An easy, decadent summer dessert, this Skillet S’mores Dip will delight the kid in you! An easy interactive dessert that feeds your inner child!
This is the perfect way to enjoy all the flavors of the classic s’mores recipe when there’s no campfire!
Skillet S’mores Dip
I’d seen recipes for this sort of dip floating around the Internet—mostly composed of just a bag of chocolate chips and some larger or jumbo marshmallows. I decided to make a ganache instead, adding just one more step to an already easy peasy recipe.
So cream and chocolate were melted together in a skillet, followed by a layer of marshmallows that were toasted with a short stint under the broiler. Graham crackers were used as dippers for the classic s’mores experience. My gang all gave their seal of approval.
Fourth of July Treat
I shared this s’mores dip with my neighbors on the 4th of July. Some spooned the dip on their crackers, others used two graham crackers to make a more traditional s’mores sandwich.
Truly a classic American summer treat whether you toast your marshmallows over a campfire or broil them to a golden brown. I gently reheated the leftovers in the oven and the boys hovered over the skillet with spoons. Nick, after some deep thought, surmised that this dip was even better than regular s’mores. I call that a success!
How to Make this Easy S’Mores Dip Recipe
This will be the easiest treat in your repertoire! Minimal ingredients and maximum decadence!
- Decide whether you want milk chocolate or semisweet chocolate ganache for the base of your dip.
- This recipe uses chocolate chips for ease of availability, but you can always 12 ounces of chocolate bars, like Ghirardelli, for even smoother ganache.
- I like using the microwave as an easy way to melt the chocolate and cream. Make sure to use short time increments, stirring between stopping and restarting.
- A cast iron skillet is fun for presentation, but you can make this in a pie plate, too. Just make sure your dish is safe under the broiler.
- I used a 10-inch diameter skillet, but anything close to that size will work. Your dip will be thinner or thicker depending on whether you use a bigger or smaller vessel.
- Top the ganache with marshmallows. Broil carefully to brown and soften the marshmallows. PRO-Tip: Watch very carefully so you do not burn the topping.
- I like serving with graham crackers broken down into the small rectangles for perfect dipping, but other cookies will work well, too! Think fudge sticks, vanilla wafers, Biscoff cookies, etc.

- Large marshmallows, about 50 (will vary depending on size of your skillet)
- Graham crackers, separated, to use as dippers.
- Place cream and chocolate chips into a heat-safe bowl and microwave, stopping and stirring frequently, till almost completely melted. Let sit on the counter for a minute, stir till smooth.
- Pour into the bottom of a 9-inch cast-iron skillet. Alternatively, gently melt the chocolate chips and cream over low heat in the skillet. Stir till smooth.
- Preheat broiler. Cover surface of chocolate ganache with marshmallows. Broil for 1-5 minutes till marshmallows are toasted. Do not walk away from your oven or you topping may burn. Time depends on how close your pan is to the heating element.
