S'mores on a Stick, Two Ways | Christening Favors

From our Evening Christening Party Shoot, here are two variations of the classic campfire treat brought to you on a stick (doesn’t everything taste better on a stick?). Both recipes are easy to put together, can be made a day ahead of time, and make a fantastic treat or favor to share with your loved ones:

Golden Grahams S’mores on a Stick

8 cups Golden Grahams cereal
5 cups miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup light corn syrup
5 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup miniature marshmallows, if desired
Lollipop sticks
Small treat bags
Twine or ribbon

Measure cereal into large bowl. Butter 13×9-inch pan. In large microwavable bowl, microwave 5 cups marshmallows, the chocolate chips, corn syrup and butter uncovered on High 2 minutes to 3 minutes 30 seconds, stirring after every minute, until melted and smooth when stirred. Stir in vanilla.

Pour over cereal; quickly toss until completely coated. Stir in 1 cup marshmallows.

Press mixture evenly in pan, using buttered back of spoon. Let stand uncovered at least 1 hour, or refrigerate if you prefer a firmer bar. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 2 rows (or any configuration you desire) to create a narrow rectangle shape. Insert lollipop stick into one end of the bar, place in a bag & tie with twine.

Chocolate Dipped S’mores on a Stick

Graham crackers
Large marshmallows
1 cup milk chocolate chips
2 teaspoons shortening
Lollipop sticks
Small treat bags
Twine or ribbon

Combine chocolate chips and shortening in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on High for 1 minute, remove and stir. Replace bowl in microwave and cook on 50% power for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. If you’re getting pieces that will not melt, microwave again on 50% power for @ 15 seconds and stir again. Be very careful, as you do not want your chocolate to scorch.

Heat oven to broil. Place marshmallows on an oven-safe wire cooling rack, and put them in the oven, about 4″ from broiler. Watch carefully: when the marshmallows begin to brown, pull them out, turn them and place them back in the oven to continue toasting. Repeat until marshmallows are toasted all the way around.

Break each Graham cracker into 4 small pieces. Spread a small amount of melted chocolate mixture on one cracker. Place a toasted marshmallow on the melted chocolate, spread chocolate on another cracker and place it on top of the marshmallow to create a sandwich. When your s’mores are made, place a lollipop stick into the marshmallow and dip the top end in your melted chocolate. Set on wax paper to cool. When completely cool, place in a bag & tie with twine or ribbon.
