Today I'll be sharing two varieties of S'Mores treats that are perfect for Valentine's Day, whether or not you have someone special to share the day with! First up is a S'Mores cup, which comes together quickly and is perfect for sharing at work, with a date, with family, or your girlfriends for Galentine's Day. Second, we have Individual S'Mores Bars. I'll be sharing the recipe for one, but you can easily make a huge batch of these! I promise, both of these treats are perfect food for a Netflix marathon or a dessert for a romantic dinner. I hope you enjoy!
makes 12 cups
I absolutely love making dessert cups. They're convenient for a party or having at home, because you can easily grab one and it's the perfect size for a little treat! These S'Mores cups come together in just a few minutes, and look adorable. I love how you can customize the decorations for different holidays, because I'm definitely going to be making these year round!
1 cup finely crushed graham crackers
1/4 cup powdered sugar
6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 chocolate candy bars (I used a dark chocolate bar from Aldi's, but any kind will work!)
4 oz semi sweet baking chocolate
1 tablespoon butter
6 large marshmallows, or a few handfuls of mini marshmallows
Combine graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and 6 tablespoons melted butter in a bowl.
Spoon one tablespoon of mixture into cupcake pan, and press to edges to form a cup.
Bake five minutes, until edges begin to bubble.
While the cups are baking, break candy bar into rectangles.
Add one rectangle into each graham cup.
Add mini marshmallows to each cup (I put in about 9) or half of a large marshmallow.
Return to oven to cook for 1-2 minutes, until marshmallows are soft. Remove and cool.
Microwave semi sweet chocolate and 1 tablespoon butter for about 1 minute until melted, adding 30 seconds if needed. Stir every 30 seconds and keep an eye on the chocolate!
Drizzle chocolate over marshmallows, and decorate.
Let dry for an hour, or until set.
