Recipe: Indoor s'mores sundaes
Posted May 1, 2014
The weather is warming up and this is a great recipe to cool down! We love to make s'mores in our studios! Our Lil’ Chefs have made them so many different ways, from s'mores dessert pizzas to s'mores pancakes! However this one has become my favorite!
This recipe is easy to make and you can make a batch ahead of time and leave them in the freezer and complete the last few steps just before serving. We recently made these at my daughter’s 12th birthday party and they were met with rave reviews!
Indoor S'mores Sundaes
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 5 whole graham crackers)
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 scoops vanilla ice cream
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
Quick Chocolate Sauce (or use Hershey’s chocolate syrup)
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons whole milk
For the graham cracker crust: Mix the graham cracker crumbs, butter, sugar, cinnamon and a sprinkle of salt together in a bowl. Firmly press the crust into muffin tins to make individual crusts. Top each crust with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Press the mini marshmallows into the ice cream, covering the scoop completely. You will have 4 s'more "domes."
Freeze at least one hour.
For the quick chocolate sauce: Immediately before serving, heat the broiler to low. Toss the chocolate chips with the milk in a ramekin or small bowl and microwave 30 seconds, stir until smooth and set aside. Place the s'more domes under the broiler until marshmallows brown, about 30 seconds. Watch them constantly as they burn easily. Place each s'more on a plate and drizzle with the chocolate sauce.
