September is here and I have never felt happier. Cooler temperatures, fall foods and drinks, football on the TV…me cuddled up on the couch with a blanket and our pup. Life does not get much better than this. On top of all this amazing-ness my fiance finally just got Sunday’s off and I am now able to spend Sunday’s with him (enter 5,000 heart emoji’s here).
With fall and cooler temperatures…comes bonfires….and with bonfires…comes S’MORES!! Yes, that toasty marshmallow goodness right smack dab in the middle of a thick piece of chocolate and crispy graham crackers. Nothing tastes as perfect as that first bite of a s’more where everything is just pouring out of each side onto your fingers. The chocolate melting into the marshmallow making a heavenly combination of chocolate-marshmallow. Nothing like it. I will say as much fun as it is licking the marshmallow off each finger…how much fun would it be to have all of that gooey goodness without the mess.
Yes, without the mess.
Then this simple, super easy s’more dip will be everything and more! I even kid-tested it this past weekend and it was seriously so much easier than loading each kid up with a stick and marshmallow and trying to get everything ready for when they bring over their fire infested marshmallow. I will agree – the best part about s’mores is making them to your liking and yes it is fun getting the chocolate and graham crackers ready, I know…but this is still amazing. AND this could be a substitute if you aren’t able to have a bonfire but still want to satisfy that s’more craving.
- 1 bag of regular size marshmallows
- 1 regular bag of semi-sweet chocolate morsels
- 1 box of graham crackers (broken up into sticks)
- 1 non-stick pan (trust me, don’t buy a cheap foil pan…the chocolate chips will not melt)
To begin get a pan out – make sure you read above that I truly suggest a traditional non-stick pan
Fill the pan with chocolate chips. You should use almost the full bag of chocolate chips. You don’t want to fill it to the top, just about half way
Next begin placing the marshmallows outlining the pan
Keep filling the pan until it is completely full
Next place it in the oven on 400 for 10-13 minutes
The picture above will be at about 8 -10 minutes, so I would suggest leaving it in for just a few more minutes when you see it just toasted at the top. You almost want the marshmallows to have a crisp to them so you know the chips are melted
Pull the dip out and get your graham crackers ready!
Take your graham cracker and dip all the way to the bottom of the pan (don’t want to miss ANY chocolate)
The chocolate will be melted just right and the marshmallows will be baked to perfection! I actually LOVE the more done marshmallows, they tend to have a nice crunch to them, which I like. I promise this was quick and easy to put together and was absolutely delicious. The kids loved them and there were no sticky fingers to clean up afterwards – yay!
