S'more Cups

The best thing about these little delights, was making them with my kids. It's a fun recipe for S'mores if you don't have a campfire handy!
The original recipe is from Pampered Chef, but when we made them we didn't use all of their fancy tools & whatnot. It was still super easy.

 7 whole graham crackers (1 cup finely crushed)
1/4 cup powdered sugar
6 tbsp butter, melted
4 bars milk chocolate candy, divided (I used Wilton's melting chocolates because I had a bag I wanted to use up & it worked great)
12 large marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place graham crackers into a large resealable plastic bag. Finely crush into crumbs using a rolling pin. Combine graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and butter in small bowl, stir until mixed well. Distribute crumb mixture evenly into each cup of a 24 cup mini-muffin pan. Press crumbs to form shallow cups. Bake 4-5 minutes or until edges are bubbling. Meanwhile, break two of the candy bars into rectangles. Remove pan from oven; place one rectangle into each cup. (Or 2 Wilton's melting chocolates. Also be careful of the hot pan.)
Cut marshmallows in half crosswise using scissors dipped in cold water. Place one marshmallow half, cut-side down, into each cup. Return to oven 2-3 minutes or until marshmallows are just slightly softened. Remove from oven.

Now the Pampered Chef recipe says to let the cups cool then take the remaining chocolate, melt it in a bowl & dip the top of the marshmallow in it. But as you can see I did not do this. It was so much more fun & easier for my boys just to plop a piece of chocolate on the top of the marshmallow as soon as it came out of the oven. It melted a little bit & then cooled & it worked out perfectly! After they've cooled, run a butter knife around the edges of them & they pop right out of the pan!


  1. I like the chocolate disc on top. It really makes it look fancy. Thanks, Sarah! I'll be making these for sure.

  2. These are so fun! I used Hershey's chocolate bars, and after I broke them up into sections I cut some of the sections in half and put a little square on top of the marshmallow and they melted a cute square on it! :) Thanks Sarah!
