S'more Pops

When I made moon pies, I only made twelve pies and still had a lot of homemade marshmallow left. I thought about experimenting with the freshly whipped leftover marshmallow. Decision! Decision! I decided to make s'more pops.
These s'more pops are super cute. I used bamboo skews but lollipop sticks, appetizer sticks, or other types of bamboo skews will work as well.

I've used different molds to make pop shapes. I also cut the marshmallows into square.  Be creative with the pop designs. Remember they will taste great no matter what they look like because they are something sweeter after all.

S'more pops
makes 24 or more
non-stick cooking spray
Maple Syrup Marshmallow (leftover from Moon Pie recipe or freshly whipped)
confectioners' (or powdered) sugar for dusting
melted chocolate (leftover from Moon Pie recipe or melted 10 oz chocolate chips in a double boiler)
5 to 10 honey graham crackers, crumbled (New Morning)
  1. Spray a mini cupcake or cake pop pan with non stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Place a non stick mat or a parchment paper on a baking tray.
  3. With whipped marshmallow in the piping bag, pipe the marshmallow into each cavity of cupcake or cake pop pan.
  4. Dust the marshmallows with powdered sugar.
  5. Place a dry towel over the marshmallows and let them sits at room temperature to firm up, about one to two hours.
  6. Heat or melt the chocolate, using a double boiler.
  7. Dip the wooden skews or the lollipop sticks into the melted chocolate and stick them into the marshmallows.
  8. Place the marshmallow pops into the fridge until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes. If time is limited, place them in the freezer for about 5 to 10 minutes.
  9. Coarsely crumble the honey graham crackers. Place them on the plate. Set aside.
  10. Take the marshmallow pops out of the refrigerator or the freezer.
  11. Hold the tip of each pop and dip the marshmallow into the melted chocolate.
  12. Sprinkle the crumbled graham crackers right away.
  13. Set the s'more pops onto the prepared baking tray.
  14. Place them in the refrigerator until the chocolate is set, about an hour.
