Have you ever wanted to make s’mores, but you couldn’t because you didn’t have access to a campfire or fire pit?
Oh, you haven’t?
Yeah, me neither.
But just in case you ever get that desire, this recipe is perfect. It’s just s’mores in dip form, which makes it the perfect rendition of the quintessential summer dessert without having to build a fire, smelling like a bonfire afterwards, getting bit by mosquitoes, or any of the other side effects of making actual s’mores.
Can you tell I’m totally not a fan of the outdoors? #diva
My recipe is adapted from this one. I made a few simple changes and the recipe turned out great, so feel free to mix it up to find your preferred chocolate-to-marshmallow ratio.
2 cups chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate)
1 cup little marshmallows, plus extra for topping
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup crushed graham crackers ( put some crackers in a ziplock and crush with heel of your hand)
Graham crackers, strawberries, animal crackers, etc. for dipping
Place chocolate chips, milk and 1 cup of marshmallows in a saucepan. Heat on LOW, stirring constantly until melted. It’s important to keep the stove on a low setting and stir often to keep the chocolate from burning. Burnt chocolate is not your friend.
Pour into a broil-safe container, making sure there is room on the top for the crushed graham crackers and marshmallows.
Sprinkle the crushed graham crackers onto the chocolate mixture. It’s okay if the chocolate is starting to harden…it’ll melt again in the next step.
Cover the top with marshmallows. Turn on the broiler, and broil for about 30 seconds to 2 minutes, until the marshmallows are done to your liking. Don’t take your eyes off of it, because the broiler can take things to fire extinguisher necessary in the blink of an eye!
Serve with anything that goes nicely with chocolate 😉
DISCLAIMER: Do NOT make this dessert if you live alone and don’t have company, or if you, oh I don’t know, live with a husband who hates chocolate. You will end up eating almost the entire bowl in one sitting. And then, because it is so sugary and rich, you’ll feel nauseated for the next three days. I know from experience, guys. I took one for the team. Not one of my finest moments, but it’s not like I wanted to eat it all. It was all in the name of responsible blogging, y’all. I swear!
