What is it? A ship, a plane, Super Marshmallow? These treats look like mushroom clouds on a cracker, but don’t be fooled. They are delicious. Sweet and salty and peanut buttery.
Sometimes I see a recipe come in at Farm Bell Recipes and it’s meant to be. I saw this one come in and I had everything–the crackers, the peanut butter, the marshmallows. Okay, I didn’t have round buttery crackers as called for in the recipe, but I didn’t let my poor Saltines stop me. I was even hungry at the moment AND I had the oven already turned on and room to stick something else in there!
Who am I to say no to so many planets correctly aligned?

These are best eaten warm, so you probably shouldn’t wait till the kids come home from school to finish them off. No, I didn’t just eat ALL those snacks in the picture. Why do you ask?

This reminds me of the Earthquake cake.

Curse you Suzanne! I just quit smoking 7 weeks ago and have really been watching what I eat so I didn’t gain weight. Now, I MUST make these!

Eeks looks like a science experiment gone bad. But I’ll take your word for it that they are good.

Yum. We used to have these all the time when I was a kid. I still eat ’em every now and then. They’re also good with a sprinkle of chocolate chips between the pb and marshmallow. 😀

I saw them, and had to immediately make them. They are certainly tasty.

I guess I’ve never baked a marshmallow like that, only toasted them over an open fire or microwaved them, but they look surprisingly…strange. Like mushroom growths or geological hoodoos.
Hmmm, now that I think of it, I DO have Ritz crackers, peanut butter, and marshmallows on hand. Maybe I need to see for myself? But, wait: I have mini marshmallows. I wonder what those would look like. Fairy rings of mushrooms?

Just made six of them…..you know to test the recipe. Ate all six. Not even a crumb left.
Thanks, Jana…now I have to do the test again with chocolate chips and, Whaledancer, I used mini marshamallow and they don’t puff up as high but tasty nonetheless!

I actually had your cracker candy recipe in my head all day (I’ve been meaning to try it since I saw it as I’ve never had that before) but I don’t have any chocolate chips. I DO have peanut butter and marshmallows (and I’m craving something sweet) so I am going to try this instead.

Hmmmm… Salt? Good. Peanut butter? Good. Marshmallow? Goooood. Not sure how you can go wrong here. But it does look a little disturbing. Maybe if we eat them with our eyes closed….

Oh My! I know what I’m making some time this week for snack time! I have two girls who are allergic to peanut butter, but I think their soy butter will do! Thanks a bunch!

OHHH NOOO. I have been here before.
MMM to nibbly, crunchy, marshmallowy parts with PB & added choco bits.
I am afraid I have all the goodies to satisfy this new need.

Alright…. why did I read this at this time of day?!! gotta try them tonight but I may wait until the kids are in bed. You know… just to make sure they are good before I make them any 😉 I have some mini chocolate chips that may just make their way in there too!

I’m sorry – if I ever made anything that looked as weird as that, no matter how good it tasted,my husband would laugh at me and I’d never hear the end of it.
