Mini S'mores

Everything is cuter in a miniature version, right?  These little guys are no exception.  Some might argue that s'mores are a thing of summer, but I would argue that these are exactly what February needs.  These cuties are perfectly packable and would make awesome Valentine's day goodies for someone you love.


Plus, they are super fun and fast to make and a great project to keep little hands busy.
Break apart your grahams.  Add some mini mallows.


Pop them under your broiler on low for 30 seconds to 2 minutes.  


When they are golden brown, pull them out... 


...and top with another graham cracker piece.


Melt some chocolate and dip away!

Garnish with sprinkles, nuts, toasted coconut, or whatever your little heart desires.  Let the chocolate set up then package them up for the lucky recipients! 


 Quick little tip: an inexpensive way to buy sprinkles is at a grocery store bakery. These 8 oz containers are $1.98 at my Walmart.  They usually have a better variety of seasonal/holiday sprinkles at the bakery, too.



 

 

Mini S’mores

Ingredients:


Graham crackers, each sheet broken into 4 individual crackers
Miniature marshmallows
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tablespoon coconut oil or shortening


Directions:


Preheat your broiler to low.  Lay half of the graham crackers, dimple side down, on a baking sheet.  Top each cracker with 3 miniature marshmallows.  Broil on low for 30 seconds to 2 minutes (time will vary by oven, but watch them closely while they’re in there.  It won’t take long.  When the marshmallows are puffy and golden brown, remove them and quickly top them with the remaining graham crackers.  Press each one down until the sticky insides of the marshmallow begin to ooze.  The stickiness will help the top crackers stay put.  


In a small microwave safe bowl, heat the chocolate chips and the coconut oil or shortening in 30 second increments until they can be stirred smooth.  (It should only take about 1 minute.  Be careful not to overheat the chocolate or it will seize up.)  Dip one end of each graham cracker marshmallow sandwich into the melted chocolate.  Set on waxed paper or a sheet of parchment.  Add sprinkles or other garnishes, if desired.  Allow the chocolate to set up before serving.
