Nothing says love like chocolate and marshmallows

Looking for a last minute Valentine gift or need a little treat for after dinner with your sweetheart? Try this super easy S'mores pot!

Gather the following ingredients:

  1. A super cute little mason jar...or any jar with a wide opening.  (You could even use a bowl if you are having a super chill V-day and that is all you have lying around.)
  2. Hersheys milk chocolate bars - 2 large or 8 minis
  3. Marshmallows...yum! We used strawberry heart-shaped ones for a little Valentine's flair but the puffy white ones work too.
  4. Graham crackers or cookies...for dipping!

Next, place the chocolate in the jar (if you are using bars, break up in small pieces) and pop it in the microwave. Utilize your microwave's "Melt" setting and choose chocolate (if available). Two large bars or 8 minis are about 6 ounces. Your microwave should automatically set for approximately 4.5 minutes.

*Helpful Hint: spray the inside of the jar with cooking spray to keep the chocolate from sticking and easier clean-up.

After chocolate is melted, add marshmallows (about 10 small or 5 large) and pop it back in the microwave for 30 seconds. Marshmallows will puff and grow and get all gooey and delicious!

Add some colored sugar, sprinkles, cookie crumbles, chocolate shavings.... and grab your dippers!  We used both honey and chocolate graham crackers...equally yum!

If you are looking to gift these tiny jars of deliciousness, then pile in the chocolate bar pieces and marshmallows and pop on the lid.  Wrap with some cute ribbon and gift away!
