S’mores, short for “some mores,” is a traditional campfire confection made with graham crackers, marshmallow, and chocolate. The origin is unclear, but one recipe, named “marshmallow sandwich,” was published in a 1920s Campfire Marshmallows recipe book.
All it takes is three ingredients and about 20 minutes of your time to make these treats that would be perfect for a pajama party. But don’t forget about the adults—they would be great on a passed dessert tray with an encouragement to eat them while warm.
Here are two yummy variations of the classic campfire S’mores you can make anywhere without the campfire!
- In a food processor, pulverize 2 sleeves graham crackers (total of 18 crackers) graham crackers (I break them up before putting them in the bowl). Add 2 tbsp sugar and with motor running, add 10 tbsp melted butter.
- Spoon mixture into mini muffin tin and press on bottom and up sides to form crust.
- Bake at 400 for 5 minutes.
- Remove from oven, add a section of 2 chocolate bars to each muffin. Top with half a marshmallow.
- Cook under broiler for 1-2 minutes until golden brown.
- Break 3 chocolate bar into pieces and put in 9″ cast iron skillet or pie pan. Bake at 350 for about 5 minutes, until chocolate is melted. Stir to finish melting.
- Top with 34 or so marshmallows, arranging in co-centric circles.
- Put in broiler for 2 minutes (even marshmallows don’t expand to cover chocolate, you can bake at 350 for 2 minutes). Serve with graham crackers.
