With all of the wildfires in Montana lately, camping has to be done without a campfire in most locations–which means the old-fashioned smores over a campfire are not happening. So, here is a recipe for smores pops that you can pre-make and bring with you so that you still can have your smores while you’re camping:
Recipe makes 20 pops
- 1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
- 20 marshmallows
- 6 graham crakers, crushed
- 20 lollipop sticks or skewers
- 5 to 6 plastic cups (helps when drying)
Punch small holes, just large enough for the lollipop ticks to slide through, into the bottom of the plastic cups. Turn upside down.
Push 1 marshmallow onto each lollipop stick.
Add chocolate chips to a microwave-safe bowl and heat in the microwave for 20 seconds. After 20 seconds, remove the bowl and stir the chocolate chips. Place the bowl back into the microwave for another 20 seconds and stir again. Repeat process until melted.
Working quickly, dip each marshmallow into the chocolate and sprinkle with crushed graham crackers. Slide the smores pops into the upside down plastic cups prepared earlier to allow the chocolate to harden, about 10 minutes.
