For the Biscuit Cracker Crust

5 whole digestive biscuits

For the Pudding

3 cups whole milk
2 large egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornflour
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
4 ounces milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 ounce dark chocolate
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Special equipment: Six 5-ounce jars and a kitchen torch

1. For the crust: Add the graham crackers to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the biscuits are crushed in to crumbs. Add 2 tablespoons of graham cracker crumbs to each of six 5-ounce jars. Press the crumbs down to the bottoms with the back of a spoon. Reserve the remaining crumbs.

2. For the pudding: Heat the milk until hot but not boiling in a saucepan on the stove or in a heat-proof bowl in the microwave (1 minute on high). Beat the egg yolks in a medium bowl and add the hot milk, slowly at first, stirring constantly so the eggs do not scramble. Continue until all the milk is incorporated.

3. Add the sugar, cornflour and salt to a medium saucepan. Whisk until there are no lumps. Slowly whisk in the hot milk mixture in a steady stream so lumps do not form. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture starts to bubble and has thickened, about 10 minutes. Add the milk and dark chocolate and stir until the chocolate is melted, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter and vanilla extract. Distribute the pudding among the jars and refrigerate until fully set, 2 to 3 hours.

For the toppings:

1. Remove the jars from the refrigerator 2 hours before serving to come to room temperature. Just before serving, top the pudding with another layer of the reserved graham cracker crumbs. Add the miniature marshmallows to cover. Use a kitchen torch to brown the marshmallows. Top each S'mores in a Jar with a large piece of biscuit.

Propane gas torches are highly flammable and should be kept away from heat, open flame, and prolonged exposure to sunlight. They should only be used in well-ventilated areas. When lighting a propane gas torch, place the torch on a flat, steady surface, facing away from you. Light the match or lighter and then open the gas valve. Light the gas jet, and blow out the match. Always turn off the burner valve to "finger tight" when finished using the torch. Children should never use a propane gas torch.
