S'more Pops

I am not a mother who bakes. Let me rephrase that: I am not a mother who bakes well. Unlike cooking, where I can taste and alter and fuss around, baking is all about following directions. And following directions? Not something I excel at. Plus, who has the time for things like proper cooling? Not me.

The desserts I like to make are insanely easy, but still impressive. It’s best for everyone that way. Yesterday, I saw a picture of s’more pops. Marshmallows, dipped in melted chocolate and covered in crushed graham crackers? Even I could handle that, I thought.

Today, I made them and they are every bit as adorable and delicious as I had hoped. Plus, they take all of five minutes to whip up, which is pretty much all I can handle these days.

If you’re an inadequate baker, too, I suggest you try them. Here’s how:

Melt milk chocolate in the microwave (30 seconds at a time, for about thee minutes, stirring in between.) Crush graham crackers. Stick marshmallows on some sort of stick. I used paper straws because I had them in the house. Dip in chocolate, coat in the crushed graham crackers and stick upright in a cup to cool in the fridge. That’s it.

After the graham cracker, we moved on to whatever other toppings we had on hand. Next time, I may even go all crazy and dip them in colored white chocolate.

Who’s coming over for dessert?

    Those are freakishly awesome! I want them for MYSELF! Ok, maybe I will make them the next time we are at a bbq that has kids…and adults who like marshmallows.

    Oh, wow…talk about easy enough while looking like I put some effort into it!

    I do believe after these, my ranking will go through the roof with my nieces.

    These are my favorites to make for school birthdays, only with sprinkles instead of graham crackers. They’re easy and everyone thinks you’re super mom for making them!!

    I love this simple recipe! I would have to make these in moderation. I have kids who like to help themselves (which is nice to a point) and one child who likes to have her own stock pile of candies and what not in her room.

    Thanks for sharing. I’m just might make red white and blue for 4th of july!

    Allison @ Motherhood, WTF? says

    I’m so making these! They involve all of my favorite things: easy as hell, inexpensive, involves ingredients I have on hand. I picture a party where I hand a bucket of these to all the children with the direction to make themselves scarce. Perfect!

    I had high hopes for this recipe, until I got to the “melt chocolate in the microwave” part. Did you know it’s possible to screw up the simple task of melting chocolate in the microwave? It is.

    I’m out.
