baby s’mores

Is it just me or s’mores everywhere these days? I know that they are a quintessential summer snack, but this year they seem to be in your face everywhere.

What’s a girl to do when there are s’mores everywhere?

Make them. Sorta.  I made a graham cracker crust, chocolate ganache filling and a toasted marshmallow topping.  Yes, I finally found a use for myganache. See?! It’s good to have a big bowl of chocolate in your fridge,  at all times. :)

Now, these really are easy, and- if you don’t have ganache, you could easily use a  bit of chocolate instead.

The crust was a basic graham cracker crust:

Now, I took this pic on purpose of my hand… why? Well! Remember last week- when I went to do a bit of filming for Moovision? The director wanted us to all get manicures. (sweet!) So, we got the shellac kind- that’s supposed to last 3 weeks. Guess what? One week down- not a chip! Yay!

I need to do more film-work- just for the  manicures. Oh yes, in case you’re wondering- after our fancy-pant manicures, we went out for pizza and beer. Because we’re butch like that. ;)

So, I baked up my baby crusts,

topped em with some chocolate:

and….

Now- when you go to toast em. Seriously, 20 seconds max under the oven broiler. These babies tan faster than piece of white bread in a fire.

See? Told you!

  1. What cute, simple, and yummy-looking treats! I agree with you, s’mores have been popping up everywhere and in so many different variations! Gotta love it though :)

  2. OH my….I am not big on smores at ALL but these…..oh yeah, I must make these. Preferably while still on vacation before I get strict with my eating again. :)

    I could take or leave reg graham crackers, but made a graham cracker crust last night and boy was it tasty!! Mmmmm…….

  3. Well…. I was skeptical about s’mores without the campfire. I’m a huge proponent of perfectly-roasted marshmallows, and exquisitely melted chocolate on a graham cracker by the fire. However… these look adorable and delicious! This might be the solution for midwinter s’mores cravings!

  4. Oh my goodness, those look wonderful. I love the photos as well–very stylish. Makes all the difference when posting on a food blog. Can’t wait to try them. Thanks!

  5. what a fantastic idea…and a good way to make something quick and easy when you have people stopping by or that show up unexpectedly, too.

  8. Is toasting the marshmallows under the broiler a necessary step or could it be made optional? Unfortunately, the broiler in my oven is currently out of commission.

  9. It’s optional, you could just top them with some marshmallow fluff, toasting them under the broiler gives them a sweet tasty flavor and a softer, gooey-er texture.

  10. These are SO cute. We were planning to go camping this weekend, but our plans have changed – so this is just the consolation treat I was looking for! (Beautiful photos, too!)

  11. Love this idea! We make s’mores around our firepit frequently during the summer, but these would be great when we’re in the mood for them in the winter! Thanks!

  12. Great recipe for bite-sized s’more treats!

    You will love the schellac–I tried it for the first time and it lasted two weeks for me without a single chip or looking dull. I did a french manicure look and my nails had grown out enough to where I needed to have it removed at the two week and one day mark. My nails were a little rough after the removal so I added a clear coat. Enjoy!

  13. Looks real good. Too bad I can’t really find graham crackers where I live. Maybe I’ll have to substitute that part of the recipe.

  14. These look amazing!! I am thinking of making them in 2 weeks for my son/daughter’s joint camping-themed b’day party at an indoor play place…do you happen to know if I can make them the day before, place them in a tightly covered Tupperware overnight then have them be fresh for the following day’s party???

  15. Wow, these look great. This would be great for a small get together, with an evening cup of coffee, it would be awesome.
