No-Bake S’mores Dip
I have always had a huge love affair with s’mores. From the time I was a kid, I couldn’t resist a freshly toasted marshmallow in all of its ooey, gooey glory. When I was in high school, my dad built a little bonfire pit behind our swimming pool so that anytime we had friends over, we could sit around a fire once the sun went down and we always had a stash of marshmallows in the pantry. My parents’ house was surrounded by woods, so we toasted marshmallows the old-fashioned way – on sharp sticks that we pulled off of trees!
Sometimes, though, you don’t have a fire and you still want a s’more! Last winter when I was pregnant, I would regularly make myself a s’more in the evening using our gas stove. You do what you gotta do, right?! This simple dip delivers all the great flavors of s’mores without needing to stand over a campfire to make one.
Remember a couple of weeks ago when we talked about chocolate ganache? I might have said that I could eat it with a spoon. Well, we’re going to eat it with graham crackers (and marshmallows, of course!). Using a modified ganache recipe instead of just straight chocolate ensures that the chocolate stays creamy and easily dippable (is that a word?). I’ve found that melted chocolate that’s allowed to sit can kind of clump up and get a weird consistency, so the addition of cream solves that problem.
I used my kitchen torch to toast the marshmallows on top, but you could always pop this into the oven under the broiler for a couple of minutes to achieve the same effect.
For me, it’s not summer without s’mores and this dip means that I can eat s’mores anytime, with or without a fire for toasting marshmallows!

- Place the chopped chocolate in a medium bowl; set aside.

So cool! I made this for my family a couple days ago & had leftovers, which we had again the next night. Still had leftovers. So I made some vanilla ice cream in my machine & then put a huge scoop of the dip and swirled it around & chopped up graham crackers for the top. YUM!!! Thanks for this awesome easy recipe!
GIRL! This is EVIL – Great idea! Thanks so much!
Made this tonight. It was really good but the chocolate was very thin.
Sometimes when I’m over my parent’s house, I’ll use their gas stove to make
s’mores because my oven in my apartment is electric. I really need to buy a torch so I can make this dip any day of the week!
Can’t wait to make this over the weekend! I’m actually going to make two, one just like this and one using peanut butter cups as the base!
This looks very dangerous – and I can’t wait to try it! Need to find a party to take it to though or I will be in serious trouble!
Oh my goodness, yum! I cannot wait to try this out!
Oh my! This looks amazing, however, I still like old fashion s’mores better. But I will definitely give this a shot.
This looks delicious, and I’m thinking about bringing it to a potluck on the 4th. Will the chocolate really stay “dippable” for hours? Fingers crossed!
I have the same question – I’d like to bring it to a Ladies Night Out. It looks perfect for a fun night with friends.
I just did this yesterday and it stayed gooey throughout a potluck sitting outside in the warm weather. I’m confident it would have been dippable even inside for several hours. Enjoy your Ladies Night Out!
Yes, it will! Enjoy!
This looks delicious!! :) I HAVE to try this out, I have never eaten smores before in my entire life. We do not bake those here in Europe. But I do love Marshmallows (I have tries them like 4 times) Yumm.
I look forward to making this dip for our family! (FYI, the ice cream truffle link goes to donuts and ice cream. Bet its July 22 instead of 2).
Have a great 4th! Enjoy that adorable growing boy!
Ahh, you’re right! I fixed it, thank you! :)
This looks dangerously addicting!
