Nathan enjoys peanut butter, too, but not nearly as much as my family does. However, when I made him this toast while we were dating and he loved it, I knew he was the one! Anyone in our family must like this toast.
You see, this toast is not only a delicious and filling snack perfect for cold wintry nights, but it's also a Martin Family Tradition. Every year when my family would start decorating the Christmas tree, my mom could be found in the kitchen making Peanut Butter Marshmallow Toast and Hot Chocolate. We would have it other times during the year, but it was definitely way more special while we were decorating the tree.
My mom tells me it originated when her and my dad were newly married and poor. They whipped this up one night, and it's been a family favorite ever since!
Peanut Butter Marshmallow Toast -- My Mom
Here's what you'll need:
- Peanut Butter (we choose JIF, but feel free to use your favorite PB)
- Sandwich bread
Slap some peanut butter on some sandwich bread . . . if you're like me, you like enough PB to make yourself choke (mine's on the right). If you're like Nathan, you like just a thin, even layer.
Then drop some marshmallows on top . . .
Throw it in your oven on Broil, and keep an eye on it. You want the marshmallows to be brown/dark brown, but not black and crispy!
When it's done, take it out and eat it while it's piping hot and the PB is dripping everywhere! It's a tad messy, but you'll never care.
Serve alongside some hot chocolate (if you're like Nathan), or a nice cold glass of Eggnog (if you're like me!)
So, what kind of holiday family traditions do you have? Does your family have a food tradition like us? Do you love peanut butter just as much as I do? I'd love to hear! :)
