Recipe: Easy Bake Minty S'mores

Time for another simple and rare recipe from The Chocolate Cult: Easy Bake Minty S'mores. August is National S'mores Month so before we leave this wonderfully tasty month behind I had an idea that I wanted to share with you all. It involves only three ingredients, a baking pan, and your oven. This is so easy that your children can help you with it and you can make quickly to satisfy your craving for chocolate, mint, graham crackers, and marshmallows. Each two sided cracker creation has 218 calories in it so these are not really a low-calorie treat but they sure are delicious. Ready for the recipe?

Ingredients: (per treat)

2 square graham crackers

1 1.4oz York Peppermint Patty

9 miniature marshmallows

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2. Line baking dish with aluminum foil. Determine what size of dish you want based on how many treats you want to make. 1/2 of the square crackers need to be able to sit flat on the bottom of the pan on top of the foil for easier cleanup and removal. I picked a pan that allowed a lot of space so I could show you what I was doing but I could have put up to 12 crackers in this pan.

3. Lay 1/2 of the crackers flat on top of the foil, leave a bit of space between them in case the marshmallows bake out a bit. Align the crackers so that the breaklines are facing the same direction and note that for the top layer of crackers.

4. Place 9 mini marshmallows on top of each of these crackers. Make sure you set these with a flat side on the cracker and the other flat facing up so that nothing rolls around. You can use more or less depending on your taste.

5. Unwrap then place one 1.4oz York Peppermint Patty on top of your marshmallows. I placed these topside downward so that the top cracker would have a flatter edge.

6. Top each treat with another graham cracker square aligning it with the first layer. This will make eating the treats less of a crumbly experience.

7. Carefully move your baking pan into the oven and bake for 3-5 minutes. With my oven, I needed 5 minutes but ovens vary so just watch the treats. If you see the white minty filling along the edges of the peppermint patty it is time to remove them from the oven.




8. Remove pan from oven and remove treats to awaiting plates. You'll be tempted to eat these right away as you would the campfire treat but please wait at least 5 minutes because these will be very hot and the fats and peppermint can burn your mouth.


My family loved, loved, loved these. They were easily to make and the foil made clean up so quick.

Did you enjoy S'mores this month? How did you make them?
