20 Large Marshmallows (Stuffing them could be easier if you go for the Jumbo campfire sized ones)
1 & 1/3 Cup of baking chocolate (I used Hershey's Milk Chocolate Baking Chips)
1/4 or 1/3 Cup of Vegetable Oil (depending on the consistency you want)
5 Graham crackers
20 Lollipop Sticks
Time out of Your Life: About 1 hour
First, you will need to put sticks into all of the marshmallows that you want to cover. Be sure not to twist the stick to get it inside of the marshmallow. This creates a gap and makes the marshmallow to fall off the stick while you are dipping them.
Then you will make your chocolate dip. I did this by putting the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heating them for 10 seconds, stirring, then repeating until I had the desired consistency. You don't want it to be too melted & liquid or it will not coat properly. It should be fairly thick, but all the way melted. After that, add vegetable oil until you reach the desired consistency. Once the mixture is complete, take your marshmallow sticks and hold them over the chocolate bowl, using a spoon to drizzle the chocolate until completely covered. Important: Let as much excess chocolate drip off as possible!! If there is a lot of chocolate on the marshmallow, both the chocolate and the graham cracker crumbles will fall right off. You can even tap the stick against the top of the bowl a couple times to make sure all of the excess has dripped off. Now to the finale: graham cracker crumbles!
(ignore the Oreo's in the background, they are not part of the recipe... I just have a weakness for them...)
To make the graham cracker crumbles, just take about 5 graham crackers, and smash them up!! Have some stress you need to release? Put those crackers into a Ziploc and push them into the counter! Or you can do it the way I did: put them in a bowl and use the bottom of a drinking glass to crush them into tiny crumbs. Just be sure they are very well beaten, whichever method you chose! If the crumbles are too big, they will just fall off of the pop. Next you will dip your chocolate covered marshmallow into your graham cracker bowl. Make sure to cover all of the sides, if you're going for the ones I made. You can always twist it around however you want, maybe just dip the top and leave the sides plain chocolate! As always, it's up to you. I'm just sharing my adventures in baking :)
And... Voila! The hard parts done :) Now all you have to do is put them in the refrigerate for 20-30 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened, then bring them out and enjoy! I found that placing them on a baking sheet provided enough room for all of them, and I did not need wax paper or any kind of non-stick spray. As long as they were completely covered in the crumbles, there was no room for the chocolate to stick, and they came right off.
So enjoy! Put them in a cute vase and make them a center piece for a dinner or dessert party. They'd be great with colored chocolate for baby showers or any type of birthday party. Have fun with them, just be sure to EAT ALL OF THEM!
Side note: They may melt if left out in a warmer house for too long. I made them at a friend's house and had to refrigerate them after we ate a couple because the chocolate began to melt. However, my husband forgot to put them in the fridge when we got home and they were not melted at all when I found them on the table in the morning. I guess it just depends on how freezing cold your house is (like ours!!)
