You don’t need a campfire to make these tasty Vegan S’Mores Pops. It’s a fun and easy recipe that’s perfect to share with others, especially at summer barbecues!
I’ve been on a lot of camping trips in my life, and I think just about every one of them involved making s’mores. At least the really fun ones! There’s a specific way I liked my marshmallows cooked in the open fire. Let’s say my marshmallows are flambeed before adding them to the graham cracker. It’s surprising, then, that I like these perfectly uncooked S’Mores Pops, but I do. Maybe it’s the easiness factor that makes them so attractive.
So, if you love s’mores on a fire, be sure to give this s’mores lollipop version a try!

What You Need
You can find the full printable recipe, including ingredient quantities, below. But first, here are some explanations of ingredients and steps to help you make this recipe perfect every time.
- Lemon — We’ll use both the zest and the juice of the lemon.
- Oats — I used rolled oats for this recipe, but you can substitute instant oats.
- Chia — We’ll add some ground chia seeds to create a thicker texture. You can use whole chia seeds; I just prefer ground because it creates a smoother finished texture.
- Syrup — I used maple syrup, but you can substitute agave nectar.
- Milk — We’ll use almond milk for the best overnight oats! Substitute your favorite plant-based milk.
- Yogurt — I love adding some plant-based yogurt (plain, unsweetened) for an even more tangy flavor.
- Protein Powder — I add some vanilla protein powder for increased flavor and nutrients. If your protein powder is not sweetened, you may want to add an extra teaspoon or two of sweetener.
- Cornstarch — We’ll use cornstarch to thicken the lemon curd topping.
- Turmeric — A pinch of turmeric makes that lemon curd sunny yellow.
- Chocolate chips — Use my Vegan Chocolate Chips Guide to find the best chocolate chips for you!
- Plant-based milk — Use your favorite plant-based milk, such as soy, almond, cashew milk, etc.
- Extract — I’m recommending hazelnut extract to give the chocolate a Nutella flavor. If you don’t have hazelnut extract or can’t find it, you can substitute vanilla. If you’d like to use another extract flavor, such as coconut, banana, or orange, I recommend reducing the quantity to 1/2 a teaspoon.
- Marshmallows — You’ll need a bag of large vegetarian marshmallows (those mini marshmallows won’t do here!).
- Graham cracker crumbs — You can buy graham cracker crumbs or make your own. Follow the instructions for my Vegan Graham Cracker Crust for finding vegan graham crackers and crushing them.
- Paper straws — You can use popsicle sticks, but I love the color added by using paper straws.
What are Vegan Marshmallows?
The sole ingredient that makes marshmallows non-vegetarian is gelatin. It’s a common ingredient used in many products, and it’s made from animal collagen. It’s easy to make or buy vegetarian marshmallows these days. They’re made with a vegetarian gel, usually agar agar (red sea algae) that makes amazing marshmallows! You can find them at health food stores and in the health food sections of most major grocery stores.
How To Make S’Mores Pops
Everyone loves chocolate-covered s’mores on a stick. Here’s how to make them:
