Today: Stick it.

You’re either going to thank me or curse me for this one, but honestly, I couldn’t keep this dessert to myself.  S’mores.  On a stick.  Yes, really.  I love coming up with really good/really bad ideas.

It will take you no longer than 5 minutes to whip up a few of these little guys, and you’ll only need four simple ingredients, including the stick.  Break out the marshmallows, dark chocolate, and graham crackers.  A few easy steps and boom!  You’re the most popular person in the room.

  1. Grind down graham crackers in your food processor (or crush them by hand, or with a rolling pin, in a plastic bag)
  2. Melt dark chocolate and stir
  3. Stick your marshmallows… on a stick
  4. Dip the ‘mallows into piping hot melted chocolate and roll in crushed graham crackers
  5. Set on a parchment-lined baking sheet and cool in the refrigerator before serving
I brought a batch to the Cape this weekend for my family’s 2nd of July celebration (they travel well in a vase), and a second batch for our post-race 4th of July cookout today.  If I could justify making a third batch for tomorrow, I would.  I’m working on it.
We had a fabulous Fourth– a great (hot and sweaty) race at Patriot Place, lots of pool time and cooking out at my parents’ house, gorgeous weather, and fabulous company… complete with Clark’s favorite pug, Murphy :).  I can’t think of a better way to celebrate America’s birthday.  I wish it could be summer forever.

  1. OOOH! Those smores on a stick look delicious! I think you should whip up a batch and bring them to the Food Swap this weekend 😉

    1. 🙂 I am hoping to make it to a food swap soon– such a fun idea! Unfortunately, I can’t make it this weekend, but I have a feeling these s’mores will be making many appearances this summer! Hope you had a great 4th!

  2. I can totally see taking this to the next family gathering! Thanks so much for the great idea!
