S’More Pops

SONY DSCI am busy working on my Project One for Camp Loopy! I’m using a new indie line that we have arriving soon (Hedgehog Fibres – woohoo!) and loving the way it is knitting up. I’m making the Ananke Shawl/Scarf and can see making more of these with some of my multi-color fingering weight skeins. It’s a quick and easy pattern, and not so fussy that a mixed colorway mushes up the pattern. I love patterns that look good in multi-colors.

Of course all of this intensive knitting calls for some snacks, right? We can’t have you fainting from hunger while you’re working on your projects. I saw this idea on Pinterest awhile back and tried it out this week. Yum. And easy! It would be fun to make with your kids or your friends.

SONY DSCS’More Pops

1 bag of marshmallows
1 box of graham cracker crumbs (or crush up your own)
Melting Chocolate (one option here)
Lollipop Sticks or Drink Stirrers (one option here)

Melt the chocolate until it’s free of lumps. Insert the stick into the end of your marshmallow, pushing it up about halfway into the marshmallow. Don’t pop it through the end or your marshmallow will slowly shimmy on down the stick!

Dip the marshmallow into the chocolate, all the way down the side. While the chocolate is still warm, roll the marshmallow in the graham cracker crumbs. Be sure to dip the top in the crumbs, too.

Put the stick in a coffee mug so the chocolate can firm up for a few minutes, then you can lay them flat on a cookie sheet. Store in a covered container.

How are you coming along on your Camp project? (If you didn’t join, it’s not too late. Hop in!) I hope to finish mine up over the weekend. If you need a quick and cute project idea, check out Wendy’s new As You Like It Scarf pattern, which is free on Ravelry. She whipped this up for her Camp Loopy project, and now you can, too!

  1. Oh man Sheri, those look wonderful! Yummy in fact- will have to try these! I am on the lace border of the Oaklet shawl-So I think I am doing pretty good!

  2. Sheri! Once again, we are knitting the same project for Camp Loopy! Last summer it was the Laura Linneman shawl that went on forever….and now I am also knitting Ananke. I think you have excellent taste in projects!

  3. I am so excited that you will be getting Hedgehog Fibers! I have been wanting to try it, based on seeing so many beautiful projects on Ravelry in that yarn. Yay! And thanks for turning me on to yet ANOTHER great pattern! I, too, am excited to see one that looks so good in multis!

  4. That is a BRILLIANT idea! I’ll be making some s’more pops with Dandies (vegan marshmallows). Can’t wait!!

  5. Boy, I am going to make those smores pops! We made regular ones last week, and they got so sticky and messy!
    I can’t wait for you to get the Hedgehog Fibres in!!!
    I am still working on my Camp project. I am making the Racing Raindrops shawl/scarfy thing from Churchmouse. It is also a free pattern- check it out! I am using fingering weight though instead of lace and no beads on mine. My yarn is Dragonfly Fibers in Dragon sock and “Bohemian Rhapsody” is the gorgeous color!!! I’ m also trying to finish a baby sweater before Monday for Daniel’s teacher’s new son!!!

  6. I was lucky enough to go to Ireland back in the spring and picked up 2 of the hedgehog skeins and love it!!!! I have finished one project using a Twisted pattern as well. The yarn is excellent to work with. Socks are on line for project 2. I am thrilled you will soon have this line at Loopy, I was trying to figure out how I could get more. As always Loopy comes through!!! Thank you

  7. Just finished up my camp project today and it’s off the blocking boards and ready to photograph.
    Now the question is – if you have really soft fresh marshmallows, could you stick a pretzel stick in for the handle and then the whole darn thing is edible. A little salty with the sweet :-)

  8. Jan, that is too funny! What are you making next??

    Denise – what an excellent idea with the pretzel sticks. I will try that the next time!

    Glad you all are excited about Hedgegog Fibres. It is really gorgeous yarn.

  9. Sheri,
    I also have Wendy Johnson’s mystery KAL on the needles, but am needing to spend time on my Loopy project, so it’s going rather slowly. I’m doing that one in Shalimar Breathless. There are always socks in process here, too!

  10. I got a late start on my camp loopy project (didn’t start till the 8th, eeek!), but I am making good progress now that I’m past the fiddly start of the project.

    My next project is actually going to go back to an older project. I want to finish up most of the sweaters I have on the needles!

  11. Hi Sheri,

    Did you post the August project yet? I’ve been checking your blog for the Aug project so I can buy yarn, but I haven’t seen it. Could you post a link to the Aug project, if you have posted already?

    Thanks!
