S’mores on a StickJulieVR
How totally cute are these? I got the idea from my friend Jan, who is a party planner and blog writer and mom, and comes up with great ideas like these. Not only did I not have to turn the oven on, I made a few dozen in under five minutes. These will no doubt be on the menu at a certain sixth birthday party later this summer. What kid (or grown-up) doesn’t adore food on a stick, especially when it’s a marshmallow dipped in chocolate?
To make s’mores on a stick you’ll need a bag of big marshmallows (or you could make them yourself, if you want to get all Martha about it), and some bamboo skewers.
Heat up a half cup of heavy cream, take it off the heat and stir in a cup or two of chocolate chips – measurements don’t need to be accurate here. Let it sit until the chocolate melts, then stir until smooth. Dip your marshmallows, holding them by their sticks.
Have a shallow dish of graham crumbs ready and dip them again – this completes the s’mores effect. You could of course do jimmies or sprinkles or chopped nuts or cookie crumbs to change things up. Set them stick-up on a platter or piece of waxed paper.
Let them sit at room temperature or refrigerate until set. (Of course, there’s no rule against serving them while the chocolate is still melty, either.)
