Before the evolution of pinterest it seemed like there was only one thing to do with graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate – make s’mores!
But now there is like 1,001 things to do with those 3 ingredients and a lot of the recipes now don’t actually call for a fire pit. We’re learning to cook up s’mores in different ways!
For this recipe we’re sticking to the three key ingredients and adding a little butter and sugar for the sake of baking chemistry! Without the butter and sugar the graham cracker crumbs wouldn’t stick together and would essentially be crumbs :)
If you’re looking for an indoor s’more recipe that is easy and fast to make AND can feed a crowd – scroll down and get that recipe girl!
I had a little trouble naming this recipe – they are basically s’mores made in a muffin pan.
S’more muffin pan cups, s’more muffin tops …. s’more bites would be the most logical name, however we already have a recipe on the site called that!
So drumroll……….. s’mores cups!
These s’more cups are made in a regular sized muffin pan and it’s all about layering.
Step 1 – add graham cracker crumbs in each well, pressing them down firmly into the pan. I like to use a 1/2 cup or something similar to help me compact the crumbs. Bake that first layer for 5 minutes.
Step 2 – add mini marshmallows and chocolate chips. Measuring is not crucial! Add as many or as few as you’d like. Then add another layer of graham cracker crumbs on top of the marshmallows and chocolate chips. Use a cup to press the crumbs down firmly. Bake for 4 minutes.
Step 3 – add more marshmallows and chocolate chips and turn the oven to broil to toast the marshmallows until golden.
step 4 – allow the s’more cups to cool for 15 minutes before removing them from the pan. I found it easiest to use a small metal offset spatula around the outside of each s’mores cup to loosen any melted on marshmallow. I then used a spoon to remove the cups from the pan.
Once you have the s’more cups removed from the muffin pan you could heat them up in the oven on a baking sheet before serving or serve them at room temperature. Warning! They are messy and crumbly but delicious!
