Marshmallow Pops

Do you ever find yourself in a pinch for a quick and easy dessert to take to a get-together that looks like you’ve slaved away all day long?

I did this week and let me tell you, these Marshmallow Pops were the fastest, easiest, most fun dessert I have made for a party and everyone was super impressed. What the party guests didn’t know, was that I threw them together in less than 20 minutes on the cheap!

With a few key tools and a little creativity, you can be ready to take these delicious morsels to your next gathering!

Marshmallow Pops

Ingredients
– 1 bag of marshmallows (regular size, not mini or jumbo)
– 2 colors of melting chocolate (or more if you want to get really fancy!)
– 1 bag of lollipop sticks
– Optional: sprinkles

Directions
– Melt chocolate using directions on the bag.
– Dip a lollipop stick in a small amount of the melted chocolate and place into a marshmallow.
– Continue “lolli-popping” all of your marshmallows, keeping in mind that the color you use to adhere the stick will be the color you will submerge with. (I.e. Yellow stick = yellow base color)

– After the chocolate has set, adhering the stick to the marshmallow, dip the marshmallows in a cup full of melting chocolate and tap off the excess. Place on a wax paper-lined baking sheet or push stick upright into a block of floral foam.
Note: if using sprinkles, roll chocolate-covered marshmallow pop in sprinkles until covered.
– When base color has dried, drizzle melted chocolate in your second color over the pops.

What do you think? I think the sprinkle pops were my favorite, but the drizzling looks adorable too. Share these with friends, or make them for the next birthday party you get roped into attending. These are sure to be a big hit with the little ones!

Are you seeing this?!?! That is graham cracker sandwiched between the fudgiest brownie you will ever eat and toasted marshmallow! Ooey-gooey marshmallow, people!

I may or may not have eaten three already… #sorrynotsorry (see how serious this is? I’m using hastags!)

Ok, so I may be a little lot bewitched by these yummy little morsels, but I promise you that if you make these, you will enjoy every sticky bite!

S’mores Brownies

Ingredients
– 1 8×8 Fudge Brownie Mix (I used a Betty Crocker Bag mix), prepared per directions
– 4.5 sheets graham crackers
– 2/3 of a bag of mini marshmallows

Directions
1. Line an 8×8 pan with nonstick foil or parchment paper. Note: I forgot to do this and am sincerely regretting it…
2. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
3. Pour prepared brownie mix into the bottom of the pan and smooth out into an even layer.
4. Carefully press graham cracker sheets evenly into the brownie mixture, like this:

5. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through, but still fudgy.
6. Pour marshmallows onto surface of brownies to cover.

7. Turn on broiler and place marshmallow-topped brownies under the heat source. I cannot stress this enough, DO NOT WALK AWAY FROM THE OVEN NOW!. The broiler only takes about 1-2 minutes to toast the marshmallows. If you walk away, you will have a burnt mess on your hands. Watch them through your oven window.

8. Let cool completely (or throw in the fridge for faster cooling). Cut into 16 pieces and devour!
