Kid’s Party Food: S’Mores on a Stick

By  | Last Updated:  

With warmer weather finally here, thoughts of picnics and barbecues are becoming a reality. Sometimes we get a small bonfire going out back; Sam LOVES to roast marshmallows (he’s closely supervised!).  Like so many of you, our family enjoys making s’mores, but Sam doesn’t get to do it as often as he wishes.  He doesn’t know why we can’t “make a fire” EVERY day. Hmm. That’s why I was happy to find this easy S’mores on a Stick recipe from Meaghan at The Decorated Cookie; we can all enjoy the taste treat without having to daily play caveman in the backyard!

  • This grilled dessert idea is perfect for an outdoor gathering. Simple, fresh and tasty!
  • Monkey toast is a super fun way to welcome your kids to breakfast in the morning.

Here’s what you need:

  • graham crackers
  • large marshmallows
  • milk chocolate chips
  • wax paper
  • baking sheet
  • serrated knife
  • shortening
  • disposable decorating bag {If your grocery doesn’t carry these, find them at the craft store}
  • lollipop sticks


  1. Line the tray with wax paper.
  2. Break the graham crackers into the four rectangles; place them wrong side up on the wax paper.
  3. Lightly grease the knife edge and the ends of the lollipop sticks. It really helps the whole process.
  4. Cut a marshmallow in half crosswise; skewer it with a stick.
  5. Pour about ½ cup of the chocolate chips in the disposable bag. Fold the top down and microwave at 30% power for one minute; then add 30 second intervals. Knead the bag between intervals until the chips are melted.
  6. Cut about ¼ inch off the bag tip. Pipe two dots of chocolate, about the size of a quarter, onto the graham cracker rectangle. Place the skewered marshmallow on top and then pipe two more chocolate dots on the marshmallow. Top with another cracker rectangle.
  7. Let it set for about an hour, or even put it in the refrigerator, so it’s good and solid.
  8. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat..until you have enough to satisfy everyone!

That’s all there is to it. You get to enjoy a summertime treat without being in the backyard with mosquitoes. Or cavemen.
