What else can I use to make the s’mores crust?
This is where this recipe can get interesting – and fun! While I like to use crushed graham crackers, you can easily swap those out for crushed cookies.
Think Oreo crust, chocolate chip cookie crust, or even chocolate animal crackers crust! The options are unlimited on what you can use to change up the s’mores crust flavor and look.
Ingredients for S’more cups with graham cracker crust:
- Graham crackers– Used to make the crunchy crust. Graham cracker crumbs are easy to make, so crush up those crackers!
- Powdered Sugar– Adding the powdered sugar to the crust adds a hint of sweetness.
- Melted butter – This is what helps the crumbs of the crust stick together.
- Chocolate – I like to use Hershey’s chocolate bar pieces, but any chocolate will work great. Dark chocolate would be a great contrast to the sweetness of the marshmallows.
- Marshmallows – You can use regular marshmallows or mini marshmallows, whatever you have on hand.
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 355 degrees. Break up the graham crackers and add powdered sugar and melted butter. Mix well.
Step 2: Add 2 TB of the mixture into your baking pan. Use the back of a spoon and make a small indention in the middle of each. Place the muffin pan in the oven and bake for 7-8 minutes.
Step 3: Take the crusts out of the oven, then add the chocolate pieces into the center intentions.
Step 4: Top of the Hershey’s milk chocolate with marshmallows. If you’re using large marshmallows, cut them in half.
Step 5: Bake for five more minutes or until the marshmallows turn golden brown.
Why are my baked marshmallows hard?
This is common with smores. It’s best to eat these mini smores desserts while they’re still warm because the hot marshmallow will harden as they start to cool.
It’s still delicious but will have a different texture. If you want to soften the marshmallow again, you can reheat for a few seconds.
Having a toasted marshmallow on top is key but keep an eye on these s’mores cookie cups so that you don’t cook them too long.
How can I cut marshmallows in half?
If you’re using larger marshmallows, cutting them in half is going to be a must. The easiest way to make this a mess-free process is to wet down the blades of scissors before cutting.
This simple step will keep the marshmallows from sticking to the blades and make them WAY easier to cut in half.
You could also use a wet butter knife to cut the marshmallows; otherwise, they’ll be too big for these mini smores pies.
Can I use marshmallow fluff in place of marshmallows?
Yes, you can. If you don’t have marshmallows and have marshmallow fluff, use that instead. It will still act the same as a regular marshmallow and should brown on the top, too.
How to store leftover s’mores cups with Graham Cracker Crust
If you’re lucky enough to have any of these sweet treats leftover, make sure you store them properly for the next time you eat them.mThe best way to store smores is to add them to an airtight container. You can keep them at room temperature without an issue.
Warming them back up is simple! Just pop them in the microwave for a few seconds until they are ooey and gooey again.
Variations to this Recipe:
- Try different flavors of chocolate – Semi-sweet chocolate, white chocolate, and dark chocolate all work great!
