S'mores Bites

These were the perfect little treat to bring to a cookout when I knew everyone would be full after dinner, but couldn't pass up something sweet!  They were so easy to make and so quick and tasted just like a bite-sized s'more!  Make sure you make the full 24, they went quickly and most people will want at least 2!

Baked Bite Size S'mores
yields 24

7  whole graham crackers (1 cup finely crushed)
1/4 cup powdered sugar
6 tablespoons butter, melted
4 bars (1.55 oz each) milk chocolate candy, divided
12 large marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Place graham crackers into a large resealable plastic bag.  Finely crush into crumbs (I used a rolling pin).  Combine graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and butter in a small bowl.  Place 1 tablespoon of crumb mixture in each cup of a mini muffin pan.  Press crumbs to form shallow cups.  Bake 4-5 minutes or until edges are bubbling. 
Meanwhile, break two of the candy bars into rectangles.  Remove pan from oven; place one rectangle into each cup.  Cut marshmallows in half crosswise using shears dipped in cold water.  Place one marshmallow half, cut-side down, into each cup.  Return to oven 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows are slightly softened.
Remove pans from oven to cooling rack; cool 15 minutes. Carefully remove cups from pan. Cool completely.

Break remaining candy bars and place in small microwavable bowl. Microwave on high 30 seconds to 1 minute or until melted and smooth, stirring every 15 seconds.  Dip the top of each marshmallow in melted chocolate.  Turn top-side up and let stand 40 to 60 minutes or until set.
