Mini S’mores Cups topped with Raspberries {National S’mores Day}

I know that I normally don’t post on Saturday. But today is a cause for celebration, it is National S’mores day!  That not only demands a post but a post in honor of this famous dessert!

When we were little we use to go on camping trips every year with the “gang squad”, basically all my dad’s cop friends.  These trips were always a blast! There were 10+ adults and 10+ kiddos all on one camp site.  The dads were always doing crazy things, moms cooking up a storm and trying to clean up the mess the dads and kids made the night before.  Us kids would be running all over the place collecting sticks, climbing trees, and finding bugs. But at the end of the night, we would all settle down around the campfire and make s’mores.  It is definitely one of my favorite childhood memories.  What is your favorite S’more memory?

So, in honor of this special day and famous dessert I have joined together with some other bloggers to give you a S’more Celebration!  You can never have enough s’more recipes.

My twist on the ever popular s’more?  Mini S’mores Cups topped with fresh raspberries, they are absolutely delicious.   I actually made another batch the very next day!  Although, I must admit that the brains behind this awesome dessert was my … wait for it… HUSBAND!!!  These Mini S’mores Cups have every component of a s’more and you can taste it in every single bite. The fresh raspberry adds a nice sweet and tart flavor to the whole dessert.  These are definitely a winner in my book and will be on the menu again soon!

To get started, preheat oven to 350º. Mix 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs with 6 Tablespoons of melted butter and 1 Tablespoon of sugar.

Once chocolate is melted, scoop 1 Tablespoon of chocolate into each graham cracker cup.

Next, finish off each s’more cup with a fresh raspberry on top.
