S'More Please!

My son's preschool teacher made these for our class when the kids performed all of the songs they've learned this year. The treat was such a hit that the request for the recipe was overwhelming and we found the following printed out in our kid's cubbies the next day! Enjoy!

S'More Cups

7 whole graham crackers (about 1 cup crushed)
1/4 cup powdered sugar
12 large marshmallows
6 T. butter (melted)
4 Hershey bars (divided)

*Preheat oven 350 degrees F. Finely crush graham crackers. Combine graham crackers, melted butter and powdered sugar. Place a teaspoon of the mixture into mini muffin pan. Press the mixture down into the pan. Bake 4-5 minutes.
*Meanwhile, break apart two of the candy bars into rectangles.
*Remove pan from oven; place one rectangle of chocolate into each cup.
*Cut marshmallows in half with kitchen shears run under cold water to prevent from sticking. Place one half (cut side down) into each cup. Return to oven 1-2 minutes.
*Remove from oven and place on cooling rack. Cool 15 minutes, carefully remove from tin, return to rack to cool completely.
*Break apart remaining candy bars, place into microwave bowl. Microwave on high until melted and smooth (20 seconds at a time) or melt in double boiler. Dip top of marshmallow in melted chocolate.
*Turn top-side up and let stand 1 hour or until set.

Makes 24 cups.

Thank You for the Reminder, RLS

I came across a quote today that was the encouragement I needed to hear at the end of a very, very long mommy day. Simple, concise and oh so true. I'll be printing it out and taping it to some wall in my house (or maybe multiple)!

"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant."
