Let me guess…it’s cold outside where you are? Thought so.
This is the second year in my life where I’ve had to deal with snow. Oh, sure we’d get a slight dusting of snow in Texas every so often. It would disappear almost as quickly as it came, but not before halting all civilization. Texans aren’t made for driving in the white stuff. If you’re driving in snow and see a Texas license plate, I beg you, please pull over and let them slide pass you. You’ll thank me later. In California, the winter is just foggy and drizzly with rain. I miss that cozy fog. But this Midwest snow? I just don’t know about it yet.
If I could fast forward passed this winter and have it be summertime again, I would do it in a heartbeat for you. Let’s pretend the days are warm and the nights are just cool enough for a campfire. A campfire with s’mores! Wait, back to reality: we’re making s’mores in the oven today. With a cast iron skillet. Oh, yes we are!
I used my mini 6″ cast iron skillet, just like I would if I was using an outdoor campfire instead of my oven. Fill it with your favorite chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate chips) and top with marshmallows. Bake in the oven until nice and toasty. Then, scoop it all up with graham crackers.
Let’s gather around the stove and pretend it’s a campfire, and scoop up this melted chocolate goodness and toasted marshmallow gooeyness with graham crackers! You can use mini marshmallows, large marshmallows, or even homemade marshmallows. All kinds of marshmallows are delicious. Fact.
Case in point:
I hope this recipe warms you up in this cold winter season!
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 8 large marshmallows
- graham crackers for dipping
- Preheat the oven to 450.
- In a cast iron skillet, add the chocolate chips. Snip the large marshmallows in half and top the chocolate chips with them. (You could also use a scoop of mini marshmallows alternatively.)
- Once the oven is up to temperature, add the skillet to the oven. Bake for 7-9 minutes, or until the marshmallows turn golden brown.
- Serve with graham crackers for scooping.
