The recipe that will have you wanting s'more

If s’mores are one of your favorite sweet treats, but you don't have a bonfire anywhere nearby (who does in the middle of January?) then look no further. We found the *perfect* recipe that will satisfy your craving for s’mores even in the winter, and provide you with a total Instagram-worthy snack. And you don't have to be a baking pro to make them!

S'mores cake in a jar 

Ingredients (crust):

- 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 stick butter
- Pinch of salt
- 4 16 ounce mason jars

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. Melt the butter and then mix in graham cracker crumbs and salt until mixture is completely moistened.

3. Spray four mason jars with non-stick cooking spray and press your mixture into the jars. You can press the crumbs into the bottom of the jar using the bottom of a *clean* screwdriver.

Ingredients (cake):

- 1 ⅛ cups all purpose flour
- ¼ cup dark cocoa powder
- 1 ¼ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ cup milk
- ½ cup and 1 tbsp heavy cream
- ½ cup melted butter
- 2 tbsp sour cream
- 1 bag large marshmallows

1. In a bowl, mix the egg and sugar until they are completely smooth. Then add the milk, cream, butter, vanilla and sour cream and mix until they are fully combined.

2. Mix the dry ingredients together and add them to your wet mixture, when you will then combine everything together to make one batter. Take a ¼ cup of your batter and add it to your mason jar. Do this one scoop at a time until your jars are filled about halfway up.

3. Then place your mason jars in an oven-safe baking pan and add about 1 ½ cups of water to the bottom. Bake this for 30 minutes, or until the mixture has set.

4. Remove jars from the oven and you add the marshmallows, pressing them down into the mixture gently. Here you can use as many (or as little) marshmallows as you’d like.

5. Bonus: If you’d like the "burnt" effect, place them back in the oven for about 1 minute (make sure the marshmallows are not *completely* overflowing from the jar). After the minute is up, use your cutest oven mitts to remove your cakes from the oven, let them cool and enjoy.
