Sweet & Salty S'Mores: You've Gotta Try This Saltine S'More Recipe

I don’t really have a sweet tooth. One small bite is all it takes for me before I start craving something salty, which is why I often make this saltine cracker s’more recipe. It offers the saltiness I crave and that little bite of sweet that works magic around a campfire. 


Some people opt for a Ritz cracker for a buttery twist, but I love it simple and salty, and let the peanut butter cup to do all the buttery work. Others will swap out the peanut butter cup for a fruit and nut chocolate bar; an equally amazing combination, and one that I can never resist when it is on offer.

The trick with getting creative with your campfire s’more recipes is to balance the sweet, the savory and the buttery, for a bite that offers a hint of each one.

 

 

We set up a s’more station with a number of goodies to allow everyone to make their perfect s’more. Setting everything out on a buffet table with plenty of napkins near, but not next to the fire pit is a great way to allow everyone to enjoy the fun of a campfire s’more bar.

Our children love adding the peanut butter cup to the skewer right next to the marshmallow for a gooey bite. I prefer the mix of firm chocolate with gooey marshmallow. Try them both ways; either way is simply fabulous. Just be careful not to burn your fingers when you remove the marshmallow from the skewer, and that you have plenty of napkins on hand. This can get messy!

  • 1 Peanut butter cup
  • 1 Marshmallow
Directions

Remove from the skewer and position onto of a saltine cracker.
