How to make s’mores on a stick!
s’mores on a stick
I’m a s’mores nut. Not so much eating s’mores, but clever interpretations of the original. These s’mores on a stick are just a twist on an existing idea. I’ve even made s’mores pops before. And “self-reflective” s’mores pops(ie how-to-make-s’mores instructions drawn on jumbo marshmallow pops).
So to keep the s’mores alive, I give you some more s’mores on a stick. This time a little closer to actual s’mores, minus the flame.
how to make s’mores on a stick
you will need:*
*Find the lollipop sticks and decorating bags at the craft store.
1. Line a tray with wax paper. Break apart graham crackers into 4 rectangles and place wrong-side-up.
2. Dab a paper towel in Crisco or shortening and grease the serrated knife and the ends of your lollipop sticks. This is optional, but it really does help things along quite a bit. Cut a marshmallow in half crosswise with the knife and skewer with a lollipop stick.
3. Pour some chocolate chips in a disposable decorating bag (about 1/2 cup), fold the top of the bag, and melt in the microwave at 30 percent power for 1 minute, then 30 percent power at 30 second intervals, kneading the bag occasionally, until the chips are completely melted.
4. Snip about 1/4 inch from the tip of the bag. Pipe two dots of chocolate on a graham cracker rectangle. Place the skewered marshmallows on top. Pipe two more dots of chocolate on top of the marshmallows. Top with another rectangle. Set aside to set very well, about an hour or more. I put my in the fridge for a bit.

Thanks so much for the idea, it was a hit with my little Activity Day Girls!

Perfect!!! We have bonfires all the time and I always groan with having to manage the juggling of all the s'mores makings and avoiding our sneaky dogs in the dark. To make them ahead like this one time would be fun!

These look absolutely amazing! I cannot wait to try these out!
We made the S'more pops as favors for my son's birthday party, they were a hit. Thanks for sharing. I've linked with this post on my blog, you can find the post here: https://beanbugcrafts.blogspot.com/2011/10/smore-much-fun-continued.html
I found this idea fantastic. I only have one question: Do you or anyone who has made these before know how long they stay fresh? I wanted to make these for my son’s birthday but I don’t know if I will have enough time on the day before or day of. If anyone has any advice, suggestions or simply knows the answer, please post. Thanks!! ^_^
Hi Yaly! I have made these before for a party ahead of time. Marshmallows dry out quickly, so it’s actually best to cover the entire marshmallow with chocolate, if possible, so they last longer. Once mine dried, I put them in a single layer on a piece of parchment in a large, shallow Tupperware container. I believe I put my in the fridge for the chocolate, which will sort of “harden” the marshmallows, but sitting out at the party, they were fine when softened.
Thank you so much!! I will try covering the marshmallows in chocolate instead of just adding a dab. Hopefully they will be as good as they look. ^_^
Any chance I can freeze these ready made ?
Hmmm, probably not. Because of the moisture in marshmallows, I don’t think they would freeze well. If it’s not for an event (ie. not for anything super important) you could give it a go with extras to avoid waste, but I’m thinking they wouldn’t freeze well. You can make them a couple days in advance and keep them in a sealed container though.
