I wanted to display my ingredients in cute little bowls, but then I remembered that I live in Iowa….along with the bugs, flies, gnats, mosquitoes, and spiders!! So I opted to purchase these awesome plastic canisters with sealing lids to keep the critters out! {also at Walmart} 😉

Next, I made my Homemade Peanut Butter in a blender. I don’t know why I didn’t think to use my food processor, but I didn’t. I’m sure that would work as well, if not better, so go for it if you have one. Add 16 ounces of unsalted, dry roasted peanuts…..

and begin pulsing/blending to chop the nuts. Continue blending until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. IF your mixture is too dry, add safflower or canola oil one teaspoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency…..

If it’s too hot, or raining outside don’t worry, you don’t always need a campfire to make S’mores. In fact,  I had to make new ones for the above image ^^^ so I simply roasted my marshmallows over the flames on my gas stove. 🙂
