Most of us go camping just for the s'mores, but why not make them at home? This easy, yummy treat is perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up that comes in a bite-size treat.

What you'll need:

  • 8 graham crackers
  • A baggie
  • 6 tablespoons of butter
  • 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
  • Mini marshmallows
  • 12 mini-size candy bars
  • A muffin tin
  • An oven

Why it's great:

  • It captures that family-fun camping feel, but you don't need a tent or a kerosene lantern.
  • It's an easy treat for all ages and only takes a few minutes.
  • S'mores lead to camping stories, which lead to campfire ghost stories and silly songs. Let each recipe spark a story.
  • If you're having a tough day, you know that chocolate and marshmallow might make it just a bit better.

How to do it:

  • Place your 8 graham crackers in a baggie and crush them with your hands or roll with a can from your pantry, then add the confectioner's sugar and mix it in the baggie with your hands. Place the crushed graham cracker mix in the muffin tin (I use a mini-muffin tin for bite-size treats). Preheat your oven to 350.
  • Melt the 6 tablespoons of butter in the microwave in a small cup and drizzle over the crushed graham crackers. Place in oven for 4 minutes.
  • Top each graham cracker-filled muffin with 2 to 4 mini marshmallows, or cut the larger size marshmallows in half with a knife or kitchen shears.
  • Return to oven until marshmallows have softened.
  • Meanwhile, open the 12 mini chocolate bars and microwave until melted.
  • Drizzle over graham crackers and marshmallows and let cool.
  • These refrigerate for up to a month. Pop in microwave for 15 seconds to get them nice and melted.
