Scroll to the end for a sweet snack. :)
We've had little campfires before, but this spring we finally found the perfect spot for a fire ring. The recent onslaught of wind storms keeps our trees shedding dead wood all over the yard, we have plenty of fuel. We've been in heaven grilling hot dogs and s'mores, almost on a weekly basis. While around the campfire, the kids tell fantastic stories. Wyatt can do a pretty convincing pirate impersonation. :)
If you can't do s'mores, here's another snack involving chocolate and graham crackers that will knock your socks off. :)
Homemade Chocolate PB Crunch Bars
- 8 Graham crackers, broken into quarter size "planks"
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3 tbsp butter, softened
- 8 oz Chocolate candy coating (I used equal parts chopped up easter bunny -a leftover one from the freezer- and semi-sweet chocolate chips)
Line your baking sheet with wax paper. Mix the powdered sugar, peanut butter, and butter. Spread the peanut butter mixture on half of the graham rectangles and top the other half and then place them in the refrigerator while you melt the chocolate. Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl using 30 second increments until melted, stirring each time. Once the coating is melted, use a fork to dip each graham sandwich in the coating, submerging it completely. Set them back on the wax paper and place in the freezer until set. They will keep in a container in the fridge for a week, if you don't eat them all immediately.
For a less sweet snack, I did some with a drizzle, instead of dunking. (above)
