S'mores On A Stick

These are the treats I made for our Young Women's Camp Kickoff. They turned out really cute, and apparently they were delicious, too.  :)
Here is what you need:
pretzel rods
jumbo marshmallows
1 pkg chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate)
vegetable shortening
graham crackers
Carefully push the pretzel rods into the center of the marshmallows until they almost poke through, then lift up slightly so they are secure.
Put some graham crackers in a ziploc bag and crush with rolling pin until crumbs are fine.  Pour into small bowl.
Melt 1/2 the bag of chocolate chips with a couple tablespoons of shortening in the microwave.  Stir until smooth.
Dip the marshmallows into the melted chocolate, and roll in graham crackers.  If you are making more, you can repeat with the other half of the chocolate chips.  (I made about 24, and I used all the chocolate!)
I set them in a cup and put it in the fridge until the chocolate was set. 
You can serve them just like that if you want - I put them in individual plastic bags...
and then I displayed them in these cute buckets!  Fun, huh?  (They looked much better in person.)
Thanks for stopping by!
