I am so excited to be here at I heart Naptime today! I’m Leigh Anne from Your Homebased Mom and I’m all about finding the pretty and delicious in life and sharing it with all of you! I think today’s treat is both pretty and delicious.

This time of year I am always on the lookout for a fun new food gift idea for the holidays. If you are like we are there are lots of people on your holiday list that you’d like to give just a little token of holiday cheer to without spending a lot of money.

Last week I was standing in line at the local craft store and was checking out all the fun little treats they like to tempt you with while you wait in line when I saw a S’more on a Stick. I instantly fell in love and decided I could make my own version at home. And so I did! And you can to!!

S’mores on a Stick

Ingredients

  • graham crackers
  • marshmallows
  • chocolate chips
  • crushed up candy cane
  • chocolate jimmies
  • miniature marshmallows

Instructions

  1. Break your graham crackers into squares and cut your large marshmallows in half.
  2. After your chocolate is melted you need to glue your marshmallows down to the graham cracker by dipping the marshmallow into the chocolate. It’s your glue! Glue down both halves of the marshmallow.
  3. Next you need to glue in your stick. Dip the end of the stick into the chocolate and then insert between the two marshmallows and allow to harden.
  4. I poured my melted chocolate into a pie plate so that I had plenty of flat surface to dip into. You want a wide, shallow container.
  5. After your glue job has set you are ready to dip the graham cracker into the chocolate. I dip the back side in first.
  6. Turn it over and dip the front in. You may need to use a spoon to fill in the chocolate a bit if it doesn’t cover totally. Tap it gently to remove excess chocolate.
  7. Before the chocolate sets up sprinkle with your topping of choice. Maybe some candy cane.
  8. Lay them onto wax paper to set up and harden.

Of course you will need some graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate. I also threw in some crushed up candy cane, chocolate jimmies and minature marshmallows for fun!

Break your graham crackers into squares and cut your large marshmallows in half.

I like to use the Wilton Melts because they melt easily and smoothly in the microwave. I used both white and milk chocolate. After your chocolate is melted you need to glue your marshmallows down to the graham cracker by dipping the marshmallow into the chocolate. It’s your glue!

Glue down both halves of the marshmallow.

So you may notice that my marshmallows are a little wrinkly. My bag of marshmallows was a little old. Buy a fresh bag of marshmallows!!
Next you need to glue in your stick. Dip the end of the stick into the chocolate and then insert between the two marshmallows and allow to harden.

Or chocolate jimmies!

Lay them onto wax paper to set up and harden.

If you are in a hurry you can put them in the refrigerator and they will harden faster.

I added a little ribbon to the stick to dress them up a bit.

Add a little plastic bag (available in the cake decorating section of the craft store) over your S’more on a Stick, tie with a piece of ribbon and you are ready for gift giving season!

Enjoy finding the pretty and delicious in your day!

    Hi!! I love this idea! I was just wondering where you find the mini marshmallows you used. I live in Ontario and have been looking for those forever! Thanks :)
