Crackers topped with peanut butter, chocolate chips, and marshmallows and heated in the microwave. The perfect after school sweet treat!

What is it with after school and sports activities that make my boys absolutely famished the second they walk through the door? That's a bit of a joke, I only wish I had an ounce of the energy they have on a daily basis. With the way they complain though, I feel like I have to have a million snacks ready and waiting! If I don't, they totally get "hangry." Get it? Hungry and angry at the same time. Now that's a recipe for disaster if I've ever heard one!

I honestly can't blame them, they completely take after me. I'm a fine and very pleasant person most of the day (I'm sure they would argue that). If I'm hungry though? STAY AWAY. Back out of the room slowly! Give me a snack and about 10 minutes and I'll be good to go. I'm probably the reason they invented the word "hangry" and as long as my family recognizes that, our lives will be much happier!

These boys, unfortunately, are just the same. If we come home and I haven't already thought about what to give them to eat, it's bad news. The whining and complaining starts. Which then leads to them fighting with each other and crying. I'm literally exhausted just thinking about all of this chaos. And of course, there's a direct correlation between level of hunger and level of pickiness. Five minutes before in the car everyone was fine with bananas and juice, but now that sounds disgusting to them for some reason. I can't win!

The perfect snack is one that I know everyone will be in the mood for no matter what. No complaining, no arguing. Just, "Yay! Thanks, Mom!" I'll never get tired of hearing that phrase. :)

5 Minute Peanut Butter Smores

  • 5 RITZ Original Crackers
  • 2 tablespoons Peter Pan Simply Ground Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 cup miniature semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
Cooking Directions
  1. Top each cracker with a smear of peanut butter, sprinkling of miniature chocolate chips, and 2-3 miniature marshmallows. Microwave for 30-35 seconds or until marshmallows are puffy and chocolate is melted. Allow to cool on plate 1 minute before serving. Makes 1 serving.

Not only are these snacks super tasty, but they're so darn cute I can't take it! Plus, peanut butter and smores are seriously a match made in heaven, yum!

With young kiddos in the house, we go through crackers quite frequently. I was so excited to see these RITZ Original Fresh Stacks available on my last trip to Walmart. There was such a sweet lady sharing samples of RITZ Original Cracker with Peter Pan Simply Ground Peanut butter and a slice of banana on top. It was such a fun and simple snack, I was inspired to go home and create my own!

Those Fresh Stacks make it much easier to slip a sleeve of RITZ Original Crackers into the diaper bag when we're on the go. Be sure to check out RITZ Fresh Stacks Ultimate Butter on store shelves since March 28th, while supplies last - they sound super yummy!
