Gooey Ritz Peanut Butter Cup S'mores Bars! Buttery cake topped with marshmallow fluff, mini peanut butter cups and Ritz crackers. If these bars were a person, we'd be married and on our third kid.

You guys know how I am obsessed with Ritz Peanut Butter Cup S’mores! It is seriously the best way to do s’mores: salty and sweet with chocolate AND peanut butter. :) I wanted to incorporate those flavors into a fun, gooey, marshmallow-y cake bar. I am in love with how these turned out!! Kevin is obsessed with them! He has declared it one of his all time favorite treats ever.

Here’s all you need to make these bad boys.

First beat together 1 yellow cake mix, 1 stick softened butter, and 1 egg into a firm dough.

Then press into the bottom of a 9×13 pan that’s been lined with foil. Lining makes it so much easier to get them out of the pan!

Here’s my trick for a faster and easier way to line a pan with foil. Press foil around the bottom of the pan first, then place inside. It should fit perfectly now!

Next add a layer of Ritz crackers…

Then mix together 1 jar of marshmallow creme with 1 can of sweetened condensed milk. The sweetened condensed milk gives the marshmallow fluff a wonderful toasty flavor! :)

And pour evenly over the crackers for your sweet marshmallow filling.

Top with 2 bags mini peanut butter cups and more crushed Ritz.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool completely in pan before cutting and serving. Bars will be very gooey when warm, but will set up once cooled. You can speed up this process by putting them in the fridge. Kevin actually prefers them chilled!

Make your own restaurant-style Steamed Edamame at home in just 10 minutes or less! So delicious and fun to eat. They're the perfect after-school snack, appetizer, or side dish!

We LOVE steamed edamame (eda-mommy) around here!! They are so salty and delicious and perfect for snacking! They’re fun to pop out of their shells and eat them straight from the pod. They make an excellent appetizer and perfect side dish. They’re great to munch on while watching a movie or football game instead of popcorn or peanuts. I’m not even going to say they’re a “healthy alternative” because that makes it sound like they may be inferior in taste. But no way — edamame are delicious!! They’re the perfect combination of sweet, salty, and fun to eat.

I always feel a little silly ordering edamame at restaurants because it is literally so, so easy and just as good to make at home. All you need are edamame, salt, boiling water and less than 10 minutes.

We buy frozen edamame in bulk so we always have it on hand. I’ve even bought large containers of fresh edamame from Costco, stuck the container in a gallon size ziploc bag, and froze it myself. Either way, it freezes great and it’s so nice to always have it on hand.

We installed it when we updated our appliances, and I love it! It’s so nice to have water above the stove so I don’t have to carry heavy, full pots back and forth from the sink. The pot filler swivels, turns, and extends to easily reach any eye on the stove.
