A dozen S’mores on a Stick in 15 minutes? Sign us up! This s’mores dessert skips the sticky fingers and turns the number one campfire treat into one you can easily eat! The same beautifully toasted, golden brown marshmallow, the same melty milk chocolate, and the same sweet graham cracker crunch… just with a new look!
S’mores on a Stick
It’s always a bummer when camp or bonfire plans get rained out, but don’t let all of those smores ingredients sit sadly in the pantry.
You can still create a campfire worthy snack indoors– you may even like it better than the original!
After all, s’mores on a stick aren’t messy or time-sensitive. I find these to be a marvelous movie night snack or a great edible craft during sleepovers.
Ingredient Notes and Substitutions
- Marshmallows – There are different flavors of marshmallows nowadays — don’t hesitate to grab your favorite! You’re going to end up with a lot of leftovers.
Make use of them for my chocolate-covered marshmallow pops!
- Graham Crackers – We can’t forget the “bread” in this dessert sandwich! They’ll be crushed up and stuck to the smores on a stick.
I talk about some possible substitutes in the FAQ section below — be sure to check it out!
- Chocolate Melting Wafers – There are so many to choose from! I prefer the milk chocolate wafers, but there are dark chocolate, white chocolate, and vanilla flavors too.
My Top Tips for a Scrumptious S’mores Dessert
- Using the butane torch.
When you’re toasting the marshmallows with the torch, move quickly!
Go from side to side, never heating one spot on the marshmallow for too long, to get a light golden color without burning it.
Or, get that sort of charred, burnt touch by concentrating on one spot for just a few seconds. Be prepared to blow out the flame! These treats catch flame quickly.
- Toasting the marshmallows is optional!
If you can’t get your hands on a torch, or you’d just prefer not to use an open flame at all, that’s totally fine.
This s’mores dessert is still yummy with squishy, untoasted marshmallows.
- What else can you stick on these s’mores on a stick?
There are a lot of household favorites when it comes to smores: peanut butter, cayenne pepper, caramel, and even cheese.
I’d recommend adding small, dry ingredients to the still-melty chocolate — your spicy seasonings, sprinkles, etc.
However, peanut butter and caramel are trickier. I would add a coating of sticky spreads after the chocolate hardens but before rolling in the graham cracker crumbs.
- Play around with colors and themes!
It’s possible to find melting chocolate wafers in other colors: pink, red, green, and so on. They often come with other hints of flavors, too!
So why not play around with themes and colors during the holidays?
A minty green s’mores dessert around St. Patrick’s Day, pink melts dotted with white sprinkles on Valentine’s Day, or alternating green and red chocolate with crushed candy canes during Christmas!
Storing S’mores on a Stick
The other really convenient thing about smores on a stick is that you can actually save the leftovers!
Just place them in a sealed container and store at room temperature for up to 3 days.
It goes without saying, but be sure to keep these somewhere dark and cool so that the chocolate doesn’t begin to melt!
Kitchen Tools You Will Need
- A Cake Pop Stand is extremely helpful for keeping your smores on a stick… well, on the stick!
If you don’t have one, just stick these pops face down on a serving platter with the sticks pointed up.
- Cake Pop Sticks are recommended for skewers.
- A Butane Torch Lighter is the best tool for toasting s’mores on a stick.
S’mores on a Stick FAQ
For traditional campfire roastin’, use roasting sticks made of bamboo or steel-pronged roasting sticks. They’re better than some of the cheaper wooden sticks, which can easily splinter or catch on fire.
But for smores on a stick, we use cake pop sticks! Some other smores cake pop recipes use lollipop sticks.
Good question! You probably guessed, but “s’more” is simply a short way of saying “some more”! The slang can be traced back to the late 1920s in a Girl Scouts book, of all places!
Lots of things! Try crushing up your cookie of choice, as long as it isn’t too soft! Chips Ahoy, Nilla Wafers, Oreos (but not the creme!), and gingerbread cookies are my top recommendations.
Less sweet options include Ritz crackers, saltines, and pretzels. I’ve seen Pringles used to add a little salty crunch!
With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.
