Is your mouth watering yet? Because mine certainly is! S'mores push-up pops - they're now a thing. A beautiful, wonderful, delicious thing. Because if there were ever a way to get a sticky, ooey gooey, chocolate-y treat into your mouth in a mater of seconds, the push pop is it. Instant deliciousness! Serve em' at a birthday party, around a campfire, or for breakfast on Thursday morning (we don't judge!)
Smores Push-Up Pops
|Push up pop containers (we found ours on Amazon)||1 pint Ben & Jerryâ€™s sâ€™mores ice cream|
|1 cup graham cracker crumbs||4 tbs butter|
|Hersheyâ€™s chocolate bar||Mini marshmallows|
|Marshmallow fluff||Circle cookie cutters|
|2 cooling racks||Kitchen blowtorch|
Use a large kitchen knife to slice the carton of ice cream into 1â€ thick layers. Lay each layer on a cutting board. Using a circle cookie cutter that fits inside the push pop container, cut out circles of ice cream from each layer (youâ€™ll need 2 per push pop). If the ice cream starts melting as you work, just pop the cutting board in the freezer for 15 mins until it hardens up. Set ice cream circles in the freezer until push pop assembly.
Melt butter in a small bowl and mix in graham cracker crumbs.
Spread a layer of mini marshmallows on a metal baking tray and use the blowtorch to brown the tops (or you can brown them under the broiler).
Stack cooling racks on top of each other and place push pop containers in the top one so that they stay upright as you fill them.
Fill each push pop container with a spoonful of graham cracker mixture (pressing into an even layer), then an ice cream circle. Use a wet paper towel to wipe the sides of the container to remove any ice cream trails. Then fill with a spoonful of marshmallow fluff (pressing into an even layer), then a layer of graham cracker, and another ice cream circle. Top with 2 squares of Hersheyâ€™s chocolate and a layer of browned marshmallows. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes, then enjoy!
