You will LOVE this dark chocolate sea salt smores cups dessert recipe. No need to sit around the campfire, you can make these s’mores in your oven any time of year!
Chocolate. Graham crackers. Marshmallows.
S’mores have long been a summer favorite dessert, there’s nothing like roasting marshmallows over a campfire and sandwiching them between two graham crackers. I really hope we get the chance to go camping this year, but until then, we can make s’mores right at home!
We decided to try making some s’mores at home, but with a little twist. If you’re having a summer get together, or just lounging by the pool, these individual dark chocolate sea salt s’mores cups are perfect! I got the idea of oven roasting marshmallows from this peanut butter s’mores pie recipe, I love dark chocolate and I thought it would be great to try out on a s’more. This dark chocolate sea salt smores cups dessert recipe has bite-sized portions, which are easy to make in your cupcake pan. Perfect for little fingers, and for entertaining – try them out!
Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Smores Cups Dessert Recipe
makes (12) s’mores cups
- 2 – 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 1/8 cup brown sugar
- 12 large marshmallows
- 12 Ghirardelli® Sea Salt Soiree squares
Pre-heat your oven to 325 degrees. Make sure your graham crackers are finely crushed, you can use a food processor, or actually buy them pre-ground. In a large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, butter and brown sugar.
In a 12-cup cupcake pan, firmly press mixture into each cup, leaving a space in the center. I used the bottom of a shot glass to make sure it was packed tight.
Bake at 325 degrees for 10 minutes, remove pan from the oven and immediately turn on your broiler. Add first one piece of Ghirardelli® chocolate, then one marshmallow to the center of each cup.
Place pan on top rack in the oven and broil the marshmallow tops until brown and melted. Be careful, and make sure you WATCH this step as they broil. It tends to happen fast and if you walk away, they will probably burn. Experience, y’all.
Give them a bit of time to cool, but not too long, these are the best while still hot. As soon as you can touch them, gently wiggle each one out of each cup with a butter knife and try it. OH MAN. This smores cups dessert recipe is easy and oh so GOOD!
I absolutely love how this s’mores dessert turned out, the dark chocolate gives it a nice, rich taste. Note, there are almonds in the Ghirardelli® Sea Salt Soiree chocolates, so feel free to switch the chocolate for allergen purposes. Enjoy your family time, indulge and have a wonderful summer!
