Happy National Smores Day

Smores Cups

Here’s a small bite size alternative to traditional smores.  It has a graham cracker based crust.  I used dark chocolate instead of standard milk chocolate, which was less sweet and a nice compliment to the marshmallows.  Of course, it’s topped with a toasted marshmallow.

Recipe:

Ingredients:

8 honey graham cracker sheets

6 Tbls of melted butter

1/4 cup of powered sugar

12 Hershey’s dark chocolate miniatures, broken in half

12 large marshmallows, torn in half

Directions:

Preheat one oven to bake at 350 and set another oven to broil

Spray 2 12-cup mini muffin tins with cooking spray

In a food processor, chop the graham crackers sheets until all is finely chopped.  Add the melted butter and powdered sugar to the graham crackers and mix well.

Evenly separate the graham cracker mixture into the 24 cups.  Press the mixture firmly onto the bottom and sides.  Bake for 4 minutes in the oven set at 350.

Remove from oven.  Place one piece of the halved chocolate miniature in each cup.  Top with a torn marshmallow, smooth side up.

Place in broil for about 1 minute.  WATCH CLOSELY!  Remove when marshmallow is lightly browned.

Allow to cool a bit before indulging.

HAPPY BAKING!
