can buy chocolate shot glasses here,
but why not save some money and make your own! You will need two
ounce plastic portion cups and one ounce plastic portion cups
(found in restaurant supply stores), or 3 oz Dixie cups and portions
cups, a double boiler or microwave, tray or cooking sheet, unflavored
cooking spray (like Pam©), and baking chocolate (I like to
use half milk chocolate and half dark chocolate), and some baking
wax (found next to the chocolate). Adding a little baking wax
makes the glass hard and sturdy.
As the chocolate mixture is melting in a double boiler or microwave,
spray the insides of the two-ounce portion cups and the outsides
of the one-ounce portion cups with the cooking spray to prevent
Pour chocolate 3/4 of the way up the two-ounce cup then place
the one ounce cup inside until the chocolate ooozes up to the
top. This molds of the inside of the shot glass.
Place on a tray/sheet and put in the freezer to set up.
Remove from the freezer and pop off the portion cups.
When buying the portion cups, the smaller ones must fit down into
the larger ones, so try them at the store before buying because
you will probably have to buy them in bulk. They are resuable.
You may have to experiment with the correct amount of chocolate
to pour in the two ounce cups.
When making several, an ice cold water bath will help them start
to set up while you work on the others.
Tips for making Smores Shots:
• Don't use a lighter because lighter fluid will go in the
• Do not drink the shot until the flame is blown out.
• Don't let the flame burn too long because it starts to
melt the glass. Have marshmallows already on the the toothpick.
• If lighting several shots at a time then extreme organization
must take place. Try to line the shots up so that everything stays
orderly to avoid dangerous situations.
• Think about serving cocktail weenies next
to them to pull together a miniature campfire theme. Having
a miniature party would be fun! (A great recipe for the cocktail
weenies is a jar of grape jelly and a jar of BBQ sauce. Cook
on low in a crockpot all day.)
• Pre-mix the spirits (except for the 151 Rum). Maybe
the shot mixture could be put into picnic-type mustard &
ketchup squeeze bottles to match the theme then squeezed into
the shot glasses when needed.
S’mores stands for some-mores (gimmesome-more).
The first recorded version of the recipe can be found in the Girl
Scout Handbook of 1927 and the recipe has not changed since.
