These Peanut Butter S'mores Bars are an easy treat that can be made year round. Gooey no bake bars loaded with marshmallow and chocolate always gets smiles at parties.
One of our favorite things to do as a family is sit around a campfire telling stories, looking at the stars, toasting marshmallows, and eating s'mores.
The house we are living in in Florida does not have much of a yard, and a bonfire in a screened in patio isn't the best idea. So, it has been way too long since we have roasted some marshmallows.
My kids love eating s'mores, so I am always looking for fun ways to create s'mores treats that we can eat all year long. Since these Peanut Butter S'mores Blondies were a hit, I wanted to make something with those same flavors in a no bake bar.
Now one thing that I don't miss about a bonfire is all the sticky messes that happen when my kids get around marshmallows and chocolate.
I'm not sure how it happens, but there are usually marshmallow guts on all the chairs. And don't get me started on how crazy kids can get when they are given a pointy stick and access to fire.
S'mores treats that are made without a fire gets the mom approval from me.
These no bake treats are very quick and easy to put together, and they are the perfect treat for any summer party or picnic.
You may have most of the ingredients in your cupboards or pantry. Well, hopefully you do. If not, add them to your grocery list right away because these s'mores bars are so stinking amazing!
Tips for making Peanut Butter S'mores Bars:
Chop the candy bars into small pieces. Place the chopped chocolate bars in a bowl in the freezer.
Stir together the corn syrup and sugar. Heat over medium heat until dissolved. Bring to a boil and boil 1 minute.
Pour into a bowl and stir in the peanut butter until creamy.
Add the cereal and stir until everything is coated evenly. Another way to mix these together is to pour the hot syrup over the cereal in a bowl.
Stir in the marshmallows and 1 cup of the frozen candy bar chunks quickly and gently.
Press the mixture quickly into a greased pan. Top the bars with the remaining candy bars and mini marshmallow bits immediately. If the bars cool, the extra toppings will not stick very well.

It's been ages since I did s'mores around a campfire. And I don't think I ever made them with peanut butter, which is odd since I love peanut butter so much! Totally digging these bars. What a fun, simple recipe, Jocelyn!

Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel
Peanut butter just NEEDS to be with s'mores. It helps cut the sweetness of the chocolate, and it is just SO AMAZING with the marshmallow fluff! I love that you used Golden Grahams too - such an underrated cereal for sure! Pinned!! 😀

Yes! I can't wait to sit around the campfire and make s'mores. That is one of my favorite things about summer. But in the meantime, I need to try these s'mores bars. The addition of the peanut butter is perfect!
It's one of our favorite summer activities too! But thank goodness for easy to make s'mores bars during these crazy cold months!
Jessica @ Sweet Menu
Peanut butter + smores = heaven! These bars look magical!
Thank you Jessica!!!
I love that you used Golden Grahams and PB in these bars! Smores are always a favorite around my house...yummy treat!!
Thanks Jenny! Anything s'mores gets devoured in record time here!!!
Cyndi @ My Kitchen Craze
I love camp fires and s'mores too. They are my fav! How funny that I made S'mores bars yesterday too that are going up on the blog later. I didn't add pb though. Genius idea! Pinned!!
Great food bloggers think alike 🙂 I can't wait to see what you made!
Sticks and kids is a bad combo. But peanut butter and s'mores is the best! I love these!
Yes!!! Who ever invented toasting marshmallows on pointy sticks just wasn't thinking, especially when they gave them to kids!!! I'm officially a fan of pb and s'mores that's for sure though!!!
Sandra @ A Dash of Sanity
I definitely need to make a batch of these! My kids would go absolutely crazy for them! 🙂 Pinning, Stumbling, and Yumming!
Do it!!! Your kids will love these bars for sure!! Thanks for all the share love 🙂 You are awesome!
Emily @ Life on Food
I always forget about Golden Grahams. So good! I need some. And then I need to make these bars.
adding peanut butter to a s'more is a must! and these look like the perfect no-fire-needed s'more treat for any time of year
Gotta love an easy no fire needed treat, right? Kids, sticks, and fire just don't go together very well.
Anna @ Crunchy Creamy Sweet
Golden Grahams are my favorite!! These bars look fantastic! It would be hard to share them!
I kept eating a tiny square every time I went in the kitchen, so I totally understand the not wanting to share! They were too good!!!
Carrie @ Bakeaholic Mama
LOVE the looks of these. They look amazing, and my kids would certainly approve!
Thanks Carrie!!! My kids devoured these! I'm sure your kiddos would too!!!
Sarah @ The Gold Lining Girl
I love all things s'mores, and I realllly love peanut butter! These are right up my alley! I love slathering a little PB on the graham cracker when I make a regular s'more! PB on graham crackers is one of my favorite snacks anyway! It only made sense to take it a step further and make it a s'more. Haha! These bars look so simple to make too. Thanks for sharing, Jocelyn!
I will definitely have to try the pb on a regular s'more this summer...that sounds perfect!!!
Aimee @ ShugarySweets
These look awesome, love how gooey they are!!! 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Erin @ Miss Scrambled Egg
Peanut butter and graham cracker make for one happy girl! We had this event at college called Midnight Breakfast. Basically, all of the students would go to the dining hall at 12 AM during finals week and stuff their faces with eggs, pancakes, and french toast. I always went straight for the Golden Grahams. Friends would question my choices, "You stayed up for Golden Grahams." My answer, "Yes, I certainly did." Reliving my college days as well as anticipating summer...count me in!
I would totally go for the big bowl of Golden Grahams too!!! 😉
Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice
I love the looks of these bars, Jocelyn! Totally makes me forget that it's in the single digits outside. This also takes me back to my childhood of roasting marshmallows. Looks delicious!
Taylor @ Food Faith Fitness
Yes! Whenever we make s'more, I actually always add peanut butter on the graham cracker. You can't take me away from peanut butter and chocolateing all the things.
So these bars? Gimme s'more!
Had to. Pinned!
Any chance I get to add s'more chocolate and peanut butter, you know I will 😉 Ha! Thanks for sharing girlie!!!
Averie @ Averie Cooks
I've made bars before years ago with Golden Grahams but it's been years. And I love G.G.'s! And with the PB you used. And the marshmallows...omg heavenly! Pinned 🙂
I just love those Golden Grahams so much, so I'm always trying to work them into something! Thank you so much for the pin love 🙂 You are the best!
