S’mores Dip

If you’re looking for a fun and easy way to enjoy s’mores without the mess of roasting marshmallows, try making a s’mores dip.

S’mores Nachos

For a twist on traditional s’mores, try making s’mores nachos. Start with a layer of graham crackers on the bottom of a cast-iron skillet or aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Top with a layer of chocolate chips and mini marshmallows, then repeat the layers until you’ve used up all your ingredients. Heat over the campfire until the chocolate is melted and the marshmallows are toasted, then serve with additional graham crackers for scooping.

Heat over the campfire until the marshmallows are toasted and the chocolate is melted, then slice and serve.

S’mores Ice Cream Sandwiches
