S’mores are probably my favorite dessert. I love the idea of sitting around a campfire, roasting marshmallows and combining the slightly burnt flavors with melty chocolate sandwiched between two tasty graham crackers. I didn’t think this classic could get any better… until now. The Artful Desperado introduced me to a unique twist on the Front + Main blog, so without further ado it’s time to check out these Dairy Free S’mores Popsicles.
This recipe is really easy and a lot of fun to put together as long as you’re prepared. Here are some tips that will help.
1) You’ll need to freeze the popsicles in the molds overnight, so be sure to plan ahead for that. The next day, you’ll get to dive into the delicious toppings.
2) Make sure you have a kitchen torch that works. An issue that I ran into was that my kitchen torch was on its last legs. I didn’t realize this until I was ready to torch the meringue. Oops. We ate them anyway and they were delicious.
I decided to start fresh and make another batch of popsicles to freeze overnight, so I could get a new kitchen torch to use the next day for my photo shoot.
3) Removing the popsicles from the molds can be a little tricky. I recommend running the molds under warm (not hot) water for about 30 seconds and then giving them a try. You can repeat the process, if needed, until they loosen.
4) I also found it helpful to keep the popsicles on a bed of ice while adding the toppings to prevent them from melting too quickly, especially with the heat from the torch. Everything went really smoothly since I was more prepared this time around.
