S’mores Martini

Since we’ve already trashed this week by starting out with beer and donuts on Monday, let’s just keep going with some S’mores Martinis and just call it booze week.  You dig?

Peach Ale Peaches and Cream Donuts

Peach Ale Peaches and Cream Donuts

Mondays should always start with beer and donuts. And glaze.  Lots and lots of glaze. It’s peach season after all, so shouldn’t we be living it up?  We’re putting peaches in everything over here. I know you probably have an expectation of ice cream or popsicles in just about every post coming your way because…Continue Reading

S’mores in Mason Jars

I realize that it’s still National Ice Cream Month, but it just isn’t summer in the South until you put dessert in a jar.

S'mores in Mason Jars

And yes.  I meant to capitalize South.  It’s a proper noun down here and we’re getting busy with our s’mores jars.


S'mores in Mason Jars

I know I’ve been smacking y’all in the face with some popsicles and ice cream.  I figured we all could use a break.  So I threw together some dark chocolate pudding, whipped up some marshmallow topping, broke up some graham crackers, and tossed it all together in a jar.

Down here we call that dessert.

And it’s a totally picnic worthy dessert because you put all that s’mores, dark chocolate pudding, graham crackers, and whipped marshmallow frosting in a jar.  Then you top it with chocolate bar and a perfectly toasted marshmallow.  Or a burnt one.  That’s sometimes the way I like to roll.

The cool thing is that then you can just put a lid on it!  You store it in the fridge until it’s time to go! It’s a perfect make ahead and take dessert to whatever family party or horrible family reunion you’re forced to attend.

Ingredients

    For the Dark Chocolate Pudding
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup dark cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • For the Marshmallow Topping
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1 18 ounce container of marshmallow cream
  • 24 graham cracker sheets
  • 4 Mason Jars
  • 4 regular size marshmallows
  • 1 1.55 ounce chocolate bar, broken into 4 pieces

Instructions

    For the Dark Chocolate Pudding
  1. Whisk together egg yolks and sugar in a small bowl
  2. In a medium pot, heat milk, cornstarch, and cocoa powder until warm and steamy - do not boil - remove from heat
  3. Slowly whisk 1/2 cup of the hot milk into the egg mixture and repeat until milk is reduced by half
  4. Add the egg/sugar/milk mixture back into the pot with the remaining milk and bring to a light boil, stirring constantly.
  5. Just when the bubbles begin, remove from heat, stir another 1-2 minutes
  6. Stir in vanilla and butter until butter is melted and let cool for a few minutes
  7. Place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl and pass the pudding through the strainer into a bowl - this will catch any egg pieces that may have scrambled
  8. Cover with plastic wrap so that the plastic touches the surface of the pudding to prevent a skin from forming
  9. Chill in refrigerator overnight
  10. For the Marshmallow Topping
  11. Beat butter on medium until smooth
  12. Beat in marshmallow cream and vanilla bean paste
  13. To assemble
  14. Break up 12 graham crackers and evenly distribute into 4 mason jars
  15. Evenly divide the chocolate pudding between the 4 mason jars
  16. Crumble and divide the remaining 12 graham crackers evenly on top of the pudding
  17. Evenly top with marshmallow topping
  18. Transfer marshmallows to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and toast under broiler for 1-2 minutes, rotate and toast another 30 seconds to a minute, turn again and toast for another 30 seconds to 1 minute
  19. Top s'mores with toasted marshmallow and chocolate pieces
  20. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for later
