Chocolate Covered Marshmallows – “Smore’s Pops”

We love S’mores around here! One of the great joys of the summer is relaxing around a campfire just hanging out with friends. While enjoying that fire – marshmallows toasted (or burnt) to perfection are just right! After enjoying that fire you come inside to head to bed and realize that you now smell like you’ve been camping all week.

Well -FEAR NO MORE… I have your Smoke-Free-S’mores here!

Enjoy these S’mores with S’Less S’moke

Tools & Materials & Ingredients

  • sticks/toothpicks
  • wax paper
  • marshmallows
  • chocolate
  • shortening
  • graham crackers (crushed in a bowl)

Place a toothpick (or pop stick or popsicle stick) into the bottom of each marshmallow.

Melt your Chocolate (I use use melting chips) in a small bowl in 30 second intervals at half power, stirring ever 30 seconds. Once it is mostly smooth add at least 1 tablespoon of shortening for every 1/2 cup of melting chips your used. I make sure to use more shortening when coating something soft like marshmallows because you do not want that chocolate “crunch” to your chocolate chip when you have a soft object like marshmallows! You want your chocolate to be nice and smooth and “run” off of the spoon when you mix it up.

Dip each marshmallow into the smoothly melted chocolate and be sure to shake off the excess and/or let it drip for a few moments. Roll the Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow in the Crushed Graham Crackers and place aside on the Wax Paper. REPEAT until you have enough Chocolate Marshmallow S’mores Pops to make everyone happy!

My fantastic fiancee (Rich of Alborn Photography) loves S’mores and couldn’t resist snapping these photos!
