S’mores Dip Recipe

You can always bring the s’mores to the fire, but you can’t always bring the fire to the s’mores. If you’re trapped inside during a global pandemic and you still want the melty, chocolately goodness of a s’more but can’t build a log cabin on your living room floor to do it, this can offer a great alternative that the whole gang can get in on. This recipe gives you the steps for a tasty s’more dip that can feed a lot of people, especially because most won’t be able to put away more than two or three graham crackers dipped in this.

Maybe that person with the sweet tooth will prove me wrong, but with 12 Hershey chocolate bars going in, I doubt it.

Our ingredients all came from Aldi (and it turned out great) but you can find all of them on Amazon, too, which will let you stay fully secluded and not get exposed to any global pandemics (if we have that sort of thing happening, cough cough).

Next, do something similar to the first chocolate layer. It’s okay if these overlap. It’s too bad our crock pot isn’t see-through. Before impaling this with graham crackers for the s’mores, it would be pretty cool to look at it from the side.

Smooth out that layer of marshmallows on the top. At this point, it’s time to let the stack of marshmallows and Hershey’s chocolate stew for a little while. Good s’mores dip takes time.

This is pretty sugary, so be sure to pace yourself if you plan on having a few graham crackers dipped in there. I burned the roof of my mouth pretty badly on the taste test because I dropped a glob of molten chocolate in and chomped down. Eat responsibly.
