Smores dip recipe using a cast iron skillet in the oven.

Smores Dip recipe

Hey-o! I’m back with a new video! (Did you catch that rhyme there?) I’ll curb my enthusiasm right here. You’re welcome.

So, I made a bunch of videos for you a while ago–back when I was skinny and had a bad haircut. I’m glad one of those things is living on. Baby weight is the worst!

When I was pregnant, everyone told me the weight would fall right off while I was breastfeeding. Do you know what they tell me now? Now, they say the weight comes off after I finish breastfeeding. In, like, a year or more. I’m keeping a list of the people who lied to me about pregnancy weight gain. Those people will never taste my famous s’mores dip recipe.

S'mores dip

This is the original smores dip. The original indoor smores recipe. This is the best way to have smores without the campfire in the comfort of your own home.

Undeniably, this is one of my most popular recipes on the site. But, for every 10 comments I receive from people saying that they made it and loved it, I get one comment from someone who says it didn’t work for them.

So, I decided to make a video to show you exactly how I make it.

The primary reason people struggle with this smores dip recipe is because the chocolate seizes and hardens, which is caused by it getting too hot. So, if this recipe isn’t working for you, check your oven temperature and bake the dip for less time. You may even lower the oven temperature by 25 degrees. If the marshmallows don’t toast enough for your liking with these alterations, use a culinary torch to toast them. That’s a link to the exact torch I use in my kitchen.

I also use my torch to make this smores tart.

Ok, onto the video!—>

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 8 large marshmallows
  • graham crackers, for dipping

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450.
  2. 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.)
  3. 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.
  4. Serve with graham crackers for scooping.

Notes

I was inspired by my favorite magazine, Taste of the South.
