Pinterest Pass or Fail: S'More Pie Pops


Seriously, who doesn't love to eat food from a stick? With warmer weather and outdoor adventures upon us, these S'More Pie Pops from TheGunnySack.com caught our eye. They'd be a fun treat for kids - both big and small. We went into The Kitchen to give them a try.

Gather the Ingredients

  • 1 refrigerated pre-made pie crust

  • Large Hershey's chocolate bar

  • 1 c mini-marshmallows

  • Graham crackers (optional)

  • 1 egg white, beaten

  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar

  • lollipop sticks

To Make the Pops

Roll out the pre-made pie dough. Make sure surface is lightly floured.



Break chocolate bar into 4 pieces. Each piece should have 3 rectangles of chocolate.



Cut the crust into 8 equal rectangles. You may need to re-roll the dough to get 8 rectangles. Make sure the dough is slightly bigger than the pieces of chocolate.



Take a piece of dough, put 1 piece of chocolate (3 rectangles) in the center.



Next, add 10 mini-marshmallows.



We opted to add crushed graham crackers for the full s'mores effect. Crush the crackers in a resealable bag.



Sprinkle crushed graham crackers on top of marshmallows.



Place a lollipop stick onto the dough. Make sure it's far enough from the edge so it does not fall out. Top with another piece of dough.



Roll and crimp edges.



Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush with egg whites.



Sprinkle the sugar on top.



Bake for 12-15 minutes in an oven pre-heated to 375F.



You want the pie dough to be nice and golden. Allow pops to cool a few minutes prior to eating.



The Results

Unfortunately they're a Pinterest Fail but ...

If you're looking for that typical marshmallow, gooey goodness like regular s'mores you won't find that here. The marshmallow completely melts and disappears leaving an empty cavity with melted chocolate. Tonia mentions this may happen, but we were hoping a bit more marshmallow would remain. The crushed graham crackers helped with flavor, but those melted too.



If we were to try these again, we'd use 2 large frozen marshmallows in each pie. Freezing the marshmallows may help them disappear less in the baking process. But... they're pretty darn tasty and adorable. If you like chocolate and pie crust, they're worth snacking on.

It's called fun for the kids. Sometimes we do things for the fun of it. You can ask the same question of cake pops. I personally wouldn't do it because my kids are grown but might consider it when grandkids come to visit. W

Why cant people leave a good thing alone? There are just some things, like S'mores that are not been to be wrapped in pie dough, but to be ooey and goey and leave your fingers a little sticky which is half the fun of eating them!

I would think a jar of marshmallow fluff would work better than actual marshmallows. And the grahams shiuld stay whole like the recipe said. Grahams melt with moisture, try holding a,piece in your mouth so goes to reason if it's just crumbs, of course they would disappear. :)
