S’More Cups

3 Aug

Who doesn’t love S’Mores in the summer time?

Well here at WhoopieCookie we can’t seem to get enough.  Check our other S’More-related posts here, here and here.

To make the S’More cups you’ll need…

3/4 cup softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup graham cracker crumbs (one full package–there are several packages in a box)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 bag of chocolate chips (I used bittersweet)
1 chocolate bar (I used bittersweet)
1 bag of large marshmallows

Once you’ve got all that…

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Beat the butter and sugars together until fluffy.  Add the egg and vanilla.  In a separate bowl combine your dry ingredients (flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda and salt).  Add the dry mixture to your fluffy butter.  Mix well.

Use the back of a spoon to break the chocolate bar into pieces.  Drop a spoonful of the dough into a greased cupcake pan.   Top with a small piece of chocolate.  Cover with dough until 3/4 full.  Keep going till you’re out of dough.  Bake for 15 minutes until the edges are golden brown and the center is set.

As soon as they are done baking (I didn’t even pull them completely out of the oven), place marshmallows on top and put them under the broiler for just under a minute or until they are nice and toasty!  A note on the marshmallows: I was concerned that just placing the one mallow on top wouldn’t fill the graham cup like I wanted so I cut them (with kitchen shears) in half and placed three on top of each.  They turned out looking a bit like flowers, which was a pleasant surprise.

Pull them out of the oven and place on a wire rack to cool.  I added another piece of chocolate to the center of the “flower” as a garnish.  Once they are completely cool, dip the bottom in some more chocolate!  Allow the chocolate to set on a wire rack.

This recipe yields 18 delicious S’More Cups.   It’s a multi-step process, I know.  But trust me, TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!

These were gone so quickly that I only got to eat one!
