  1. Place 1/2 of the chocolate pieces in a bowl. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or waxed paper.
  2. Heat cream in a small saucepan just until it boils; pour over chocolate pieces. Let mixture stand for 1 to 2 minutes. Gently whisk until ganache is smooth; whisk in bourbon, a little at a time, until smooth. The ganache will thicken as it cools.
  3. Insert a fork into 1 end of a marshmallow without pushing it through all the way. Toast over a gas or electric burner set to medium-low, rotating until all sides are browned and marshmallow is puffed, about 1 minute per side. Hold the marshmallow high enough so the heat causes the marshmallow to puff up without catching on fire. Don't brown the top end where the fork is inserted.
  4. Place marshmallow on the prepared baking sheet, using a second fork to help slide the marshmallow off the fork. After a few seconds, the untoasted top will sink down, forming a hollow space in the center of the marshmallow. Repeat with the rest of the marshmallows. Chill in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  5. Melt the remaining chocolate pieces in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 15-second intervals, stirring after each melting, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir chocolate until smooth; cool slightly.
  6. Spread melted chocolate onto top and bottom of each marshmallow and dip into the crushed graham crackers. Chill in refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  7. Whisk the cooled ganache until fluffy; pipe into each marshmallow using a pastry bag or plastic bag with a corner cut off. Garnish each "hot tub" with a teddy bear-shaped graham snack.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Flavoring the ganache with bourbon is optional. You can use any other liqueur, or leave out the alcohol altogether for a kid-friendly version.

A co-worker of mine made these and brought them in to share with everybody and they were awesome. Super tasty and pretty cool looking. I hope she gets a giant raise.

Made them for the grandkids and looked adorable, but very labor intensive. I had my husband help me roast them over our gas stove, Seemed to take forever. Then the marshmallows were so soft...

These sound amazing and so very creative but I've one problem. Toasting the marshmallows sounds like something I wouldn't have the time/energy for and not even sure if I could do it on my flat s...

I only ate one, but I wish I had about 20. These were so decadent, rich, and wonderful. So worth the effort to create these little masterpieces.

Delicious AND adorable!

These were delicious! Admittedly, I did not make them - but the end result was that right combination of toasty marshmallow, crunchy graham crackers, and rich chocolate just like s'mores you hav...

I made this for a party and it was a huge hit! Thanks for posting it. I ended up making two batches. One with alcohol and one without for the kids. It took a few tries to get the marshmallows ...

Fun to make, easy to follow video. Absolute blast at holiday work party!
