S'mores Cupcake Bites...No Campfire Needed!

My sweet tooth has won again. These S'mores Cupcake Bites are amazing! Those of you who know me personally know that I am not exactly the camping type. But, who needs camping and a camp fire when you can make this delicious camping favorite at home! These are so easy to make and look like you bought them from some fancy bakery! Here is the recipe for you to enjoy!

2 packages Graham Crackers (about 8 whole crackers) finely crushed

1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar

1 Stick Butter (melted)

4 Bars Hershey's Chocolate

12 Marshmallows

I used a muffin pan with 12 cups. The recipe above is for 12. Spray the muffin pan with non-stick spray. In a bowl, mix graham crackers, sugar, and butter, then press into the bottom of each muffin cup forming a crust. Bake this at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes.

Once this comes out of the oven, place one small rectangle of Hershey's Chocolate into each muffin cup followed by one marshmallow. I flattened each marshmallow just slightly between the palms of my hands before placing it in the muffin cup.

Place the muffin pan back in the oven for 2-3 minutes. Just long enough for the marshmallow to melt down a little. While this is baking, melt the remainder of your chocolate bars. To do this, I placed a glass bowl on top of a sauce pan of simmering water. Make sure that the water does not boil. You don't want the chocolate to burn. This is also why I don't just melt the chocolate in the microwave. It tends to have a burnt taste.

Pull your muffin pan out of the oven and allow to cool long enough to handle. Pop each S'mores Cupcake Bite out, CAREFULLY. Then dip the tops into the melted chocolate. Allow them to cool and the chocolate on top to harden. Then they are ready to enjoy! They only lasted a few days in my house and now you're only 5 ingredients and a few simple steps away from enjoying them too!
