S'mores On A Stick
Like we need another reason to love s'mores!
If you have not had the chance to make homemade marshmallows, you must, sometime in your life! I have been making this recipe for years now. These are made with honey instead of corn syrup, so they have a wonderful floral flavor. Who doesn't love food on a stick!? It just makes eating more fun! This way you can have a s'more without the bonfire or mess.
If you don't have homemade marshmallows, don't worry, you can use store-bought. These are all the classic flavors of the beloved s'more in a really fun presentation. If you are using homemade marshmallows, the trick to getting the perfect s'more-on-a-stick is to get the marshmallows really cold by placing them in the freezer before dipping. Another little trick is to add coconut oil to the chocolate to make it thinner for dipping. You can use candy coating chocolate in this, but if you don't have it around you don't need to go out of your way to get it. The process is simple! Dip a skewer into some of the melted chocolate and stick it into the center of the marshmallow. Then, dip the marshmallow into the chocolate, let the excess drip off, and dip it into crushed up graham crackers. Let these set up for a little bit in the fridge and then serve!
These are really fun for a summer party, AND also something to keep in mind for the winter time. These s'mores-on-a-stick would be so fun for a hot chocolate bar!
S'mores On A Stick
1 bag large marshmallows, or homemade marshmallows (recipe on www.MariaProvenzano.com)
1 10oz bag dark chocolate chips; or any kind of chocolate you like; or you can use candy coating chocolate
1 tablespoon coconut oil; only use if you aren't using candy coating chocolate
1 1/2 cups crushed up graham crackers
skewers; number will depend on how many marshmallows you plan to dip
*If you are using homemade marshmallows, cut them into the desired size, and place them in the freezer for at least 10 minutes before dipping
*Crumble the graham crackers into very small pieces, and place in a shallow bowl
*Line a baking sheet or large plate with wax paper
*Place a glass bowl over a pot of simmering water, making sure the water isn't touching the bowl (aka a double boiler)
*Place 3/4 of the chocolate into the bowl with the coconut oil, and stir until melted with a spatula
*Turn the heat off once melted
*Dip the pointed part of a skewer into the melted chocolate, and then stick into the top of a marshmallow; it should go almost all the way to the bottom of the marshmallow
*Dip the marshmallow into the melted chocolate so that it is covered about 3/4 of the way; it helps to use a spatula to move the chocolate around the marshmallow
*Allow the excess chocolate to drip off
*Place the chocolate dipped marshmallow into the crumbled graham crackers
*Place onto the wax paper
*Repeat with the rest of the marshmallows
*Add more chocolate and/or coconut oil to the melted chocolate if it starts to thicken or seize up
*Once all of the marshmallows are dipped, place them in the fridge to set up for about 10 minutes and serve!
*If you make really large homemade marshmallows this could make about 10-15 or if you use store-bought you should be able to do close to the entire bag. The amount yielded will depend on the size of the marshmallows
