Gluten-free mini strawberry s'mores tarts recipe
- 7 whole gluten-free graham crackers, crumbled finely
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
- 1/3 cup gluten-free strawberry jam or jelly
- 1/3 cup gluten-free marshmallow cream
- 6 fresh strawberries, sliced into small pieces for garnish
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 (12-count) mini muffin tins with paper liners, and set them aside.
- Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter until combined.
- Add about 1-1/2 teaspoons to each liner, and press down firmly into the bottom. Bake for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and allow the crusts to cool completely.
- Remove the paper liners from the tarts, and place the tarts on a cutting board.
- Dollop a small amount of the strawberry jam or jelly into the cooled tart crusts. Use your finger to spread it out slightly.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and vegetable shortening, and heat for about 15 seconds, depending on your microwave. If you need to, continue to heat the chips in 5-second increments until they're melted. Stir with a spoon to mix the chips and shortening together and to ensure all the chips are melted.
- Drizzle a small amount of the melted chocolate in a thin layer over the strawberry jam or jelly. Allow the chocolate to sit for about 5 minutes.
- Use a teaspoon to carefully add a small amount of the marshmallow cream over the chocolate. You don't need much of the marshmallow cream.
- Use a kitchen torch to carefully caramelize the tops of the marshmallow cream.
- Garnish with the pieces of strawberries, and serve immediately.
Bring this classic treat to the great indoors.
