S’mores Bites

Howdy Y’all!

So as I told you in my last post, this weekend was a birthday celebration with some GREAT friends! It was seriously a blast, and much needed after a long week.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the treats from this weekend…

Dessert Bar

But anyways, I know they all happen to LOVE sweets, mainly chocolate and nutella, I figured what better way to treat everyone than to bake some great treats! So last Thursday and Friday were a bake fest in my kitchen… I don’t know if the great smells will ever leave the kitchen, and I’m A-OK with that! So the first thing I want to show you from this little party is possibly the easiest recipe I made, S’more’s Bites! I have recently fallen in love with this little website called Pinterest, and I have seen this recipe floating around, so I decided I needed to try it out! But of course, I always have to make them my own, so I changed the recipe a bit… still simple, and I think you’ll like my version!

And don’t let simplicity of the recipe make you skeptical on it’s taste… I assure you, it is delish! And if you don’t want to take my word for it, there are none left, so I think that’s a pretty good indication! So let’s get to it…

You’ll need…

S'more's Bites Ingredients

***Not pictured- salt

You’ll need to…

Pre-heat your oven to 350°. Crush graham crackers until fine. In the bowl of your mixer, mix graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, butter and salt.

Spoon approximately 1 tablespoon of the graham cracker mixture into each cup of a mini muffin tin, and press them into tin so they form shallow cups.

Bake for 5 minutes. While baking, cut each marshmallow in half with kitchen scissors. Remove the tray from the oven, and fill each cup with mini chocolate chips. Place a marshmallow on top of each cup, cut side down.

Bake for 2-3 more minutes, until the marshmallows look soft and fluffy. Let cool in the pan for 20 minutes, then move them to a wire rack with parchment paper on it to cool completely.

In a small bowl, melt your remaining chocolate chips in the microwave, heating for 20-30 seconds at a time, stirring will in between. (It is SO important to heat for small amounts of time and stir in between, so that your chocolate does not burn. If you heat it for too long without stirring, it will not melt properly, and will not look or taste good! )Drizzle the melted chocolate on top of the marshmallows.

OMG. YUMMY! For real, they are a one bite s’more, and they are ever so tasty! They are so gooey and chocolatey on the inside, it definitely tastes like a summer campfire s’more! I might have eaten a few before the girls even got here, but can you blame me? Once you try them, I know you’ll understand! And I know I’ve said this before, but these truly are the EASIEST recipe I’ve posted, so go try them yourself!

I hope you enjoyed seeing how these delicious bites are made, and I hope you enjoy making and eating these as much as I did! Now this is just one of the many treats I made this weekend, so be expecting the rest of the recipes this week! I had WAY too many of these, among all the other treats this weekend, so I am off to go for a run! Have a great night!

Love,

Katie
