Happy National S’mores Day, everyone! If there was ever a food recognition day that I can wholeheartedly embrace, it would be this one. Because, let’s face it…who doesn’t love s’mores?! I mean, it doesn’t get any better than silky, melted chocolate and gooey, toasted marshmallows sandwiched between crunchy graham cracker squares.

Wait. Actually, it does get better. And you’re looking at it! How would you like to make enough s’more-y goodness to feed a crowd, without having to put together individual s’mores and without necessitating a campfire? Now don’t get me wrong…I love making s’mores the old-fashioned way. But this little method is easier, faster, less messy, and doesn’t put you at risk for campsite mosquito bites. It’s an effortless way to enjoy s’mores year-round, and it’s a sweet treat that is sure to quickly vanish at your next party or get-together.

This is one of those recipes that’s so brainless, I hardly feel justified calling it a recipe. Simply toss some chocolate chips in a skillet or oven-safe dish. Top with jumbo marshmallow halves. Toast for 5 or so minutes, pull out the graham crackers, and voilà! Dippable s’mores that will have your gang scraping the skillet for every last smudge of chocolate and streak of marshmallow.

Use your favorite type of chocolate…milk chocolate, semi-sweet, or a combo would all be equally delicious.

If you don’t have jumbo marshmallows, mini marshmallows will work just as well. If your skillet is larger or smaller than mine, simply adjust the proportions accordingly. Seriously, you can eyeball the amount of chocolate and marshmallows to your liking and this dip will turn out perfectly fine.

Noooo, you really can’t mess this up…unless you scorch your marshmallows, so be sure to watch them carefully and pull your skillet out of the oven when they’re to your desired level of toastiness.

This S’mores Dip is guaranteed to be a hit. In fact, my youngest taste tester declared it the best thing she’d eaten all week. Well, she didn’t exactly use those words, but she did gobble up her loaded graham cracker with a big smile on her face before requesting another. When I told her that one was enough, her face registered shock and she started wailing, “I wan sa MOOOORE!” That’s toddler for “some more,” which made me realize that if an almost 2-year-old can nail the definition of a s’more without even realizing what it’s called, then whoever originally invented these little treats apparently named them appropriately. 😉

So what are you waiting for? Rummage through your pantry for some chocolate chips and a bag of marshmallows and whip thee up some S’mores Dip! And if you hurry, you still have time to enjoy it on National S’mores Day, when rumor has it that calories from said treats don’t actually count. 😉

S’mores Dip

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

S’mores Dip

S'mores Dip -- loaded with melted chocolate and toasty marshmallows -- is sure to be the hit of your next party! After just a few minutes in the oven, serve it with graham crackers and watch it disappear.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (semi-sweet, milk chocolate, or a combo)
  • 15 jumbo marshmallows, halved
  • Graham cracker squares

Instructions

  1. Adjust rack to center position of oven and place 8-inch cast iron skillet on rack. Preheat oven to 450°F with skillet inside. Once oven is preheated, use a pot holder to remove hot skillet from the oven. Place pat of butter in the skillet and use a pot holder to hold the handle and swirl the skillet so that the melted butter coats the bottom and sides. Pour chocolate chips in an even layer into the bottom of the skillet. Taking care not to burn fingers on the sides of the skillet, arrange marshmallow halves over the surface of the chocolate chips, covering the chocolate completely. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until marshmallows are toasted to your preference (watch closely!). Use an oven mitt to remove the skillet from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Serve immediately with graham cracker squares or sticks...but be careful, because the dip (and the skillet) will be very hot!

Notes

You may use another type of oven-safe baking dish, but it should be noted that the chocolate will probably melt more evenly (and stay melted more consistently) using a heavy cast iron skillet, which retains heat better than other types of dishes.

Be sure to let the skillet rest for 5 minutes before serving so that the residual heat from the skillet can finish melting the chocolate chips. Some of the chocolate chips may retain their shape, but once you dip a graham cracker into them, they should be fully melted (in the same way that chocolate chips melted in the microwave hold their shape until stirred).

Adjust the proportions of chocolate and marshmallows to your liking or to the size of the skillet or baking dish that you use, but don't make the layer of chocolate chips too thick or they may not fully melt.

You may use whatever type of chocolate or marshmallows you have on hand...finely chopped chocolate, mini chocolate chips, regular chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, (halved) jumbo marshmallows, etc.

  1. My mouth is watering just looking at the recipe! Thanks for sharing!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Thanks, Ellie…it’s hard to beat melted chocolate and toasted marshmallows, right? 😉 Hope you enjoy this if you try it!

      • Saw your recipe in a flyer in the newspaper and then lost the recipe. Hunted high and low for it on the internet in my computer and could not find it. Told my husband about my dilemma and he found it on his phone as quick as a wink. Well my question is how do you clean the iron pan after using it. My husband likes to cook with the iron pans and takes care of cleaning them after he cooks with them with a wipe of a paper towel and water. This does not seem to be an easy clean up. my husband says no to soap.

        • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

          Hi Jackie! If the cast iron skillet is well-seasoned and you coat it with melted butter as directed and you don’t let any leftover dip completely harden in it before cleaning, it shouldn’t be too difficult to wipe clean. However, if your hubby is particular about how he cleans his cast iron skillet, I think the most fool-proof way to keep it pristine while making this recipe is to line the pan with aluminum foil (or parchment paper) first! The dip will still melt thanks to the excellent heat conduction and retention of the cast iron, but clean-up will be as easy as removing the foil. Hope that helps…enjoy!

        • Amanda Joy says:

          Put water in it and heat on stove till boiling, scrape with metal spatrula, pour out water and wipe clean with paper towel. Or just use some chainmale to wipe it clean.

