Baked S’Mores Cups Recipe

Baked SMores Cups

Most people that I know absolutely love S’mores but not everyone can have a fire in their back yard to make them and toasting marshmallows over a gas grill or burner on your stove just isn’t the same. These Baked S’Mores Cups can be just the right solution for when you are having a craving for S’Mores and they aren’t nearly as messy. (and way better for your waistline than my Double Chocolate Brownie S’Mores in a Jar recipe). Even better, you can make a big batch of these and add them to your dessert table for your next party! If you want something a little less messy for the kids, you can also make them a batch of S’Mores Marshmallow Pops so that they don’t use your sofa to clean the chocolate off their hands!)

You will notice that I am having you crush up graham crackers instead of the easier solution of just using prepackaged graham cracker crumbs. You can certainly use those instead…I just happen to prefer using cinnamon-flavored graham crackers and they don’t make that flavor of the crumbs.

To make these Baked S’Mores Cups, you will need:

Ingredients (makes 12):

  • 32 2 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ Graham cracker pieces (or 8 “long” graham cracker sheets)
  • 1 cup Semisweet or Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 6 marshmallows
  • 4 tbsp melted Butter
  • 2 additional Graham cracker pieces, crushed

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Crush graham crackers in food processor or in a plastic bag.
  3. Add the melted butter to the crumbs and use a fork to mix.
  4. Press the graham cracker mixture in to 12 holes of a mini muffin tin.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and place 4 or 5 chocolate chips in each graham cracker cup.
  7. Cut  each marshmallow in half using kitchen shears. Place a marshmallow half on top of chips (cut side down). Repeat until all cups are filled
  8. Return the pan to to the oven for 3 minutes (until marshmallow is slightly soft).
  9. Remove pan from the oven and place on a cooling rack for 15 minutes.
  10. Remove cups from muffin tin to a serving platter.
  11. Melt remaining chips in microwave by heating for 30 seconds and stirring then repeating until melted and smooth. Top each marshmallow with chocolate
  12. Top chocolate with additional graham cracker crumbs.

Serve and enjoy!
