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!
Before we get into the written instructions, here’s a short video of the tutorial.
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!

thank you so much for this
I can’t find these marshmallow candy melts anywhere, including amazon. Any advice? I’m desperate, these look amazing! 🙂
Hi holly – i found these at my local Michael’s craft store, but with a little bit of research i found that they are seasonal and wont be back until this summer. However you can pick up regular vanilla white candy melts and purchase Marshmallow flavored flavoring, just make sure it’s oil based!
I was going to mix my chocolate cake with marshmallow cream, then use white chocolate coating.
Oh that’s a good idea, thank you! How much marshmallow flavoring would you add to the melted chocolate? I have some LorAnn oils marshmallow flavoring, do you think that’ll work and should I just add a 1/2 tsp or a couple drops or what would you recommend? I’ll probably use the vanilla almond bark instead of the vanilla candy melts as I like how the bark melts better.
I wish I knew the answer to that question, but I haven’t used the marshmallow flavoring before. I would suggest just using a few drops to start as sometimes they can be pretty potent and do a taste test 😉
These are great ideas. I plan on making these this weekend, we are getting hit with a ton of snow what better way then spend that time cooking a few new meals. thanks ladies. I’ll use the almond bark and the marshmallow fluff and my pop binder can’t wait.
I just realized that you said marshmallow flavored frosting. Are you saying to use that in the cake pops instead of regular frosting? What about using vanilla bark instead of the melts and putting a couple drops of the marshmallow flavoring in that?
I said flavored flavoring, not frosting. Stick with your almond bark! 🙂
These are adorable! Did the graham crackers get mushy/stale at all when left out? My son has a class party for the end of the year and thy would love these but I know stale graham crackers is pretty unappetizing.
Hi Katherine! Sorry for not responding sooner! For graham cracker desserts, I usually keep them stored in the refrigerator to keep them tasting fresher for longer.
About how many cake pops does one batch make?
Do you melt the frosting just a bit before you mix it with your cake crumbs?
I don’t – I mix the frosting in at room temperature.
Thanks for this! I made these for a family event that was held at a campground and they turned out great! I didn’t find marshmallow flavored melts, so I used Ghiradelli white chocolate melts, and stirred a big scoop of Marshmallow Fluff into the cake ball mixture. They were a big hit 🙂
