Recipe from The First Year Blog.
- 12 large marshmallows, halved
- 7 graham crackers, crushed
- 2 milk chocolate candy bars, divided into rectangles
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 6 tablespoons butter, melted
- Preheat your oven to 350 F.
- Coat a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
- In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the crushed graham crackers, powdered sugar and butter.
- In each muffin tin cup, press the mixture into the bottom, making sure each cup has an equal portion and that the mixture completely covers the bottom of the cups.
- Bake until the edges bubble, about 4 to 5 minutes.
- Remove the pan from the oven and place a piece of chocolate into each cup, then top with a half of a marshmallow. Bake until the marshmallows are soft and gooey, about another 2 to 4 minutes.
- Use the oven broiler for 1 to 2 minutes to brown the marshmallows, if you desire. Cool for 15 minutes before serving.
