S'mores on a Stick (or Rainy Day S'mores)

Wednesday, September 7, 2011

Since you won't need a fire at all for this fun variation on s'mores, these little treats are perfect for a cold, rainy day (of which we've had a few too many of this week).   My kids adore this at-home version of the marshmallowy treat and much to my own surprise, not being a big fan of the camping version of s'mores myself, I thought they actually tasted pretty good too.   In addition to being very easy (and kid-friendly) to make, I also liked the built-in portion control.  Everyone got one marshmallow, which was  perfect for satisfying their sweet tooth without overdoing it.

The ingredients:

12-16 large marshmallows
1 cup chocolate chips (I preferred semi-sweet)
1/2 package graham crackers, crushed (or lightly crushed Rice Krispies)
Lollipop sticks
(from the craft store) or forks

Directions:
  Skewer large marshmallows with a lollipop stick or fork.    In a microwaveable bowl, heat chocolate chips for two minutes in microwave, stirring every thirty seconds until melted.  Dip the marshmallows into the melted chocolate, and using a spoon, coat the marshmallow thoroughly. Immediately sprinkle with crushed graham crackers (or Rice Krispies).  Place on wax paper or propped up inside of a heavy mug and place in freezer for 10 minutes to set.  Allow to sit at room temperature for about 5 minutes and ENJOY!!!

I've seen these marshmallow smores on Pinterest lately and I always think they look fun. I'm a total chocoholic and smore fan though so I'd definitely have to eat two :)

I like the portion control aspect and these look like a great kid's project.
