These flower shaped s’more pie pops are an adorable summer treat! And they turned out to be so pretty with their golden brown colour, and just a pinch of coarse sugar to add some texture. It’s a great little treat to make with the kids! The heart shaped mini blueberry pies that I made earlier this year were soooooo delicious that I’ve been wanting to try a variation on the recipe for awhile now! And come on… who doesn’t love s’mores?!
These s’more pie pops turned out to be beautiful (or at least some of them did), and they were delicious! BUT… they were a bit frustrating to make and they definitely weren’t perfect, which drove the perfectionist in me a little nuts. The marshmallow melts away in the oven and some of it leaked out of the edges. And the melted chocolate leaked out of the cracks in the top of the pie crust (which is actually yummy now that I think about it…) where I had trouble getting it to cover the goodies inside.
The flower shape is a tricky shape to get to seal properly, so they aren’t going to be flawless. But they taste amazing! The pie crust hardens in the oven, making them kind of like s’more cookies on a stick. Yum!
I think my biggest mistake was that the flower cookie cutter I chose just wasn’t big enough (my flower cookie cutter was 2-1/4″ wide at its widest point). It was super cute, but my s’more pie pops were just a little bit too small to be able to stuff enough chocolate and gooey marshmallow into without tearing the top pie crust. So if you make these at home, I definitely recommend using a cookie cutter that’s at least 3″ wide.
Plus, if you make them bigger, you won’t need to make so many of them. It takes a lot more time to shape, press, and seal 15 pie pops, rather than, say 8 pie pops. But by the time I figured that out it was too late. You can definitely make them just like mine, but they won’t be flawless. So don’t say I didn’t warn you.
If you choose a larger cookie cutter, you’ll be in much better shape! (No pun intended… ha!)
Flower Shaped S’more Pie Pops
The full printable recipe is at the bottom of this post, but here’s what you’ll need:
- Frozen 9″ pie crusts
- Hershey’s Creamy Milk Chocolate Bar
- Mini Marshmallows
- 6″ Lolly Pop Sticks
- A beaten egg
There are so many s’more variations that you can try here! You can use chocolate chips instead of a Hershey’s bar. Or you can use marshmallow fluff instead of marshmallows. You could even add some graham crackers inside! You can pretty much make them any shape that you want, as long as there’s enough room inside to fit the chocolate and marshmallows.
Once the pie crust defrosts, gently pull it out of the pie plate and roll it flat with a rolling pin. You can sprinkle some flour on it if you notice the rolling pin sticking, but I didn’t have any problems with mine.
Using a flower shaped cookie cutter, cut the shapes out of the pie crust. My cookie cutter was fairly small, so I managed to get 15 flowers. And since the frozen pie crusts I used came in packages of 2, I cut out 30 flowers for a total of 15 pie pops.
Arrange the flowers on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure you offset them so there’s enough room for the lolly pop sticks.
Beat an egg and spread it on the edges of the shapes to help seal them closed. Since mine were so small, I just covered the entire flower. But when I made the heart shaped mini blueberry pies, they were big enough that I only had to do the edges.
Gently press the lolly pop stick into the pie crust and press it down slightly to indent it into the dough. That will help keep it in place so the pie pops actually stay on the stick once they’re baked.
Cut the chocolate into pieces that will fit inside whatever shapes you have cut out and then place the chocolate over top of the lolly pop stick. By placing the chocolate right over top of the stick the chocolate kind of turns into glue once it melts and then hardens again. Mine were surprisingly sturdy and stuck to the sticks really well.
Ideally, I would have wanted to add more marshmallows to my pie pops, but this is all that I could get to fit. I had to cut each of the marshmallows in half, so it was only two mini marshmallows total, per pie pop.
Then add the top piece of pie crust to cover the bottom and seal it closed by pressing a fork down around the edges. I had to stretch out my top pieces of dough because they weren’t big enough to cover the chocolate and marshmallows. I used my fingers to pinch them out in all directions to make them bigger.
Then brush the outside of each flower with the beaten egg and sprinkle the top with coarse sugar before baking them.
Aren’t they pretty?! I mean, they aren’t perfect, but they’re definitely pretty with that perfect golden brown colour and the fine texture added by the coarse sugar!
Flower Shaped S'more Pie Pops Recipe

- 1 Hershey's Creamy Milk Chocolate Bar
- Mini Marshmallows
- 1 egg beaten
- 6 " Lolly Pop Sticks
- Preheat the oven to 350F.
- Remove the defrosted pie crusts from the pie plate and roll flat.
- Using a flower shaped cookie cutter, cut out as many shapes from each pie crust as you can. Set aside half of the pieces.
- Arrange half of the shapes on a parchment lined baking sheet, being sure to offset them to leave room for the lolly pop sticks.
- Brush the beaten egg onto each of the shapes to cover completely.
- Gently press the lolly pop stick into each of the shapes, pressing down and embedding it slightly.
- Add a square of chocolate, and some mini marshmallows.
- Take the pieces of cut out pie dough that had been set aside, and place them on top of the chocolate and marshmallows. Pinch the dough with your fingers to stretch it out if it's not large enough to cover the chocolate and marshmallows.
- Gently press down the edges of each shape, then use a fork to completely seal the edges.
- Bake at 350F for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.
These flower shaped s’more pie pops take a little bit of effort to put together, but they’re completely adorable! And they taste sooooo good! Who doesn’t LOVE melted chocolate and marshmallows!? Yum!
