S'Mores Dip, an ooey gooey chocolate and marshmallow combination to keep the oven baked campfire in your kitchen. You will love this hot melted milk chocolate with delicious amazing marshmallows and a toasted topping. You need nothing more than a graham cracker or a cookie to start dipping up on this delicious dessert - just like camping without the bugs!
Add milk chocolate chips, milk and butter to a saucepan.
Heat chocolate chips over low to medium low heat, stirring constantly until chocolate is melted, careful not to overmix. Please note you have to be super patient here and melt the chocolate SLOW or it will burn.
Once the butter and chocolate are all melted, stir in 1 cup of mini marshmallows and continue to heat and mix constantly until all marshmallows are completely melted. I find using a spatula works best here.
Pour the chocolate mixture into a 2 quart casserole dish and spread evenly, working quickly so chocolate is still melted and warm.
Sprinkle the rest of the mini marshmallows on top of the dip.
Broil marshmallows on LOW for 2-4 minutes or until marshmallows are puffy and browned, which takes just a few minutes. Please note that broilers work fast once heated, so its advisable to stand near the oven and check every 10 seconds once the you notice the marshmallows are browning.
Serve S'mores Dip immediately with graham crackers, cookies, or strawberries.
Working with Chocolate
As always, when working with chocolate recipes, you have to work slow. There are no cutting corners when it comes to melting chocolate.
Chocolate quickly burns OR turns into a solid hard rock, so you have to take your time melting down the chocolate chips and the marshmallows. Keep your saucepan on LOW, which takes about 10 minutes of steady stirring to meltdown.
Second, I am the queen of burning things in the broiler – when you move to the broiling portion of this recipe to golden brown and melt the marshmallows in the oven, you have to keep an eye there. Marshmallows are food items that burn quickly, so I recommend NOT walking away when making this dip.
Can S'mores dip be made in the microwave? It can, but I do not recommend it. Chocolate easily seizes up in the microwave, and it becomes a mess. If you choose to make this dessert dish in the microwave, melt chocolate only at 30-second intervals. Can you reheat S'mores Dip? S'mores dip can generally be heated again by placing the baking dish back in the oven until the chocolate and marshmallows are fully melted again.
