Whether you’re gathering for game day, a night with girlfriends or need a sweet, easy treat for your family, this Easy S’mores Dessert Dip will hit the spot!
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.
Easy S’mores Dessert Dip
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.
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 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 ’70’s????
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, buy quality ingredients. I like Kraft Marshmallow Creme. There are probably some generic brands around, but play it safe and buy the Kraft.
Also, don’t cheap out on the fudge sauce. With only 3 ingredients, all must be the best available to you. Read the label and the less 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/
