S'mores Pops


For those of you who like dessert on a stick, here's a great idea for you!  Perfect for a quick dessert or snack idea for team sports, your child's class or party!  The presentation on these are beautiful!  Enjoy!
  • 1 bag large marshmallows (I like using the strawberry ones too)
  • 1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package cinnamon or honey graham crackers (about 9 long/large crackers)
  • lollipop sticks (available in cake decorating aisles)
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  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.
