My friends & I recently rented a cabin for the weekend in Big Bear, CA. Like all good winter getaways we made s’mores by the fire. Instead of posting the very basic almost idiot-proof recipe (well maybe not there is  fire involved) I decided to remake s’mores @ home – my way. Get ready to smile over these reconstructed old-time treats.


The Basics
Makes 36 Bite Sized S’mores

20 (One Box) Crushed Graham Crackers
(2/3) c. Melted Butter
(1) 7 oz Marshmallow Fluff
(12) Hershey Chocolate Bars
(3) tsp Vegetable Oil

 

Fire it Up
Heat Oven to 350 Note: You’ll be using the melted chocolate for 3 steps. Do not throw out any left over chocolate from step 3.


(1) Spray a mini muffin pan with pam.
(2) Combine the crushed graham crackers & melted butter. Press half of the mixture into the mini muffin slots, bake in oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.



(3) Boil a small pot of water, once boiling, turn off the heat and place broken down chocolate bars in a heat proof bowl and place on top of pot.  Add 3 tsp of vegetable oil and stir until completely melted.

 


(4) Once the crust is completely cooled drop 1 tsp of chocolate into each muffin cup.  Brush up against the sides of the crust. Put in freezer until hardened (Do not dispose of extra chocolate you need it for step 5 & 7).


(5) Drop 1 tsp. of Marshmallow Cream into each muffin holder. Then spoon or brush chocolate (from the leftover chocolate). The marshmallow cream will harden within minutes making the chocolate easy to maneuver. Make sure you get a nice thick layer covering all empty areas but don’t fill up the chocolate all the way, keeping some room for the topping. Refrigerate until hard.

(6) Once completely hardened, place the remaining graham cracker mixture  on top of the chocolate layer you can use your fingers to press down on to the chocolate to make sure everything sticks. Place back into oven for 10-15 minutes, or until top layer is golden. Take out and cool.  Then place the s’mores into the freezer for 30 minutes.


(7) Using a butter knife pop the s’mores out of the muffin holders.  Place on platter that you’re using the serve.  Heat up any left over chocolate and drizzle on top of the s’more.


(8) Wait until the s’mores are at room temperature. Take a bite and enjoy all the layers of this yummy goodness.

Serving Ideas

 

For a party, I placed the s’mores on the top-level of a 2 tiered tray. I then made some peanut butter cups  and put them on the bottom layer.  So pretty, yummy, and festive! With both these treats you can’t melt any chocolate lovers heart.  Find my PB cup recipe under the Find That Post! Tab.
