Here’s a quick video peek at how to make these Peanut Butter S’Mores Turnovers. The printable recipe is at the end of this post.
I’m not much of a camper. My husband often takes my son on camping trips, and I happily stay behind and thank the gods for our bug-free house, cozy bed and well-stocked kitchen. I always send them off in comfort… marinate a little meat for them to throw on the grill, pack up some convenience foods and bake a few goodies too.
When they return from their camping weekends, I hear mostly about the evenings sitting around the campfire. Story telling, snuggling in blankets, singing songs and roasting marshmallows for S’Mores seem to be recurring favorites. It all sounds great and everything, but it’s just not for me. I’ll happily tell a story, snuggle in a blanket and sing a song next to a roaring fire inside a mountain cabin and nibble on homemade baked goods instead.
Here’s the How To:
Thaw out a box of Puff Pastry, and cut along the fold lines to make 6 large rectangles. Cut each rectangle in half lengthwise.
Layer 1/4 of a whole graham cracker, a piece of milk chocolate bar and a spoonful of peanut butter on one side of the Puff Pastry.
Wet the edges with water (dip your finger in water and gently touch along the edge), fold over the filling ingredients and press edges together. Use a fork to seal the edges. Repeat with remaining pieces.
Transfer filled turnovers to a parchment-lined baking sheet, and brush with egg wash.
Use a sharp knife to cut a couple of slits in the top of each turnover (to allow steam to escape while baking).
Bake at 400 degrees F. until golden (about 15 minutes).
Scoop marshmallow creme into a zip baggie and microwave it for about 8 seconds. Snip the tip of the bag, zip it and drizzle marshmallow on top of warm turnovers.
Here’s the S’More’s Turnover- deconstructed…
The Puff Pastry gives the S’Mores an elegant touch, and frankly… they’re a lot easier to eat tucked inside of a turnover. I think the picture above pretty much explains how this delicious dessert turns out. If you’re a chocolate+peanut butter lover, you’ll be a big fan for sure. Hint: Save a few chocolate bars from your kid’s Trick or Treating loot to bake up a few of these S’More’s treats!
