No Bake Peanut Butter S'mores Bars by notyourmommascookie.com

My husband is not a “sports guy.”

I love this about him.

No monopolizing the TV, no obnoxious cheering/yelling, it’s just not his scene. Heck, we don’t even watch the Super Bowl most years.

Until now…

Hubby joined in the Fantasy Football madness this year. Now, all he talks about are drafts, preseason games, injuries, and other things that I don’t care about. To be fair, I do try to listen, but it’s just not for me. In fact, I’m so unfit for this activity thatΒ I keep accidentally calling it “Final Fantasy” instead- I guess I would rather him be playing old school Japanese RPGs than turning into a “sports guy.”

I’m afraid this will escalate into actually having to WATCH football. Hold me, please!

Well, maybe I can serve these at the football watching parties that are destined in my future?

These are a peanut buttery, s’mores twist on rice crispy treats. And no need to turn on that oven – very much appreciated in this oppressive, Virginia heat. Is it fall yet!?
