marshmallows, chocolate and crackers, need I say more?

On Halloween, Justin and I went to a party at our friend Lindsay's house. We had so much fun and let me tell you there were a lot of good goodies! One of the things that I liked were little mini s'mores. They were made from Ritz crackers, Hershey kiss's and a marshmallow on top. You cook them in the oven and voila! They were so yummy. I think I ate most of them. I heard some one say that she should try making it more of like a layered desert. So tonight I did! Here are the pictures I took. I actually remembered to take pictures at each step.

Step 1: crumble Ritz crackers and place in the bottom of dish. I used a glass bowl, but you could use anything I suppose. Also, I used the new brown sugar cinnamon crackers, but again you could use which ever kind you want. I melted some butter and stirred it around to make it a little more crust like.

Step 2: top the cracker crust with chocolate chips. My new favorite chocolate chips are Hershey's brand. I think they taste better then other brands, but any brand will do.

Step 3: top with marshmallows. I used the big ones because that is what I had, but you could probably use small ones too. Bake in the oven at 350 for about 7 minutes, then turn on your broiler to HI for about 3 minutes. I would check on it after about 1 1/2 minutes under the broiler to make sure it doesn't get too done on top. I like mine browned though, so I let it go the whole 3 minutes.

Here are the final product pictures! It turned out so yummy! Justin agreed that this was a good desert. On a scale of 1-10 he rated it at a 7, because the marshmallows do stick to the eating utensil.
By the way none of the above mentioned brands have paid me to talk about there products, although I wouldn't mind if they did ;) For more chocolaty goodies go to Stop and Smell the Chocolates
