S’mores Tart

smores-tart

‘Tis the season for all things S’Mores!

So naturally I had to bust out the S’mores Tart!

With the success of my S’mores Campfire Cake (complete with sugar fire!) and the S’mores Cookies; how could I stop there?

Honey Graham Crust filled with chocolate ganache and smothered in melt-y toast-y homemade marshmallow!

You will be saying “I want s’ more!” for sure!

I made them in 4″ individual tart shells but you can simply use all the ingredients listed below to make 1 larger family size portion tart

This is a Building on Recipes project of course, so you will have to prepare the graham dough and ganache ahead of time, but be sure NOT to make the marshmallow until just before you are ready to pipe it onto the tart.

The gelatin starts to set quickly and believe me it is not fun trying to squeeze solid marshmallows out of a pastry bag!

As you all know the close relationship I have with my blowtorch and I will recommend that everyone has one!

It is what gives this S’mores Tart the signature campfire look by toasting the marshmallow to perfection!

  • Granulated Sugar ½ cup (100g)
  • Light Corn Syrup ½ cup (120ml)
  • Vanilla Extract 2 teaspoons (10ml)
Instructions
  1. Cream the butter & both sugars on medium to high speed for about 3-5 minutes until light & fluffy
  2. Add the molasses & honey and then mix smooth
  3. Add the sifted flour, graham crumbs & salt and mix until well combined
  4. Chill dough for about 2 hours before rolling
  5. Knead it back to a pliable dough on a generously floured surface and then roll it out to about ¼" thick
  6. Cut the dough out and fit it inside each un greased tart mold
  7. While you are preheating the oven to 350°F put the tart shells in the freezer
  8. When the oven is ready, bake the COLD tart shells for about 18-20 minutes or until they are golden browned and baked through
  9. Cool them completely and then pour in the melted ganache
  10. Allow the ganache to set and then prepare the marshmallows
  11. In a small sauce pot sprinkle the gelatin over the water and let it stand for about 5 minutes to bloom, it will look slushy as the gelatin absorbs the water
  12. Add the sugar and heat it over a low heat to melt the gelatin and dissolve the sugar DO NOT BOIL
  13. Add the corn syrup and vanilla extract and whip the entire mixture on high speed with a balloon whip attachment until it is white, fluffy about 5 X in volume and starts to look like marshmallow fluff
  14. Be careful not to whip it too long or the colder it gets the gelatin starts to set and will be nearly impossible to pipe out of the pastry bag!
  15. Im using a pastry bag fitted with a #21 Ateco tip to pipe spikey marshmallows all around the tops of each tart
Notes
S'mores Tarts are best served at room temperature and can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days

  1. Hello Gretchen, it looks wonderful. I wanted to make it, but I don’t see the other recipes (marshmallow, ganache and dough)… camping season and barbecue season is coming and it sure sounds like a great recipe to make… and to eat! Thanks again!

  2. Hi Gretchen, I was wondering what to do since my tart pans do not have removable bottoms. What do you recommend.
    Thanks,
    Sam

  3. I’m thinking of using your meringue recipe instead of the marshmallow because of the temperature piping issue. What do you recommend I change up/add for the meringue recipe to match the s’mores flavor?

    1. Hmm, well… meringue is meringue (just egg whites) marshmallow is marshmallow. There’s not much you can add to egg whites to make it taste like marshmallow.
      I suppose the power of suggestion can’t hurt.. meaning if you tell them its marshmallow, the brain will believe that it is??
