This S’mores Cake Pop tutorial is courtesy of our contributor Deanna…There is just something about s’mores that brings people together. If you’ve got graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate, and a bon fire – count me in! I recently found out that Wilton makes marshmallow flavored candy melts, so I obviously had to make s’mores cake pops. I sort of winged it and made it into a tutorial for you all, and oh boy did they turn out amazing. New favorite for sure! Enough talk, lets get started!
S’mores Cake Pops – What You’ll Need:
For these delicious cake pops, you’ll need:
- Chocolate Cake Pop Dough
- Marshmallow flavored candy melts (if you can’t find these at your local craft store you can order them on Amazon)
- Graham Crackers
- Chocolate Bar
- Cake Pop Sticks
- Wax Paper
First you’ll need some chocolate cake pop dough. If you don’t already have this handy you can bake your favorite chocolate cake, add some frosting, and turn it into cake pop dough. Roll out some cake pop balls and you’re all set.
Put a couple graham crackers into a baggie and smash them, not too much though, you’ll want bigger pieces so you get the entire s’mores experience.
Break up your chocolate candy bar. I also halved the pieces, but you can leave them whole if you want things to be extra chocolatey.
I’m not sure why, but the texture of my marshmallow candy melts were kinda off. It could be because I got them on a day it was 105* and the chocolate was completely melted inside the bag, or maybe it’s just the extra flavoring. I’m not entirely sure, but I had to add a tiny bit of vegetable oil to thin it out.
Dip the ends of the cake pop sticks into the chocolate, then into your cake pops. While you wait for that chocolate to harden get your graham cracker crumbs and chocolate ready.
Dip the entire cake pop into the marshmallow chocolate and gently tap off the excess chocolate.
Grab a handful of graham cracker crumbs and sprinkle them on the top of the cake pop, then place the cake pop stick up onto your wax paper. The graham cracker crumbs should be on the bottom now.
Take a piece of chocolate and place it onto the cake pop.
And that’s it! How easy was that? I totally didn’t want to share these because they are so good and really do taste like a s’mores!
