Celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito thinks s'mores are sexy. "It's very tactile," he says. "It breaks down barriers because you get your hands dirty." Here, his recipe for S'Mores Tartlets.
8 Keebler Mini Graham Cracker Pie Crusts, or other tart shells of choice
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
8 large strawberries, sliced
1 1/2 cups Marshmallow Fluff marshmallow creme
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Place tart shells on a baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from oven and turn oven up to 500 degrees.
- Meanwhile, in a microwaveable bowl melt chocolate in microwave at 50 percent power for about 3 minutes, or until melted, stirring halfway through cooking time. Spoon a little more than a tablespoon of melted chocolate into the bottom of each tart shell. Arrange strawberry slices from one strawberry on the chocolate in each shell. Spoon about 3 tablespoons Fluff inside each shell and spread to cover the entire surface of the shell. Sprinkle a tiny amount of salt on top of the Fluff.
- Place filled tartlets in oven. Watching carefully, allow the Fluff to get toasty brown, about 3 minutes. Remove from oven. Place 2 tartlets on each plate. Drizzle with melted chocolate and serve immediately.
