I wouldn’t say they are less messy than the original s’mores, perhaps a bit fancier, in which case we suggest that you devour them with your pinky finger out and with a napkin on your lap.

  • hershey’s chocolate bars

Onto the marshmallow stage, and then they go back in the oven. The ‘hardest’ part of this recipe is probably crushing the graham crackers, which I did with my slap chop because I didn’t want to dirty up my food processor.

Total Time Required

  • 5 minutes to prep the crust
  • 5 minutes to pre-bake the crust
  • 5 minutes to add the chocolate and marshmallows, then bake 2-4 minutes until gooey

S'mores Bites - a twist on the classic dessert made in the oven!

S'mores Bites

Yield: 24 bites
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Total Time: 17 minutes

An easy S'mores recipe and one of our favorite desserts to make all year round. S'mores Bites are a twist on the classic s'mores dessert, make these mini s’mores in the oven!

Ingredients

  • 7 whole graham crackers (equals 1 cup), finely crushed
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 (1.55 oz) milk chocolate candy bars (I used hershey's), divided into rectangles
  • 12 large marshmallows, cut in half

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Finely crush the graham crackers into crumbs, using whatever method you want. I used my slap chop, but a food processor would work or even putting them in a plastic bag and smashing.
  3. Combine graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and melted butter into a small bowl.
  4. Evenly divide crumb mixture into each cup of a 24 cup mini muffin pan, grease slightly before using. Press crumbs down to form shallow cups.
  5. Bake 4-5 minutes or until edges are golden.
  6. While that's baking, break the candy breaks into the divided rectangle pieces. Also cut the marshmallows in half using a scissors that has been sitting in cold water.
  7. Remove the pan from the oven and place one chocolate rectangle into each cup.
  8. Place one marshmallow half, cut-side down, into each cup.
  9. Return to oven for 2-4 minutes or until marshmallows are just slightly softened.
  10. If you'd like the tops to be brown, turn the oven to broil, and broil the s'mores bites for 1-2 minutes.
  11. Cool on a cooling rack for 15 minutes before carefully removing them from the pan.
