Smores Dessert Shooters

Updated on August 9, 2013

Ready for a very special dessert - try a Smore Dessert Shooter!

It doesn't have to be a summer evening to sit beside a campfire and serve up some delicious Smores Dessert Shooters. Less messy than their traditional counterparts, Smore Dessert Shooters are just right to follow a filling meal of hotdogs and hamburgers.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Dessert Shooter craze, these desserts are served in smaller sized glasses, usually from 2 ounces to 5 ounces and are just right to satisfy even the toughest sweet tooth after a filling dinner.

Unlike traditional S'mores which are handheld, I'm going to teach you how to create this delicious dessert in a different presentation - they're mini desserts served in smaller glasses (4 ounces or so) or, for the tiniest mini desserts, serve these delicious dessert shooters in shot glasses. But, beware, your diners might want 'smore.'

Come visit my new website DessertShooters.com.

If you prefer the traditional s'mores, check out my friend Virginia's lens Smore's makers.

These dessert shooter glasses are just right for Smore Dessert Shooters

Note: do not use plastic dessert shooter glasses for these desserts as they will melt when you toast the marshmallows! Glass dessert shooter containers only!

There festive dessert shooters are as much fun to put together as they are to eat (not really but it sounded good).

  • Prep time: 5 min
  • Ready in: 5 min
  • Yields: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 Hershey's chocolate bar melted
  • 8 squares Hershey's chocolate bar
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 T melted butter
  • 8 large marshmallows
  • 8 small marshmallows

Instructions

  1. Mix the graham crackers and butter together. Pat 2 T in the bottom of each dessert shooter glass. Note: if you're using a long, narrow glass, use a demitasse spoon to pat crumbs into the bottom.
  2. Add in 1 T of the melted chocolate bar. Add in 2 small marshmallows and 2 squares of the chocolate bar.
  3. Repeat layer with graham crackers and melted chocolate.
  4. Top with 2 large marshmallows and use a small culinary blow torch to quickly brown the top marshmallows. Top with another piece of the Hershey's chocolate bar for garnish.
  5. Sprinkle top with graham cracker crumbs and serve with a glass of ice cold milk.
  6. For an interesting variation, add a small amount of vanilla ice cream to the layers.

      Yum! S'mores are so fun to eat, but they are sooo messy! I love your idea of eating a s'more in a glass so much better!

      I'll never think of S'mores the same way after experiencing this mind and stomach expanding lens. Gourmet marshmallows. Wow. Who knew? I want to try some of those mocha flavored marshmallows in my first S'more shooter. Of course, what I'm really looking forward to is torching the top of this particular dessert shooter. Sounds like a lot of fun. Who needs a campfire when you can shoot flames with a culinary torch right in your very own kitchen. Perhaps we should add a fire extinguisher to the list of recipe items. You think?

      Awesome idea. But where's the picture!? I was drooling by the end of the recipe, but I can't see what one looks like. I'd just make one myself but I'm sitting here at work!

      Thanks for the idea, great lens!

      Sitting around roasting marshmallows (because smores just aren't quite right unless the marshmallows are roasted)... Blessed!

      S'mores makes me think of camping as a Girl Scout. I never knew that you could make dessert shooters out of them!

      My fondest memory involving S'mores is sitting outside after dark with the kids making S'mores talking giggling and having the time of our lives together.

      This brings back some really fond memories, thank you.

      Every summer, in the cottage, our neighbors bring the s`mores essentials and the kids make them around the camp fire.

      @lasertek lm: Lasertek: I never even think of kids as I didn't breed (I have 6 dogs instead...)! Good idea though - there's gotta be something they can do to help (not the blow torch part!).

      It would be nice to let the kids be involved. They will definitely enjoy making their own shooter.

      I think it was a camping trip to Mammoth Cave I took with my Little Sister and a bunch of people in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program about 20 years ago. Lots of those kids had never been camping before and we had some very funny adventures. Thanks for the memories! These dessert shooters are sure to bring back many fond memories for folks!

      Since moving here to Arizona (where it is HOT), I went with 2 grandkids to Bass Pro Shop one hot summer day. They were serving S'mores out front when we left. What a hot yummy mess! Your S'mores in a cup sound great and much less messy!

      I want to be in your kitchen while you experiment with all of these things. SMILE! Not only would it be humorous, but eating the "oops" could be fun. SMILE!
