Bite-sized desserts are a double-edged sword. On one hand, they’re really easy to eat. That makes them perfect for parties. You can grab one, pop it in your mouth, and continue mingling. On the other hand, though, they’re really easy to eat. So you have one and next thing you know, you’ve had about 15. And these Puff Pastry S’mores Bites are really easy to overeat.
Or maybe a serving size of them is six.
I made up the recipe, so I can make up the serving size, right?
Well, probably not. But it would sure make me feel a lot better about how many I ate while creating this recipe.
Personally, I liked them a lot better when they were cold. Like 100 times better. They’re okay when they’re warm. The chocolate is melty, and there’s never anything bad about melty chocolate. But when the chocolate solidified and the puff pastry cooled, it was a much different dessert. A much better dessert, according to my taste buds.
You can serve them either way, but knowing they’re great cold means you can make them ahead of time if you’re serving them at a party.
Puff Pastry S’mores Bites
What You’ll Need:
- 1 sheet puff pastry
- 72 mini marshmallows (about 1 cup)
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
What You’ll Do:
Thaw your puff pastry according to the package.
Pre-heat your oven to 350.
Cut the puff pastry into 24 equal parts.
Put each puff pastry piece into the cavity of a 24-count mini muffin pan.
Bake the puff pastry about 10 minutes. It will puff up, but that’s okay. It’s doing its job.
Remove it from the oven, then top each mini muffin cavity with three mini marshmallows. Return the pan to the oven and bake about 3 minutes.
Remove from the oven and top with a pinch of mini chocolate chips. Return the pan to the oven and bake about 2 minutes. Then, turn it on broil for just about 1 minute, until the marshmallows char.
