Sensational, Mouthwatering S'mores Cups

s'mores cupsThere's nothing better than s'mores -- the melty chocolate, the oozing marshmallow, all sandwiched together between graham crackers. But having a blazing fire handy isn't always the case.

Here's a recipe to get all the goodness of s'mores without striking a single match. I found these s'mores cups over at Texas Cottage, and they're as easy as they are delicious. Plus, they're cute and portable, and they last for a week. I'm making these for the next bake sale at my son's school, and I know they will be a hit.


S'mores Cups

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


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place graham crackers into a large resealable plastic bag. Finely crush into crumbs.

Combine graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and butter in a small bowl.

Place 1 tablespoon of crumb mixture in each cup of a 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 shears dipped in cold water. Place one marshmallow half, cut-side down, into each cup. Return to oven 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows are slightly softened.

Remove pans from oven to cooling rack; cool 15 minutes. Carefully remove cups from pan. Cool completely.

Break remaining candy bars and place in small microwavable bowl. Microwave on high 1 to 1 1/2 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 40 to 60 minutes or until set. Makes 24 cups.
