White Chocolate S'mores


One of my coworkers was celebrating her birthday this week, and I thought it would be fun to surprise her with some tasty treats:  White Chocolate S'mores!  They are a fun, EASY twist on cake pops.  I love cake pops, but they are rather time-consuming to make.  The White Chocolate S'mores take very little time to make, and you can make as many or as few as you like at one time!


I packaged each S'more in a clear cellophane bag secured with a twist tie.  I happened to have this pink pail, which I filled with some dried white beans to hold up the S'mores.  To decorate the pail, I used the little stitched circle die from My Creative Time's Build a Banner Kit and made polka dot stickers.  The adhesive backed paper I used is from a DCWV pack I got on clearance a couple of years ago.  I haven't used it much, but this was a perfect place for it!


On one of the S'mores I tied a cute little tag made with the MCT Curly Label and Stitched Label Dies, stamped with a sentiment from Wow!  So Many Candles.  I tied it to the S'more with my favorite green hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.


There are lots of recipes out there for S'mores.  Most call for chocolate, but since I didn't have any, I used the Wilton's white chocolate candy melts.  To make these, I simply melted some of the candy melts in the microwave, according to the package directions.  Then I dipped a lollipop stick into the candy melts and then into a jumbo marshmallow.  After that I dipped the marshmallow into the candy melts and then rolled it into graham cracker crumbs that I had crushed.  That's it!  


I have a big piece of styrofoam that I use for cooling cake pops, so I used it to let my white chocolate harden on the S'mores.  Very easy, and oh, so tasty!

Also, be sure to stop back here tomorrow.  It will be the first day of the annual My Creative Time 12 Days of Christmas!  We will have lots of fun projects to inspire you, as well as some awesome giveaways!
