How to make kid-friendly s’mores dip over a campfire, on the grill, or in the oven at home. Easy camping dessert recipe you can enjoy anytime.

S’mores are the perfect way to end a busy week together as a family. And they’re an especially great way to enjoy time together around the campfire.

We love hanging out by a campfire, especially when we’re camping. When at home, we’ll even fill up a tray with all sorts of campfire goodies and head outside to the fire pit.  

Usually, we end up with a hodge podge assortment of whatever we have available, maybe hot dogs, the makings for s’mores, and our roasting sticks.

But we’re not always able to have a campfire due to burn bans and fire restrictions. No worries, though. This is one of my favorite shortcuts for how to make s’mores without a fire.

So whether you love the great outdoors or would rather enjoy a movie night in, this is the perfect dessert to share.

Sometimes we make “normal” s’mores, and sometimes we make s’mores dip, banana boats s’mores, or sugar cone s’mores.

HOW TO MAKE S’MORES DIP

Really, the only ingredients you need are graham crackers, mini marshmallows, and chocolate chips.

WHAT KIND OF GRAHAM CRACKERS SHOULD I USE?

You can use regular graham crackers and break them up, or you can use smaller graham crackers in different shapes, like Teddy Grahams or Goldfish Grahams.

If you’re wondering which crackers we used, I found these Teddy Grahams Outdoor Discoveries crackers at our grocery store, and they were perfect! They come in cute li’l outdoor shapes like butterflies, bumblebees, and leaves.

WHAT’S THE BEST CHOCOLATE FOR S’MORES?

I’ll tell ya, I love using semi sweet chocolate chips. But you can use any kind of chocolate, whether you love milk chocolate or dark chocolate.

HOW TO LAYER S’MORES IN A PAN

Layer your ingredients in a oven or campfire friendly skillet, preferably an 8-inch cast iron skillet or 10.25-inch cast iron skillet.

  • Add another layer of chocolate chips.
  • Then add a layer of graham crackers.
  • Add another layer of chocolate chips, then a top layer of mini marshmallows.

You can add as many or as few layers as you want; I say, the more the merrier.

HOW TO COOK S’MORES DESSERT DIP

On a Campfire or on a Grill: Put your skillet s’mores over the fire or on the grill for about 3 to 5 minutes, or until things begin to show signs of melting… Not too long or your bottom layer will burn.

In the Oven: Place the skillet in the oven at about 450° for about 5 to 10 minutes, or until things begin to show signs of melting… Again, not too long or your bottom layer will burn.

Don’t worry if the chocolate doesn’t look completely melted when you take it off the fire or out of the oven. Once you remove the skillet from the fire or oven, it will continue to radiate heat and melt the rest of your chocolate.

And if your marshmallows aren’t toasted enough for your liking, you can keep your pan over the heat for just a bit longer until you have perfectly toasted marshmallows.

These are not the type of s’mores you serve by hand; these are more the type of s’mores you dig in with a fork or a graham cracker, sharing the same skillet with the entire family.

  1. This looks amazing! I’m actually not a huge s’mores eater, but that is mainly because I find it to be such a messy, handheld snack. I would be so much more keen on this version since it uses a fork! Shared on my FB page tonight. See you tomorrow for Inspire Me Wednesday!

    • Thank you so much for sharing! Yes… these were definitely a LOT better in terms of not being quite so messy. Still a little messy but not all over the hands, at least.:)


  2. What a wonderful idea! Great for little ones and adults that prefer not to get too sticky. I’m going to try it at a picnic at our elderly housing next week. I’ll use it on the grill since we don’t have a fire pit. It’s sure to be a hit.
