I saw this fabulous idea at The Idea Room and that afternoon I went out and bought all of the ingredients! I thought these would be so much fun for our 4th of July BBQ but now that I’ve made them I will definitely be making them for lots of other summer outings.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Marshmallows (you can buy flat ones at Target)
Chocolate for the s’mores
Chocolate for melting and dipping
Start by making the s’mores: graham cracker, chocolate, marshmallow, graham cracker.
Next melt them in the microwave for about 25 seconds.
Then stick them in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
After they have hardened a little remove them from the freezer and insert a popsicle stick. I bought the larger sticks because I didn’t want any of the younger kids to hurt themselves with the smaller ones.
For the kids I melted just marshmallows and then put a stick in them.
Then place the s’mores and/or marshmallows in the freezer for about 30 minutes. While you are waiting for them to freeze melt the remainder of the chocolate in a large bowl for dipping.
Take them out of the freezer and dip them in the the melted chocolate. I didn’t take a picture of this process because it was messy and required both of my hands. 🙂 Once they are dipped place them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Sprinkle with sprinkles, if desired.
Then place them in the freezer. I took mine out of the freezer, and put them in the fridge, a few hours before serving. This way they weren’t so hard and they melted in our mouths: amazing!
The kids loved the chocolate covered marshmallows!
And the adults loved the chocolate covered s’mores! I received so many compliments on them. They are definitely a new summer favorite!!!
