We love s'mores. Love them. We've made them in the microwave and on the grill, but we've never thought of making them inside a jar until now. These no-bake S'mores in a Jar are seriously delicious, and they look so cute when you serve them with adorable disposable plastic mini spoons! Everyone will ask for your secret recipe after trying these at your next get-together.
How to Make Homemade Chocolate Ganache?
To make Homemade Chocolate Ganache:
- In a small saucepan, heat the cream and butter until it simmers.
- Remove from the heat and add the chocolate, stirring until it is melted and smooth. Let cool for about 15 minutes before using it as a filling for your jars (this will help it thicken). Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks if not using immediately on your S'mores in a Jar recipe!
How to Toast the Marshmallows?
To toast the marshmallows, all you need is a kitchen blowtorch. If you don't have one, you can still get it done. A grill works well too, but be careful not to burn them! It's best to use a broiler if neither of those is available: just place your marshmallows under the broiler until they're golden brown, watching them closely, so they don't burn (about 30 seconds per side).
How to Make No-Bake S'mores in a Jar?
It's party time, and you want to make some no-bake s'mores in a jar. Here is how to make it happen:
- 8 ounces of cream cheese at room temperature
- 1/2 cup marshmallow fluff
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (or more if you like)
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
To make the homemade chocolate ganache, put ¼ cup of heavy cream in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat.
Once the cream begins to simmer, pour 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 Tablespoon of butter into a large bowl. The butter will help the chocolate melt faster and easier.
When the cream simmers, pour it over your chocolate chips and butter mixture. Let sit for 30 seconds before whisking everything together until smooth and glossy. This should take less than a minute to do!
Now you are ready to assemble these no-bake s'mores in a jar! First, pour one-third of your ganache into each jar (I used three 4 oz jars), then top with two graham crackers broken down roughly by hand so they fit easily in each jar without falling through too much (you could also use digestive cookies if you like). Then sprinkle on some mini marshmallows, followed by another layer of graham cracker crumbs for good measure; repeat this process until you have reached about 3/4 full on top (or however complete you want them).
Now seal up those jars tightly with lids or plastic wrap! You can either store these at room temperature or chill them for longer storage time—just remember that refrigerated items need longer than room temp items for preservation purposes due to mold growth rates being lower when cold temperatures are involved. Or skip chilling altogether if you have company over soon:)
- Make sure you have everything you need before you start the recipe.
- Get all of your ingredients from a trusted source.
- Follow the recipe precisely, without substitutions or changes.
- Make sure that your jars are clean and dry before you begin.
- This classic camping treat goes great with a cup of hot cocoa!
If you're craving a no-bake S'mores in a Jar recipe that's a little more adventurous than the usual chocolate and graham cracker combo, there are plenty of ways to mix it up. Just swap out the chocolate chips for different flavors, like peanut butter cups or mint chocolate chips. Go crazy!
If you want to keep things simple, just use regular graham crackers and Hershey bars as your base ingredients. But if you're going to kick things up a notch, try using mini marshmallows, or even Rice Krispies treats as toppings instead of chocolate chips. Or go nuts with whatever else is handy (such as pretzels). The possibilities are endless!
How to Store this in a Jar
Store in the refrigerator until you're ready to serve it. Cover the jar with plastic wrap before putting it in your fridge to prevent the graham crackers from getting soggy and breaking apart.
The ingredients should stay good for up to five days in a sealed container.
How Far in Advance Can I Make These?
These s'mores jars can be made a day in advance and kept in the fridge for up to 3 days. If you want to keep them longer, freeze them and then thaw them in the refrigerator. Make sure to wrap well before freezing!
