Valentine S'mores Bites

I love Valentine's Day! I don't care that's it's completely over the top commercialized or have the hang up that we shouldn't need a special day to show someone we love them. It's so much fun despite and because of all those things. I am a total romantic at heart. Combine that with all the hearts, pink and red and I am right in the middle enjoying the allure the day can bring. 

Before I blog this recipe, let me add a few things I did so I don't confuse you. Much. I originally intended to make these with heart marshmallows and couldn't find them anywhere. Of course they are in every store NOW. These would be so much cuter with them! So either use a heart shaped cookie cutter and heart shaped marshmallows or a round cookie cutter with standard shaped marshmallows. OR be a dork like me and use a heart shaped cutter and standard marshmallows. You pick. 

1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup melted butter
dipping chocolate
heart shaped marshmallows (I used strawberry flavored regular)
sprinkles (I used heart shapes)

Mix melted butter and graham cracker crumbs together. Spread evenly into a foil lined 9 x 13 inch pan. Press down firmly, as firmly as you can using a spatula. This is important or when cutting the shapes, the base will break into pieces. Place in freezer for an hour. Remove the foil from the pan and use a mini cookie cutter to cut into shapes.

Dip the very bottom of the marshmallows into the dipping chocolate and place them on the top of your cut out graham cracker shapes.

Wait for them to cool. Then dip the whole thing back in the dipping chocolate. Place on wax paper and top with sprinkles.
