1 cup graham cracker crumbs
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

6 scoops vanilla ice cream
Mini marshmallows (about half a bag)
Hot Fudge or Chocolate Sauce/ Syrup
For the graham cracker crust: Mix graham cracker crumbs, butter, sugar, cinnamon and pinch of salt together in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Press the crust firmly into 6 wells in muffin pan to make individual crusts. Place muffin pan in freezer for 30 minutes to set. Remove from freezer and top each crust with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Press mini marshmallows into ice cream, covering the scoop completely. Return to freezer for minimum of 2 hours or longer.
When ready to serve, use a kitchen torch to toast marshmallows or place pan with s’mores under the broiler until marshmallows brown, about 30 seconds. (Watch carefully as they burn easily). If you enjoy a little fire with your food ;) you can find culinary / crème brûlée torches on Amazon or at kitchen stores.
Place each s’more on a plate and drizzle with hot fudge/chocolate sauce.
