over them with a rolling pin. No rolling pin? Try a glass instead!

Add this to your Parchment paper lined pan and smooth with your hands. It’s a good idea to grease your hands either with the paper from your stick of butter or a cooking spray.

Add two cups of Planters® Dry Roasted Peanuts to your food processor and five minutes later, you have the most delicious peanut butter you’ve ever tasted.

This is the second hardest part: wait for them to cool completely on the rack before devouring all of cutting them.

Once they’ve cooled completely, I’m not joking here, cut into squares and enjoy with a cold glass of milk.
