The Cobbler Sticks

 

Name the movie…

Ham – “Hey, you wanna s’more?”

Scotty – “Some more what?”

Ham – “I just got here, so how can I have some more of nothing?”

Scotty – “You’re killin’ me, Smalls! Okay, these s’mores are stuff…”

If you love s’mores as much as Ham from the Sandlot does, then you’re going to love making mini-cobblers (otherwise known as “woofems”) with The Cobbler Sticks. In fact, I’m convinced that this scene from the Sandlot would feature mini-cobblers instead if it were filmed in 2019.

In a nutshell, making mini-cobblers is like a hybrid of Dutch oven cooking and roasting a marshmallow over the fire.  In my opinion, it’s the best of both worlds, only way easier and a little less messy.

My husband and I brought a pack of The Cobbler Sticks over to my in-law’s fire pit this weekend to try them out, and we are officially hooked. They are super easy to make, and the cleanup is minimal.

All you need are your Cobbler Sticks, a pop-can of biscuit dough, and your favorite filling. You can even create a smore mini-cobbler, or you can venture with your favorite pie filling, pudding, and more. Since it was our first time roasting with the Cobbler Sticks, we kept it simple with chocolate pudding cups and whipped cream.

To make the mini-cobblers, you simply wrap biscuit dough around the thick end of the Cobbler Sticks. The next step is to roast them over the fire, just as you would a marshmallow or hot dog. It only took us about 3-5 minutes for them to fully cook, and we found that the closer to the flame the better. Since it’s dough, it doesn’t easily burn as marshmallows do.

Once the dough is no longer gooey, you pull it off the Cobbler Stick. Due to the texture of the wood, the cooked mini-cobbler crust comes off easily. A word of advice though – have a plate or piece of tinfoil on hand. I made the mistake of taking it off without one prepared, and it was HOT.

Once you have your mini-cobbler crust ready, you pour in your favorite filling. The chocolate pudding we poured in heated up quickly due to the crust being so hot. It kind of reminded me of the pudding in chocolate lava cake. We then topped it off with a bit of whipped cream, and the rest is history.

Clean up was relatively quick, which was a huge plus. I don’t know about you, but I hate campfire cleanup. All we had to do was put the Cobbler Sticks in a bowl of warm water for about 10 minutes, then wipe the excess dough off with a paper towel. This was so much easier than trying to scrape off burnt pieces of marshmallow from a stick.

Needless to say, we’ll be making mini-cobblers all summer long.  Here are a few mini-cobbler recipes we can’t wait to try:
