Why You Should Make Dessert Dips

  • This easy s’mores dessert dip is only 3 ingredients and perfect for game day, summer parties, afterschool snacks, and more. The classic s’mores recipe takes me back to those family picnics along the Roaring Fork outside of Aspen.
  • Dessert Dips are a fun, interactive way to gather with your guests or family.
  • It’s perfect for the summer holidays, plus it’s easier and less messy than making traditional s’mores over your grill or campfire.

Year after year, my parents, 3 sisters, and I piled into our unairconditioned Plymouth Satellite station wagon and drove across Iowa, Nebraska, and over the Rockies in Colorado to spend a couple of weeks in the quiet, picturesque ski town for our summer vacation.

It was a given we’d grill brats or burgers over a wood fire at a couple of our favorite picnic sites: the Maroon Bells and the grottos. We’d gather perfect s’mores grilling sticks for our marshmallows, catch a few on fire, and were all a sticky mess when it was time to leave the campsite.

Better Than S’mores!

Honestly, s’mores were never a favorite treat, but it was all about the experience. But I do love s’mores inspired desserts like these S’mores Fudge Bars, S’mores Brownies, S’mores Cookie Cake, and Mini S’mores Tarts. So that’s how this easy s’mores dessert dip came to fruition.

I’m much more selective about my desserts nowadays, and this s’mores dip seemed worth a shot.  The basic recipe was a piece of cake to throw together, plus the taste was out of this world.  Minimal ingredients, a mixer, and some dippers, and that’s it! Where was this back in the ’70s????

Frequently Asked Questions

What does S’mores Mean?

S’mores is a contraction, or shortened form, of the phrase “Some More.” Legend is that when this campfire treat was first tried, fans asked for s’more.

Who Invented S’mores?

A recipe for S’mores was first published in a cookbook in the 1920s where it was called a Graham Cracker Sandwich. But it was already a well-established treat with both the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts before this time. In 1927, the recipe for Some More was published in Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. Via Wikipedia.

What Was in the Original S’mores Recipe?

S’mores have always been made of 3 simple ingredients: A campfire roasted or toasted marshmallow, part of a chocolate bar, and two graham crackers. Skewers or sticks are also needed for toasting the marshmallows.

Tips for Making This S’mores Dip Recipe

There is nothing complicated involved when putting together this s’mores dip recipe! But a few recommendations will make it a breeze to prepare.

  • First, purchase quality ingredients. I like Kraft Marshmallow Creme. There are probably some generic brands around, but play it safe and buy the Kraft.
  • Also, buy a quality fudge sauce. With only 3 ingredients, all must be the best available to you. Read the label and the fewer artificial ingredients, the better. Chocolate should be at the top of the list!
  • Use a mixer, not a whisk to combine the ingredients. Marshmallow cream is very sticky and you’ll be frustrated trying to incorporate it by hand.
  • Have your cream cheese at room temperature or it will be hard to get the dip nice and smooth. I like to set it out on the counter about an hour before mixing. It can also be taken out of the box and immersed in warm water to speed up the process.
  • Then serve with your favorite dippers like the classic graham crackers, Teddy Grahams (do they still make those??), chocolate chip cookies, vanilla wafers, Fudge sticks, etc.
  • Garnish to up the experience and presentation, especially if serving to guests. I like using mini chocolate chips and mini marshmallows.
