S’mores – Now With Less Camping!

Smores Dip

You’re welcome and I’m sorry. When you try this Smores Dip you’ll understand.

For those who can’t wait, here’s why: It’s addictive and a super-convenient way to easily eat the equivalent of 7 or 8 Smores in one sitting when you’d normally have 1 or 2.

Don’t want to sleep in a tent? Not interested in being eaten by a bear? Prefer forks instead of eating off of a dirty stick you found on the ground? Good news! None of this crap is necessary anymore! Whee!

I’ve seen variations where the recipe uses peanut butter cups instead of chocolate chips and this sounds pretty amazing. I haven’t tried it yet because frankly, I’m scared. Scared that I will eat the entire thing alone and I try not to do things that I can’t undo and I am positive that I would be wearing that forever.

Tip: A key element of Smores Dip is smooth, melted chocolate. To ensure success, make sure there isn’t any water in the pan at any time and keep all liquids away from the chocolate after it has melted. The first time I made this I added vanilla thinking it was a great idea and it wasn’t at all – The chocolate seized right up and it was then dry and crumbly instead of smooth and melted. It was still edible but it sure wasn’t easy to scoop up with a graham cracker stick.

If you happen to seize your chocolate, here’s some info from CraftyBaking.com on how to fix it or what to do with it if it’s beyond repair.
