S’mores Cups

Standard

Every month, each of us girls pick a new meal and a dessert. My new meal this month, was a Meatball Sub Casserole. This was one of my ‘not-so-great’ recipes. The flavor was good, it tasted like a sub, but the bread was soggy; and that got some yucky looks. =)

But my dessert came through with flying colors. Introducing: S’mores Cups. SONY DSCThe amazing little two-bite s’mores. These are very easy to make. It take a total of about 30 minutes.

S’more 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. Firmly 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.
*NOTE* If you don’t want to use the microwave, you can put a stainless or metal bowl on top of boiling water and the steam will melt the chocolate.
Enjoy!!!
