S'Mores Pop

One of my favorite foods (or combination of foods if you’re going to be picky) is S’Mores.  I seriously love them and try to make S’mores themed recipes as often as possible.  When I saw S’mores Pops on Pinterest, I knew I had to try them! (BTW, if you’re on Pinterest, I’d love to have you follow me).

On my next trip to the grocery store, I picked up the necessary ingredients…Marshmallows, Hershey’s Bars (I’m sure you could do this with chocolate chips too, but I’m a S’Mores snob and I like mine with Hershey’s bars) and graham crackers.  I already had Wilton’s Lollipop sticks in the pantry since I have a slight obsession with foods on a stick!

Since the rest of my family loves S’Mores as well, I knew I only had a small window of opportunity to whip up S’mores pops.  I knew if I waited a day or two, I’d find that my supplies had all been eaten.  Once I laid out my ingredients, it only took a few minutes to make the S’Mores Pops.  The longest part of the whole process was waiting for the chocolate to set and that only took 20 minutes!

Here’s how to whip up this super easy and tasty snack!

1.  Take marshmallows and place them on lollipop sticks.

2. In a large mug, heat Hershey’s bar on high for 15 second intervals (stirring after each 15 seconds until chocolate is smooth)

3.  Turn your graham crackers into graham cracker crumbs.  Most people have their own preferred method for doing this.  You can place a handful of graham crackers in a ziploc bag, seal the bag, and roll over them with a rolling pin,  you can also chop them with a food chopper, you can process them in a food processor…whatever works best for you.

4.  Cover a baking sheet with a piece of wax paper.

5. Take each marshmallow and dip in chocolate (or you can spoon your chocolate over your marshmallow to ensure that it doesn’t fall off the stick).  Make sure to pay special attention to the area of the stick where the stick enters the marshmallow.  This will keep the marshmallow from spinning around later.

6.  Roll each chocolate dipped marshmallow in graham cracker crumbs.  You can also spoon them over the marshmallow to keep the chocolate from sticking to the other graham cracker crumbs.

7.  Once your marshmallows are covered in chocolate and graham cracker, sit them on the wax paper baking sheet and allow them to set.  If you’re in a hurry, you can pop them in the freezer for a few minutes to help the chocolate set more quickly!

I will warn you that these are seriously addicting and caused me to jump fall off the gluten-free bandwagon.  I’m pretty sure I ate at least a dozen of these over the course of a day! (If any of you knows of any really good gluten free graham crackers, please let me know).
