S’mores In A Cup
When things are busy, it’s always good to keep an easy no-bake recipe in your back pocket. For these No Bake S’mores Cups, you may already have all of the simple ingredients needed in your kitchen as we speak!
Using everyday Hershey’s chocolate bars, chocolate pudding, graham crackers, and marshmallow fluff, anyone can make this delicious dessert recipe on the fly and look like a master baker. They don’t have to know how easy it is – let them be impressed!
Unlike traditional s’mores, you will need to have dessert shot glasses or small shallow cups on hand for this recipe. You can get this 4-pack for a great price or find something equivalent that you might already have in your kitchen cabinets.
This great recipe is perfect for a dessert table for the holidays or for little hands at a birthday party.

- I prefer to use milk chocolate products for these sweet treats, but you can use dark chocolate if that’s your preference. Try one the first time and the other the next time. See what you like best.
- Depending on what chocolate you choose, the size may be slightly different. For example, a Hershey’s chocolate bar will yield a small rectangle while something else may give you a square.
- This fun recipe makes three glasses, so double or triple the recipe if you need more.
- If you are making your mini s’mores for kids, I highly suggest using plastic cups instead of glass.
How To Make Smores Cups Recipe
S’mores Cups Ingredients:
1 chocolate pudding cup 3.25 oz
3 mini marshmallows
3 chocolate candy bar squares
2 graham crackers, full sheets, crushed
1 cup marshmallow creme (about 4 oz)
3 small dessert glasses or tall shot glasses
3 Resealable bags or piping bags
Step 1: Pull out three small dessert glasses and place them in your work area. You’ll want to be adding to them throughout the process, so the best way to set things up is to have a small bowl of each of your other ingredients readily available.
Step 2: Pull out two sheets of graham crackers from your package. Place them into a Ziploc bag and crush them with your hands until you have fine crumbs. You can also use a rolling pin or a mini food processor if that is easier.
Step 3: Add a small layer of graham cracker crumbs to the bottom of each cup. Try to put about the same amount in each of the dessert glasses.
You’ll want to use most of the graham cracker crumbs at this point, but reserve about a tablespoon or two for the top.
Step 4: Pour your pudding into a pastry bag so that you can squeeze it into the center of each cup cleanly. If you do not have a pastry bag, you can also use a large resealable plastic bag (like a Ziploc) and cut off one small corner.
Step 5: Squeeze the pudding into each of the little cups in a single layer. You want to fill them about 1/3 of the way up the glass, making sure to keep each glass about the same. Continue to empty the pudding in the glasses until you run out.
Step 6: Add the gooey marshmallow creme into a piping bag just as you did with the pudding. Add some creme to each glass until the glass is filled to the top.
Step 7: Once the glasses are full, add a little bit of graham cracker crumbs to the top of each cup. Top each one with miniature marshmallows along with a small section of milk chocolate candy bars.
You can add a few more crumbs to the top of each marshmallow if you’d like.
Optional Step: For each chocolate bar, I did slightly shave mine with a zester. That left little milk chocolate chunks along with a few chocolate shavings, but that step is completely optional. This yummy treat looks awesome either way.
Serve immediately or fairly quickly for the best results. They will be fine for several hours at room temperature if left on a dessert table.
How To Store No-Bake S’mores Cups
Store any leftover s’mores cups in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can place them in a deep airtight container so that the top doesn’t touch the marshmallow fluff, but you don’t have to.
Can I Make These S’mores Pudding Cups Ahead Of Time?
You can make these s’mores dessert cups a day ahead of time, but you’ll want to finish them at the last minute.
Prepare the graham crackers, pudding, and marshmallow creme layers and then cover them with plastic wrap and place them in the refrigerator. When you are ready to serve, remove the wrap, and add your marshmallow, chocolate, and graham cracker crumbs.
What Is S’mores Short For?
I’ve wondered about this for years, so I did some research. S’mores is short for “some more” or “some mores.” It was published in a Girl Scout recipe book in the 1920s. The words got combined and now it stands for one of our favorite dessert recipes that can be made in a variety of ways.
So whether you’re having melted chocolate with large marshmallows in graham cracker cups in a mini muffin tin, apple slices with chocolate chips, marshmallows, and graham cracker pieces (Like my Apple Nachos S’mores), or classic s’mores with Hershey’s bars made over a fire pit, they’re all the delicious treat we call s’mores.
