Smores without the campfire! These peanut butter smores pie jars have graham crackers, marshmallow, and chocolate and they are served in an adorable mason jar! There is nothing cuter than tiny individual desserts in a jar!
Who doesn’t love smores? They are one of my favorites. But I can’t always get to an open fire. I like to make a big smores casserole type pie, but there is something really special about individual desserts. Cute little desserts in a jar are my favorite. I love that they seal up in the fridge, they are ready to pass out to each person, and they make you feel special because they are so cute! There’s nothing better!

Healthy Peanut Butter
A healthy natural peanut butter adds protein to this recipe, but it also adds some amazing flavor too. So don’t skip it, because it’s makes the recipe. Protein helps your body process sugar, so any time you can add protein to a dessert, it’s a healthy way to help your blood sugar stay on track.
The peanut butter smores pie jars are the perfect way to celebrate whatever occasion you want.
- This recipe can be a no-bake recipe if you have a torch to brown the tops of your s’mores jars, but if you don’t, you can quickly brown them under the broiler. Mason jars aren’t really made for oven use, so don’t bake a recipe in it’s entirety in them.
- Be patient with the peanut butter filling to melt the chocolate and peanut butter. The peanut butter will take slightly longer to melt and blend than the rest of the chocolate around the peanut butter. So just trust the process. It’s going to be worth it!
Peanut Butter Smores Pie
Peanut Butter Smores Pie in a Jar
Graham Cracker Crust
- 1 ½ cups crushed graham crackers
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- ⅓ cup melted butter
Peanut Butter Chocolate Filling
- 1 ½ cups heavy cream
- ½ cup milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- ¼ cup sugar
- 4 eggs
- 15 peanut butter cups
- 1 7 ounce container of Marshmallow Creme

- In a small mixing bowl combine the graham crackers crumbs, brown sugar and melted butter until you have a crumbly mixture.
- Take a large spoonful of the graham cracker mixture into the mason jars and use clean fingers to press and mold into the bottom of each container. Set aside.
- In a saucepan or pot, pour the heavy cream, milk, vanilla, and sugar together and mix.
- Turn on medium hot and bring to a boil, stirring every few minutes.
- While you bring that to a boil, take a separate bowl with the eggs and whisk them.
- Temper about ¼ cup of the heated milk mixture into the eggs by slowly pouring the milk into the eggs while stirring constantly until completely combined and the egg mixture is warm throughout.
- Bring the milk mixture back to a simmer on the stove.
- Add the tempered egg mixture into the saucepan or pot and stir constantly.
- Continuously stir until the cream mixtures thickens a little and then remove from the heat.
- Take a large bowl with the peanut butter cups and pour the thickened mixture on top of the chocolates.
- Let it sit for one minute to allow the chocolates to start melting.
- Whisk together to completely melt the peanut butter chocolate cups and to create a slightly thick and emulsified peanut butter filling.
- Fill the mason jars ¾ way full with the peanut butter filling by spooning it into each jar or using a piping bag filled with the peanut butter filling with the tip snipped.
- Let sit in the refrigerator for 1.5 to 2 hours or overnight.
- Fill each mason jar to the brim with spoonfuls of marshmallow creme.
- Add about 8 mini marshmallows on top of the creme.
- Use a butane torch to lightly brown the tops of the marshmallows or put in the oven for 5-10 minutes on broil or until the tops are lightly browned.
