I made some S'mores Pops for a fundraiser this week but I wanted to make an additional pop of some sort to sell alongside them. I had found an alternate take on the pops on Pinterest that involved putting a marshmallow on a stick, dipping it in chocolate and rolling it in crushed graham crackers. I think I have mentioned before that I am not a big fan of s'mores because I don't like marshmallows. (Un-American, I admit.) But I LIVE for the sweet and salty snack. And since everything is all about me (please note the sarcasm) I got the wheels turning and came up with the beauty above.
Have you seen these guys?
They are a bit smaller than baseballs and while they are way to big for s'mores they are great for snacking and PERFECT for this project.
These pops are simple. First, I melted just a few white chocolate chips. Then I dipped the stick into the melt and planted it into the marshmallow. (The white chocolate "glues" the stick into the marshmallow.) Next, I dipped the marshmallow into melted chocolate and rolled it in a combination of crushed pretzels and fall colored sprinkles.
Let me tell ya, these things rock. And this is coming from someone who could do without Marshmallows. But the sweetness of the mallow coupled with the salty crunchy pretzels then backed up by a chocolate kick? It's the perfect candy marriage.
And since it's the S'mores time of year I thought I would share this ingenius product wtih you.
I used these to make the S'mores pops this time and I will never use a regular marshmallow again. These are fabulous! Why did it take so long for someone to come up with a flat marshmallow for s'mores? Just as good as sliced bread in my book.
Have a great weekend!
