S'mores Oatmeal

We love oatmeal.

Pumpkin spice.

Apple cinnamon.

But last Sunday I was in a mood, so Boo and I made S'mores Oatmeal. Completely inappropriate breakfast, but awesome.

I'm used to eating my s'mores with peanut butter, so I added a spoonful of peanut butter to my oatmeal. It was sooooooooooo good. But Boo and I had a fight after she ate all the good stuff off the top and wanted more chocolate and marshmallows for the bottom half of the oatmeal.
Boo wears her costume basically all the time.

Annie uses a kitchen torch to toast her marshmallows, but as we are torch-less around here, I just popped the ramekins in the toaster oven. But be very careful - it takes less than a minute to toast the marshmallows. And they go from perfect to ruined in about five seconds.

S'mores Oatmeal
Cooked oatmeal
Chocolate chips (or broken up chocolate bars from grandma's latest package...or trick-or-treating)
Mini marshmallows
Creamy peanut butter
You could also use broken up graham crackers, but we didn't have any around. And it was still super yummy without them.

Scoop cooked oatmeal into a ramekin. Stir in a spoonful of peanut butter.

Sprinkle marshmallows and chocolate on top of the oatmeal.

Place ramekin in a toaster oven on the broil setting and keep an eye on it. It will take less than a minute for the marshmallows to get toasty.

  1. Yes, this sounds like oatmeal I could get behind.
