No-Bake S’mores Dip

No-Bake S'mores Dip - No campfire needed! | browneyedbaker.com

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!
