Super Cute Teddy Bear S'mores!

A few months ago I was chatting with a co-worker about ideas for a baby shower I was hosting for my sis-in-law and her first child.  Food ideas were the topic and I wanted something cute and 'mini' or bite sized.  I can't remember what led us to s'mores but we ended up dreaming up the cutest little Teddy Bear S'mores ever!

Last weekend I set out to make them and I thought I'd document the process to share here.  I'll give some tips that I figured out the hard way and I'm sure you can take them make them even better!


 


Here's what you will need:
*1 box of Teddy Grahams (or no name version, aka Honey Crunchy Cubs, I also found penguin graham crackers, or of course you could use classic "Amimal Crackers")

1 Bag Mini Marshmallows (I chose the pastel multi-coloured bag - I was going to pick out just the pink ones but decided to go for the rainbow)

1 can of Chocolate Icing (You could also use Nutella, or make your own).  I didn't even use 1/2 of the can of icing....I may even be eating it right out of the can with a spoon this very minute....

Baking Sheet

Parchment Paper

Butter Knife

*if you want to make a large batch I would buy 2 boxes to account for the broken ones - It`s amazing how many are missing 1 if not 2 paws...or ears...


How To:

Place parchment paper on your baking sheet.

Spread your icing on the flat side of each bear and lay them icing-side up on the parchment paper.

just gob it on, it doesn`t need to be perfect!
Next, place a mini marshmallow length-wise on 1/2 of the bears you have iced.


Place the other half of iced bears on top of the marshmallows to make a bear sandwich.
The first batch I only iced the bottom half, but found that the top bear would keep falling off!


Turn your oven to 200 (F) and put them right in, don't wait for it to pre-heat.  Leave them for about 30 seconds.  You want to see the marshmallow swell a bit, but not explode!


Et Voila!


Super Cute Teddy Bear S'mores!

These were a big hit at the shower! No one had seen anything like them before.
I made them the night before, put plastic wrap over the baking sheet and left them out.  At the shower I put them in the oven again at 200 for 30 seconds to warm them up. 
 They are also good at room temperature!

enojoy!
