S'more Pops

Sue and I found these monster sized marshmallows a little while ago and have been wondering what to make with them. They were too cool to just melt down for Rice Krispie Squares or some other such treat. We wanted to show how huge they were!!
S'more recipes are big right now. If you look on the internet for S'more recipes there is a bazillion. S'more cookies, S'more bars, S'more cake, S'more pie, S'more cupcakes.....I think you see where I am going with this.
We came up with this S'more “recipe”. (I put "recipe" in quotations because I don't know if this actually qualifies as a recipe or just assembling 3 ingredients.... you decide!) This is a nice treat for the kids (or for you) that you can make in 2 seconds. Okay, maybe not actually 2 seconds but you see the point I’m trying to make. It’s fast. You can let the kids help out too!
S’more Pops
Melting wafers or chocolate chips
Graham cracker crumbs
Place marshmallow onto craft stick (Lollipop stick), pushing stick halfway into marshmallow to ensure it won’t fall off.
Place chocolate in a microwave safe coffee cup, melt at 20 second intervals – stirring after each 20 seconds, until smooth. Be careful not to overheat.
Pour graham cracker crumbs into a shallow dish or onto a plate with sloping sides.
Holding the skewered marshmallow by the stick, dip halfway into melted chocolate. Carefully shake off excess chocolate back into cup. Roll dipped marshmallow in the graham crumbs.
Let sit for a few minutes to firm up (or pop into fridge for a minute). Enjoy!
You can make this much more decadent by using homemade marshmallows and dark chocolate but, it is still a delicious treat this way!
Quick and easy and tasty....3 things we love in a treat, especially for the kids.
