S’mores Bites

Tailgating is finally here! Along with football, of course. I was asked to bring a dessert to a tailgate so I wanted to make something fun, bite sized, and yummy. Not a typical banana pudding or something like that. After a lot of searching I found these guys that were so delicious the first time I made them I just had to make them for the tailgate. The recipe is altered a little bit from the original, but the original is great as well!

You can probably put this one under the “not so guiltless tab,” but if you eat them in moderation (aka 1 serving size) you’ll be ok :)

 

Smore’s Bites

(Adapted from Sweet Pea’ s Kitchen)

Servings: 12 (2 bites per serving)

Amount per serving: 159 calories—20g carbs—9g fat—1g protein—10g sugar

Ingredients:

  • 7 graham crackers- crushed finely ( I used a food processor)
  • 6 tablespoons butter—melted
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 12 large marshmallows cut in half (hamburger style, I guess would be the way to describe it)
  • 6 tablespoon semi sweet chocolate chips divided

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Grind your graham crackers and melt your butter
  3. In a bowl, combine crushed graham crackers, butter, and powdered sugar until it form a dense crumble mixture
  4. Separate the mixture in an ungreased mini muffin pan and mold the mixture into a crust once in the pan.**I use a teaspoon measurer because it helps make a pretty dent and it takes less time. Don’t be scare to add more to one if you think it’s too thin! 
  5. Bake for 3-4 minutes or until the crust looks bubbly (it won’t be hard yet).
  6. Take 4 tablespoons of your chocolate chips and put them inside the crusts (2-3 chips per bite). Then top each bite with a halved marshmallow like this: 
  7. Put back in the oven and back for another 3 minutes or so. Until the marshmallow looks really puffy!!
  8. Take out of the oven and let cool for about 5 minutes. Then transfer the bites from the pan to a plate.
  9. In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the remainder (or more, if you’d like) of the chocolate chips, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
  10. Drizzle the chocolate over the bites until they’re covered as you desire and tad-a!
  11. Enjoy!

I’ve made these a few times so words of advice:

Don’t try to make them bigger. The crust doesn’t hold up.

Don’t try to use “a little less butter.” The crust doesn’t hold up.

Don’t try to take out the bites before they’ve gotten some time to cool. The crust won’t harden enough and you’ll get a crumble-y mess.

That said, these are really easy to make and they’re yummy! I made a double batch for a 10 person tailgate and they disappeared.
