Smores... on a stick
I love to make goodies for my kids. I just imagine how excited their little faces will be when they see the assorted sweets and treats. So I had pretzel rods, marshmallow and chocolate, and this really cute idea... but things don't always work out the way you imagine them. The original idea was doomed from the get go... A stressful trip to the store where we forgot the dipping components... an unsuccessful attempt putting more than one sticky marshmallows on a pretzel and a crying toddler... put them all together and I had a recipe for disaster. I should have just stopped while I was ahead, but I didn't... and I'm glad! The end result of toasted marshmallow covered in sweet chocolate and a touch of graham crackers were oh so tasty, borderline addictive... and surprisingly not very messy!!
Dipping Chocolate (almond bark, candy melts, etc.)
Graham Crackers, crushed
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Break each pretzel in half, then using a chop stick, or something similar in size, poke a beginner hole in one end of a marshmallow. Next, carefully work marshmallow onto the broken end of the pretzel (this seems like it would be so easy... but it's not) and lay the it on the baking sheet being careful not to let them touch.
