DIY- Technicolor S'mores!

Few desserts are as simple, yet timelessly-delicious as a s'more. I mean, they invoke the summer of childhood, while still tasting amazing to the adult palate (no offense, push-pops) and are essentially a no-bake/no-cook dessert. Nostalgia + Chocolate = YES!!

Snack Attack!

In honor of National S'mores Day {Monday, August 10th, mark your calendar}, I thought it would be fun to create a new, slightly-more-colorful version... a TECHNICOLOR S'MORE!! How cute would these be at a summer BBQ? Or ya know, on Tuesday night, while you're in your jams watching Netflix...

Technicolor S'mores Colored Marshmallow

What You'll Need:

  • Marshmallows {I used the XL size but any size will work}
  • Food Coloring
  • Chocolate {I used "melting chocolate" from a craft store because I wanted lots of color!}
  • Sprinkles
  • Graham Crackers
  • 2-4 Small Bowls/Rammekins
  • Spoons 

1) Start by setting out the marshmallows you plan to use, on a plate. Take your small bowls, and add a couple drops of food coloring to each one, of the colors you plan to use. Then, add water to dilute. You want it to be deep enough to submerge about half of your marshmallow.

2) Take a marshmallow and dip halfway into the dye. Hold it there for a minute to give it a wash of color, and then gently shake it off and set it on the plate. Repeat this with all of the marshmallows you plan to use, and set them all aside for about 10 minutes to completely air-dry. When they feel dry to the touch, flip them over the dye the other side in another color.

3) While the marshmallows are air-drying, start preparing your chocolate dip. Take the melting chocolate {or chocolate bar if that's what you're using} and put approx. half a cup in a small bowl. Microwave it for about 20 seconds, stir it up, and microwave another 15-20 seconds. {If the chocolate starts to harden while you use it, you can re-microwave for a few seconds to soften it up.}

4) Take a spoon and drizzle the chocolate over the top of the marshmallow. You can get creative with drizzling and make designs, or you can load it up with as much chocolate as it will hold {like me}! Do this with each marshmallow and make sure they don't touch when you place them back on the plate. You don't want them to stick together as they dry!

5) While the chocolate is still soft, throw on your sprinkles. I tried to use fun contrasting colors but eventually... I just started putting all the sprinkles on all the marshmallows!! {Never enough sprinkles!} Then, set them all aside to harden for 5-10 minutes.

6) When the chocolate is firm to the touch, grab your marshmallow, stuff it between two graham crackers {melting it all is optional}, and enjoy. You know you're gonna want SOME MORE... That's why it's called..."S'MORE"!!!
