Peanut Butter S'mores Bars

I don't understand the phrase "nothing tastes better than skinny feels"? Really? The only thing I can think of that skinny could possibly feel like is hungry. And when I'm hungry, it makes me cranky. So really, skinny feels like being cranky. In my opinion, pizza and chocolate taste a million times better than feeling cranky feels.

I just want to be clear, I'm not advocating overeating. I know I'm feeling my best when I'm eating healthy and exercising on a frequent basis. But the occasional piece of cake or that night you ate that entire medium pizza (Not piece of pizza, the entire pizza... Not saying I've done that or anything...) just keeps you sane.

This really is a pep talk before I share with you this next recipe. It tastes amazing, and is not healthy. Just being honest. I can spin it all you want and talk about the protein in the peanut butter, or the health benefits of chocolate, but I just want to be real...

Seriously though, the calories are worth it.

Peanut Butter S'mores Bars
From Little Kitchen, Big Bites

1 cup butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/4 cups peanut butter
1 can marshmallow fluff
1 bag chocolate chips
1 bag mini peanut butter cups
1 9 x 13 baking pan

Melt the butter in the microwave. Mix the melted butter with the graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and peanut butter. Press this mixture in the bottom of your backing pan to make the crust.

Spread the marshmallow fluff on the crust. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave and pour on top of the marshmallow fluff.

Chop up the mini peanut butter cups.

Top the S'mores Bars with the peanut butter cups, and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Before serving, cut into bars.
