WONKATEERS, PROJECT #1: Chocolate Dipped S'more on a Stick

In the first week of December I had the opportunity to meet a wonderful group of kids through the Lyceum of Monterey where I taught a two-day class in Chocolatiering. It was fun; a learning experience for all; and very chocolatey!

I’m hoping that the kids will feel inspired to carry forth with the “Wonkateering” (as we called it) at home. In this spirit, I am authoring a series of posts featuring the recipes we used in class, some tutorials and techniques, and resources for where to buy the tools and specialty items.

The first class focused largely on chocolate dipping and the use of texture and transfer sheets.

We’ll start with my personal favorite: The Indoor S’more.

Please feel free to ask questions and comment in the field below.  Recipes, Tips and Resources will continue to be posted throughout today and this weekend.


  1. You had me at s'mores. Ya know those are my favorite! Love the little stars!

  2. Whenever we roast marshmallows for s'mores I let the kids have the graham cracker and chocolate while I burn my ooey gooey marshmallow to a black crisp. Yummmmmmm. Crispy gooey goodness!

    These are really clever. I never knew about those transfer sheets? I'm sure I'd find a way to mess it up, though.

  3. Awesome!!! I am so hungry now:)

  4. Oh my goodness, you're speaking my language!

  5. Thank you! This blog post will be advertised on CraftCrave in the Handcraft category today (look for timestamp: [08 Feb 04:00pm GMT]).

  6. Oh my gosh, I am SO gonna make these for my girls night bookclub/game night coming up at my house this month!
