The classic campfire treat gets an upgrade with this delicious s'mores dip recipe! Chocolate and marshmallow are combined into a melty goodness that can be scooped up with graham crackers, cookies, fresh fruit or plenty of other dippers!
There are certain flavor combinations that always inspire a yuummmm reaction. Chocolate, marshmallow and graham crackers is absolutely that for me.
I don't understand how some people only associate s'mores with camping. Camping is not for me. In fact, I love not camping. But s'mores? I could eat s'mores every day and never get tired of them.
But I do agree that sometimes eating one of those sandwiched treats at home doesn't feel right. Making them in the microwave changes the texture of the graham cracker. The marshmallow doesn't get that golden, toasted outer crust.
And, have you ever burnt chocolate or a graham cracker while microwaving? It happens so much faster than you might think.
And the smell. The smell of burning graham crackers will make you think your entire house is burning down. Your microwave will never smell ok after that.
So, there are absolutely better ways to enjoy the flavors of s'mores without attempting to recreate the exact camping treat indoors.
S'mores ice cream is an absolutely amazing treat that combines chocolate and marshmallow flavors into the base, and also mixes in graham crackers and more marshmallow bits. It's so good!
These S'mores cookies are always an amazing treat, but I especially love making them in the winter.

How to Make S'Mores Dip
The truth is, homemade s'mores dip is super easy. You just need to be careful with the baking time and temperature.
If you bake it too long or at too low of a temp and the marshmallows won't be soft and fluffy. They'll be hard and chewy.
If you bake it at too high of a temperature, the marshmallows will burn before the chocolate can melt.
So, just follow these instructions and you'll have a perfect dip to share!
1. Butter a 9-inch glass pie plate and pour spread chocolate chips evenly across the bottom.
Put marshmallows on top of the chocolate chips.
