Heart Shaped S’mores Pops

smoresnewmainR

I am completely unprepared for Valentine’s Day.  I feel like I have been sick since the beginning of January.  My family recently came down with the flu-like virus that is going around, and it just won’t leave.  I am looking forward to celebrating next week and hopefully all of this will be behind us!  My daughter is 9 years old, and gets super excited.  She wants to make Valentine’s Day crafts, cards, and treats, for weeks before the big day. 😀  One of her favorite Valentine’s Day treats is something her and I came up with 2 years ago.  S’mores on a stick in the shape of a heart.  You can’t beat treats on a stick, right?  It took us a little while to get it the way we wanted, but we were thrilled when it was done.  It is a fun and scrumptious treat for anyone you love, including yourself. 😉

I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day next week, and that you make this delicious treat on a stick part of your day!

Also, try my Chocolate Cashew-Peanut Butter Hearts!

S'mores Pops

16 pops

S'mores Pops

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. milk chocolate chips
  • 8 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
  • 16 graham cracker squares (have additional on hand, because some may break)
  • 16 large marshmallows
  • 16 lollipop sticks
  • Cut the graham crackers into heart shapes. Use a sharp heart shaped cutter (a metal fondant cutter works well). Press the cutter firmly on the cracker, and then carefully remove the cut graham cracker, so it doesn't break. Place your heart-shaped graham crackers aside.
  • Place the marshmallows on lollipop sticks and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place everything where you will be working with the chocolate.
  • I use a mixture of semisweet and milk chocolate, because I like cutting the sweetness of the chocolate a bit, while still getting that milk chocolate flavor.
  • Place 2/3 of the chocolate chips in a double broiler over medium heat (don't let the water boil underneath). Steam or water will seize up the chocolate. Melt the chocolate and stir as needed. Once melted, remove from the heat and stir in the remaining chocolate chips. This will help temper the chocolate. Place back on the double broiler and keep at a very low temperature, so there is no steam. You are ready to assemble the lollipops.
  • The pops will need to be entirely made one at a time. Dip all but the bottom of the marshmallow in the chocolate, covering well. While holding the pop in one hand, grab a graham cracker and dip one side in chocolate. Stick the chocolate side to the marshmallow. Then hold the pop, so that the cracker doesn't slip off, and drizzle chocolate over the graham cracker for a decoration.
  • Place the pop on the parchment paper, graham cracker side up to harden. Repeat with all other pops. Place out of direct sunlight and away from direct heat for several hours to harden at room temperature.
  • Once the chocolate has hardened, you can stand the pops up for decoration, and/or eat them. Enjoy!
  • Note: Store out of direct sunlight in a sealed container for several days.
  • I am excited to bring our Valentine’s Day creation to Fiesta Friday #210! This week’s lovely hosts are Laurena @ Life Diet Health and Jhuls @ The Not So Creative Cook.

        Thank you Deborah, it has been a long couple of months. Hopefully, it will be over soon. Thank you, they are really tasty. Cutting the crackers is difficult, until you get the hang of it. Happy early Valentine’s Day! 😀

      These could not be more fun Antonia!! I’ll bet your kids loved them! I have a daughter who is a s’mores lover– so I’m sending her the link too. And — sorry you’ve been down with this flu. Isn’t it awful?? And just won’t go away. We were down in January and are still coughing. Hope you have the sweetest Valentines Day with your dear family! xox
