Marguerites: Peanut Butter Marshmallow Crackers Recipe

These little gems go a ways back in our family.  My grandma, who is now 90 made these for her 4 little kids growing up.  Then of course, the tradition passed on to my mom, myself and now my kids.  It is a yummy after school snack. 

The original recipe called for a large marshmallow and my grandma toasted the crackers in the oven.  As time and inventions have occurred, we have adapted to microwaves and mini marshmallows.  But they are still just as yummy!

Soda Crackers
Peanut Butter
Mini Marshmallows

Spread peanut butter on soda crackers.  Place 4-5 mini marshmallows on top of the peanut butter.  You can make 10-15 at a time on a plate.  With 10-15 crackers, place them on a microwave-safe plate in the microwave for 30 seconds.  *Note that if you make less, you will need to adjust the time accordingly.  5 crackers will probably take about 15 seconds.

My kids favorite part is watching the marshmallows expand when they come out.  And of course eating them.

Thanks grandma for a fun after school tradition!

I grew up on these! It's a recipe that's been around forever in my family, too. Most recipes I've seen use Ritz or graham crackers... glad to see you using saltines like us! :)
