We have a slew of friends who seem to be moving this time of year. In an effort to bring something over that is creative and sweet we made these s’more house treats using Dolci Frutta chocolate shell. A fun way to design a miniature version of our favorite friend’s new houses and a sweet housewarming gift they’ll enjoy.
The little houses can me made to mimic a friend’s new home exactly (which is so fun!) and the chocolate lining, graham cracker walls and marshmallow filling make for a tasty summer night treat to enjoy.
To make the s’more miniature houses you will need:
- Graham crackers
- Dolci Frutta White Shell & Chocolate Shell
- Food coloring
- Bowls for mixing
- A knife and toothpick for decorating
S’more Miniature Houses
1. Start by breaking the graham crackers down into house form using a knife. We laid ours out until we had the right pieces.
2. Melt down the chocolate shell candy and cover the bottom cracker with the chocolate. While it is still soft add the sides of the house and hold until firm (or prop them up). Layer the chocolate into the house along the creases to hold.
3. Melt the white chocolate into a couple different bowls and color with a few drops of the food coloring to match the house details. We added a pink roof and peach trim. Use the melted chocolate for decorating and combining the roof pieces.
4. Fill with the miniature houses with marshmallows before adding on the roof for a gift that turns into a tasty summer s’more in seconds.
Although we made these especially for a housewarming party… the concept would also be a great way to spend a long afternoon home with the kids. A summer version of our beloved gingerbread house decorating. Have the kids design their own special house and recreate it with vibrant colors and tasty chocolate filling! Heat up the fire at night and give everyone a turn roasting their own little house s’mores.
Hand off the miniature versions of your favorite friend’s new house along with the needed gift card to a home improvement store for a housewarming gift that is both thoughtful and fun.
