I tried using the craft sticks w/the rounded ends as the recipe suggested but, found that using 4in (10cm) lollipop/candy sticks were a little easier.
Also, I placed the form dough balls in the freezer for 30 min vs. the 15 min suggested in step 2 because dipping the balls into the melted choc mixture isn't as easy as it sounds-choc mixture was very thick so I had to continously keep reheating the choc mixture.
Since I didn't have any polystyreme foam, I ended up putting holes into 2 paper plates and placed the plates on the rim of 2 mixing bowls (deep enough so the sticks do not touch the bottom of bowl). After the balls were dipped into the melted choc mixture & graham cracker crumbs were sprinkled, I inserted the sticks into those holes on the plate & placed the plates in the refrig. for 15 min until the choc was hard.
My family and friends all enjoyed these S'more Shortcake Pops.