  2. Mark and Lorena says:

    Just made this in a smaller size with a bread loaf pan and it turned out absolutely wonderful and just like the pictures! Really appreciated the heating of the pan and adding butter and halving the marshmallows; all the directions were spot on. Such a delicious and easy take on the traditional s’mores! Definitely going to continue using your recipes!!!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      I’m so happy y’all enjoyed this, and I’m glad the directions helped you make it successfully! Hope y’all equally enjoy any other recipes from the site that you decide to try… 🙂 Happy 4th!

  3. Candace says:

    Just another tip…I made this dip today to take to a cook out and I was afraid that it would get hard before I got to the party. So I added two tablespoons of Canola oil to the chocolate chips. I know from using a chocolate fountain that this will raise the fat content in the chocolate and keep it liquid. IT WORKED GREAT! The chocolate remained melted and “scoopable” the entire day.

  4. Love this idea! My kids loves smores. Never thought about doing this. Thanks for an awesome recipe thats so easy and delicious!

  5. I made this tonight with my family! It was so easy and fun to make and eat! Thank you so much for the idea! We will be doing it again!

    I used a pie pan sitting on a foil lined cookie sheet. Oven at 450 degrees for 5 to 6 minutes. I placed 2 Hershey’s Bars in the pie pan, placed the marshmallows on and around until all the chocolate was covered than put in oven! It came out delicious!

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      So glad your family enjoyed it, Robin! And thanks for sharing your tips/modifications…I’m sure they’ll help someone else. 🙂

  6. Amanda Joy says:

    It was very good. The chocolate was a it powdery, but ther than that it was great. I used part chocolate chips and part peanut butter chips. What would you store it in??? I tried a Tupperware but it was rather sticky. It’s really easy and I’m just 11.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      So glad you enjoyed it, Amanda Joy! The chocolate can get powdery if it’s cooked too long, or it could have been because of the peanut butter chips you added…those don’t always melt as smoothly as regular chocolate chips. As far as storing it, I would recommend a glass Pyrex-type dish for easy reheating…but I think the marshmallows are going to be sticky/messy in just about any type of container! 😉

  7. Thank you very much for the recipe! Well, chocolate chips doesn’t exist here so I thought maybe I can replace it with chocolate bars. I put them into small pieces and I did other parts as you’ve said. It didn’t go well and chocolate was nearly burned instead of melting! But the taste was not so bad except a little of too sweet! I think it was because of the type of chocolate I’d used.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Sorry to hear it burned, Rammi! I hope you have better luck if you decide to try it again with a different type of chocolate… 🙂

  8. cecilia w. says:

    Im making this for a crowd, I do have a nice size cast iron skillet my ques to u is im feeding a large crowd can it sit for awhile like 2 hrs. or no, taking it to a potluck party and it has to sit for 2 hrs before getting eaton, plz help i would really like to make this, i hope to hear from u.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Hi Cecilia! The cast iron skillet will keep the chocolate melted for awhile, but I’m afraid it will start to harden well before two hours are up. A previous comment suggested stirring a bit of vegetable oil into the chocolate chips to keep them smooth and melted (as is done with the chocolate in a chocolate fountain), but I haven’t personally tried that. Hope you’re able to try this recipe another time if it doesn’t end up working out for this particular potluck party. 🙂 Happy Friday!

  9. Woah. All your ads really get in the way of the flow of your posts. It’s hard to even make it through. Looks like a great recipe… I’m too tired of getting through the ads to look any further into your blog.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Hi Jessica! I’m sorry to hear that. I genuinely try to keep the ads on my site as unobtrusive as possible. I don’t allow pop-up ads or ads that overlay my photos (even though they generate the most revenue) because I want users to have a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, on mobile (I’m assuming you were looking at my site from your phone?), the only way to place ads is to intersperse them in the posts. I just looked at this post on my phone and, while the ads were there, I was able to scroll through and read the content with no problem. I wish that I didn’t have to use ads at all; however, I put 30 to 40 hours of work into this blog each week, and I’m not able to dedicate that kind of time away from my family without treating this as a full-time job. I spend all of that time creating FREE content and recipes for anyone who cares to stop by. The trade-off is that in exchange the free recipe, a reader has to scroll past a few ads. I don’t think that’s an unfair trade-off, and I find that corporate-run recipe sites have far more (and far more obtrusive) ads than most blogs. Anyway, I appreciate your feedback. Just wanted to explain why most blogs have any ads at all… 🙂

  10. I LOVE s’mores dip. Ever since I saw the idea on Pinterest I’ve been a fan. I love the version that the Dating Divas used, which uses reeses cups as the chocolate. I wanted to try it that way but my husband doesn’t like peanut butter :/ I made my own variation, however, which I LOVE, where I use brownies as the chocolate. OMG. This is an example of when a crazy idea actually works out!

  11. MeaghanOfLach says:

    I have made these twice now. The first round the chips did not melt evenly. My fault, didn’t measure! The second time perfection! I used the bottom of my measuring cup to tamp down the chips so they were evenly spread. Then quickly topped with the marshmallows. 7 min later….YUM!!! Definitely a dish to share. Tried to eat first batch alone, way too much! Even in my small cast iron of 8″. Will try again with our 4″ pans for indivdual servings.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      I’m so glad you decided to give this recipe a second try and that it turned out great with correct measurements! And I love the idea of cute little individual servings… 🙂

  12. This is so great! I was looking for a campout sleepover fun dish I could make for my son’s friend (he can’t have milk). So I just used dairy free chocolate chips!

  13. Erin kollman says:

    Hi I love this recipe but I don’t have an oven on hand. Could you possibly use a microwave? Please respond asap!

  14. Fun, easy, delicious. We have made these several times now!
