S’mores Bites – Two Ways

02.16.2012

With a Kiss…

or with a Rolo, take your pick!

Seriously, dessert doesn’t get any easier than this!  This definitely has got to be one of my easiest recipes yet, and cutest =).  They can be made in 5 minutes or less and they taste just like a S’more, or upgraded S’more if you use Rolo’s.  These are the perfect way to be able to enjoy a S’more in the comfort of your home even in the winter time.  How fun would these be for a party?  They’d be sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.  I also tried these with Saltine Crackers and they were delish, they gave them that slightly salty with sweet tastiness.

For best results just be sure to eat them right after toasting to get that gooey, toasted, authentic S’mores goodness.

S’mores Bites – Two Ways

Yield: 12

S’mores Bites – Two Ways

Ingredients

  • 6 graham cracker sheets*, or 12 Saltine or Ritz Crackers
  • 6 large marshmallows
  • 12 Hershey's Kisses or Rolos, unwrapped

Directions

  • Break graham cracker sheets in half, then cut each half into a circle using a 2 1/4" circle fondant cutter or metal cookie cutter (if using Saltine or Ritz Crackers no cutting needed). Using clean scissors cut each marshmallow into 2 halves. Heat oven to Low Broil and place oven rack two levels below broiler. Align graham crackers in the center of a cookie sheet about 1/2" apart from each other (you want them all to be near the center so they are directly under the broiler and cook more evenly at the same time). Top each graham cracker with a marshmallow with the cut/sticky side down. Place marshmallow topped graham crackers under broiler (turn oven light on if you have one) DON'T WALK AWAY, watch them closely as they will toast quickly, allow to toast until golden rotating pan with oven mitt as needed (I left the oven door open the entire time to watch them and rotate, just be careful). Once golden immediately remove from oven, place 1 Kiss or Rolo in the center of each toasted marshmallow and gently press down. For best results serve warm, just like a real S'more.
  • Note: you could easily double this recipe but I wouldn't recommend toasting more than 12 at a time for more even toasting.

Notes

*I used a package of graham crackers that had been open for a couple of days, I don't know if this will make a difference to help with easier cutting and less breakage or not. The crackers seem to soften slightly when you do this, just thought I better mention it.

  • Lisa: Oh my gosh! So easy and so good. We didn’t have any graham crackers but we DID have some Spongebob Square Pants individual graham cracker bites so…..I used the large, not jumbo marshmallows and a hershey bar (also b/c I didn’t have jumbos, kisses or rolos) and it was FABULOUS!!!

    I made it in the toaster oven so I could have an easier time w/ the toasting and O!M!G! A rousing success!!!! I will make these little treats again. February 20, 2012 at 8:03am Reply

  • Anonymous: what if you used a chocolate coated (on one side) shortbread cookie and put the chocolate side up when making them. We always use this type of cookie when we make smores by the campfire instead of graham crackers and a piece of a chocolate bar. My sister uses choclate coated (also on one side) peanut butter cookies instead of the shortbread ones March 25, 2012 at 5:05pm Reply

  • Anonymous: We always make our smores with Reese’s peanut butter cups instead of just chocolate, so this would work with the mini peanut butter cups. Yum! April 17, 2012 at 7:00pm Reply

  • Anonymous: I use chocolate frosting its softer right away instead of the hard hersheys bar. You can also microwave the marshmallows for about 20 sec to make at home inside. September 20, 2012 at 3:12pm Reply

  • Anonymous: Made these last minute for a boy scout event. They were a hit and so easy to make. Used a small biscuit cutter on the crackers. Cut beautifully even though the crackers were fresh. Scraped the leftover bits into a baggie and popped them into the freezer to save for a future graham cracker pie crust! December 13, 2012 at 3:11pm Reply

  • Catherine: I don’t know if you know this, but today, Aug 30, is National Toasted Marshmallow Day! We had company for dinner, and I knew I wanted to do a toasted marshmallow dessert (sans fire… we live on a military installation, and we’re not allowed to have open fires), so of course I came straight to your blog. :) And OF COURSE this was a huge hit with all 5 kids (ages 5 and under) and all 4 adults! So cute, so simple, so delicious. Thanks!! August 30, 2013 at 10:18pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I don’t think I’d recommend storing them that long. They’d probably become stale and taste different after that long. Sorry. January 21, 2014 at 6:18pm Reply

  • Erin: Do the S’more Bites still taste good if they are room temperature? August 19, 2014 at 8:55pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes, jut not as good ones they cool because the marshmallow becomes chewy instead of stretchy gooey soft. August 19, 2014 at 10:19pm Reply
