Simple Snack – Peanut Butter Marshmallow Crackers

peanut butter marshmallow cracker treats

A couple of weeks ago I remembered one of the treats I used to eat when I went for sleepovers at my girl friends house. I think it was around 7th or 8th grade and when she introduced me to these cracker-marshmallow treats I thought it was so unique, so ridiculously simple, and SO YUMMY!  I guess you could sort of call this a sweet and salty spin on the classic s’mores.

I don’t know what took me so long to make them for my own kids but ever since I did, they’ve been begging me for them almost every day. There’s only 3 little ingredients that you’re likely to have in your pantry right now. Here’s the “recipe”…

Cracker-Mallow Snack Treats

  • Ritz crackers – 2 per treat
  • Classic size marshmallows
  • Peanut Butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread peanut butter on one cracker, top with marshmallow, and place on a baking sheet.

Bake for about 4 minutes.

Remove from oven and press top cracker down slightly to adhere it to the hot marshmallow.

Let cool slightly {if you can} so it doesn’t burn your mouth, and enjoy.

Has anyone else ever made these?? I’ve never seen anyone else do it so I’m very curious.

The ooey gooey marshmallow and peanut butter adds just the right amount of sweetness to the salty crackers. They’re so easy and quick to make you may find yourself serving them as a staple after school snack.

  1. I was introduced to these almost 40 years ago!!! My now mil was then my Sunday School teacher and she would bring these as a snack, still warm from the oven. The only difference is she used saltine crackers. I loved them and still do!

  2. Um. Yes yes and more yes. i want to eat these.

    Crazy question, but I can’t tell by the picture are these the miniature marshmallows or the other size. We just made them with the bigger marshmallows and they are soooo good! I’m sure this will be one of favorite quick snacks around here. Just wasn’t sure about the bigger marshmallows since they are pretty gooey coming out of the crackers.

    • Angie, these are the classic large size, but I did cut them in half in order to take photos because like you said, a whole one ooozes out and I couldn’t get a decent photo ;-) Tastes better with the whole one though.

  4. This is easy and perfect for a children’s tea party. I might add a drizzle of chocolate syrup!!
