Summer isn’t summer without our late nights, campfires & best of friends.
Campfires are my thing & I love the smell of being outdoors & the smell of campfires.
And of course I love them because it reminds me of Shane & I’s second date ♥
Oh and lets not forget about the amazing treats!
So if you are like me, once you have a craving, YOU HAVE A CRAVING. And it doesn’t stop until you settle it, so of course mine involves chocolate..♥
So due to weather, health, or other reasons that we can’t always get our genuine campfire or our roasting sticks I had to improvise with last week’s craving of S’mores!
Introducing to you the S’more Bites!
These s’mores are perfect because they taste amazing & are perfect for those days when you don’t have the access to a campfire, plus you can make them in the comfort of your home.
The recipe below roughly makes about 16-18 s’mores bites, they are so incredible, tiny & perfect ♥
Prep time: 2 minuets
Making Time: 10 minuets
Cleanup time: 2 minuets
- 7 graham crackers, finely crushed
- 1/4 cup of powdered sugar
- 6 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 Hershey’s Milk Chocolate candy bars, broken into individual squares
- 12 large marshmallows, cut in half
- mini cupcake tray
- small mixing bowl
- Large plastic bag*
- rolling pin*
- cooling rack*
* optional (see directions below)
Pre-heat your oven to 350•
Place all seven graham crackers in a plastic bag, use rolling pin until they are a finely crushed, **this was just my method, you can finely crush them any way that you like**
Melt your butter & mix in powdered sugar & graham cracker crumbs
Lightly grease your mini cupcake pan & evenly distribute them until you run out, I’ve found out that you want to pack it down & fill in a good amount for the shell.
Bake them in the oven for 4-5 minuets, you’ll see the edges start to bubble (your kitchen will smell amazing!)
While these are baking, I’ll take the time to break up my chocolates into little squares & cut my marshmallows (with scissors) in half
Take the tray out of the oven & place 1 chocolate in each cup (they’ll start to melt, don’t worry!)
You’ll do the same with the half cut marshmallow ( I found it easier to do the flat side down)
Place them back in the oven on broil (for the golden marshmallow look) for 2-4 minuets (They’re almost done!!)
Watch them closely while you have them in the oven because they will change before your eyes & everyone’s oven is slightly different
Place the delicious miracle on a cooling rack for 10-15 minuets, the trick is to sort of “pop” them out, I used a small spatula.
Perks to this is your entire kitchen will smell wonderful & I got wife points for making the best treat ever!
Originally I got this idea from Pintrest & adapted the recipe from thefirstyearblog.com
I want to hear everyone’s experience for making these! Seriously, my husband & I ate all of them in one night, they’re too amazing!
Side note, apparently I can’t even say the word s’mores right…I say sa-mores, I’ve been saying it like that my whole life and now my husband tells me!? Still can’t break the habit ha ha.
