Mini S'mores Pies with Homemade Chocolate Pudding

Every once in a while the kids kick around the idea of building a little fire pit and when it comes up Rachel mentions S'mores. I thought I'd surprise her with these Mini S'mores Pies (which couldn't be easier to make). As the weather gets warmer shortcuts like store bought mini graham cracker crusts and a mini marshmallow topping are welcome. I made a homemade chocolate pudding but in a pinch a box of Jello instant pudding would work fine, I see Hershey's has pudding now too. I did have to turn on the broiler, but that heats up quickly and it only takes a couple minutes to toast the top of the marshmallows. They were a big hit with my crew, I think you'll like this easy summertime treat if you try it folks!
 Why mini crusts? 1) I wanted a larger graham cracker ratio. 2) Have you ever tried to cut through a marshmallow topping??? 
And 3) they're, well... cute:@)
