As a little Christmas gift to all of you this year I thought I would share a fun recipe for an awesome treat you can make that is super easy to make and it tastes awesome! It’s also a fun recipe to make with your kids and/or grandkids and you’ll have a blast doing it together. Here’s the recipe:
Chocolate Covered S’more Lollipop Recipe (aka Smore’s on a stick)
What you’ll need:
· 1 box of graham crackers
· 1 bag of big puffy marshmallows
· Chocolate Bars (I like the Symphony chocolate bars the most)
· Melting Chocolates
· Lollipop sticks or wooden popsicle sticks
· Optional: Candy sprinkles, crushed candy cane, toffee, nuts or any other crushed topping
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Lay the graham cracker squares in rows across the cookie sheet. Break the chocolate candy bars into squares and lay a big square or two on each graham cracker. Next place a single big marshmallow on top of each graham cracker (on top of the chocolate squares) and bake in the oven on middle rack for 6 minutes (or until marshmallows have slightly puffed). Remove from the oven and gently lay your lollipop stick flat into each marshmallow and then top the S’more off with another graham cracker, so you have created a lollipop from the S’more. Allow the S’mores to cool for 10 minutes (If you are impatient like I am you can throw them into the freezer to speed the process of cooling).
Once the S’more is completely cooled you take the melting chocolate and melt it over low heat. Now dip the each S’more lollipop into the melted chocolate to coat the entire S’more in chocolate. Tap off the excess chocolate and lay the sucker flat on a roll of wax paper. Next you can sprinkle it with any crushed candies, nuts or sprinkles to make it festive. Finally, allow it to cool completely before individually wrapping each lollipop in clear bags and tying it with a festive ribbon.
(Possible option: If you are feeling adventurous you could try rolling the S’mores in a caramel coating before you roll them in the melted chocolate but I’m not actually sure if doing that will work out because I haven’t been brave enough to attempt it yet…so if any of you take the risk and try it please let me know if it works out 🙂 …I just don’t want to be the guinea pig on ruining a batch…tee hee…)
I hope you enjoy that S’mores on a Stick recipe and even more so I truly hope you all have an amazing Christmas!
MERRY CHRISTMAS from my family to yours!
