Super Simple S’mores Bites

These are so easy, we can’t consider this a “recipe.”  Instead, let’s call these “directions.” Super simple directions. Like, you can train your kids to make these themselves directions.

But dang, these things are good.

Last Saturday Kiddo celebrated his last soccer match of the season with a party at the Springs. We were supposed to bring our own picnic, but since my hubby is the assistant coach, I thought it would be nice to bring an extra treat for the team.

Thursday night after work I combed through Pinterest for something super simple to make. Note: I did not write “bake.” I haven’t been getting home until nearly eleven p.m. and my Saturday morning was booked. Oh, and I needed to have all ingredients on hand. No time to hit the store.

Complicated was out — but cute was in.

I found several versions of these adorable little dudes. Call them S’mores Bites, S’mores Cookies, S’mores Treats—I call them delish.  And so did everyone at the party.

Seriously, these things were a hit. I stuck them on a recycled catering tray. (NEVER throw a catering tray away. I reuse them for everything.) The ooohs and ahhhs hit immediately. The kids hovered around the tray, begging me to let them attack. Three dozen treats disappeared in two minutes. I barely snagged one.

All the parents asked me where I bought them. {giggle giggle} 

Total crowd pleaser. These baby’s are my new potluck go-to.

They are simple enough to make for  an after school snack or late night attach of the munchies. THREE ingredients. I happened to have caramel-filled Hershey’s Kisses in my freezer (leftover from some Christmas project, I think) and they worked perfectly, adding an extra layer of oozy-gooeyness to each bit. Heaven.

I also just so happened to have a biscuit cutter on hand to make the rounds. No idea why. I’ve never made or intend to make a biscuit from scratch. Ever. Cutting the graham crackers into rounds is not necessary (especially if you’re making these for a quick snack) but it does make them appear a bit more professional. Just in case you want to impress the other soccer moms or your kid’s teacher.

Kiddo helped make the first batch (without complaints!) and could have done the whole bit by himself. You can make four or four dozen in minutes. And if you’re making a small batch, just pop them into the toaster oven—as I did just minutes ago.

Easy-peasy.

Super Simple S’mores Bites

makes 24 (but you’ll want more)

12 graham cracker sheets (or 24 digestive biscuits)
12 large marshmallows
24 unwrapped Hersey’s Kisses (the caramel-filled are PERFECT, but use any variety)

  • Using a round cookie or biscuit cutter, cut 2 rounds from each full graham cracker sheet.
  • Cut each marshmallow in half keeping the flat sides whole. (Put them in the fridge first. Makes much less sticky.)
  • Place graham crackers on cookie sheet. Top with marshmallow (cut side down).
  • Broil for about 2 minutes. Depending on how hot your oven gets, they could brown up quicker. I’d suggest checking every 30 seconds.
  • Take out of oven and immediately press a Kiss into the center. Make sure to press, because that’s what glues it all together.
  • Cool. Enjoy warm or room temp!

*I based this off directions on Classy Cooking, but there seem to be many versions of these out there.

    I thought they would crumble as well, but I've yet to break one graham cracker! My cheapo biscuit cutter worked like a charm, but I'm sure a round cookie cutter would work just as well. Or, just leave them square—they'd still taste divine :)
