Easy S’mores Dessert Dip
Whether for game day, a night with girlfriends, or a sweet, easy treat for your family, this Easy S’mores Dessert Dip will hit the spot! This twist on an iconic campfire treat takes just minutes to make and everyone will beg for the recipe!!
Much as I enjoyed toasting s’mores as a kid, this S’mores Dip Recipe is SO much tastier. And no charred, molten marshmallows needed.
Why You Must Make
- This easy s’mores dessert dip is only 3 ingredients and is perfect for game day, summer parties, afterschool snacks, and more.
- 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 a 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.
How to Make
- Mix together the cream cheese and marshmallow cream.
- Add the fudge sauce mix and taste. Add more fudge sauce if desired.
- Scrape into a serving bowl, garnish, and dig in!
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 in this recipe, 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 it 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.
