I did something bad. Well, I did something good. Okay, I did something bad for our waistlines, but good for our taste buds. Enter, s’more pops.
I don’t know about you, but the combination of marshmallow, chocolate, and graham cracker shouts summer to me. Does anyone else have a problem with getting this song stuck in their head this summer?
Homemade marshmallow s’more pops are a great way to give the classic flavors a little bit of a gourmet twist (Can we pretend that isn’t really as pretentious of a statement as it sounds? Thanks. Haha.) Really, any food on a stick is just fun, and this way, you don’t have to build a fire or dealing with gooey marshmallow all over.
First, make marshmallows using this recipe (Thanks Martha Stewart!). Don’t be intimidated – homemade marshmallows are surprisingly simple. I guess you could use store-bought marshmallows instead, but it’s just not the same.
While the marshmallows set, melt a cup of dark chocolate (or milk chocolate if that is more your jam), and crunch a sleeve of graham crackers in a food processor or plastic baggie. Once you have cut the marshmallows, insert a wooden skewer into each marshmallow, dipping the skewer in a little bit of white chocolate first (optional) to really make it stick.
Dip each marshmallow into the melted chocolate, and then graham crackers, coating each side, and then place on parchment-covered baking sheet. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 15 minutes. Yep, it is that easy.
What do you think of s’mores? Would you try this twist on a classic?
