  • 1 pound 16 oz white almond bark/coating
  • 1 Hershey Bar or about 2 oz milk chocolate
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups cocktail peanuts
  • 12 to 16 large S’mores Mallows if possible marshmallows**


  • Line a rimmed 14x10 inch or a 13x9 inch pan with parchment paper.
  • Split the marshmallows lengthwise.
  • In a large saucepan, melt the white coating over low heat, stirring often. Add chocolate and continue stirring on low to medium low until chocolate is melted. Stir in the peanuts.
  • Spread a thin layer of the chocolate mixture onto the parchment paper, then press the marshmallows side-by-side into the chocolate. Scrape remaining chocolate peanut mixture over the top and smooth it out with the scraper.
  • Chill (or freeze) until set. Lift from the pan and cut into squares.
  • Note: Next time I make this I might try adding the peanuts AFTER spreading the thin layer of chocolate over the bottom. It worked fine the way it’s written, but it might look nicer with a flat peanut-free base.
