The title says it all! The recipe calls for peanuts but for those with allergies there is a nut-free variation. Recipe from Bonnie Stern.
- 1 lb milk chocolate, chopped (or semi-sweet if you prefer, chocolate chips work too)
- 2 cups miniature marshmallows
- 2 cups Rice Krispies
- 1 cup graham wafers, broken into small pieces
- 1 cup toasted peanuts
- 1⁄2 cup raisins (I use cranberries) or 1⁄2 cup dried cherries (I use cranberries) or 1⁄2 cup dried cranberries (I use cranberries)
- 1 ounce chocolate, melted (white or dark to contrast in colour)
- Measure and mix the dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
- Chop up the milk chocolate if using bars and heat in a large bowl over a pot of simmering water to melt, stirring.
- Let cool a few minutes and then stir in the dry ingredients.
- Spoon about 2 Tbsp at a time onto a waxed paper lined baking sheet. Drizzle the melted contrasting chocolate over.
- Refrigerate until firm, and then store in the fridge or freeze.
- Nut free version: omit the peanuts and increase the graham wafers by a half cup, and either the rice krispies or cranberries by a half cup.
These are yummy!!! I had to adjust a little to ingredients on hand! I used 2 - 3oz. hersey bars from Valentines day and added about 1 cup of chocolate chips to that to melt for chocolate! I also only used graham crackers and rice krispies! I just didn't want to add in the peanuts or dried fruit. I wanted to keep them as close to s'mores as possible. I had trouble dropping them by spoonfuls so I just put in a 11x7 casserole dish like I would normal rice krispies and then put in fridge to harden. I can then cut a yummy treat when I want one. I know they will not last long! Super easy and quick to make!! Thanks!
Wow. This was so good. So good, in fact that I can't make them again :lol: unless I'm giving them away or my kids eat them all b4 I get them! I could keep eating them. I used Giardelli's bittersweet and left out the raisins. My 8 yo and 4 yo both helped. Didn't drizzle the contrasting choc. though. Yum!
These cookies were great! I made them twice in the last two days!!! I made the peanut free version and the normal version and they turned out great however both times I left out the dried fruit. I found it really hard to drop this with 2 tbsp so I would recommend either using a cookie scooper or I also ended up putting this in a 8x8 inch pan which also worked really well. All I can say is thanks for the recipe as this will help the craving of smores in the winter time!
