BFFF’s Toasted Campfire S’more Pops

Ingredients:

Yields 30 Marshmallow Pops

(1) Package of 6 inch Wilton Cookie Pop Sticks (only $1.99)

(1) 28 oz bag of Campfire Marshmallows

(1)  box of graham cracker crumbs

(1) 12 oz bag of semi sweet chocolate chips

(2) Tablespoons of Crisco

(1) Sheet of wax paper

(1) Chef’s Torch / Creme Brulee Torch

Directions:




  • Insert one stick into the middle of each marshmallow.  Helpful tip, place your hand on top of the marshmallow while inserting your stick to ensure it  does not exceed breaking through the top of your marshmallow.
  • Using a chef’s torch / creme brulee torch, caramelize each marshmallow 5-8 seconds, working the torch around the marshmallow.  Caution, do not do this near any in-flammables. You may also use the top of your gas stove if you do not have a chef’s torch.
  • Place graham cracker crumbs in a small bowl.
  • In the top of a double boiler, set over simmering water, or in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water, heat half the chocolate and half the shortening, stirring often, until chocolate is melted and chocolate and shortening are combined. Stir until completely smooth. Do not heat the chocolate too much or your chocolate will lose it’s shine after it has dried.  Alternately, you can microwave the same amount of chocolate coating pieces on high at 30 second intervals, stirring until smooth.
  • Quickly dip each caramelized Marshmallow half way into the melted chocolate, swirling quickly to coat it completely. Shake off any excess into the melted chocolate.
  • Immediately after dipping in chocolate, dip each caramelized marshmallow coated with chocolate into your bowl of graham cracker crumbs and set directly on wax paper.
  • After you have dipped all caramelized marshmallows in chocolate and graham cracker crumbs,  repeat dipping each marshmallow in graham cracker crumbs atleast 1-2 more times.

    You don’t need the blow torch if you have a gas stove. these are quite fun. I tried out a few and will make the next batch w/o the stix for a grownup bbq.

    Always a hit…. They are great for kids parties! I’ve made them, without toasting, for birthday parties for my kids over the past two years. I usually serve them in an ivy bowl, filled with m&ms and tied with a pretty ribbon. Must try the toasted version for the next party! Thanks.

    I don’t care for the taste of things toasted with the torch or the gas stove. I like to use an unscented candle when I toast marshmallows in-doors.

    I used the stove top to toast. Easy…used a fork to hold the end and put the sticks in afterwords (that was a little tricky). Put the stick in while on the fork, then used another fork to help slide it off. Oh, and the major difference was I used Campfire’s GIGANTIC marshmallow. HUGE. Drizzled a little bit of the melted chocolate on them and sprinkled some more marshmallow crumbs over that. After taste testing went into a sugar coma.
