2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
18 (6-inch) lollipop sticks
3 tablespoons marshmallow cream
1 (12 x 18-inch) block Styrofoam™

2. Using small ice cream scoop or 1-tablespoon measuring spoon, scoop chocolate mixture into 18 balls onto 1 prepared pan; roll each scoop into a ball, then roll in graham cracker crumbs to coat. Insert 1 lollipop stick about 3/4 of the way into center of each ball and place on second prepared pan; refrigerate 45 minutes or until firm.
3. Working with 1 pop at a time, hold pop upright and spread top with 1/2 teaspoon marshmallow cream; insert pops into 12 x 18-inch block of Styrofoam to stand upright.
4. Place oven rack 6 inches from source of heat; turn broiler to high. Spray rimmed baking pan with cooking spray; arrange 18 clusters of 4 mini marshmallows each on prepared pan. Broil marshmallows 45 seconds or until golden brown, watching carefully for burning. With small spatula, carefully transfer marshmallow clusters onto pops over marshmallow cream.
