Ever since my melting snowman cookie has been copied all over the place (specifically Cake Central and flickr), and most often without a nod to my invention and in several cases, even claimed by others as their own, I’ve been more paranoid and vigilant about giving credit where credit is due.
I’ve seen these yummy s’mores pops everywhere (specifically, here, here, and most notably, here at gimme some oven). I even posted on the latter, gorgeous s’mores pops on my edible crafts column here. Gimme some oven is one of my fave blogs…fabulous treats and photography, so I encourage all to visit.
how I made s’mores pops (after seeing them elsewhere, did I mention that?)
you will need:
chocolate (I used milk chocolate chips)
metal bowl and saucepan or double boiler
what to do:
Skewer marshmallows and set on baking tray lined with wax paper. Place a few graham crackers (I think I used about five, but add more as needed) in a large Ziploc bag and crush with rolling pin. Pour in a dish (and replace with more as needed). Melt chocolate chips in the metal bowl set over a saucepan with simmering water (do not let the simmering water touch the bottom of the metal bowl) or, melt chips in a double boiler. Holding skewer, dip marshmallow in chocolate to coat. Immediately hold over dish of graham crackers and spoon the graham cracker crumbs over the marshmallow to coat. Place on baking tray (one side will be a little flat because of this, but I didn’t mind.) When you have finished with all the marshmallows, place in the fridge to harden a couple hours.
note to make more kid friendly:
If kids will be eating these, you may want to replace the skewers with a lollipop stick. This can be done any time, even after the pops are ready to eat. (The sharp end of the skewer is useful for piercing the marshmallow nicely, but has ouch potential.)
