S'mores on a Straw

Busy, busy month! 
We were at Great Wolf Lodge in the Poconos for a long weekend and I haven't stopped running since we got back on Tuesday.  Until now...ahhhh.
So a quick idea before I need to go look at my To Do list again. 

S'mores on a Stick Straw!  I saw the idea here at Skip to My Lou a while back, but I didn't have enough lollipop sticks.  I did have plenty of straws though.  Sorry I didn't take a picture, it was that kind of day, but here's what I did:
  1. Insert straws into marshmallows (I used bendy straws and put the non-bendy part into the marshmallow).
  2. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave-30 secs at 50% power, stir, repeat until melted completely.
  3. Use food processor to crush a couple of graham crackers into crumbs.
  4. Dip marshmallow about halfway into melted chocolate (I scraped the excess chocolate off the bottom of the marshmallow before the next step).
  5. Press bottom of the marshmallow into the graham cracker crumbs.
  6. Set on wax paper to harden (can put in the fridge).
They were a big hit with the preschool crowd yesterday, and we're sooooo easy to make!  It's going to be my new go-to kid dessert!


  1. we did this during the holidays w/ crushed up peppermint candy - so delicious. I got the idea at AC Moore, they had a demo table. The kids loved it. Since then, we have twice had a table full of kids "make their own" and aside from their messy faces, it was a hit! Dessert and activity all in one.
