These S’more bites are my sister-in-law’s contribution to the Holiday Cookie Swap!
The majority of baked goods that come out of the Dunn’s (of Pleasant Hill) home are in cupcake form. For as long as I can remember my brother has loved cupcakes and to toot his horn a little, he is very good at making them. I guess that must be a Dunn trait: if you want to eat it often, you learn how to make it well. Now his wife Steph has joined in by adding her own tricks and twists on cupcake formed baked goods. She made s’more bites in a mini cupcake pan and they are little bites of heaven. She said they are pretty easy too!
*Recipe is from The Pampered Chef
- 7 whole graham crackers (1 cup/250 mL finely crushed)
- 1/4 cup (50 mL) powdered sugar
- 6 tbsp (90 mL) butter, melted
- 4 bars (1.55 oz or 43 g each) milk chocolate candy, divided
- 12 large marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Place graham crackers into a large resealable plastic bag. Finely crush into crumbs. Combine graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and butter into a small bowl. Using a spoon, place scant scoop of crumb mixture in each cup of your 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 scissors dipped in cold water (makes it less sticky). Place one marshmallow half, cut-side down, into each cup. Return to oven 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows are just slightly softened. Remove from oven to your cooling rack; cool 15 minutes. Carefully remove cups from pan. Cool completely.
Break remaining candy bars and place in a small bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute-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 minutes-1 hour or until set.
Yield: 24 cups
You can keep them in the fridge for a week. When you are ready to eat, be sure to pop them into the microwave for about 15 seconds to have some melty s’more cups:)
Bites of heaven I tell you. Bites of heaven.
Guess what? They are only 100 calories.
100 calorie s’more cup or 100 calorie apple for my afternoon snack? I know what I’m choosing.
Thanks for making & sharing these, Steph!
