S'mores on a Stick

1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 TBSP shortening
3 graham crackers, smashed to crumbs
6-10 large marshmallows
toothpicks or lollipop sticks

Melt chocolate in microwave in 30 second increments. Add shortening to thin chocolate out {never use water!}.

Once chocolate is smooth, assemble your "dipping station." Stick the marshmallows on the stick. Arrange the chocolate, crushed graham crackers close by so that you can easily move the marshmallows from one to the other.

Dip the marshmallows in the chocolate, covering as much as you'd like. I did some half covered, then some completely covered. Dab off any excess chocolate on the bottom and then dip or roll in the cracker crumbs. Allow marshmallow to set up on a piece of foil or wax paper.

These will keep really well for days if you store them in an airtight container. We've had some for even 5 days in a ziplock and they still look and taste like we just made them. Keep that in mind for summer parties and barbecues coming up- these are a great make ahead treat for the kids!
