One of my favorite treats this time of year for the holidays is fudge. But this time I didn’t want to make just any fudge recipe to share with you. Although plain chocolate fudge is delicious too, this peanut butter s’mores fudge is even better. That’s right, first you make a graham cracker crust, then you take regular chocolate fudge, add in some Skippy Peanut Butter, and then you add a marshmallow swirl on top. Genius. And amazingly delicious too.
This is one of the creamiest fudges I have ever had, and it has the absolute perfect blend of flavors with the chocolate, marshmallow, graham cracker and peanut butter. I promise you’ll love it too!
This weekend was just a fun holiday filled time, we went and saw Christmas lights, we decorated our Christmas tree, we made and ate this delicious fudge.

After the christmas lights, fudge and decorating our tree, we ended the day by making and decorating graham cracker houses.
I had so much fun the day before at Walmart grabbing our Skippy Peanut Butter, Honeymaid Graham Crackers and all the fixin’s I needed to decorate our graham cracker house. (Don’t forget to print off your coupon to save $0.50 when you buy any 1 Honey Maid Graham Crackers 12.2 oz or larger)
We held the walls of our houses together with peanut butter and topped them off with marshmallows and Skittles and gum drops and more. It was a blast and baby boy totally wanted to participate – though his “helping” may have made it a little harder this year, at least he’ll be able to help me snack on all the extras while we decorate next year.
I made a base for my graham cracker house by covering a cutting board with foil. Apply the peanut butter generously to the edges of each graham cracker piece as you stick them together to make sure they hold up. Cut 2 graham cracker pieces to have a triangle on one end so that they can be the sides of your house with a slanted roof. I also put an extra wall in the middle of the house to help support the roof. Slather graham crackers with peanut butter and decorate with your choice of candies.
Admire your finished work – and then if you want you can eat it all!
