Mini S'mores Cups

Mini S'mores Cups
Anything with the word "mini" just sounds yummy to me!

Most s'mores recipes call for Hershey's bars but I decided to use what I had on hand. Nestle Crunch bars it was and worked beautifully! I had the snack size and broke them in half.
Preheat oven to 350. Combine graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and butter in small bowl. Spoon one tablespoon of crumb mixture in each cup of a mini cupcake pan. Press crumbs with spoon or fingers
to form shallow cups . Bake 4-5 minutes or until edges are bubbling.

Top with chocolate bar or in my case, Nestle Crunch. :)

Next, use mini marshmallows (as pictured) or regular size marshmallows and cut in half.
Return to oven 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows are just slightly softened. Remove from oven to
cooling rack; cool 15 minutes.

Aren't they cute?
You could also drizzle chocolate on top!

Ingredients:
7 whole graham crackers (1 cup finely crushed)
1/4 cup powdered sugar
6 tbsp butter, melted
4 bars milk chocolate candy, divided
12 large marshmallows

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Place graham crackers into a large resealable
plastic bag. Finely crush into crumbs. Combine graham cracker crumbs,
powdered sugar and butter in small bowl. Spoon one tablespoon of crumb
mixture in each cup of a mini cupcake pan. Press crumbs with spoon or fingers
to form shallow cups . Bake 4-5 minutes or until edges are bubbling. Meanwhile,
break two of the candy bars into rectangles. Remove pan from oven; place
one rectangle into each cup.
Cut marshmallows in half crosswise using kitchen 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 just slightly softened. Remove from oven to
cooling rack; cool 15 minutes. Carefully remove cups from pan. Cool
completely.
Break remaining candy bars and place in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave
on HIGH 1 minute-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 minutes-1 hour or until set.
