[National S'mores Day Blog Hop] Frozen S'mores Cups

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

Happy National S'mores Day! I'll be honest, before Whitney emailed me about this holiday, I had no idea that it even existed... which is a great shame! Luckily she educated me and this blog hop was born. I'm super excited to share one of my new favorite s'mores recipes with you today : frozen s'mores cups!


It was actually really hard to narrow it down to which recipe I wanted to make and share because there are SO MANY good ones. In fact, I've already shared one of my very favorite s'mores recipes EVER here (s'mores brownies!).


I thought about sharing that recipe again because it is seriously THAT GOOD, but I decided to share something new instead. I searched and searched and searched Pinterest and I narrowed it down to s'mores cookie bars, s'mores cinnamon rolls, s'mores dip, and the frozen s'mores cups. The frozen s'mores cups ended up winning and I'd like to share that recipe with you today.

Original Recipe from Creations by Kara : found here (and is printable!)

Ingredients
Crust:
14 whole graham crackers (about 1 1/2 cups crumbs)
1/2 cup melted butter
Layer 1:
1/2 cup chopped chocolate (milk or semi-sweet)
1/4 cup cream
Layer 2:
1 cup marshmallow creme
Layer 3:
1 1/3 cups milk
1/2 cup instant chocolate pudding mix
Layer 4:
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Chocolate chips for garnish (optional)

Instructions
1. For crust, finely crush the graham crackers to make about 1 1/2 cups crumbs. Add the melted butter mix well. Set aside about 3 tablespoons for garnish. Press remaining crumbs into the bottoms and up the sides of 12 muffin cups. Place in the freezer.







2. Melt the 1/2 cup chocolate and the 1/4 cup cream in a glass bowl in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds till smooth. Cool slightly, then divide between the 12 crusts. Freeze for 15-20 minutes or till set.



3. Spread about 1 tablespoon of marshmallow cream on top of each chocolate layer.
Whisk together the milk and chocolate pudding mix till smooth; pour over the marshmallow creme. Freeze for 2-3 hours, or till firm.







4. Remove from freezer about 10 minutes before serving. Use the edge of a plastic knife to loosen the cups, then they should just pop out. If you need to, you can tip the pan sideways and run hot water over the bottom to loosen them.

5. Just before serving, whip the cream till soft peaks form. Add the vanilla and powdered sugar and continue beating till stiff peaks form. Pipe onto the frozen cups. Garnish with the reserved crumbs and chocolate chips.





A couple things to note :
- I didn't make my own whip cream. I used store bought.
- I completely forgot to add the graham cracker sprinkles on top before taking a picture. But don't make the same mistake! It really adds a lot to the flavor, so make sure you add them before you eat them!
- I thought there could never be such a thing as too much marshmallow but... I think I might have put too much marshmallow. Mine didn't turn out nearly as pretty as the originals did, BUT they were delicious even though they were super messy.
