Making and enjoying s’mores is a summer classic. But what do you do if you don’t have access to a fire pit to make them the old fashion way? Well you get a bit creative- you can use the grill, the microwave, the stove, and dare I say a candle!
This recipe for S’mores Bites incorporates the 3 key ingredients that everyone loves, but is way more portable to bring to a party than a fire pit.
- 7 whole graham crackers (equals 1 cup), finely crushed
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 6 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 (1.55 oz) milk chocolate candy bars (I used hershey’s), divided into rectangles
- 12 large marshmallows, cut in half
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Finely crush the graham crackers into crumbs, using whatever method you want. I used my slap chop, but a food processor would work or even putting them in a plastic bag and smashing. Combine graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and melted butter into a small bowl.
Evenly divide crumb mixture into each cup of a 24 cup mini muffin pan, grease slightly before using. Press crumbs down to form shallow cups. Bake 4-5 minutes or until edges are bubbling. While that’s baking, break the candy breaks into the divided rectangle pieces. Also cut the marshmallows in half using a scissors that has been sitting in cold water.
Remove the pan from the oven and place one chocolate rectangle into each cup. Place one marshmallow half, cut-side down, into each cup. Return to oven for 2-4 minutes or until marshmallows are just slightly softened. If you’d like the tops to be brown, turn the oven to broil, and broil the s’mores bites for 1-2 minutes. Cool on a cooling rack for 15 minutes before carefully removing them from the pan. Do not freeze, preferably eat within 3 days of making. Hopefully this recipe has sweetened your life as much as it did to mine!
