Salut to Saturday: S’mores Day

 

Today is National S’mores Day! No worries if you don’t happen to have a campfire nearby- here’s a dessert and cocktail recipe without the risk of flaming marshmallow projectiles!

S’mores Cupsfd0b0d07fb41ddb0f65b1a8f5d0a232aIngredients (makes 24 cups)

  • 7 whole graham crackers, finely crushed
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 6 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 lb. milk chocolate wafers
  • 12 large marshmallows

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Place graham crackers into a large resealable plastic bag and crush them up with a rolling pin. Combine graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and butter.
  • Spoon mixture into a cupcake or mini-muffin baking pan. Press crumbs into a shallow cup shape. Bake 4-5 minutes or until edges are bubbling and start to brown.
  • Cut marshmallows in half and place cut-side down onto the crumbs. Bake 1-2 minutes to soften the marshmallows. Wait until they cool completely and remove from pan before the next step.
  • Heat chocolate wafers in a microwave on HIGH 1 minute-1 1/2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring every 20 seconds. If it gets too dry or chunks up add a few drops of vegetable oil. Dip the top of each marshmallow in melted chocolate. Let cool. *hint* If you don’t have a microwave just place a chocolate wafer on the marshmallows in the previous step.
