I swear I eat this s’mores dip more year round than traditional s’mores during the summer months. It has all my favorite things: chocolate, marshmallows, and cast iron skillets.
Nothing in the world makes me think “summer” more than the word s’more. Every summer I look forward to stocking up on Hershey’s chocolate bars, marshmallows, and graham crackers so I can get my s’more on. But for a long while I lived in an apartment where small fires are generally frowned upon. With that being the case I had to get creative with my s’mores making skills.
I’ve used the microwave, the stovetop, and the oven. And let me say that there isn’t much that’s more satisfying than smooshing a gooey marshmallow between two graham crackers and watching as the chocolate melts and the marshmallow oozes around your fingers. You won’t even notice until you go to get in your car or change the TV channel or make dinner and find your hands all sticky.
So I bring you this gloriously fast and easy s’mores dip that starts on the stove and finishes in the oven and only takes about 10 minutes. And it is good. Like you may never want to make a traditional s’more again good. Like s’mores aren’t just for summer anymore good.
These s’mores are perfect in the oven if your cookout gets rained out, it’s too hot to stand over a grill, or you just flat out need some s’more action in the middle of winter. BUT if you do have access to a grill these would be just as perfect done on the grill or even over a campfire provided you have one of those little grates. I wouldn’t recommend sticking it right in the fire unless you have a fancy cast iron skillet with a lid.
However you decide to enjoy this treat you won’t be sorry you did! This dip is the perfect way to celebrate the end of the work week with a few friends over to play your favorite board game, revel in the beginning of the summer with the kiddos, or to take to a friend’s house for a cookout or pot luck! And also to use your cast iron skillet.
- 1 cup Hershey's chocolate chip
- 7-8 Jet Puffed marshmallows
- 1 package Honeymaid Graham Crackers broken into quarters
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Heat the 5" cast iron skillet over medium low heat until warm and then turn the burner off. Add chocolate chips and allow to begin to melt while you cut marshmallows.
Cut marshmallows in half and lay cut side down over melting chocolate.
Place in oven and brown marshmallows for 3-4 minutes*
Serve with graham crackers and enjoy!
*Keep a close watch on marshmallows to prevent them from burning.
