DIY Under $5 {Smores Recipe}

I am excited to share a recipe with you today! The best part about it is that in true tipsy fashion you only need 3 ingredients and about 3 minutes to make these delectable delights! (I shared this a few weeks ago on My Junk Drawer so if it looks familiar, that's why.)

I have been pining for warm weather (it is finally starting to be nice after weeks and weeks of rain) and the chance to get outside so I decided to bring the outdoors in with a summertime favorite of ours, S'mores!


Or as Buzz Lightyear would call them, "delicious hot schmoes."

Smores Recipe



Supplies Needed:
  • Graham Crackers
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Almond Bark aka dipping chocolate
1. Lay out 8 graham squares on a cookie sheet. (I know I only have 6, but I had leftover chocolate so you can do 8.)



2. Chop up about 2 oz. of almond bark. Microwave for one minute and stir until smooth. Add more time in 15 second increments if needed.


3. Spoon a good amount on to each cracker.


4. Add about 10 mini marshmallows to each cracker.



5. Use remaining chocolate to drizzle on with a spoon.
6. Heat oven to broil and allow almond bark to dry so it is not shiny. Pop them in to the fridge for a minute if you are impatient like me.



7. Put them in the oven for about 1 minute 15 seconds or until golden brown. Watch them closely!!

Wow your unsuspecting kiddo with a totally awesome treat!



Good to the last ooey gooey drop!

They are also great for a little Thank you or thinking of you gift!
Just skip the broiling step so they can do it on their own and have a nice warm treat.
Cover some cardboard in tin foil, pop it into a treat bag and tie with a ribbon.



My tag is a laminate sample from the hardware store dressed up with a sticker and some paper on the back with directions.



Total cost: $3 to buy the almond bark, I had the rest on hand


Now it's time to link up your $5 projects!

Please remember:
  • Only link to your own projects that cost you $5 or less (price does not have to include items you had on hand)
  • You can link past projects that fit the dollar limit, but please only link each project once
  • No giveaways or items for sale
  • Please link back so others can join the party and so you have the opportunity to be featured on Saturday!
