S'mores on a Stick

My boys are constantly building forts and tents and nothing goes better with camping than S'mores.  Generally speaking S'mores are messy and require a campfire, but NOT today!  
  • Marshmallow
  • Milk Chocolate Chips
  • Graham Crackers
  • Lollipop Sticks

The kids can do this almost all by themselves because there is no actual cooking involved.  
Nathan pointed out the Hidden Mickey we created!

First place the graham crackers in a plastic bag and finely crush them.  My little guy enjoyed using his "ninja skills" to chop them up!  Next, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave- stirring occasionally.  Then simply insert the stick into the marshmallow, dip about halfway into the chocolate, and then dip again into graham cracker crumbs.  That's it!  You can eat them right away or let the chocolate harden a little bit first.  I don't advise sticking in the fridge because the marshmallow will harden.

I know that I said it wouldn't be messy, but somehow he got chocolate on his nose!
