I found a new blog the other day, backcountrybelle, who blogged about making s’mores on a stick. They looked so fun and easy and perfect for the 4th of July. As she states on her blog, this isn’t a new concept, but here’s how mine turned out.
Ingredients: Package of marshmallows, package of chocolate chips & box of graham crackers.
Step 1: Melt some chocolate…
Step 2: Dip a lollipop stick (or skewer) in the chocolate and then stick it into the marshmallow about 1/2 way.
Step 3: Put in fridge for about 10-15 minutes.
Step 4: Melt more chocolate…
Step 5: Dip the marshmallow into the chocolate, then immediately roll in crushed graham crackers.
Step 6: Put in fridge for 20-30 minutes to harden the chocolate.
Here are some helpful hints:
- For one bag of marshmallows, melt 24oz chocolate chips and crush 1/2 a box of graham crackers. This is a bit more than you need, but you don’t want to run out.
- The lollipop sticks worked a lot better than the skewers. You can find them at Michael’s or Wal-Mart.
- Melt the chocolate in a double boiler so you don’t burn it. If you don’t have one then boil a pan of water and set a glass bowl above it.
- After dipping the marshmallow in chocolate rub it against the inside of the pan and scrape the bottom off. I found I was using way too much chocolate for the first ones I did (Wait! Did I just say I used too much chocolate???) and it was dripping off into the graham cracker crumbs. (If you follow the rub/scrape technique you won’t need 24oz chocolate)
I made these for Nic & Sara’s 4th of July/Birthday/Anniversary party so I made 2 batches. I fitted a bowl I found in the dollar section of Target with stryofoam. I wrapped them all up in clear bags (Michael’s or Walmart) and stuck them in the bowl. Enjoy!
