Inspired by my sister-in-law, Holleigh, to make marshmallow pops with sugar- sprinkles, I changed my mind when I saw the box of graham crackers in my pantry.
I thought I made up this great new recipe idea for chocolate covered marshmallows coated with crushed graham crackers on a stick!
I thought wrong...it's been done before! Probably a million times, according to the my web search! Oh well.
This is how it went....for me.
I melted two cups of Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips in a double-broiler, my version...a glass bowl sitting on top of a pan of boiling water.
Stir the chocolate until smooth.
Do not lick the spoon, you will need it!
My little angel, Sophia, helped demonstrate how to put a stick in a marshmallow.
Those hands makes my heart melt!
She is really concentrating on doing it just right!
She's only 2 and already cooking with me...yeah!
I coated the end of the stick with chocolate, put them on a cookie sheet, and popped them in the refrigerator for a 10-15 minutes until the chocolate hardened. [The chocolate helps keep the marshmallow firmly on the stick.]
Once the marshmallow is dipped in chocolate, roll in crushed graham crackers.
Roll the sides and the top in the crackers.
Roll several times until the chocolate is fully covered.
Prop the ends of the sticks in Styrofoam or lay them flat on a cookie sheet and place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes until the chocolate has hardened.
No Campfire Needed for these smores!
My kids loved them, I didn't get to have one as they only lasted for 15 seconds before they were swiped up and eaten.
There's always next time!
