S’mores Favors

I love edible wedding and party favors, and Kelly Maron – mastermind behind Paper Stories and the hip Chicago bridal show Indie Wed – has stopped by EAD today to share her quick and easy how-to for S’mores on a Stick!  And even better, she has created three adorable printable tags for these goodies in two color palettes.  Print either the “Love on a Stick” or “Yum! Yum! Yum!” tags on sheets of label paper, and wrap around the S’more stick, or print the “Gimme S’more!” tag on cardstock, punch a hole, and attach to your S’more with decorative twine.  Voila – easy peasy S’mores favors!  Thanks Kelly for sharing!

DIY-Smores-Wedding-Favors-5

You will need:

  • Melting chocolate (milk-chocolate candy melts available at Michaels, Hobby Lobby etc)
  • Large marshmallows
  • Graham crackers, crumbled into a small dish
  • Lollipop sticks (I prefer the long ones) – available at Michaels, Hobby Lobby or online
  • Clear treat bags & twine for packaging

DIY-Smores-Wedding-Favors-1

1) Insert the lollipop sticks into the marshmallows and set aside.

2) Melt the chocolate according to the package instructions.  It is best to melt a little at a time in a smaller dish.

3) Dip and roll the marshmallow into the chocolate, covering the sides and top, then immediately roll side of marshmallow through the graham cracker crumbs.

4) Secure the stick into something that will keep it upright while the chocolate dries.  I used a cardboard box with holes poked in it. A large block of styrofoam (the ones that come as packaging in boxes) work well too.

5) Continue steps 3 & 4 with the rest of the marshmallows.  Melt more chocolate as needed.

6) When the chocolate has set, wrap the treat in a clear bag, wrap with twine and add desired printable tag.  Voila!  S’mores on a stick.

    These look yummy! Any idea how long this will last? I would love to make them, but would want to get it done a few days before the wedding so I don’t make myself crazy.

  2. @Kayduh You can actually make them a few days ahead of time. When I made them for this shoot, I had a bunch sitting around for about a week. My son and I kept eating them throughout the week. By the fourth day or so the marshmallows started to go a little stale. We also didn’t cover them totally in the chocolate and I think if we had, it would have perhaps kept the marshmallows from drying out as much.

    Enjoy! ;)

    Make sure you cover the entire marshmallow with chocolate – if you do they can last about a week. If you leave any marshmallow exposed, it’ll feel dry/stale within 24 hours. We made these last year for a fall party and they were a big hit – portable + fun!

  4. After making them, should you place them on wax paper and place them in the fridge? (So the chocolate does not stick to the wrapping). How long should they cool for?
    Thanks for posting!

    This is an amazing idea, and I for sure am going to use it. Furthermore, I really appreciate that you included the custom labels. Nowadays with so many extra costs for weddings, its really nice to be able to find great freebies, that others volunteer. Thank you so much!!

  6. @vanessa i didn’t put them on wax paper. if you use the right type of chocolate, it dries pretty hard rather quickly. just standing the sticks in something for 10 minutes or so was enough. no need to refrigerate either. once they dry, just package them up. ;)

    I love love love this idea, but can no longer get the tags for the project. Is there anyone someone still has the pdf that they can send, or someone who knows where else they can be found?
    Thanks so much!

      hi kait! i’m so sorry, the bottom link was working but the top one was broken. i just fixed it! thanks for alerting me to this. :)

  10. This is such a yummy and easy idea! I love favors that come on a stick because you can display them in so many fun ways.

  11. Cake Pops are definitely a great choice if you’re looking for fun edibles for your wedding or party. Favors By Katie would be a great place to check out! favorsbykatie.com

    How much chocolate did you need vs. how many marshmallows did you make? I’m planning on making around 150 of these and I’d like to get an idea how much chocolate I should get.
