Total Time: 26 minutes

Serves: 18

  • 60 miniature marshmallows

  • 1/3 cup of powdered sugar

Muffins in the Tins

Step 1- Prepare a plastic bag and put graham biscuits into it. Start crushing them into crumbs. In a large bowl, combine graham biscuit crumbs, melted butter, and powdered sugar together until they are evenly mixed.

Step 2- Prepare small muffin tins and press the crumb mixture into each one to form a cup. After that, put the crusts into the oven and bake from 3 to 4 minutes until the edges are bubbling and take them out the oven.

Step 3- Place a square piece of chocolate onto each crust, and top with 4 or 5 miniature marshmallows. Return them to the oven and bake at 350 degree Fahrenheit for another 1 or 2 minutes until the marshmallows are just slightly softened, and become barely tan. Be careful at this step or you may overcook the marshmallows and chocolate.

Step 4- Remove the cups from the oven and allow them to cool down to room temperature (about 5 minutes). Note that the cups may be a little bit crumble, but that is normal.

Step 5- Add the remaining chocolate bars in a bowl and melt them in the oven for 1 or 2 minutes until the liquid is smooth. Stir it well and pour it onto the top of each cup.

Step 6- Wait for the chocolate liquid to set and enjoy your delicious S’Mores Cups.
