S’mores Pop

S’mores Pop ~ No bonfire required. These S’mores Pop were toasted on the open flame of a stove top then dipped in dark chocolate and rolled in some crushed graham cracker.

These were a fun and quick dessert I threw together for me and my little guy, Cole. The kid is fascinated by fire. Uh-oh! He is especially curious about my flame torch that he saw me use on some creme brulee and begged me to use it again.

Well, without any desserts that needed torching and under a highly supervised eye, we roasted marshmallows over a stovetop flame. He loved it-the fire, whole process of watching it go from lightly golden-the fire, to carmelize—did I mention the fire. . . . my little pyromaniac.

When the fire fun was over we sat down and ate these while watching his favorite cartoon The Avengers. It was the best Friday night I’ve had in awhile . . . psst, when I was a kid the movie Fire Starter was one of my favorites—wierd what you can pass on to your kid.  

No recipe for this dessert. Just a few notes:

  • You will need a bag of jumbo marshmallows, crushed graham crackers and some melted chocolate.
  • You can of course make these without roasting the marshmallows, but really, marshmallows taste so much carmelized.
  • Assembly: Stick a popsicle stick in one end and slowly turn the marshmallow 1/2 inch above the flame until golden. Dip the roasted marshmallow in melted chocolate and then roll it in crushed graham crackers. That’s it – enjoy!

    Wasn’t everyone obsessed with fire at that age? No? Oh well. :-/

    In all seriousness, these look fantastic… there are a few things from your childhood that just never get old. And s’mores are one of them.

    This is amazing. I can’t wait to have a bonfire and do these “fake smores”. Real smores are too messy, but these are perfect!

    SUCH A GOOD IDEA! There have been a lot of smore cupcakes posted lately, but I like the idea of this better- much quicker and thereby more gratifying. This would be really fun to make with my son too (although I think 13 months is a little early to start dealing with an open flame;) Thanks for the inspiration!

    Oh I love this idea – but I don’t have a stove-top to use.
    When I was younger I would roast marshmallows on a candle flame, but I’ve heard that its pretty damn unhealthy – any creative suggestions for was I could roast my marshmallows?

    sometimes my husband doesnt “get” blogs, but your converted him. The popsicle series really got his attention. He thinks we should make one a week until we have tried them all. So I am backtracking and I find these…I think this is what I am going to try FIRST! I like this idea a LOT!!!

    PS, we were latchkey kids, and pyros. It would hack mom off when she’d get home from work and somehow know we had roasted marshmallows on the stove… We couldn’t figure it out. I thought she counted the marshmallows…as a kid it never occurred to me that the smell of scorched mallow had a tendency to linger, LOL. Brought back a fond memory =)
