Do you ever have days when you just crave something sweet and decadent?
Okay, that’s a really bad question. But sometimes sweet and decadent can be a sweet and slippery slope to an empty bag of Oreos. Don’t ask, don’t ask…
This week I have been craving S’mores and came across a great recipe on Pinterest that had me craving them even more. But I started a new eating plan last week and this recipe could get me into trouble. Granted, sweet and delicious trouble. So I decided to modify it so it would satisy my S’mores craving while not sending me down a sugary rabbit hole.
The mission was a success! My recipe for Mini S’mores Tarts is easy- only 4 ingredients!- and quick to assemble. Before long, you will be sitting down to a warm tart of awesomeness.
Mini S’mores Tarts
1 6-pack of graham cracker tarts
2 Hershey’s milk chocolate bars- king size (2.6 ounce each)
1/3 cup of creamy peanut butter
2/3 cup of marshmallow creme
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place tarts on parchment lined cookie sheet. Break chocolate bar, placing 4 chocolate pieces into each tart. Melt peanut butter in microwave for 20 seconds (my microwave is a high-wattage, so I did it at 60% power). Drizzle peanut butter on top of chocolate (about one tablespoon per tart). Spread marshmallow creme onto each tart. No need to worry about covering tart completely with creme- it will spread as it melts in oven.
Place cookie sheet into oven. Cook for 20 minutes. To be safe, check it after 10 and 15 minutes to check “doneness” of marshmallow creme- don’t want it too dark!
Once done, let tarts cool for at least 20 minutes. You can go ahead and eat them at this point, but prepare for some gooeyness (is that ever a bad thing?).
4 ingredients. 10 minutes of prep work. 20 minutes cooking time. I mean, seriously, simplicity at its ooey gooey best. Enjoy!
