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.
Today I’m sharing my version of a jazzed-up stay-at-home camping treat- these Peanut Butter- S’Mores Turnovers.
How to Make Peanut Butter S’Mores Turnovers:
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 the Peanut Butter S’Mores Turnovers 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 are the Peanut Butter S’More’s Turnovers- 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!

Peanut Butter S'Mores Turnovers
A delicious mix of peanut butter, chocolate and marshmallow baked into a flaky puff pastry!
- 2 sheets (1 box) Puff Pastry (I always use Pepperidge Farm)
- 3 whole graham crackers, broken into fourths
- 9 .49-ounce mini milk chocolate bars
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- small bowl of water
- 1 large egg, whisked with 1 tablespoon water
- 1/2 cup Marshmallow Creme
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick spray.
Lay the Puff Pastry on a cutting board. Working with one sheet of Puff Pastry at a time, cut on the three folds, creating 3 rectangles (about 3" x 10" each). Cut each 3 x 10 rectangle in half. You'll have 6 pieces to work with for each sheet of Puff Pastry.
ASSEMBLE THE TURNOVERS:
Lay a graham cracker on 1/2 of each square, top with chocolate that has been cut down to match the length of the graham cracker. Scoop a scant 1 tablespoon peanut butter on top of each chocolate bar.
Working with one turnover at a time, wet the edges of the Puff Pastry and fold (over) in half to meet opposite edges. Gently push the edges together to stick; use a fork to seal the edges together and create a ridged pattern. Repeat with each turnover until all are sealed up. Gently move the sealed turnovers to a baking sheet with a small spatula. (At this point, the turnovers may be refrigerated for up to an hour before baking- cover the baking sheet with plastic wrap- when ready to bake, remove from the refrigerator and continue with the instructions).
READY TO BAKE:
Brush the turnovers lightly with egg wash, then use a sharp knife to cut two small slits into the top of each turnover.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until the turnovers are puffed and golden. Remove from the oven. Let cool for 5 minutes. Scoop the marshmallow creme into a zip baggie (don't zip). Microwave for 8 seconds to soften. Zip the bag and snip a small piece off of the corner of the bag. Drizzle marshmallow onto the top of each turnover. Serve immediately.
- *For the milk chocolate bars- I use Hershey's .49 ounce bars. Use any sort of chocolate that sounds good to you. Just cut it down or break it into pieces that fit on top of a 1/4 of a whole graham cracker. (Leftover mini Hershey's bars from Halloween work great!)
- *Marshmallow Creme (also known as "Fluff" in some parts of the world) comes in a jar and is usually found in the baking aisle near the marshmallows.
- *I tested this recipe with real marshmallows and they didn't work as well as the marshmallow creme.
- *This recipe can be easily cut in half- just thaw out one sheet of Puff Pastry.
- *These are best served while warm & gooey, but they can certainly be eaten any time!
