S’MORES DIP INGREDIENTS
You will need:
- 6 full-size Hershey’s chocolate bars
- 16-ounce package of large marshmallows
- graham crackers for dipping
SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS
Chocolate: While we love Hershey’s bars for their milk chocolate flavor, you can switch up the brand of bars or even pick one that has something extra – what about Caramilk for some hints of gooey caramel in your dip?
HOW TO MAKE THIS S’MORES DIP RECIPE
STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 400°F.
STEP TWO: In a greased cast iron skillet, place chocolate in a single layer on the bottom of the pan. Top with marshmallows.
PRO TIP: It works best if you break the chocolate into small pieces.
STEP THREE: Cook for 10 – 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until marshmallows are golden brown.
PRO TIP: Keep a close eye on your marshmallows so they don’t burn.
STEP FOUR: Let the skillet sit for 5 minutes. Serve with graham crackers for dipping.
PRO TIP: Letting the dip sit for a few minutes will give the hot skillet time to cool a bit so no one burns their hands on the edges when digging in.
HOW TO SERVE
Serve this easy oven s’mores dip with graham cracker squares for dipping and enjoy the gooey deliciousness! Graham crackers are always my go-to. They are classic with s’mores and work well for dipping because they tend to hold up well and don’t break as you dip them!
However, you can get creative with your dipping options! Try a salty and sweet version by dipping potato chips in your s’mores dip. Another option for salty-sweet lovers is pretzels.
Besides crunchy graham crackers, I also like to dip vanilla wafers as well or if I’m really in a chocolate mood, I will break out the Oreo cookies! If I am trying to keep it a bit on the “healthier side” we will go with fresh fruit such as apples or strawberries.
IN THE FRIDGE: This skillet s’mores dip is best served right out of the oven. If you do have any leftovers, you can cover the pan and store it in the fridge for a couple of days.
REHEATING: Reheat in the oven at 350°F for 5 minutes until the chocolate is nice and melted again.
Who doesn’t love s’mores? I don’t think you can go wrong with the melty chocolate and fluffy marshmallows combination. Kids go crazy for this gooey s’mores dip recipe. You can easily throw it together, with very little ingredients or time required, and it’s a recipe that’s bound to get you loads of praise from the kids. Make sure you get a couple of dips in quickly because chances are, it won’t last long!
You may use another type of oven-safe baking dish, either a square baking dish or pie dish, but note that the chocolate will probably melt more evenly (and stay melted more consistently) using a heavy cast iron pan, which retains heat better than other types of dishes.
You may use your favorite type of chocolate or marshmallows. Finely chopped chocolate, mini chocolate chips, regular semi-sweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, (halved) jumbo marshmallows, regular marshmallows, etc. will all work. You could even mix dark chocolate, peanut butter, or white chocolate chips into the regular chips.
This dip is best eaten fresh because the marshmallows will soften when reheated. That being said, you can reheat it if you do have leftovers. Warm in the oven at 350°F for 5 minutes until the chocolate is gooey again.
