What’s in a S’more?
S’mores can be whatever you want them to be, but the traditional version of the s’more includes:
- Graham Crackers
If you are like me, you may like to spice them up a bit and go gourmet s’more!
What is in a Gourmet S’more?
Think out of the traditional s’mores recipe box here! I love to include other ingredients like:
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
- York Peppermint Patty
- Almond Joy
- Sweetened Coconut
But we are here to talk about one of my favorite desserts of all times, Mini S’mores Bites!
NOTE: I have made these 1000 different times and 1000 different ways (that may be an exaggeration). I have included photos on the different ways you can make them!
Word of caution…. my friend Maria and I were making these the other day and let’s just say we may have gotten a little bit distracted while they were in the oven on broil!
That batch – not so great – little too toasted :), but the second batch – incredible!! Just stay alert and keep an eye on the oven when finishing them off! (we get distracted easily!)
- Graham cracker crumbs – I prefer the store-bought crumbs as opposed to breaking them up yourself. I think they just work better!
- Powdered sugar
- Reese’s mini peanut butter cups or Hershey bars
- Mini muffin or cupcake pan (24 count total)
How to Make S’more Bites
- Mix together the ingredients for the crust (butter, graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar). SEE IMPORTANT NOTES BELOW ON CRUST!) Fill each of the muffin tins about 3/4 full and press down around the edges to make a cup. You can either use your fingers to press along the side, or use a measuring tablespoon and press it along the sides and bottom to make the cup.
- Bake crust for 5 minutes at 350 degrees.
- Place chocolate or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup in each cup. Top with half of a marshmallow.
- Place in oven on broil and watch them like a hawk! You will just want them to brown about 1-2 minutes. They will burn so don’t take your eyes off of them.
VARIATION-TIP: You can make this recipe with either the chocolate down first or the marshmallow first. The instructions above are for the chocolate first….If you do the marshmallow first, place them in the oven on broil until they begin to brown. Take them out of the oven and place the chocolate on top of the browned marshmallow and the heat from the marshmallow will melt the chocolate.)
Important note on crust
When adding the melted butter to the crust, some people find that there is too much butter and it pools in the mixture. My recommendation is to slowly add the butter and mix it in a little at a time until your mixture looks like the picture below.
If it does not look like the photo below and you are finding your butter is pooling or it is too wet, you should add some additional graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar to achieve the consistency as pictured.
The graham crackers that you use absorb differently and this will determine how much butter you will want to add. You want the mixture to be moist, but not wet.
The butter should not pool, but the mixture should stick together when you press it into the pan for the crust.
