S’mores Pudding Cups – indoor s’mores pudding cups complete with toasty marshmallows!
Something really exciting happened last week. Take a look..
So I bought a kitchen blow torch! Ryan has only been waiting 2.5 years. At first, I was thinking, it’s kind of weird that Ryan really wanted a blow torch. I mean, I’m the food blogger.. wouldn’t you think I’d want it? But then I remembered he’s a guy and he likes fires :)
The main reason Ryan wanted a blow torch was to make creme brûlée. I’m not into creme brûlée so I didn’t want one. How silly was I? Apparently I wasn’t thinking that a blow torch can be used to make other things, like perfectly toasted indoor s’mores. Now that we have one, its probably my new favorite kitchen appliance. And I should probably apologize in advance for the toasty marshmallow recipes I will be posting in the future. If you’re looking to buy a blow torch, this is the one we have.
These s’mores pudding cups are fun, super simple to make, and take under 30 minutes to make. If you skip dipping the graham cracker in chocolate, they will only take 10 minutes to make because you won’t have to wait for the chocolate to harden.
I’ll walk you through step by step how to cover the rim of the Snack Pack Pudding Cup in graham cracker crumbs.
Remove the lids to your pudding cups. Place a small amount of corn syrup on a small plate. On a second plate, place the crushed graham crackers. Doing one pudding cup at a time, place the cup upside down in the corn syrup. Quickly move the cup around, making sure to cover the edges. Lift the cup away from the corn syrup, but hold it for a moment over the plate, allowing any excess corn syrup to drip off. Place the cup upside down in the graham cracker crumbs, moving the cup around to make sure all of the edges are covered in crumbs. Turn the cup right side up. If some of the crumbs are falling off the edge of the cup, use your finger to push the crumbs back onto the rim.
Snack Pack Pudding Cups are the star of this recipe because they taste great, have new easy open lids, and contain the same amount of calcium as an 8 oz glass of milk. I picked up all of the supplies to make these s’mores pudding cups at Walmart. You might even be able to find a kitchen blow torch there!
- 4 Chocolate Snack Pack Pudding Cups
- Small amount of corn syrup, to get the graham cracker crumbs on the edge
- 4 graham crackers, pulsed into crumbs – divided
- 4 small handfuls of mini marshmallows, one per pudding cup
- 1 graham cracker broken into 4 rectangles
- 1 square of chocolate candiquik plus 1/2 tbsp vegetable shortening, for dipping the graham cracker rectangles
- Break 1 graham cracker into 4 rectangles.
- Place the chocolate candiquik and vegetable shortening in a very small saucepan over low heat. With a spatula, continue to stir until the chocolate is melted, this may take up to 8 minutes, but keep the heat on low as to not scorch the chocolate.
- Once the chocolate is melted, dip the graham crackers until the chocolate at an angle. Place the graham crackers on a piece of wax paper until the chocolate is hard.
- In a small food processor or blender, plus the 4 graham crackers until you have crumbs. Place half of the crumbs on a plate. Reserve the other half.
- Place a small amount of corn syrup on another plate, put the two plates side by side.
- Remove the lids from the pudding cups.
- Doing one pudding cup at a time, take one cup and place it upside down in the corn syrup. Quickly move the cup around while it’s upside down to coat the rim of the cup. Remove the cup from the corn syrup and then place it upside down again into the graham cracker crumbs. Move the cup around to coat the rim in crumbs. Repeat this process until all of the rims on the pudding cups have been coated with graham cracker crumbs. Some of the crumbs might fall off if there was too much corn syrup in one place. Simply use your finger to push the crumbs back onto the rim of the cup.
- Use the remaining graham cracker crumbs to sprinkle evenly inside each pudding cup.
- Place a small handful of mini marshmallows in each cup.
- In you’d like to toast the marshmallows, use a kitchen torch to toast them lightly. Or broiler the marshmallows by themselves ahead of time in the oven.
- Top each cup with a chocolate dipped graham cracker and serve.
If you do not have a blow torch, you could place small handfuls of marshmallows on a baking sheet lined with tinfoil. Broil the marshmallows in the oven for a minute or two until they are toasty. Then use a spatula to transfer the marshmallows to the pudding cups. But a blow torch could be a great present for the chef in your family!
