Sweets Week: S’more on a Stick

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Happy Sweets Week, y’all!

And more importantly, Happy Valentine’s Day!

Since I largely missed out on the festivities of Soup Week because I was in Israel, I was SO thrilled that I could get to work with my favorite cooks to fill your houses with little treats for loved ones.

If you’re like me, sometimes you have hours to dedicate to actioning all manner of baking and sometimes you’re left with minutes.

Today’s treat is one that will fit comfortably into the latter category.

You see, I planned a Toothpick Potluck for my department today.  Which means that everything being served has to be served on a stick.  Retrospectively, we probably could have re-named it State Fair Potluck, but I didn’t want everyone to be deep-frying everything.  You know?

Anyhow, since this potluck fell in the middle of the week, I knew that anything I made would have to be a night-before-sort of thing.

I bring to you, S’more on a Stick.

05 Stick

I was not kidding.

What you’ll need: Semi-sweet chocolate chips, graham crackers and jumbo marshmallows.

01 Ingredients

Oh, and some toothpicks (or cake-pop sticks or whatever).   This is profanely simple and straightforward.

What I’ll need for you to do: Crush the graham crackers (I did mine using an immersion blender) and melt the chocolate chips.

Personally, I microwave my chips or melt them on the stove in a pot over medium-low heat.  Yes, I realize that doing that whole double-boiler black magic-thing is supposedly “better” but (1) I don’t have that set-up and (2) this is really easier if you have the ability to watch your chocolate chips melt so that you can fend-off burning.

Because pretty much two minutes later, you’ll have the melted chocolate-arrangement you were hoping for.

From here, you will toothpick each of your marshmallows and get dipping.  Spooning the melted chocolate over your marshmallows is going to be easier and will yield a better “crust.”  So do that.

02 Chocolate

Once you’ve covered your marshmallow in chocolate, plop it in the middle of the graham cracker crumbs and spoon the crumbs over the marshmallow.

03 Graham Crackerws

No, you wont contaminate all of your graham cracker crumbs with blobs of chocolate.  So put that thought far from your mind.

From there, you’ll pop a toothpick into the top (chocolate-covered end) and slide the other toothpick out of the bottom of the s’more.  This is the part of the s’more that will sit on the tin foil while it cools and sets.

From there,  transfer it to the baking sheet.

Repeat.

04 Tray

Allow the s’mores to cool (I just left my baking sheets in the garage since it’s wintertime) and serve when the mood strikes.

Seriously.  How easy is that?!

  5. A Toothpick Potluck is sheer brilliance! As a s’mores connoisseur, I must say that nothing will elicit more smiles at your potluck than s’mores on a stick.

  6. What a great concept for an office potluck. I’m going to have to suggest that at my workplace! Love this idea….though for me….I’d like to have about a dozen lined up on a skewer! Happy Sweet Week!

  7. This is totally epic! I love s’mores. Probably more than one person should, but who’s judging? I seriously can’t wait to try!

  8. Brilliant!
    That’s quite the line-up for Sweets Week! All the recipes sound delish. I think I’m going to bookmark this post so I have the link handy when I need a new recipe.

  9. Great idea. Thank you for sharing. Unfortunately, I have two ladies that have given up sweets for Lent. I bet I can convince them after Easter.

    Peace Woman!
