Hey, friends! Every time we mention to the boys that we’re having a BBQ that day, the first thing they ask me is whether we’re making S’mores. The older two boys and I discovered them at Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Campfire Sing along in Walt Disney World, and then Hero became quite obsessed with making them after reading Don’t Feed the Bear last Summer, and so S’more mania took over. It’s the combination of chocolate and marshmallow for the boys that they love, and getting messy, and also probably watching me panic as they set the marshmallows on fire from time to time [although that does smell amazing]. And whilst we can’t always be having a BBQ – because the weather isn’t often that kind to us here on the allegedly “sunny” South Coast of England, I can combine the ingredients of S’mores to make a fun treat. Teddy Bear S’More Pops.

There are wooden sticks with raffia bows, marge marshmallows in a red bucket and on a checked red and white tablecloth there is a white scalloped dish containing cinnamon teddy grahams and crushed digestive biscuits. In the glass bowl there is dairy milk chocolate. Image by Keep Up With the Jones Family.

Our Teddy Bear S’More Pops are decorated with raffia since I still have a huge amount left after making the grass table skirts at the boys’ Maui and Moana Party.

On the tabletop is a large red tin bucket filled with large marshmallows and several wooden sticks tied with raffia bows, ready to have marshmallows skewered on to them to make Teddy Bear S'More Pops.

When the boys got home from school today they were impressed with how lovely the S’mores pops looked – and they’re so easy and so mess free to make, despite what you’d think. There’s also something very therapeutic about twirling giant marshmallows around in a bowl of thick milk chocolate.

Here’s what you’ll need for Teddy Bear S’More Pops:

I decided to make Teddy Bear ones since an American shop opened up in West Quay and sold Teddy Grahams they were hugely overpriced so I got them off Amazon [sorry people] but anyhow, it reminded me that. There’s a serious lack of cute and shaped foods here in the UK – let’s be honest, we suck at celebrating the seasons. Don’t get me started on how food manufacturers think just putting a different design on the front of a bag of sweets but with exactly the same sweets inside makes them “Hallowe’en” sweets, for instance. It’s lazy, and it makes me import food from the USA – or make my own.

Teddy Graham Crackers

Anyhow here’s the link to the, Teddy Grahams but you can use any little biscuit you have of course. I managed to get the Teddy Graham crackers in cinnamon flavour. [I love cinnamon so much], and used generic digestive biscuits to crush up. I crush mine by popping them in a resealable bag, and then running a rolling pin over them until they’re flat, shaking the bag and repeating a few times.

How to Make Teddy Bear Marshmallow S’More Pops

These are ridiculously easy to make but look so sweet. The recipe card is below. It’s basically melting, dunking and twirling, setting and sprinkling and serving. Easy – and they look so cute. The only challenge you’re likely to face is the chocolate melting part – you can melt the chocolate in a microwaveable bowl, like I usually do – I either pop mine in for a minute on full power [700w] and then stir, stir, stir until all the lumps are out, or I’ve taken to using a bain marie, which is a posh way of saying I put a glass pyrex bowl over a pan of boiling water and stir until the chocolate melts whenever I’m not at home and am using someone else’s kitchen.

Setting the Chocolate

Setting options for your s’more pops are a personal choice – you can either stand them on their ends on greaseproof baking paper, but then you risk the digestive sprinkles getting enveloped in the chocolate, or stand them in something you can poke a stick into, like a cardboard box, or a polystyrene chunk from something you’ve had arrived packed for safety [I did this] orrrr some kinetic sand, which is what’s in the steel bucket to stand them up for display. I also use Play doh or plasticine. Haha.

Don’t forget to display them somewhere for people to admire them before they’re eaten. I think my boys like the display just as much as the food if I’m honest!

Mmmm….. Melted chocolate…. These would be perfect at a backyard BBQ where there are really little children who aren’t old enough to use the BBQ alone.
