Pinterest is all the rage for creativity…..I love a quick and easy recipe that’s a spin of an old fave. Here’s my first Pinterest recipe trial & it’s a good one! The recipe originated from here and I altered it just a tad, see below
So Simple & So Good!
1 c finely crushed graham crackers
1/4 c powdered sugar
6 T melted butter
4 bars (1.55 oz) milk chocolate candy divided
(I used a bag of ghirardelli dark chocolate chips instead, a partial bag :))
12 large marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place graham crackers into a large resealable plastic bag. Finely crush into crumbs. Combine graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and butter in a small bowl.
Place 1 tablespoon of crumb mixture in each cup of a mini muffin pan. Press crumbs to form shallow cups. Bake 4-5 minutes or until edges are bubbling. Meanwhile, break two of the candy bars into rectangles (or open the bag of choc. chips). Remove pan from oven; place one rectangle into each cup (or 5-7 choc. chips).
Cut marshmallows in half crosswise using shears dipped in cold water. Place one marshmallow half, cut-side down, into each cup. Return to oven 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows are slightly softened. Remove pans from oven to cooling rack; cool 15 minutes. Carefully remove cups from pan. Cool completely.
Break remaining candy bars (or pour in a handful of choc. chips) and place in small microwavable bowl. Microwave on high 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring every 20 seconds. Dip the top of each marshmallow in melted chocolate. Turn top-side up and let stand 40 to 60 minutes or until set. Makes 24 cups.
Note: Store the cups in a single layer in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Freezing is not recommended.
For a richer chocolate flavor, substitute dark chocolate candy bars (or choc. chips) for the milk chocolate.
Each cup has 100 calories and 6 g fat.
This recipe was hit and I really want to make it again! Next time instead of dipping the tarts into chocolate, I’m going to purchase a mini-torch and brulee the tops of the marshmallows a bit to give them a “roasted on a fire” affect…can’t wait!!!
