S'mores bites

S'mores is a classic American treat. It's the trinity of gooey toasted marshmallow, melted chocolate and crunchy graham cracker. This recipe is probably the easiest dessert to make. No handheld mixer or torch needed! The only challenge with this is making sure all the graham crackers fit in the baking sheet.

There are only a few ingredients needed to make this so make sure you are using the best and highest quality out there.

Here's what you need:

about 16 graham crackers
1 stick (1/2 cup) sweet cream butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of salt
approximately 4 cups of mini marshmallows
1 1/4 cups mixture of chocolate chips ( I used 1 cup choco chip and 1/4 white chocolate)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.  Line baking sheet with 2 overlapping sheets of foil. Arrange graham crackers tightly on a single layer. Cut the crackers into 2 to fill up the edges. Set aside.

3. Melt butter and brown sugar over medium heat. Bring to a boil while stirring occasionally. Add a pinch of salt. Mix until sugar is dissolved, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat and slowly add vanilla extract. It will sizzle a little bit so don't worry.

4. Spoon the caramel mixture over the graham crackers evenly. Sprinkle marshmallows on a single layer and bake for about 8 minutes until they are puffed and starting to brown.

5. Remove from the oven and sprinkle your chocolates. Let it melt over the marshmallows for about 5 minutes. Run a toothpick over them to create a pattern. Bring out your artistic side!  Let it rest for 20 minutes until the chocolates are set.

6. Cover baking sheet with foil and freeze for about a hour. Remove the slab from the sheet and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into 2 inch squares and refrigerate. It should last about 4-5 days on your fridge


7. Enjoy it chilled!
