Happy S’mores Day! What’s that? You didn’t know? It’s okay. After all, I’m two days early.
[That's certainly a first.]
Last summer I learned that August 10 is National S’mores Day. Right away, I decided to make a big deal about this holiday next summer – which would be this summer. So for the past few months, I’ve been building up to the big day by trying and sharing the tastiest s’mores recipes I could find.
This weekend, I made the easiest of all the s’mores recipes I’d bookmarked, tagged or otherwise marked as must-try. Marshmallow S’mores Pops (which I first spotted on Gimme Some Oven) take three ingredients and about 10 minutes to make, and the result is a sweet shot of pure, sugary s’mores goodness.
For a quick treat for the kids or a simple snack for the picnic, give these a try.
Marshmallow S’mores Pops
* 1 bag large marshmallows
* 1 package Hershey chocolate chips
* 1 package graham crackers
Melt the chocolate chips. Using a toothpick, skewer or (preferably) lollipop stick as a handle, dip the marshmallows in the melted chocolate and then roll in the graham crackers.
That’s really all there is to it! I told you it was easy.
Out of all the s’mores recipes I’ve tried, I believe the cookie s’mores bar was my favorite. But I must tell you that my friend Amanda said my s’mores cupcakes were the best cupcakes she’d ever tasted. Or something like that.
Do you like s’mores-flavored dishes? What’s your favorite?
P.S. Look for one more fun s’mores post next week! I’d love to hear your old-fashioned s’mores memories and stories then!
