Baked S'mores

In case you couldn't tell from my indoor s'mores recipe, I love s'mores! Who doesn't love the combination of crunchy graham, melted chocolate, and sweet marshmallow? I've wanted to take this childhood classic and turn it into something a little more 'adult'. What better way that to take those elements and bake them in a ramekin? I started by making a simple graham cracker crust and baking it into the bottom of the ramekin so that it would keep the crunchiness that I think this crucial to a good s'more. I then made a small modification to the chocolate goodness of indoor s'more and layered it on top of the graham crust. The last part is a generous topping of marshmallow fluff. Pop that under the broiler and it creates a crisp shell very similar to the crunch of a creme brulee, and then the smooth fluff and chocolate are all melty underneath. My husband loved these, and I'll be making them again for Christmas Eve dessert!


 
 
 
Ingredients- Yields 3 servings

-2 tablespoons butter, melted
-5 full graham crackers, crushed
-1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
-2 tablespoons half and half
-2 tablespoons cocoa
-1 tablespoon powdered sugar
-1 teaspoon sugar
-marshmallow fluff
 
1. In a small bowl, combine the crushed graham cracker and melted butter. Spoon into 3 ramekins and press down firmly to form crust. Bake in 400 degree oven 6 minutes.
 
2. In a small sauce pot, melt chocolate chips and half and half. Remove from heat and add the cocoa, powdered sugar, and sugar. Spoon over graham cracker crust and top generously with fluff, you'll want the fluff to cover the entire top.
 
3. Place under broiler for 5-6 minutes, until the top of the fluff is browned. Garnish with a few chocolate chips or crushed graham cracker.
