When it's summertime in Arizona, we're always looking for fun indoor activities to do with the kids. This one is quick and easy, and quite tasty. (I can't take credit for the invention - I got the idea from my brother, who got it from my niece, who found it online.) After we made these I did look it up and found many variations on the recipe. But this is how we made them:
You need the same basic ingredients that you use for regular s'mores - graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate. (I substituted chocolate chips for the typical chocolate bars because I think they tend to melt better.) Plus you'll need some type of sticks. We used lollipop sticks, found in the candy-making section of Walmart.
One minute in the microwave melts the chocolate perfectly. (No need for the double boiler, or any of the other more complicated methods you might read about.)
Crush the graham crackers using your preferred method. (I favor the Ziploc/hammer technique.)
When you open the marshmallows, don't forget the most important step in the process - do a taste test to make sure they are top quality. :)
Once you are satisfied that your marshmallows are up to your standards, insert a stick into each one. (I simply put the marshmallows out on a cookie sheet and let the kids poke in the sticks.)
and then dip it into the crushed graham crackers.
And there you have it! A tasty treat, and some happy kids.
