These S’mores Cups are simple, sweet, bites of chocolate ganache and toasted marshmallow, in a sugar cookie crust.
S’mores are one of my favorite dessert. I’m not gonna turn down a piece of pie or a brownie but if there is something that says s’mores on the menu I have to try it. Chocolate, toasted marshmallows and graham crackers all smooshed together, yum! I love the graham cracker part of the s’mores but these days you see people sandwiching the toasted marshmallow and chocolate between all sorts of things. I think the most drool-worthy one I saw on Pinterest the other day was a big marshmallow and oozing melted chocolate sandwiched between two chocolate chip cookies. Move over graham crackers you have some competition! Note: This post contains affiliate links. This means if you click on a link and purchase something we may be compensated.
August 10th is National S’mores Day, and since I am such a fan I can’t let the day slip by without properly celebrating my love of all things s’mores. Last year we made these delicious s’mores brownies to celebrate S’mores Day. They were perfectly ooey gooey, with the graham crackers baked right into the brownies and marshmallow fluff swirled into the brownie mix. I wasn’t sure we could do better this year.
Then we made these. I think I may have died and went to heaven! These little bites of chocolately, marshmallow-y, goodness are the perfect way to celebrate S’mores day.
We stepped up our game using mini sugar cookie cups, like the ones we made for our Lime Cheesecake Cups, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Cups, and filling them with dark chocolate ganache. To get the perfect cup shape use a pastry tamper. For me the choice to use dark chocolate rather than milk chocolate raised them to the next level. They are the grown-up version of the dessert we’ve all loved since we were kids.
We cut large marshmallows in half and put one half on top of each cookie cup, covering the ganache. Then we used a brulee torch to toast the marshmallow. I think that might have been our favorite part. Forget campfires I’m using a torch for all of my marshmallow toasting needs from now on!
