S’more Bites

Have I mentioned how excited I am that summer is right around the corner? Warm nights, long days, traveling, camping, farmers markets….I can’t wait! I am also very excited about our first summer camping trip of the year, no more trying to make s’mores on the gas grill! No way! That first gooey treat of the summer is the whole reason I go camping! Well, maybe not, but it sure is nice having a toasty s’more after a long day of hiking.

If you don’t have a camping trip planned in the near future, give these s’more bites a try. I made a batch for our Memorial Day get together and they were devoured within minutes of placing them on the table! I guess I should have made a double batch! ;)

S’more Bites

Yield: 24 cups

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 7 minutes

Ingredients:

7 whole graham crackers (1 cup), finely crushed
1/4 cup powdered sugar
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
4 bars (1.55 oz) milk chocolate candy, divided
12 large marshmallows

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Place graham crackers into a large resealable plastic bag. Finely crush into crumbs. Combine graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and butter into a small bowl. Evenly divide crumb mixture 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.
Cut marshmallows in half crosswise using scissors dipped in cold water. Place one marshmallow half, cut-side down, into each cup. Return to oven 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows are just slightly softened. Cool on a cooling rack for 15 minutes before carefully removing cups from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
Break remaining candy bars in small pieces and place in a small bowl. Microwave on high 1 minute-1 1/2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring every 20 seconds. Dip the top of each marshmallow into the melted chocolate. Turn top-side up and let stand until set.

Recipe Note: Store the cups in a single layer in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Freezing is not recommended.
