Do you ever have that magic ‘moment’? No, I’m not talking about that special incident or the first time you actually realized you were in love with your spouse or SO (although that is a pretty special one), or even any of the magical moments that followed. Fast forward several years, and I’m talking about that magic (mom) moment where you put something so extremely awesome in front of your kids, that you’ve actually made, that they actually look at you like you’re magic (protection from closet monster & healing boo-boo kisses aside)
S’mores Dip does it. Every. Single. Time.
All the mystic powers of the s’more, and all that obey, gooey melted chocolate, toasted marshmallow, graham cracker magic, without any of the fire power.
If you want to ‘wow’ your crowd, this is most definitely the way to go!
1/2 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (semi-sweet, milk chocolate, or a combo)
jumbo marshmallows, or minis work fine too
Graham cracker squares
- Adjust rack to center position of oven and place 8-inch cast iron skillet on rack. Preheat oven to 450°F with skillet inside. Once oven is preheated, use a pot holder to remove hot skillet from the oven. Place pat of butter in the skillet and use a pot holder to hold the handle and swirl the skillet so that the melted butter coats the bottom and sides. Pour chocolate chips in an even layer into the bottom of the skillet. Taking care not to burn fingers on the sides of the skillet, arrange the marshmallows over the surface of the chocolate chips, covering the chocolate completely. 2. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until marshmallows are toasted to your preference (watch closely!). 3. Use an oven mitt to remove the skillet from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Serve immediately with graham cracker squares or sticks…but be careful, because the dip (and the skillet) will be very hot!
- Alternatively, use a microwave, or a double boiler, to melt the chocolate chips and butter, and stir together until evenly combined. Pour the chocolate out into an oven safe baking dish. Arrange the marshmallows over the surface of the melted chocolate. Place the dish under the broiler, just long enough to toast the marshmallows to your preference (watch closely!) Serve immediately with graham cracker squares, or sticks. This dip also pairs well with fresh strawberries!
