I get my recipe inspiration from a lot of places, but one of the main places is Pinterest. There I can find so many creative and inventive ideas, and a lot of times those ideas just stick in my head. So when I'm feeling creative I go to the kitchen and try to replicate what I saw.
That's what happened with these S'mores Pops. I remember seeing something similar, and when I was craving a chocolate dessert I knew they were the thing to make. They're perfect for the Fourth of July since they're simple to make, favored by both adults and kids, and are reminiscent of a favorite childhood treat for all. Enjoy and Happy Fourth of July everyone!

- 8 honey graham crackers, divided in half
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- 2 cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
- 8 lollipop sticks
- Sprinkles, for topping (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
On a baking sheet, place 8 of the graham cracker halves. Top each half with as many mini marshmallows that will fit in an even layer.
Place baking sheet in oven and bake for 3-5 minutes or until marshmallows puff and begin to brown.
Remove from oven and stick a lollipop stick in the center of each cracker, making sure the marshmallow secures it into place. Immediately top with the other graham cracker half and press down lightly. Allow to cool completely so the lollipop stick sets.
Place chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 45 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir. Continue heating in 30 second increments, stirring after each interval, until chocolate is completely melted.
Line a separate baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Dip each graham cracker in the melted chocolate, using a spoon to help coat all sides. Transfer the chocolate-dipped graham cracker to the parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Top with sprinkles. Repeat with remaining pops.
Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes or until set. Store in an airtight container.
