Smore Bites

Lookin' for new ways to have old classics I stumbled upon this version of 'Smores from Baking With Blondie!




For some, this recipe will be missing the bonfire ambiance, and for others it will be "just too cumbersome"; but, for those who push thru the detail work...enjoy! On the other hand, Mom just might be open to suggestions over Fall Break or Parents Weekend!

S'more Bites

Equipment:
Mini Muffin Tin, sprayed with PAM
Mixing Bowl
Large ZipLock Bag
Large Food Can (if you don't have rolling pin or processor, crush the crackers in bag)
PAM spray

Ingredients:
7 whole graham crackers, finely crushed 
1/4 cup powdered sugar
6 Tbls butter, melted
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Large marshmallow, cut in half

Extra Chocolate Chips, for melting and drizzling on final product (optional)



Instructions:
1. Wash your hands and preheat oven to 350F degrees.
2. Grind or crush or process graham crackers until finely crushed.


3. Add powdered sugar and melted butter, mixing until coarse mixture.


4. The mixture should be formidable but not too sticky or greasy.


5. Spray mini-muffin tin with non-stick spray.
6. Using the back of a measuring spoon, press 1 Tbls of crust mixture into each cup.


7. Bake crusts x 4 minutes.  Be careful not to burn these.
8. Remove from oven and add 3-4 large dark chocolate chips to the base. Bake x 1 minute.


9. When ready to serve, place 1/2 of large marshmallow on top of your cup.


10. Broil cautiously until you start seeing that golden brown color we love so much! 
11. Allow to cool and set x 2-3 minutes before removing cautiously from the muffin tins.


If you want to get fancy, slowly nuke a handful of chocolate chips, and drizzle over top before inhaling! 



P.S. Cautious broiling is the best way to brown marshmallows if you are stuck inside!
