Homemade Marshmallow Frosting Smores Sticks

An easy, finger-food dessert that is perfect for parties, barbecues, or just Friday Night. A thin layer of milk chocolate ganache is spread onto Graham crackers and topped with homemade marshmallow frosting!

Easiest cooked frosting ever. Seriously cannot believe how fast this was and how little work I actually had to do to make it. That’s my kind of frosting! And making it gives you free license to torch things!

It’s like I missed my calling as a welder or something.

When my husband and I were in Chicago last week, we took a little evening trip to Richardson’s Farm, which is home to the largest corn maze in the world. Yes, the whole world.

We did the whole shebang: took a tracker ride, braved the corn maze, ate some kettle corn, climbed a tower and watched some teenagers shine super powerful lights on people in the maze (hi-larious, btw), drank some hot cider, ate some more kettle corn, and warmed ourselves beside a campfire.

What was this idyllic little scene missing? S’mores. (Obvi.)

Before I had time to fully lament our lack of forethought, my husband was off to a neighboring campsite to commandeer us a s’more. {Just kidding, he asked politely.}

One lone s’more between the two of us.

And it was AWESOME.

We smelled like a campfire for weeks but it was totally worth it for that little shared bit of melty, marshmallowy happiness.

These Homemade Marshmallow Frosting Smores Sticks are my tribute. Nothing competes with a campfire s’more (except maybe these smores crumble bars) but these little S’mores Sticks come close.

It’s all about the perfect marshmallow frosting and milk chocolate ganache. #fancy

But may I suggest you take two and stick them together?

And then dip them in milk chocolate ganache? <– too much?

I like to think of these as classy little party S’mores.

So get to the kitchen and get your party on! You probably already have all the ingredients. 🙂

Marshmallow Frosting Smores Sticks

Ingredients

For the Marshmallow Frosting:

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch Saigon cinnamon

For the Smores Sticks:

  • 12 sheets of Graham crackers
  • ½ cup milk chocolate I use Ghirardelli’s as always
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla
  • Marshmallow Frosting

Instructions

  • Bring 1 inch of water to a simmer in a pot. In the bowl of your stand mixer add egg whites, sugar and salt, whisk to combine. Place bowl over the simmering water making sure that the bowl fits tightly but the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water.
  • Heat the sugar mixture, whisking frequently, until a candy thermometer reads 120° F or they are hot to the touch. Remove bowl from heat and place in the base of your stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.
  • Beat the mixture until cool and glossy. Add the vanilla and cinnamon (more to taste), and beat to incorporate.
  • Spoon into a large piping bag fitted with your favorite tip. I used a Wilton 2D for these sticks.
  • While the whites were cooking, make your ganache by combining chocolate and heavy cream in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 50% power in 10 second increments until the cream is hot and the chocolate has begun to melt. Remove and whisk until smooth. Whisk in the vanilla.
  • Using an offset spatula or a knife, smear a little chocolate on each graham cracker section. Allow to cool before piping frosting on each.
  • I toasted mine with a blow torch (a mini one, Nana) but you could also do it under the broiler.

      Ganache is one of those things that is super easy to make but sounds all fancy! One of the many reasons I love it 😉

    It would have been pure torture to sit by a campfire and not be able to enjoy a s’more! I can see why you had to make these s’mores sticks as soon as you got home. These look amazing, especially that marshmallow frosting! I’ll say it again… I’ve got to get myself a kitchen torch!

    Wait – that question about the dipping in chocolate ganache being too much…that’s a hypothetical question right – I mean – really – is there ever such a thing as too much – when chocolate is involved? 😉
    I have yet to successfully make a cooked frosting – I need to try yours 4 sure!
    Have you and your hubs made it to Cagle’s Dairy here in Georgia? They are a working dairy, but also do the whole hayride, corn maze, food, hot dogs around the campfire dealio – and THEY have the fixins for smores (though my daughter and I smuggled in extra marshmallows the last time we went)

    Your trip to Chicago and the farm sounded like so much fun – minus the fact that there were no s’mores but at least you guys got one to enjoy between you two 🙂 This homemade marshmallow frosting looks so fluffy and amazing! Love that you made these fun s’mores sticks too – such a fun and delicious treat!

I can totally taste them dipped in that glorious chocolate ganache, smooshed together for the perfect s’more sandwich. Sistah, you totally know these are pinned, pinned & pinned. I’m saying, these are multiple boards worthy! xoxo!

    Ummm…holy cripes, Lindsey! These look amazing. I love how you took a classic s’more and turned it into a work of art. That marshmallow frosting is perfectly torched! Now you have totally inspired me to get some s’mores going…maybe it will help me forget that it’s cold outside. I’ll just put on some Jimmy Buffett, toast up some of these s’mores and pretend that it’s mid-July. Pinned!

    I want some. I haven’t had a s’mores in forever. Campfire s’mores are the best. It has been even longer since I’ve had those. And btw, there is a scene in my book that takes place in front of a campfire (very romantic lol) where the characters are making s’mores. It had me craving s’mores as I was writing it.
