S’more Ways to Enjoy Your Favorite Summer Treat

My family and I absolutely love S’more’s. Over the years we have come up with multiple varieties on how to enjoy this summer treat but one of our favorite ways is to make it into a dip. This way you can enjoy it all year long. Do not get me wrong. I still love the classic where you roast the marshmallows over an open flame and add the delectable chewy substance with chocolate between graham crackers. But, when the cold weather hits, sitting out in the snow roasting marshmallows isn’t as appealing. So, I like to make a s’mores dip that will surely satisfy any craving. Let me walk you through.
You will need:
Oven safe skillet
2 packages of Marshmallows (you can use mini marshmallows if you want)
1 bag of chocolate chips (I love using milk chocolate but you can honestly use any flavor)
1 box of graham crackers broken into fourths
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Add package of chocolate chips to skillet. I like to use my cast iron but any oven safe skillet is fine. Also, size doesn’t matter either. It just depends on how many people will be enjoying this yummy treat. Put skillet into oven and bake for about 2 minutes until the chocolate is softened. Remove from oven and then arrange marshmallows on top of chocolate until covered.
Put skillet back into oven and warm marshmallows for about 2-3 minutes. You want the middle of the marshmallows to soften. Remove from oven and change oven setting to broil. I suggest putting broil to low so marshmallows do not catch fire. And yes, I have totally done that. Nothing like seeing the look on the kids faces as you open the oven and there is one giant flame. Once broil is ready, add the skillet back to oven and roast the tops of the marshmallows. You can broil them to your liking. Some like them a little brown while others like a dark crisp shell.

Use graham crackers to dip and enjoy. Some other varieties could be to use Reese’s Peanut Cups instead of chocolate chips, Nutella, or other flavors of baking chips. The possibilities are endless.
