Today August 10th 2021 is National S’mores day and what better way to celebrate than with one of my favorite recipes! Growing up in Michigan s’mores were an essential part of the summertime. Over the years I have fallen in love with different ways to make s’mores and still get the original taste. I have always loved adding chocolate and peanut butter together and when deciding how to update this recipe i’ve had for years I knew peanut butter was the perfect fit. It adds something special to the traditional s’mores taste.

⅓ cup unsalted butter

⅓ cup flour
To add last:
¼ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
