Smores Dip

This easy smores dip recipe is the best way to enjoy the gooey goodness of the classic American sweet treat all year – no camp fire needed! The two-ingredient dip is a great way to use the last of your summer s’more stuff. It may be messy, but it’s oh-so-good! 

What is Smores Dip?

Enjoy the familiar flavor of the summertime dessert in dip form. Dunk graham crackers or fresh fruit into the delicious s’mores dip featuring a melty chocolate filling and gooey marshmallows toasted to perfection.

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Butter: Prepare an oven-safe pan with butter or a neutral oil before adding the ingredients.
  • Chocolate: Use whatever you prefer. I usually make the dip with Hershey’s milk chocolate like classic s’mores, but I’ve tried this easy recipe with Reese’s and melting chocolates with good results.
  • Marshmallows: I love how the smores dip looks and tastes with the jumbo marshmallows or large marshmallows made for s’mores.

Tools Used to Make this Recipe

All you need to make the chocolatey dip is an oven-safe pan. A cast-iron skillet is an obvious choice, but you can use a casserole dish, pie plate, or baking dish.

How to Make Smores Dip

The full recipe with measurements is in the recipe card below.  

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 325°F (163°C). Add chocolate to a prepared cast-iron skillet or baking dish in 1-2 layers, depending on how chocolatey you want the dip.

Step 2: Top the chocolate with a single layer of marshmallows.

Step 3: Place the dish in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes until the chocolate melts and the marshmallows puff up and turn golden brown.

Tip: Keep a close eye on the baking dish to ensure the marshmallows don’t catch fire or darken too quickly. 

Step 4: Remove the pan from the oven, drizzle melted chocolate over the top, and sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs to serve. Let it sit at room temperature for 5 minutes to cool before serving.

Expert Tips

  • Set the oven rack to the lower or middle position to prevent the marshmallows from scorching.
  • You may be tempted to broil the dip to speed up the process, but don’t. It will catch fire. Unfortunately, I know this from experience. I make mistakes, so you don’t have to.

Serving Suggestions

If you’ve ever bit into a s’more, you know how good this dessert dip is. I love topping it with melted chocolate and graham cracker crumbs, but you can also shave chocolate over the top or finish with milk chocolate chips. 

Serve the indoor smores with your favorite dippers like crunchy graham crackers, pretzel crisps, ritz crackers, vanilla wafers, animal crackers Oreo cookies, potato chips, or fresh fruit. I like apple slices, fresh strawberries, or thick slices of banana.

What to do with the Leftovers

  • Refrigerate: Cover the smores dip and refrigerate for 2-3 days.
  • Reheat: Warm the leftovers in the microwave in 20-second increments or cover the oven-safe dish with foil and warm the dip in a preheated oven at 325°F (162°C) for 5-10 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are s’mores called s’mores?

S’mores gets its name from the contraction of the phrase “some more” because once people have tasted the dessert, they say, “I want some more.” Eventually, the name stuck.

The first known recorded recipe for s’mores was in a Girl Scouts handbook in 1927, and since then, it has become a camp fire treat for people of all ages.

What makes a s’more a s’more?

The traditional method of making s’mores involves roasting gooey marshmallows over a fire pit before transferring toasty marshmallows to graham crackers loaded with milk chocolate bars.

The easy dip recipe is the next best thing that combines the two main ingredients in one dish, and you can scoop it with graham crackers.

I made this easy s'mores pie for a family gathering, and it was a hit! The four ingredients come together in minutes, and the pie tasted just like the classic campfire treat. I'll definitely be making this again soon.
