Smores are probably one of my favorite treats for the summer. Campfires, Night Skies, Warm Nights Smores.. smores... oh... did I mention smores? :)
But in the winter I'm not always up for standing outside under the stars for a smore. haha, and well to be honest smores are messy.
So here is a fast and easy way to make small bite size smores, that can be made anytime of the year!
Also I found these adorable Heart Marshmallows Just in time for Valentines day! So not only are these super tasty, but using the heart marshmallows make this perfect for Valentines. :)
What you need:
10 whole graham crackers (finely crushed)
1/4 cup powdered sugar
6 tbsp butter, melted
1 cup milk chocolate morsels
12 large marshmallows If using regular (you'll cut these in half)
BUT if using the strawberry heart marshmallows, -you need 24--I used 1 whole heart marshmallow for each cup
All of the Pampered Chef Items
that I used)
What to do:
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 in Small Batter Bowl.
Using Small Scoop
, place scoop of crumb mixture in each cup of Deluxe Mini-Muffin Pan
Press crumbs to form shallow cups with Mini-Tart Shaper
Bake 4-5 minutes or until edges are bubbling.
Remove pan from oven; sprinkle a few milk chocolate morsels into each cup.
Put back into the Oven for about 2 minutes.
Remove Pan, take a toothpick and swirl the melted morsels to create a chocolate sauce.
Cut marshmallows in half crosswise *** TIP dip kitchen spears in cold water before cutting to prevent sticking****
(if using heart marshmallows don't cut them in half, use the whole heart marshmallow)
Place one marshmallow half, cut-side down, into each cup.
Return to oven 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows are just slightly softened.
Remove from oven to Stackable Cooling Rack;
cool 15 minutes. Carefully remove cups from pan. Cool completely.
Melt remaining milk chocolate morsels in a 1-cup Prep Bowl
Microwave on HIGH 1 minute- 2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring every 20 seconds.
Dip the top of each marshmallow in melted chocolate. Turn top-side up and let stand until hardened.
** Stick them in the fridge to harden the chocolate faster**
