Chocolate Peanut Butter-Covered Cheez-It S’mores Recipe

When I told Matthew Rice, the former pastry chef at Girl & the Goat, how much I like Cheez-Its, he said we should try coating them with chocolate and peanut butter. Lo and behold, they taste just like little Butterfingers. (He actually made a Cheez-It wedding cake for Gary and me that had them on the inside.) So when I was thinking about things to do on the grill for Fourth of July, I immediately though of s’mores-and then chocolate and peanut butter-coated Cheez-Its. Let guests toast their marshmallows over the fire-I’ve always been into low and slow instead of blackened, but it’s a personal decision-then slide them on a Cheez-It sandwich. It’s like a homemade candy bar.


    • 8 ounces milk chocolate pieces
    • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
    • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1 (11.7-ounce) box Cheez-It’s Bigs (make sure they’re all whole)
    • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
    • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    • Marshmallows


    1. Bring a few inches of water in a medium saucepan to a boil over medium heat.
    2. Combine the chocolate, peanut butter, and butter in a heatproof bowl that fits over the top of the pot. Melt the ingredients over the boiling water, stirring until combined.
    3. Remove from the heat and add to the Cheez-Its in a bowl. Toss to coat and then let sit for 10 to 15 minutes to avoid clumping when you add the powders.
    4. Combine the confectioners’ sugar and cocoa powder. Toss with the coated Cheez-Its.
    5. Toast the marshmallows over the open flame of a grill or stove. Smoosh the melting marshmallow between two coated Cheez-Its.
