NomNom:PB&J S'mores

When I was younger, I would consume a lot of PB&J sandwiches. I'd add some banana slices in between the bread and wash it down with a cold glass of milk and that was pretty much my idea of the perfect sandwich as a kid. Now that I'm older and much more uhhh fancier....I still eat it the same way. Same goes for s'mores. Eating them now is such a throwback to happy childhood memories by the campfire.

So this super simple recipe is literally a hybrid between a PB&J and a S'more. It's so easy to make that I'm not sure if I would call it a recipe but more like an assembly. You spread peanut butter and jelly on one side of a graham cracker and the other cracker half gets a generous spread of hazelnut chocolate and marshmallow creme and then they kiss.

This is one of those type of desserts/snacks that will appeal to both kids and adults and well, visually it looks fun to eat. I mean, who doesn't love fun? Add sprinkles or chocolate chips if you're feeling a little extra that day.

Enjoy your weekend. Xo.
