Strawberry season is in full swing and I plan on keeping my refrigerator fully stocked until the end of it. Yep, I’m setting you up for a slew of strawberry recipes, like this one and few more.
For today, I’m keeping it simple with these Strawberry S’mores Bites. If you need any more convincing, these are great for entertaining—easy to make and always impressive. But it’s hard to go wrong with toasted marshmallow frosting and dipped chocolate.
And because they are so easy to make, I pumped out quite a few batches of these as thank you’s to all those that helped Matt and me when the baby came. I wish I could make some for every one of you that gave us such warm congratulations on our blogs and social media channels. You guys are awesome and I’m so thankful for your friendship and readership.
- 14-16 medium strawberries, hulled
- 4 oz. chocolate (I used 65% cacao)
- 1 1/2 teaspoon shortening
- 4 tablespoon graham cracker crumbs
- Marshmallow Frosting
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup sugar
Preparation: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Place chocolate and shortening in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 15 second bursts stirring in between until chocolate is fully melted.
- Dip strawberries in chocolate, then graham cracker crumbs. Place dipped strawberries on on parchment lined baking sheet to dry.
- To make marshmallow frosting: Combine egg whites and sugar in a stand mixer bowl and place it over—not on, simmering water. Heat mixture to 160 degrees F while whisking constantly. Transfer to a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment and beat on medium high speed until mixture cools, doubles in volume and forms stiff peaks; about 10-12 minutes. Transfer marshmallow frosting to a pastry bag fitted with a close start tip and pipe into hulled strawberries. Use a kitchen torch to toast.
- To hull the strawberries, I used the Chef'n Strawberry Huller. It can be found on Amazon or at William Sonoma.
- You may have more marshmallow creme than you need.
- Save yourself some money and just buy a Bernzomatic propane torch instead of one of these kitchen torches you usually see in William Sonoma and Sur la Table. They can be twice the price and aren't nearly as strong.

Again, congrats on the new baby! I am SO excited for you!! And these bites are seriously amazing. Simple AND gorg! Pinned!
Looks great and I plan on trying it. However it looks like there is an ingredient missing. I assume that is crushed graham cracker on the bottom!

Laurie Ronan says
I guess it’s obvious, but how or what do you do with graham cracker crumbs. They appear to be ultra crumbed.
Such a unique and I bet crowd pleasing dessert!!
Kevin @ Closet Cooking says
What a great way to enjoy strawberries!
Meggan Hill says
These are so pretty and elegant, and apparently easy too? Then again I think you have a SuperMom outfit on under there somewhere, because who is blogging this soon after having a baby? Amazing and inspirational. Oh and, I forsee a lot of future uses for your super simple marshmallow frosting. Thanks for adding it to my tool belt.
This looks delicious!!! I’ll definitely make this recipe some time next week. 😀
These look AMAZING!!! Might just have to share these with my readers in my next Weekly Wonders post…we love some sweet stuff 🙂 xxx
When do you dip in the cracker crumbs?
