Elephant Bread

Elephant bread

I tend to go through cycles in my guilty pleasures. But recently, it has been elephant bread. I was taught the skills of making this sinfully delicious treat by my mother’s best friend, and I shall forever be indebted to her. All you need to make it is a piece of toast (lightly toasted), peanut butter, and marshmallows.

First, preheat your oven to about 400 degrees. Then, spread a good coating of peanut butter on your toast. I loooove Smuckers all natural peanut butter, and I also buy it to support a local business. (Smuckers is based in Orrville, Ohio, which is about 30 minutes from where I live.) Place marshmallows evenly across the peanut butter and then pop it in the oven (on a cookie sheet), and toast for about 8 minutes or until the marshmallows are puffed and slightly golden brown.

I remove the bread from the oven with a gigantic burger flipper (which I never use on burgers, by the way! ha!) and then let it cool for a minute or two before enjoying the bit of heaven in my mouth. I’m telling you, this treat hits the spot.

    I’ve never even heard of such a thing! It’s like the smore’s less fancy, but actually better looking cousin. That last photo is so pretty.
    Would probably taste good with some chocolate, too. Maybe a layer of nutella under the PB?

    That looks so, so grossly unhealthy. I can’t wait to eat twenty of them. Thank you, I never would have thought to put those two things together.

  16. This is seriously going to kill my low carb eating plan, but I just might have to try this one. :)

    That looks like the loophole in my “no desserts during the week” plan. YES.
    I didn’t know you were in Ohio! *waving from Cincinnati*

    I remember Fluffer Nutters as previously mentioned. They are made with Fluff a marshmellow cream and peanut butter. I can’t get Fluff in California so I will try this various. Can’t wait.

  20. Mandi says:

    Oh, you can definitely make it in a toaster oven! I sometimes just use a microwave. Its pretty much just use what you have. :)
