S’mores Pops

So…I seem to have this love of food on “sticks”.  :)

It all began with, of course, sugary lollipops and popsicles as a kiddo.  Then over the years progressed to delicious little hors d’oeuvres (and especially cheeses) on toothpicks.  Then over the last few years, have adored and enjoyed trying Bakerella’s trend of cupcakes on a stick (“cupcake pops”).

So when I was randomly craving s’mores this week, I had the idea (oddly in this half-conscious state right before falling asleep) to try transitioning them from the tree branch to a different kind of “stick”.  Of course, once I did a quick Google search the next morning, realized that I wasn’t the first with the idea.  But decided to give them a go to bring to a Christmas party last night, and they ended up being an enormous success!  Everyone could not stop talking about them….or eating them.  :)

The best part was that they were a total breeze to make.  And way fun!!  I ended up whipping them up alone during a free half hour after work, but these would be a blast to make with a group or especially with kids!  They dry within 10-15 minutes, so they can be enjoyed immediately.  (Or even more immediately if you’re into warm melted chocolate…mmmm….)

Will definitely be making s’more of these soon!  (I know…couldn’t resist!)  ;)

S'mores Pops

These ridiculously cute s’mores pops are always a crowd favorite, they taste amazing – and are super-easy to make! Go for it!

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag large marshmallows
  • 1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package cinnamon or honey graham crackers (about 9 long/large crackers) – or just buy graham cracker crumbs
  • lollipop sticks (available in cake decorating aisles)

Directions:

Begin by twisting the lollipop sticks until they are securely in the middle of the marshmallows. (Insert them on the flat, not rounded, side of the marshmallows. Then push them in until they almost pop through.) Then place the graham crackers in a strong Ziplock bag, and use a rolling pin (or whatever you’d like) to crush them until they are finely ground. Then place them in a small bowl.

Then heat the chocolate chips in a double-boiler or (carefully!) in the microwave until they are melted and somewhat runny.

While holding the stick, carefully dip a marshmallow in the chocolate mixture until completely covered. Then gently roll the sides and top of the marshmallow in the graham cracker crumbs until they are well-coated. Place on a plate or on wax paper to let cool and dry. Repeat with remaining marshmallows.

Ali’s Tip:

If your melted chocolate mixture is still too thick, stir in a spoonful or two of shortening until it reaches your desired consistency.  I know it’s not the best for nutrition, but it’s the best chocolate thinner.  :)  (Hint: never, ever add water!)

  1. Food on sticks is the best invention ever ~ LOVE these pops!

  2. I just love this idea! Can’t believe I never thought of it myself with my smore love addiction! Thanks so much for sharing this ( found it via pinterest through another board and then here). How about thinning the chocolate with some coconut oil instead of shortening?

  33. is this something that can be done a day a head and if I am taking outdoor for the party what’s the best way to store them 

    • Hey Devanshi! You could definitely make these a day in advance. We recommend storing them at room temp (as long as they don’t get hot, they should be fine). We hope you enjoy!

  34. If you want to make the whole thing edible, try using pretzel sticks for the stick part! The saltiness of the pretzel would play well with the sugary-ness of the marshmallow and chocolate!

  35. these are great! they taste amazing and they are really simple! i will definetly make these again!!!!

  36. Can butter be used instead of shortening to thin chocolate out? :) Just curious since I usually don’t use shortening

    • We think shortening works better, but the butter should still work! We hope you enjoy! :)
